Steakhouse
Located in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, this modern American steakhouse is a short drive from Philadelphia, the Main Line or Wilmington. The complete redo of the 300 year old Chadds Ford Inn has created an excellent canvas with which to paint. The cuisine is strictly twenty-first century with an emphasis not only top quality cuts of beef, like the 16 ounce Prime Delmonico, but fresh seasonal seafood, like jumbo lump crab and wild salmon. The comfortable bar beckons you in with a Best of Philly burger and a local draft beer. Creative sandwiches, great happy hour specials and great steaks ensure we have something for everyone. Modern finishes to a historic building create an inviting, hip atmosphere that welcomes all-from tourists to business travelers to local families to private events in one of our many rooms.

Great location and building and wonderful attentive service. It’s just so overpriced for what you get. It’s the typical high end steakhouse menu where the steak is $42-$60 and you have to spend $6 on a potato and maybe more for other sides. The oysters were small, not quite as fresh as they could be (but not bad for sure), and not shucked all that well. If you really want steak then fine. But I feel like $50 for an entree at a high end gourmet restaurant would yield more. You’d have a chef making creative dishes with a variety of great ingredients, not just searing a steak and baking a potato. Enjoyed the meal but the check was a nose bleed.

We went there for my wife's birthday. Everything was awesome. We dine there several times a year and the raw bar sampler is always must. Steaks were cooked to perfection and service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

A gem of casual fine dining with excellent quality food, great service, and a wonderful ambience. One special note: this area is somewhat remote, so don’t try to use Uber or Lyft. We were lucky enough to get there but had no way to get home. Luckily a wonderful young man from the kitchen was getting off soon after we finished and volunteered to drive us home. Cannot recommend this place and its people enough.

Old, rustic atmosphere - quite different from upscale steakhouse ambiance. Good bartender - Alex. Appetizers were very good - gulf shrimp spring rolls + fried mozzarella. Bread was disappointing - this should be a strength of most steakhouses. The steaks were very good, and the french fries were outstanding. Was nice that the corkage fee for bringing a bottle of wine was only $8. Probably a notch below going to Philly for Del Frisco's or Capital Grille, but I would say this is as good as Sullivan's in Wilmington.

It started with a hostess who acted like she couldn't be bothered (who coincidently didn't say have a good night or acknowledge us on the way out as we walked right past her). The waiter was surly and unhelpful. The appetizers were great but the steak seemed more like a "choice" cut of meat than a "prime". It was under seasoned and average. At these prices, it should have been memorable-- it wasn't. To top it all off-- we were pretty sure that the cheesecake was Sara Lee right from the freezer. We would never go back and spend hundreds of dollars for an experience like this again. It's a shame--- but it's the truth.

We had a wonderful dinner from the special dinner menu. The portions were generous, normal size portions, not the small portions some restaurants serve when offering a special menu. And the dishes did not disappoint, the salad, soup, and entrees were all worth a spot on the regular menu, wonderful, and the dessert was a real treat. Will definitely take particular notice when dinner specials arrive in our in box the next time.

I usually have beef when I eat at Brandywine Prime, but this time I had the seafood special and it was great.

I really like the range of options available at different prices, and I always feel like I get my money's worth.

it is an old building, people walking on the hardwood floors were very noisey. The patio door kept slamming. We sat near the steps going up to the second level, extremely noisey. Food was great, noise level was too extreme.

Social distancing was excellent. The room we dined in had booths along one on side of the room. Always leaving an empty in between. And tables for 2 on the opposite side of the room. Honestly, the most space around groups that I have seen in any restaurant recently.

Our reservation was for 7pm on a Saturday evening. Our table was ready upon arrival. The food, service, and cocktails were all perfect! We will be back again soon.

We chose Brandywine Prime for my wife’s birthday celebration. COVID restrictions didn’t allow us to dine in Philly at Alpen Rose, Butcher & Singer or Barclay Prime due to the size of our party, so we gave Brandywine a shot. I have to say overall we were underwhelmed and disappointed with the food and service. No mention from our distracted server of the celebration although I mentioned it when I made the reservation and steaks came out over cooked. Not to mention the tight, disorganized parking lot. Unfortunately overall a poor attempt at a high end steak house.
