Briarhurst Manor is a beautiful setting to have dinner. The food is excellent. Our waitress was knowledgeable and efficient. She was very friendly. Ask for Hanne.

Horrible experience. Arrived for an evening dinner with spouse. Upon being seated, we waited and waited and waited. Finally, ordered coffee and the wait staff took our orders. Years passed by. Got up and got our own coffee refills. More years passed by. More self-served coffee. Centuries are now passing by with no sign of wait staff. Finally, after getting... More

The Briarhurst Manor s not your average dining experience. First, the setting takes you back in time and is just so stately. We enjoyed the 5 course dinner....everything was cooked and served to perfection. The menu offers a variety of items to meet everyone's palate. Our servers, Jason & Tomei were very knowledgeable and provided great customer service. A word... More

We enjoyed a birthday dinner last night at the Briarhurst Manor that was outstanding. Our waiter Josh was polished and the food scrumptious. You don't need to travel to LA or New York when there is food like this in Manitou Springs. We had the 5 course dinner and it was worth every penny! There were separate rooms which seated... More

My husband and I dined here for our first wedding anniversary just after Christmas. The service was wonderful, very attentive and personalized for us. Everything that came out of the kitchen was divine. We were even given gift certificates to use during a future visit. The meal was the most expensive I've ever eaten but one of the best.

We arrived shortly before dark to this former manor home of Dr. Bell, the co-founder of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. The home was rich with wood-paneled walls, fireplaces and even a suit of armor. Diners were all well dressed, the hostess appeared soon after in yesterday's jeans and a wrinkled shirt. The menu features a number of Colorado... More

On Sunday March 8th we (early evening) we had an extreme good experience; good service from Mr. Alex, and as usual a wonderful meal. We hope to be back, especially on our birthdays and anniversaries, and using their special rewards certificate. Enjoy! Dave & Diane Gilfillan

The food and the service was very good, but watch out. They really nickel and dime you when it comes to all the extras for a wedding. Make sure that you get EVERYTHING in writing. We paid much more than we were originally told. The coordinator was very unprofessional as well, and very scatter brained. Very hard to work with.... More
