Brandy's is a great place for Sunday brunch with friends and/or family. The space is small, but comfortable. Reservations are needed due to limited space. We love the biscuits and gravy and french toast! They always have really interesting features and great brunch cocktails too....More

Brandy's has a delicious brunch menu every Sunday, I believe from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. They have the best dinner menu in this area. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night, you'll need a reservation. It has a very small, quaint atmosphere....More

We looked a at the menu online and as far as I know it should still be available on their website. I like to check it out before we go and kind of get an idea what I might order. Of course the waitstaff always has specials... More
