Briarhurst Manor is quaintly nestled in the foothills of Manitou Springs. Unlike most establishments in Manitou, there is ample parking on the property. Inside and out the Briarhurst is well maintained. None of which would matter if the food didn't match the setting. As you would expect; the food lives up to expectations. From salmon to beef & chicken dishes,... More

Hadn't been here in a number of years. The beef short ribs were great. I'll be back. Probably skip dessert though, it wasn't as good as the rest of the meal.

My husband and I celebrated with an evening out, and really enjoyed the ambiance and grounds, and the service was impeccable. There was an old world feel to the entire evening, from the almost invisible waiters, (meaning we never noticed them refilling glasses, removing dishes, bringing extra items). Explanation of the menu items was done without pretension, there were dishes... More

We recently had the five course meal at the Briarhurst Manor and it was out of this world! The food was delicious and well prepared from course one to dessert. The ambiance is perfect, too. This place really isn't to be missed. You can tell the food is prepared fresh and nothing is packaged or precooked. We both chose the... More

My wife and I had made reservations online to have Turkey Day Dinner there, and we were not disappointed. We elected to have a served meal instead of their Thanksgiving Buffet, and we were very pleased with the results. The food was superb. Service was a little slow, but not unreasonably so for a mid-day Thanksgiving dinner. Our young waiter... More

This old historic mansion is a lovely place to dine especially for a special occasion. My husband and I went there recently with another couple to celebrate our birthdays. Even though we love the ambiance and the excellent service, our experience was mixed regarding the food. The two men ordered Beef Wellington and Steak Diane and they enjoyed it very... More

I took my husband to a birthday dinner last night at the Briarhurst Manor in Manitou Springs. I think he only agreed because I had a $50 off coupon that I'd bought a number of years ago through my office - because he doesn't in general like to go to spiffy places. But let me tell you, folks, this was... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The atmosphere was so romantic with the soft music playing and this mansion is so very beautiful. The service was personable and laid back. If we had any questions at all, our server was happy to answer any and all of them. The menu offers different selections than we're used to... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our first wedding anniversary here last night and we couldn't have made a better choice!!! The place is so wonderfully romantic! As a European I dread most of those awful restaurant chains in the states. This place is truly unique! We had an amazing waitress (Hannah) who was incredibly helpful and attentive and... More

We were recommended by Red Crags Inn and were not disappointed. We attended a wedding there and the night after the wedding we invited the parents of the bride and all of jos family still there to dinner. The food and service were very professional and we were so surprised to find fine dining in an area so out of... More
