Nice setting and fairly romantic ambience. Staff was accommodating to my girlfriends no dairy/ no red meat diet restrictions. Five course meal was well prepared and there was minimum wait between courses. The steak strip plate was worth the money but probably not the scallop dish. Overall very... read more

My husband heard about the Briarhust Manor from a friend and he made a reservation for us while we were in town. Our visit was the first time either of us had been to a place that served a five course meal, and we loved it! The hostess and waiter were both very hospitable and friendly and we found the... More

When my husband and I married, he made reservations at the Briarhurst Manor for our honeymoon. Unfortunately, my husband became very ill and we weren't able to go. Fast forward to 15 years later, and he took me for our "make-up" dinner. What an amazing dining experience! We were greeted by a wonderful maitre de who kindly listened to us... More

Briarhurst Manor is an historic manor built in the 1800s. It has been beautifully restored and turned into a wonderful restaurant. Our waitress, Tommie, was extremely attentive, and when she discovered that I didn't eat seafood (which was our amuse buche course), she brought a suitable replacement. The presentation of our food was impressive. Every course was artfully presented, as... More

We ate in the upstairs dinning room. A comfortable atmosphere and the service was great. A good value for the meal. The new menu changed some of the previous items but the best change for us was the bread pudding. We hope they keep it on the menu. Their take on the French Onion soup is different but pleasing.

We booked a tour of the manor especially the ghost siteings and a dinner for 9 people The tour was fun and we were even linked to a ghost site app. Dinner was wonderful. It was the best food on our trip and we stayed and ate at the Broadmoor. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. One of our... More

Briarhurst Manor, its staff and food, are like a roller coaster. One some visits, the food is spectacular, the service impeccable and the ambiance is beautiful. Other visits have offered terrible service, cold/half cooked food with loud, obnoxious tables surrounding us. This place is truly hit or miss!

After receiving a Groupon for the Briarhurst Manor, a friend of mine took me with her for a birthday dinner celebration. She was very surprised at the selections, the food, presentation, and service. It is easy to tell someone how good it all is...but much better if they experience it themselves. The food was cooked as requested, they were aware... More
