The restaurant was too loud. Hard to have a conversation at our table for 4.
Thank you for a wonderful evening. The food was amazing as always. Liz was a wonderful and made our evening a delight. Thank you Todd for always having such great food.
First time dining at Branchwater to celebrate a 60th birthday, Fantastic menu, excellent service and a great place to be pampered. When the server found out we were celebrating a 60th birthday, and that I was moving into the neighborhood next week, she gave us a free appetizer (their signature brussel sprouts) and a beautiful orange creme brulee birthday dessert. Will certainly be back!
Food was delicious and bartender and waiters were fabulous!
As I told Emily (our Server), this is only the 2nd time we have been to Branchwater. On both visits, the experience was exceptional (which is why we came back)! First of all, Emily is an EXCEPTIONAL server, (pleasant, caring, good sense of humor), and she was part of the reason we returned less than two weeks after we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary in early July. Due to this great experience, we decided to return with our daughter and her family, to celebrate their 20th Anniversary. The food, ambiance and service was EXCELLENT on both occasions, and we look forward to returning in the future (even if we don't have a special occasion to celebrate).
Your covered outside facility provided good protection from rain, yet made us feel very comfortable to eat at a restaurant during these difficult Covid times.
When I made the return reservation on Open Table, I had put in a request for Emily, and luckily she was again available on our second visit. Hopefully she will have an opportunity to see this review. She definitely deserves the praise.
Was there on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was almost empty when arriving at 5:30. I requested to sit in the bar area however I was told those tables were reserved. Reserved for our regulars. Are you kidding? One sure way of not adding to the list of regulars is to tell patrons you can't sit there unless you come more often. Not a practice I would implement if I owned the place but what do I know, I'm not a regular.
Food was average .. needed seasoning. Charcuterie board seemed thrown together, had no veggies or creativity honestly. I would go again just to give it a second try. Times are tough so maybe it was a fluke.
This place is always good. The menu is getting a bit stale in part because of the Corona crap, but the food is always good.
Great service and food was really tasty. Had a great time.
One of the best date nights for us. The food was phenomenal and Landon was providing exceptional service. Definitely on our favorite list and we will be back.
A good dining experience, food was delicious, service was great. Felt very welcome.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed her birthday dinner here. Julie was an exceptional server with a vast knowledge of the menu options and chef specialties. She also was very informative about the dessert selections. We would highly recommend getting the brussel sprouts as an appetizer. They were amazing. We will definitely return to try out more options and will request to sit in Julie section
From the moment we walked in the door we were treated to such warm and welcoming hospitality. The food was delicious it was truly a perfect evening.
Wonderful food! Had my first deep fried lobster and it was fantastic. Outside seating was very nice, highly recommend. Drinks were a little stiff but loved the appetizers. Great beef brisket skewers! Would love to go back when we're in the area.
Great food, sat outside which was not crowded and very pleasant.
The meal and the service were excellent. The brussels sprouts is probably the best I have had. We sat out on the patio on a Saturday evening and enjoyed the live music from the Vickery common area. A wonderful evening all around.
We look forward to dining at Branchwater as often as we can. Great food and ambiance; even greater staff.
Best dining experience in the area as far as we are concerned. Kudos to the Branchwater team!
As always food was spectacular! Band playing on the lawn nice too!
Great time...ambience, drinks, food, and service was top notch!
We drove an hour to get to this place and it was worth it!
Can't believe we didn't go all the time when we lived in Johns Creek!
We had lobster tails and sea bass (seafood special that night!).
We will definitely be back!
This was our first time eat there and we were very happy with the experience.
Sat on the patio. Great atmosphere; able to view the corn hole competition on the green which was fun. Food was served hot and was very delicious. Service was a bit slower than normal but we attributed that to Covid. Didn’t bother us because we wanted to take our time and enjoy the outdoor dining, Love Branchwater and will return soon. Always a good experience.
We had a nice dinner. One thing they could improve on is a plant based entre option. Just because a person orders a meal without meat doesn’t mean they want to leave the restaurant wanting or they want a side portion. We ordered a pasta dish without the animal based protein and it came out as a little side dish. I hope they can accommodate people and cater to dietary preferences without assuming a calorie restriction. We enjoy this restaurant but don’t want to come home hungry after eating out.
We have lived in west forsyth for 5 years and wish I had tried this place sooner. We sat outside, with safe social distancing with staff with masks, the jalapeño margarita was amazing. The goat cheese appetizer was amazing also, along with the wedge salad. I had a Filet and lobster tail, PERFECT. My wife had the Ribeye, It was just as good this morning for breakfast as it was a day and a half ago when we eat at the restaurant. Every person that worked there was friendly, helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back SOON!
A quiet night out with the family on a Saturday! Amazing how things have changed. Began with the Crab dip which was excellent but entrees were then served before we had finished. Both steaks, the ribeye and the tenderloin, were good, as was the sea bass. Service left a little to be desired - somewhat slow, had to ask for second bottle of wine, no steak knives - but did not detract too much as we were not in a hurry. Limited selection of wines on offer. Social distancing of tables in evidence. Branchwater is not a cheap night out but we have nothing locally to compare.
Great spot! Thank you!!
Julie is by far the best waitress and we love the experience she creates for us when we are there.
Our first time dining at Branchwater. We will be back!
We dine at Branchwater at least once a week, and sometimes more. We love the food and the staff, and have never left there disappointed. It is our go to place anytime we have guests, as we know it is consistently wonderful. Love this restaurant!
We got together with two other couples for dinner on the patio. As is customary at Branchwater the food was fantastic. The staff took all of the necessary precautions to make us all feel safe during these unprecedented times. It was great to be out.
Good but it was noisy. The account UCD are BSD but it’s a nice resturant. Sound echos worse than any I’ve been to—. There was one table if 5 seated 3 booths behind n it was way noisy.
One other time we went n it was horrendous as well. But we like the servers n the menu— it just had poor planning by the builder. It would be great to try to muffle with some dilution.
Food and Service was good. We were seated at a table near the bar area. A group of people came in near the end of our dinner. It apppeared that they had probably been playing golf, were slighlty intoxicated, AND EXTREMELY AND OBNOXIOUSLY LOUD. Since we were near the end of our dinner (15 year anniversary), it did not bother me. Had it been at the beggining or in the middle of our dinner, it would have been a big problem. Next time we come, I'll try and avoid sitting at a table that's so close to the bar.
Always good. Never disappointed.
Mother’s Day. Worst meal and service ever.
Support the staff
Food and service were great. The artichokes were amazing!
The food was amazing. We had steak and lobster. We sis have to send our steak back for additional cooking but it came back perfect. The appetizer mushrooms were delicious. The service was great. Jackie was our waitress. She was very attentive.
Fried oysters great. Ribeye & lobster perfect done & tasty. Great place.
Branchwater is our go to place for special occasions and relaxing atmosphere. Food is as expected. I only have one little downfall and that is I have not been impressed with the small steaks. I think they are lacking flavor and are not super tender. I order medium with a little pink in the center, so it just could be that I need to order just medium. Other than that incredible place. Always use open table for reservations however, we almost did not get in just walking off the street, even though they were not busy.
This was our first time at Branchwater. We were there to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. Our server was wonderful, the service was on point and our food was delicious from appetizer to dessert (which they personalized for our occasion). We will definitely be back!!
