We ordered hamburgers thinking that since this is a well know Steakhouse that we would receive a quality meal. That was not the case. There were 5 of us and all of the burgers were over cooked. We will try the restaurant one more time, but if our meal is not up to par, we won't go back.

I heard about Brann' s on the radio many times on sports talk radio out of Grand rapids. They finally put one in the Bay City area . I went there on a Thursday and it was all you can eat ribs for $8.99 . My first thought before I went there was " it cant be very good for 8.99". I WAS SOOOO IMPRESSED. Pork ribs all you can eat, 2 sides what a deal and very , very ,good.
Service was sooo good as well. The waitress smiled the whole time and was soo good.
If you like ribs and don't like paying an arm and a leg TRY THIS PLACE!!!
Lots of Craft beers to choose form as well . They have CLUB KENO as well

“8 oz sirloin filet at lunch”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

You will not find a better lunch special than the filet, aged and marinated for perfect tenderness, soup your choice, salad your choice, and honey butter rolls... wonderful price, flavor and filling.

“Poor quality control”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

We've tried Brann's three times and it's three and out. We won't be back. The food should be good, but we haven't found it to be. The baked potatoes have been overcooked and the rolls, which are great when fresh, have been hard and tough two of the three visits. The steaks are a poor quality sirloin with considerable gristle. I don't care for their seasoning and even when the steak is ordered without seasoning the meat is not well flavored. The BBQ ribs are decent, meaty and tender. With better attention to quality I'd give three or four stars, but you just can't count on getting a well-prepared meal.

“Excellent, as always.”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I have dined there multiple times now and have always been extremely pleased with every aspect! The server was very knowledgeable about the 14 taps they have and what was most popular, Short's Huma-Lupalicious was really good as was the Atwater Java Porter. I bought one of their Mug Club mugs and I know I'll be using it often to take advantage of the discount you get! I have had their reuben several times now and it's always been delicious. The corned beef is so fresh and the seasoned fries have always been hot and very tasty. About a week ago I tried the boursin sizzler - cooked perfectly, great flavor of both the steak and the boursin cheese on top. The yeast rolls with cinnamon butter are like dessert they are so good! :) Very reasonably priced, my family and I look forward to going again!
