The night we visited Brandon's was very busy; a full house of diners. The staff was friendly and the food good. My ribs were moist and fall off the bone tender. The fried mushrooms appetizer were good too. The BBQ sauce was sweet, which I like. Looking forward to coming back.

Ok bbq food, sides were inconsistent. Ribs good, wings were breaded. Great place to bring kids and prices reasonable. Good alternative to the lodge restaurants.

We ate in an open air extension and were part of a party of 10. First I'll say our server was good. I had a rib sampler thinking if it's a rib place it should be good...nope! I would even say inedible. Very dry and the sauce was not good. The fried oysters and fried green tomatoes were good. Slaw... More

My wife had backed potato and slaw and she loved it. Our friends had BBQ Ribs and BBQ chicken. The food was very tender, very tasty, portions large. Service was great. I... More

Not many choices for eating out so last night we found Brandon's. Long story short, yes it is a BBQ place and surprisingly the ribs, though small were good. But not fall off the bone good. Ribs were undercooked a bit. The BBQ beans were simple good old Pork n Beans. The baked potato was cooked just right but we... More

The sangria was the best I've had in my life! The pulled pork had some fat, and the blackberry cobbler was good. Service was great!

We had a party of 10 and they seated us outside on the covered porch. It was fantastic! Our group consisted of 6 kids and 4 adults and everyone was pleased with what they ordered. Their food was great, service was great, portions were huge, and best of all....the prices weren't too shabby either. Will definitely be back now that... More

We noticed the large colorful sign on Highway 20 South and then decided to turn off the highway and check it out for a late lunch. The restaurant is in a rustic cabin and decorated with some nostalgia. The place was crowded with locals dining with family and friends. We sat in a comfortable booth and were greeted by a... More

Stopped in to eat while staying at the Pipestem State park. I called in the order and it was ready when I got there. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Ordered the combo platter, the food was good, the only problem I had was the baked potato. For $1.00 more it was supposed to be loaded, the potato was small and... More

It's all about the food. Period. End of story. The ambiance is negligible and the prices are average for the area. Portions are acceptable but not huge. Food was outstanding and the wooded views are a bit unusual but nothing really outstanding. We have enjoyed our dinner at Brandon's on a few occasions without disappointment. I'd recommend it !
