Will not go back here. Absolute worst service and waitress. Went here with 5 co-workers and we all hated it, will not be back and told the entire office to avoid it. Food is decent but not worth the hassle.Thanks for nothing

I've been to Brenanan's a few times, and was never really impressed with the food. The wings are good in size, but in flavor they are truly lacking. If you can eat the hot wings here, then be warned to order the mild anywhere else you

I picked up the 2009 Best of Buffalo resturant reviews and found it ASTONISHING to find this in there! This is one brewery I will never visit again. I grew up on Irish food, love it...and they do it a great injustice.

We sat on the patio, the "furnature" left a lot to be desired. The ambiance was horrible. The food was cold, which really should have been helped considering they were dead that night....also it took FOREVER between courses! Dessert took over 30 minutes.

The "buffalo burger" I believe it was was bland and whole combination of igredients was poor. The dish I had was also bad. I would never go back there.

To make a long story short a buddy and I were drinking for a while and as we walked outside to leave we both realized we should call a friend or cab. The bouncers would not let us in to make a call or call a cab for us how ridicolous is that.

This place has the potential to have a great atmosphere...instead it is just a good atmosphere. It is very dark inside, hiding some of the warn out motif from 1990! Also, the food is bland and taste like they opened it from a Sysco Can! Overall this place is average. Best bet if you want to eat, or see what your doing, is to go to Tully's across the street.

Pros: WIde selection of beer

Great atmosphere to hang out or have a meal. Their reuben sandwich is something to try - coupled with a Guiness and life is good. Prices are reasonable, parking is pretty good. Service is 90% reliable, and they are pretty busy most of the time but they can get you in and out on your lunch hour pretty well.

Nice variety of flavors, even grilled - which were quite excellent. I would have to give Brennan's the nod over Duff's & Anchor for overall flavors & quality. The brew selection sealed the deal.

Brennan's is a great place . They have an awesome outdoor patio to take full advantage of the short summers here in Buffalo. I've never been disappointed with a meal. Because it's always busy, you can expect a little slower service but the staff is always friendly. After dinner, the bar is a BLAST! The crowd is a very eclectic mix of young and young at heart. The all wood bar is a comfortable place to cop a squat with a brewsky and listen to the great bands they venue. When the bartenders aren't busting thier butts to keep up with demand, they are very outgoing and chatty. Looking for someplace casual to have a great meal, a few drinks, and just hang out? You've found it at Brennan's.

Pros: Comfy, cozy down- home place to pig out and chill out

Cons: Can get very busy, so be patient with the service

If you want a place to kick back a few beers, fill up on some good food, chat with friends, and have a good time then look no further. Relax and enjoy!!

I do like Brennan's but it should not be listed as the cheapest - I would have to say average prices as most restaurants. I used to think that they had large portions but the last time I visited (3 days ago) my normal order is the salmon cesar salad and the piece of salmon they gave this time around was 1/2 the size it normally is. Also their side of fries are a bit pricey but good and that portion size went down too but the price didn't. That was very disappointing.

The service here has always been slow, they draw a huge local crowd - as it is a favorite bar and restaurant hang out - so if you plan on visiting plan on staying you will be here a bit so relax with appetizers and a drink perhaps. I wish they would hire more staff to handle the crowds so when you have children they do not have to wait too long to eat.

The day we went they also had a magician for the kids that was very cool!

Pros: Kid friendly, average prices, kids eat free one night a week

Cons: smaller portions than they usually have

I was born and raised in Buffalo. In those 18 years, I can't say there is another restaurant that comes to mind as a favorite other than Brennan's. Perhaps you have to be from Buffalo to get it, but this is a great place. The wings are authentic, so if you're looking for something that is breaded and too hot to taste, then you're out of luck. Buffalo wings are fried and tossed in Frank's. And the service is always friendly, but if it's packed (which it usually is) you may have to wait. The bar crowd is always fun and always ready to cheer on our Bills or Sabres to victory or (more often times than not) defeat. If you want a taste of Buffalo and some amazing food, Brennan's is the place to go.

We came for wings as recommended by a native buffalonian. The suicide wings and the mild wings were identical-very mild, and very dry. The celery and carrots were old, some were rotten. One of us had a portabello wrap. It had next to no portabellos-it was a basic rice wrap and very poor. The service was horrible, we had to ask the waitress to take our order. I would not go there again and strongly recommend against it.

I haven't been there since the expansion, but before it was a great place to hang out and have a beer. I can only imagine how much nicer it is now. The wings were great and everything was delicious.

Great meals. They have a huge menu, of which I've never had the same thing twice and the food never fails to satisfy completely. That's hard to do because I'm the worst person to be in a restaurant with if I don't like the food. I've recommended it to everyone. Big corner bar type atmosphere, great service the only crowded spot is the bar, it's the only place you can smoke inside. Prices are damn good for both the quality and size of portions. Tell them to bring back the crabcakes, best I've had outside of Maryland or Virginia. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED !
