We have been coming to Brandl since it opened and it’s one of our favorites!! Food and service have always been excellent, we love the rotating menu and it’s a BYOB, which is even better! The Lazy Lobster is incredible.

I went with my two adult children. Upon reading the menu my son said he can not decide; he wanted all the appetizers and about half of the entrees. Everything was wonderful. The service a bit slow, but we were not in a hurry.

We visited recently for a family/friends private party at lunch time. Very accommodating & patient with our group which included at least 30 children. Clean space, more than enough room for our large numbers. Food was good but portions were on the small side. An...More
