There were 6 of us. For the amount of money that they are charging for the meals, we could have gone to a fast food place and had better food. 3 of us ordered steak sandwiches. Each sandwich is around $17. When they brought the sandwiches, we were expected a decent steak sandwich. What they brought to us was a piece of steak that was so small that we had more bread then steak. When we talked with the manager and showed him what we got, he agreed that that was a very disappointing steak. Instead of him getting us 3 new steak sandwiches that had a nice piece of steak on it, he brought us 3 steaks on a plate that was as small as what we got on our original sandwich. At that point the steaks that we originally got were cold by the time he brought out the other steaks. They also forgot to bring out soups and salads that we ordered. The fries that came with the sandwiches were cold and we had to send those back. Instead of making our meals right, we received a bill for $150. It may not matter to them but they lost 6 customers that night and I would not recommend anyone eating at this restaurant. There are much better places to go with reasonable prices. When I go out for dinner, I expect that I should have a pleasant experience and not have to deal with cold food and skimpy portions especially when we are paying a premium price for it.

Choose the bar area for lunch as it was not as noisy - due to families and little kids. The bartender was our server. Nice young lady. Too bad she couldn’t make us blackberry Mojitos as they were out of mint or blackberries. Had a beer instead. Sandwiches were good. My burger was amazing. Topped with fri d pickles. Yum. Lots of fries, too. We will be back.

Food is always excellent and service is usually the same. Biggest problem is that they don’t honor reservations very well and rarely honor requests for table in the back, booth, or hold tables for reservations even if you get there early or on time.

The burgers were great and the sweet potato fries are amazing with the maple dipping sauce. The only problem we had was the noise level and they gave one of our guests thousand island instead of the maple sauce. When we pointed it out - they brought the maple sauce but by then the fries were gone. We ordered a side for them to take home. Would have been nice if they had brought a few sweet potato fries out with the sauce but not a huge deal.

Opentable allowed me to make a reservation on a day that the restaurant was not open for service. Double check if the resturant is open prior to making the drive. Therefore, I could not make an accurate review.

I made a reservation for dinner on Easter Sunday. As they had times available on Opentable, I assumed they were open. We arrived and they were not open. I was not able to cancel the reservation on the Opentable app due to a technical problem with the app.

North Branch advertises itself as a Burger & Pizza restaurant but it is much more...The Best Ribs in the area, as well as the Grilled Salmon! The milkshakes are Huge! The waitstaff is attentive and don't rush.
