Dining at Briar Rose was a
Dining at Briar Rose was a wonderful experience in every aspect. Pleasant, comfortable atmosphere not requiring patrons to dress up. Everyone on the staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. Our filet mignon and lobster tail were delicious, and the chef was willing to prepare sauteed spinach for us rather than creamed. They graciously provided a yummy chocolate desert for our 13-year olds birthday celebration. Would definitely return when in Breckenridge.

Excellent steakhouse. Gluten
Excellent steakhouse. Gluten free options -even a GF dessert. Food was excellent. Wish they had a GF beer option (all beer is bottled, so how hard could that be?). Missed the outstanding overall rating because we felt ignored some of the time by server-we were among the first to be seated as we had early reservations. Then felt rushed as dinner service picked up later.

I hosted a family dinner for our grandson's 1'st birthday and we had a party of 11. It was a memorable meal! We couldn't have been more pleased with the menu choices and service throughout the evening.

My family of 4 enjoyed our dinner very much. The steaks and fish were delicious and the sides were wonderful. Our server was very attentive, I have some food intolerance's and he made sure to let me know what I could eat!
We will go back the next time we are in Breckenridge!

Service wonderful. Provided
Service wonderful. Provided good options for times to make reservations using Open Table unlike some other Breck resturants who just have a 5:30 or 9:30 option even though they aren't full. Requested romantic spot and they went out of their way to make sure we had a special evening.

Highly recommend it!
The duck was definitely in the top five ducks I have ever eaten. My wife had the elk medallions and they were also delicious.

White table clothes, linens,
White table clothes, linens, and proper wine glasses. Attentive service with the best overall menu in Breckenridge. As you might expect with a "Chop House", the ala carte menu is expensive but worth it!!!
This in no "hit and miss" restaurant; they do it right everytime!

bar was too loud.. atmosphere of bar and dining area don't match.. if you are from out of town.. don't go to the bar for a relaxing drink first... too noising.. music too loud.. it's like a college bar.. the dining room is great

We'll be back
Briar Rose was excellent, as always. Their entrees are excellent but may be surpassed by their side dishes, which are superb, as are the apps. I really ca not comment on the desserts as I'm always to full to have one as their portion sizes are very large. A bit pricey but worth it as we usually have another meal from the take home box.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful restaurant that epitomizes the town's Victorian past. Service was warm and friendly. While most of the food was very good, our steaks arrived grossly overlooked. The staff made it right immediately, so not a big deal. Still, it was a surprising error for an otherwise high quality restaurant.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I took a weekend off and headed for the mountains. We reserved a table at this restaurant not really knowing what to expect. We were seated right away, our waiter was excellent, made us feel we were the only two people he had to serve. The menu had some intriguing choices of which we tried a few. My steak was cooked to perfection and delicious. My husband had the prime rib which can sometimes be fatty, he was able to eat every bite it was so good. We really enjoyed the wine list. We would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or romantic get away.

After a hard day hiking up in McCullough Gulch (12,000ft), we were famished. Made reservations late, but still got a table near the window later in the evening. Restaurant very busy upon arrival, but our table waiting for us. Food great, service great. Beautifully thin wine glasses, just the thing for the feeling of luxury this restaurant exudes. My wife had the duck (huge serving!)... I: the wedge and the filet. Very reasonable prices considering the size and flavor of the servings, the ambiance, and the smiling unobtrusive yet timely service. Highly recommended.

Girls Night Out!
Enjoyed dinner with my favorite daughter. We were pleased with the service and our meals were delicious. Particularly liked that we were not rushed, even though it was a busy night with people waiting for tables, we took our time and enjoyed every minute. We started with the smoked salmon and escargot ... Yum! Spinach salads and shared the chicken with mac n cheese and broccoli. Very nice night all around. Cant wait til my next visit.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
scallops for all
Make the scallops a meal, they are huge, 3 is plenty for even a big appetite. My
small filet was worth the price, large sides. Spinach salad was my favorite.
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
All around great
Briar Rose is everything I look for in a restaurant. It has a great upscale feel with the comfort of your favorite restaurant. It feels like a special night out and like a night at the usual spot at the same time. The staff is friendly, familiar and welcoming. They have great recommendations and outstanding, cutting-edge cocktails. The food is creative but approachable, fresh and savory. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are somewhere happening. This is my favorite place in Breckenridge.

