Excellent food, quaint and authentic PA Chadds Ford ambiance and fast, friendly and prompt service. Blue Point Oysters, Tuba Tartare were great. Filet Mignon and the Barrel Ribeye were two of the best steaks I’ve ever had, anywhere. The “over 21” dessert was a great...finish. High quality and high prices to match but worth it. Will definitely return and definitely recommend.More

Seems like an authentic restaurant. Unusual, creative specials. The short ribs were fabulous. Waiter was friendly and knew his stuff. Good experience.

Prices were New York style but so was the service and the quality of the food. Drinks were good and potent. We sat inside as a hot night but tables were spaced apart and the staff wore masks.

Went out to dinner with co-workers after a business meeting. Great drinks! Great food. Didn’t have reservations but the gentleman at the door was super nice and accommodated us. Our waiter was very helpful and pleasant. I had the salmon with asparagus. Salmon portion was...petite. Was expecting a larger portion. Left feeling hungry. Only thing that I didn’t enjoy were the chairs and tables. Felt lopsided and table kept moving. My co-workers drink got spilled because of the table not being steady. Overall a good experience.More

Our onion soup, chicken sandwiches, and fries were good. We missed the energy we usually find on a Friday night, but the food was delivered on time, very hot, and by the friendly staff at the “to go” window. Thanks, Brandywine Prime. (We should have...ordered dessert!)More

First, you need to accept that this is a steakhouse, and the prices reflect that. They're high. The lowest price steak was $42, and the special porterhouse was $68. Also, there aren't a ton of non-grill options. But I love the atmosphere -- the restaurant...is in an historic inn but nicely updated. We sat in a booth that doesn't exactly offer privacy, but it was very comfortable and plenty of space for two. Our server was fantastic -- very professional, yet friendly. Water glass never went empty, and a finished plate never sat very long before being cleared. The food is good. I started with a lobster bisque ($14) that served as a great start to my meal. I went with a 14 oz. NY strip ($52) that came with a few thin green beans. I ordered a baked potato, which was huge. My wife isn't a big steak fan, so she looked at a few of the other options, which included salmon, short ribs and mushroom ravioli, but landed on a salad (which was a decent size for $9), mushroom tart ($12) and shrimp cocktail ($17.50 for 5 shrimp). The restaurant offers full bar service, of course. I enjoyed a draft porter (although, again, a bit pricey at $8 for less than half a pint), while my wife had a cosmo ($10). Well, she actually had two before our evening ended. We save Brandywine Prime for special occasions. I just find it hard to justify spending so much on a meal when it's not that out of the ordinary. But if you don't flinch at high prices, you won't complain about the food or service.More

I was able to get a last minute reservation on a Saturday night. The steak I ordered was first class and the service great.

If you're from out of town and craving red meat, BP has a good Chester County feel (upstairs rooms have Wyeth prints). Menu includes a wider selection of sides and salads than other steakhouses we've visited. Recommend reservations

My wife and I dined here with some friends. I liked the wood floors and the overall atmosphere inside the restaurant. The bar area is cute. We wanted to arrive early and enjoy Happy Hour, but I caused a delay, and we arrived after 6:30...pm. There was a good variety of steaks on the menu, as well as several steak specials. My wife and I shared a Prime Delmonico Rib-Eye with a side of asparagus. I had the special arugula salad with figs, which was very tasty. The green beans served with the steak were perfect, crunchy and not overcooked. The butter-cooked asparagus was tasty. Overall the steak was OK. It was good, but not great. We're still looking for a steak restaurant to compare with one we enjoyed when we lived in the Denver, Colorado, area. I was impressed with all the choices on the dessert menu. With the exception of some local creamery ice cream, the desserts were made in-house. The Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding was flavorful and worth the visit to Brandywine Prime. I liked the $7 corkage fee--not the expensive. I brought along a nice 2011 bottle of Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy with the meal. I had a glass of Rosé with my salad. The service was good. I don't recall the server's name. On the bill, he's listed as server CW. He was helpful with suggestions about the menu choices.More

Four of us had a really nice evening. I got the prime filet, my husband had the prime wagu special. The best either of us had ever had. Extremely tender and flavorful. Our friends had the salad which was a special for the night. It...had figs and was large and looks really good. Two of us also tried the lobster bisque. It was good, but could’ve been a little thicker and creamier. The waiter was very attentive and very well informed about the menu. The interior of the restaurant was very nice also and easy to find restrooms. Only negative: parking. Yes, they have a parking lot out back, but we had to park across the street.More
