We couldn't get on the Cog Railroad tour so we punted and came up with Briarhurst Manor. What an interesting tour! It is all self guided and so very interesting from its mismatched architecture to its beautiful but simple furniture and decor. The manor was in danger of being torn down at one point... read more

We had a private dining room for our party of 9. Ordered several different Starters and Entrees. So much and so good that there were bites from different plates going around the table so all could try. We were trying to see how we could take the staff home with us. A must dinner stop if in the area.

Our friends invited us to celebrate their last payment on their mortgage. We ate in the main dining room, beautiful and elegant. The waitress was very knowledgeable and courteous. She explained everything about the meal, which was absolutely delicious. We had a wonderful time...can't wait to go back!

Awesome service. Some of the best food I've ever had. We used a groupon and it was incredibly affordable for the amount we paid. The grounds and manor are lovely and well-kept.

Well we have been to four fine restaurants in the last month or so as a social event with fiends and had really great excellent food from presentation to taste. Our charge card has been a bit abused. We went to the Briarhurst Manor the other day (solo) and felt compelled to pass along our experience. Our interest is to... More

Nice place for a special dinner out. Good selection and staff. Book early for holiday dinning because it is very popular.

We went to a wonderful Mothers's day brunch. I am not a fan of Buffets but The Brairhurst if the delicious exception. We had such good food that we went for the murder mystery dinner on Father's Day. I would recommend the Brairhurst for good food and service.

Me and my husband are on our honeymoon and wanted to go to just one fancy dinner. Wow! We found the jackpot! The atmosphere wasn't uppity at all, it was amazingly laid back while maintaining every bit of proper etiquette. I had the lamb while my husband had the elk, both were amazing but we would recommend the elk! Our... More

Took my wife to the Briarhurst Manor for her birthday. I made the reservation, on-line, a few nights before. No problems encountered--worked just as advertised!! We had the Lobster Linguini and Baked Brie for our starters and the Alamosa Striped Bass and Shrimp Scampi for our main courses. Desserts were the Classic Creme Brulee and their Orange "Creamsicle." All courses... More
