Marvelous Sunday brunch. I went with my wife and another couple- we were well served and taken care of by the staff. The food selection ranged from classic American breakfast favorites like specially prepared omelets or bacon strips to the more exotic mussels and oysters. Salad, fruit, and a good cheese selection with wafers greeted us. Their take on french... More

- Service was a bit slow, though it was Thanksgiving and the restaurant was packed. Two years in a row now our waiters seemed like they were disengaged and a bit judgmental of us since we were about half their age. Not as helpful and interactive as we would have liked. - Plate presentation seemed rushed & messy for the... More

We always look for buffet brunch in Boulder and Longmont area. One of our native Boulder residents recommended this place for brunch. We made a reservation from their website. It is pretty easy. The staff are very nice, friendly, and polite. They have variety of food on their buffet. I love to have pancake and omelette after 1 pm.

We have always enjoyed dining in the garden in the evening at the Greenbriar. This summer almost ended without our traditional visit/visits. As it turned out the evening was perfect in every way. The weather was warm with just a hint of coolness. We had excellent service. The wine which is 2 dollars less during happy hour ...a wonderful Sauvignon... More

We went there for our anniversary. The building is old but very well taken care of. The wood gleams and shines, the grounds are lovely. The wait staff was friendly, they all wished us a happy anniversary. The wine list was a book, it was so extensive! The prices ranged from the $30 on up. The food was beautifully presented... More

Our family group had a wonderful experience here during summer restaurant week and had great food, excellent service and wonderful old country club atmosphere. The drive to this place north of Boulder is so beautiful. The wedge salad was extra good this time and the steak nicely prepared. Loved the gluten free flourless chocolate cake for dessert. My other group... More

When we went to dinner here recently the restaurant was almost empty... this should have been a clue. It was the food that was the most disappointing. The "amuse-bouche" to start the meal was a raspberry sorbet with basil - the basil was so strong that I couldn't eat it. Next was a salad with raspberry dressing and " goat... More

I used to go to the Greenbriar in the 1980s when I lived in Colorado, I went this August and joined my brother and sister-in-law for a great evening in the newly (well for me) refurbished bar. The restaurant has undergone quite a bit of work, owing to the Boulder Fire and then a Flood (not to mention the Audi!).... More
