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 10 oz. barrel cut ribeye, but fresh seasonal seafood, like soft-shell crabs and wild salmon. The comfortable bar beckons you in with a Best of Philly burger, ahi tuna club and a local draft beer. Creative sandwiches, great happy hour specials and great steaks ensure we have something for everyone. Modern finishes to an 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.

We drive up to Chadds Ford two to three times a year to visit the area. This restaurant is always on our list of must stop places. The food is phenomenal and the service is stellar. If you’re looking for a wonderful place to have a nice dinner in the area then look no further. Pennsylvania is still under very strict guidelines due to COVID-19 so expect to wear a mask when being walked to your table and expect your table and waitstaff to wear masks. This is all for your protection and theirs. The restaurant also has implemented safety measures in their dining rooms so that no table is within six feet of another. This in no way diminishes the atmosphere of this great place.

SO GREAT to be back in a Real restaurant, with drinks I don’t make, eating food I can’t make, on dishes I don’t have to wash! And tasty food, friendly service, fun experience. Plenty of room. Come back out into the (masked, social distanced) world!

We could not have been happier with our dinner. It was our first time dining out since Covid hit.
Our waiter was great, food amazing (as usual), and we were very comfortable with the precautions in place. The only reason I put moderate for noise was because we were on the front porch. Traffic was a little loud at times but it was also nice because it would sometimes drown out the conversations near by—but I could hear the person across from me.
Save room for dessert!

BP is one of my favorite restaurants in the area, if not #1. If its my choice on where the family goes out to eat for a special occasion, BP is it. The food is always perfect and the staff is over accommodating, but not is an over bearing type of way.

The food was great like normal, but the waiter was rushing us for some reason. We had reservations, but he kept focusing on wanting to take our entire order at once so it wouldn’t be held up according to him. I actually think he just wanted to make sure he wasn’t staying too late. If the reservation was too late, then the restaurant shouldn’t have allowed it. First time that has ever happened at any restaurant I have eaten at. We did order all the food separate and it all came out within reasonable times, so what he was saying made no sense. Will not be my 1st choice to visit going forward because of that.

Dropped in for a quick steak. Ordered the barrel cut Ribeye but Nope. We are out. Then ordered the NY. Asked for it Medium rare Pittsburgh as the waiter put it. The girlfriend ordered the Porkchop. The steak came with green beans as per the menu. So we ordered asparagus to share as I told the waiter. Here is what I got. Four green beans with the $40 steak. The Asparagus on my plate: fun sharing across the table. BTW...Asparagus lukewarm and the steak by no means was neither hot or "Pittsburgh". Total bust on my end. Oh to top it off...not a tender steak by any means. Really...$40 steak you couldn't drop it hot? Girlfriends Chop was hot and seasoned well...but she said it was dry. I know...chops are hard and always a risk. One thing that was great was the Tuffle French fries. To add I never write these things but after this night... Add two drinks and $140+...the cat ate well.

Thanks for a perfect night out , Brandywine Prime! We enjoyed your service: our waiter was attentive, friendly and a professional at listening to what we wanted and making that happen. We enjoyed the atmosphere: cozy, clean, upscale and pleasantly busy. And we enjoyed the food: fall-off-your-fork tender short ribs, just-jumped-out-of-the-garden spinach and greens, and the shrimp were pretty much baby lobsters they were so large ! Bread was a warm -edible gluten-y pillow we could sink into the lobster bisque which was also an excellent meal in itself. Thank you for keeping your restaurant fresh, sustainably sourced, and offering a consistent steakhouse option to those of us who live in the area. Restaurant business is tough so I thank you for trying to stay at the top of your pack.

I was really disappointed. For the price you pay for a steak, you'd think it would be seasoned. It was bland and comes with about 5 green beans. The waiter was good and the ambiance is OK. The food just sucked.

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.

Overall good experience , food was great , service was excellent . Only complaint , they squeezed my wife and I into a small table in the corner that was a little crowded with the large group next to us that was loud also. There were other open tables , not totally full.
