We have never had anything here that wasn't excellent. We had the mango pineapple wings and they were amazing. My fiancé and I shared the crabcake sandwich and the fish sandwich and both were perfect. A "must visit" when in the area.

The quality of food is inconsistent. I've eaten here a few times and on one occasion, the crab cakes were fantastic. The next time I was there, the same crab cakes were not very good. Same with their barbecue. It might be tender & juicy, or dry and tough ...

nice, quaint restaurant. Service was pretty fast, and the food was pretty good. I had the pork bbq plate. The pork was tender and had a good flavor. Our only complaint was the waitress kept trying to hurry us out. They did not close till 9. We arrived around 7. The first trip to the table, less than 5 mins... More

Good food and good service! We got the BBQ and it was delicious! We also got several sides and they were tasty. Definitely recommend this place! I wish we would have stayed at the inn here rather than the pipestem spa and cabins. We had the worst experience there!

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

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
