“Great Food, Great Ambience, Awesome Service”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We ordered the 5 course meal with filet mignon and the meal was one of the finest we have ever had. All the courses were exceptional. As if the food wasn't enough, the service was also exceptional. Josh was our server, and it is worth noting that he was one of the best servers I have ever had and my girlfriend agrees. I generally eat at fine dining establishments and Josh's attitude, knowledge of the product, and level of service was second to none. I would definitely recommend Briarhurst Manor.

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.

“Service? What service. Last week's leftovers.”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

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 the attention of another waiter, our meals were served. They were from last year's leftovers -- soggy and cold. Left the food slop, paid the bill, and will never return.

“Fine Dining at It's Best”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

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 of caution though; if you hope to enjoy this gem on the weekends...be sure to make reservations.
