We remember Hannah, our professional server, like an ambassador for Briarhurst Manor. She was fleet-footed as she covered many tables, but always with a calm elegance, and with interesting stories to tell about the people who once lived in this massive old house. The food was first rate, with that night's amuse-bouche starter (crab claw in a lemon cajun broth... More

We had dinner for my husband's birthday there last night. This is the second year in a row. As before, it was an entire experience, not just dinner. This time, we took our kids. Allison's greeting was friendly, and she made us feel special by remembering us from last year. The staff made my daughter feel special, as we were... More

The service was very good. Our waiter gave his recommendations on the meal choices and he was right-on. We used a Groupon for the 5-course meal. Our waiter advised us that we could also visit the website to get the same deal any time. The food was delicious. The venue was very interesting, as it is an old mansion, and... More

No tours, you just get seated wherever they decide to put you and the food was nothing spectacular.No salad with your entree and very little bread. Dessert was the best thing.

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we could not have asked for a better dinner night out! The hostess were the most friendly we have encountered, our waiter just the friendliest and professional we've seen in a long time and the food...well, I just wish we could have met the chef. I HIGHLY recommend making... More

We've been to Briarhurst before but this time was very special. Hannah (manger) & Alex (server) were very busy last night when I took my wife to Briarhurst on her birthday. But you couldn't tell. The service was great rivaled only by the food. The two of them along with the cook(s) combined for an absolutely exquisite dining experience! We... More

We live in the area, but have never had a chance to go to Briarhurst Manor, until now. Our dinner was outstanding, but it was the people and service that really made our night. Our server, Hanne, made us feel right at home with a level of personal service you just don't find now-and-days. We had the five course meal... More
