All the great things folks say about The Branch are true. Great selection, taste, presentation, value. With out-of-town visitors, here's the first restaurant we'd think of taking them.

The food and service at this restaurant is excellent. I also have many dietary restrictions, which they were able to accommodate easily. This is one of very few restaurants I am able to eat at, and the food was delicious despite my restrictions.

LOVE everything about this place. The food, the staff, the atmosphere, the beer. I love how obvious it is that the branch tries to keep it local and support their community. Hands down the best place in town for food and drinks
