Brandywine Prime
Brandywine Prime
OUR RATING: 3 STARS

Regulars to this Delaware County steakhouse (one of whom happens to be elusive artist Andrew Wyeth, who lives nearby) know that it prides itself not on massive meat, but on almost reasonably sized portions, like the 10-ounce rib eye, packed with flavor and served simply, without attitude. The same can’t be said of the starters and sides — such as the grainy where’s-the-lobster potato puree — which pale by comparison. But you’ll forgive when dessert rolls around, especially if you get the — mmm — chocolate waffles.

Niche: A friendly neighborhood restaurant with a carnivorous bent.

Signature steak: 10-ounce barrel-cut rib eye.

The tab: Steaks $28 (12-ounce strip) to $35 (eight-ounce Hereford filet); sides average $5.25.

Wine list: A concise and fairly priced selection, with much to choose from under $50.
