We enjoyed the food immensely: the kitchen is in good hands with their current chef. The service was slow, amateurish, and sloppy. The dining room is in need of a good maitre'd to teach the bumbling servers how to be waiters. This restaurant has great potential, but the owners need to wake up and improve the service.

We visited Greenbriar for a family Sunday brunch after Thanksgiving. Our daughter had recommended the location and we were not disappointed. The variety of food was very good and well prepared. Even though very busy, all staff members were friendly and attentive. Overall, we had a very enjoyable experience in a warm, festive environment. We will definitely return!

Celebrated a couples birthday at the Greenbriar. Although we were looking forward to the mussels (not on current menu), we were able to enjoy our beef Wellington and my strip steaks. Banana fosters was superb as was the crewmen brûlée. Perfect Christmas atmosphere complemented the experience.

It was Thanksgiving day, and outside the large windows the snow glistened and a small rabbit wondered what we were doing. We were enjoying a great traditional thanksgiving meal that almost felt like we were at a family home meal, including seconds. Prices are not cheap, but also not completely out of the realm of affordability.

The owner met us at the front door and gave us special attention right away. It was great to have that special positive energy right up front. He sat us away from a large loud group and placed us near the windows just as the snow began to fall, Couldn't be beat. The bite of boulder made the event affordable.... More

We've visited The Greenbriar twice with friends within the last month, both birthday celebrations. The Greenbriar offers their brunch with or without the Champagne. We happily enjoyed our server's attention & the champagne was a nice touch. The service was impeccable both times. The wide array of food choices works for vegetarians & non both. The setting is quite lovely... More

Visited for a business group dinner comprising 30 colleagues. Initial drinks service was fast and efficient but the food seemed to take ages. My starter of prince Edward Island mussels was poor as they were very overcooked and the main of scallops and shrimp was poor for the $34 or so price tag. This place sells itself as fine dining...

The place is nice. Cool interior. Enough said about that. What you need to know it's how freaking amazing the food is here. I'm sure it costs a fortune, but it was the best wedding food I've ever had.

The food and service at this place is flat out awesome! We are very hard to impress but loved the shrimp and scallops with sweet corn fettuccine and jalapeños, sounds usual But it's an amazing combo of favors, heat and textures. The table side Caesar is how a Caesar should be made (creamy Caesar dressing is an abomination that should... More
