“Great menu and great service”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

There have been many owners/operators of this restaurant over the past 10 years. The current operator has created a great menu of steaks and seafood. The sauces are unique and we have liked them all - garlic is an ingredient in all so if you don't want tell them upfront. The wait staff is friendly and efficient and Chef Lance loves to talk about his menu items. After we tried it out the first time we ended up going back two more times in the next several months. The restaurant is open seasonally from May through October I believe.

“Hoped for more.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I had put off going here for a couple of years and decided we would try their new early bird dining special. While small, the atmosphere was very nice with linen table cloths, well appointed bar and small piano played at a nice volume level. Once seated we had a waitress switch when she found out we were only there for the special but as it turned out we probably got the best one in the deal. On the the special menu. I was not impressed with the options at the price offered but that could just be me. I had an appetizer (shrimp with a spicy sauce) and rueben while the others had the marsala and a salmon sandwich. There weren't any rave reviews by anyone and those who had the marsala thought it had more of a soy taste than marsala. While priced at the high end the standard menu may be better option but not sure I'll risk it for the price.

“Won't go back”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had a group of friends go to Brandy's last week-very very expensive for what u get.
A hamburg with fries and a cup of soup-no drinks was $21.00.
Friends of ours were overcharged on their bill-so if u pay by credit card make sure u check it closely. Nothing inexpensive on the menu.
Also was informed when we ordered a hamburg-they only had 2 left.
The only thing good was the bread and the service

“Beyond US average, great!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I found this nice restaurant in passing Sand Road searching for a steak house with 9 peoples to dine. It is a club house of a golf course and not few cars parked at that time. Yes, I'm lucky!

This is American cuisine similar to french style, steak, pasta and sea food.
Until that time, we are talking about American rough dishes. Our dishes are beyond average. So, we went here 3 night for 6 nights stay. You may call us foolish but we don't mind it.

Good and comfort service. There were many couples of matured. Nice window view. You can make special memories at the Brandy's.
