Unexpected space along the river in what you'd assume is a typical small town bar. The atmosphere is a touch swanky and our service was fast and friendly. None of us loved our breakfast...except for the complimentary cinnamon rolls that were brought to the table. Those that could eat them, loved them. Keep a few loaves of gluten free bread... More

We stumbled upon Brandy's today when we were in town and decided to try their brunch. The place was small and really busy, but the waiters and bartender were attentive and friendly. The portion sizes were huge and the food was delicious! The Bloody Mary's were also really good, and the string cheese on top was a cool addition. Although... More

I have eaten here many times and i've never had a bad meal. My favorite is the Blue Crab Claws and the Bone-In Filet. No matter what you get you will not go home hungry. Huge portions, especially the pasta dishes. The martinis are fantastic and such a big selection. I recommend the Lemon Basil Martini, not too sweet but... More

Brandy's is a great place for Sunday brunch with friends and/or family. The space is small, but comfortable. Reservations are needed due to limited space. We love the biscuits and gravy and french toast! They always have really interesting features and great brunch cocktails too. If you are near Peru, give this place a try. We drive an hour every...

Met up with some classmates before a get together and decided to stop at Brandy's for some drinks and appetizers beforehand. The martinis were excellent and the appetizers delicious. The oysters are served both raw and baked and are out of this world. The spinach and artichoke dip is excellen. The portions are generous. We definitely will be back for... More

Brandy's has a delicious brunch menu every Sunday, I believe from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. They have the best dinner menu in this area. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night, you'll need a reservation. It has a very small, quaint atmosphere. The food is to die for & the martinis are exquisite. It's a little pricey,... More
