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

The lovely setting of this restaurant, by a mountainside with it's own beauty is breathtaking . The staff is gracious and adept . The atmosphere of the various dining rooms is lovely and quaint . Presentation of the food is wonderful . Our entrees were sadly overcooked, Steak Diane and Wild Boar ribs. There was not a knife that could... More

We loved the secluded feel to this mansion in the woods. It was quiet, white tablecloth dining. So nice after a hectic day. Our server Alex was wonderful. He knew the menu and dishes by rote and helped us make some good choices. We had the wild boar chops and the duck. Both were good, but the duck was a... More

This restaurant was just 5 min. away from our B&B. Dinner was in an old lodge, which was very unique with about five different rooms, making dining a more intimate experience. Our waiter, Elijah, was excellent. We had a bottle of Buena Vista Pinot Noir and bowls of Lobster Bisque (lobster in bottom of bowl and the creamy broth poured... More

The beauty of the structure was breath taking. The parking lot is a problem is you own a low to the ground sports car. We parked off sight because of this. The food was delicious and beautifully served. We had venison osso bucco, and Japanese eggplant--both delicious. Our waiter, Elijah, was very good and attentive to our needs. The atmosphere... More

Thank you Alison and the Briarhurst Manor for making the wedding of my dreams come true. When we look back at our wedding June 21 there was no other place I would have wanted to have our wedding. The Manor, the staff, the food, the cake, Alison and everything about the Briarhurst was more then what we could have expected.... More