Absolutely fantastic!! The food and service were perfect. It was more than we could have ever expected. I would come here weekly if we lived in Colorado.

Group event of 12 people
We had a somewhat large group to coordinate. Service was great. Food excellent. I don't think we had one bad comment on that!
The manager was fantastic to work with. Hard to beat. I will recommend and also go back if we meet in Breckenridge again;

Well Done, Briar Rose!
From the time we arrived the Briar Rose staff took good care of us. They honored our request for a window table which set the stage for a nice evening. Service was excellent - attentive but not overbearing server which is always nice, Food was outstanding! My only complaint was they did not have any New York Strip that evening. However, the Prime Rib was to die for!!! When you add some of their amazing sauces, you have an amazing food adventure! Highly recommend!

Always delicious and wonderful staff. We go there at least twice a month

Great food! Awesome service! Large portions, so we shared everything, but really tasty!

The petite fillet was marvelous. Almost melted like butter in my mouth. Sides were terrific, especially the corn.

A gourmet treat
What a find! Although there are other good food restaurants in Breckenridge, this one really stands out. We do a lot of eating out in New York City and this restaurant can more than hold its own in comparison. My rack of lamb was done to perfection, the duck was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. A very important thing for us senior citizens is the ambiance and noise level. We actually could hear each other without straining!
The wine list was extensive with choices in any price category.
The total was a little pricey for the area, but less than I would have expected in NY. Dinner for4 with appetizers, and wine was a little under $300.

Good Food Great Cheesecake
We had a great time. Good Service, Make a reservation during high season or you wont get in. Small dining room. They also have a nice Happy Hour bar area as well. The desserts were really good and they said they make them in house! Mmmmm

The Elk was excellent and the service helpful and attentive. Best meal we had in Breckenridge.

This was an excellent dining experience. The only knock was our waitress was given 2 larger groups just after we sat down and she was spread too thin from a service perspective. Mussels appetizer was excellent.

Best Steakhouse in Breckenridge
Briar Rose has the best selection of steaks and they are prepared to perfection. There are interesting side dishes( a la carte) that can be shared. Wine is served in generous portions in beakers if you order by the glass. It's a great dining experience. The prices are high but you are paying for a superior product.

Fantastic meal in Breck
I'm not sure how we have missed coming to the Briar Rose before now, but I know it will become one of our regular spots when in the mountains. All of our main courses were solid. Where they shine is their multitude of side dishes. I can highly recommend the green chili corn, chorizo Brussels sprouts, Mac 'n cheese, and roasted asparagus. We were too full for dessert but will try it on our next visit.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Food in the Mountains
Love Briarrose! Food is great! Elk medallions are awesome & everything else. Always eat there when in town Summer & Winter. Food & Service are always consistent never dissappointed!

Best beef in Breckenridge.
Best beef in Breckenridge. My wife had the wagu skirt steak special and loved it. I had the Filet Mignon which was very good. We shared the risotto side made with goat cheese which was excellent. Very enjoyable.

Our favorite restaurant in Breck!
My husband and I have been going here while visiting Breck fairly frequently over the last year. The food and service has been consistently great, and they noted we were return customers. I highly recommend the filet mignon, the green chili creamed corn, and the Brussel sprouts with chorizo.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was yummy. Don't
The food was yummy. Don't pass on the Mac & Cheese. I had the trout and loved every bite. Service was very good and very friendly. I would go back.

First time at the briar rose
We enjoyed our dinner at the Briar Rose. Unfortunately my filet was over cooked and surprisingly dry but the duck that my father ordered looked wonderful! A huge portion and prepared well. The crab cakes were fantastic and the Brussels sprouts were good but not amazing. Good service, nice drink list; we would go back.

THE TROUT WAS WONDERFUL. SO WERE THE SIDES. THE MAC & CHEESE WAS THE BEST. WE LIKED OUR MEAL SO MUCH THAT WE ATE THERE TWICE DURING THE WEEK.

Expensive, but quite nice
Food is wonderful. Good drinks. Nice wine list. Steaks cannot be beat in Breck. Make an evening of it and treat yourself! We had a very nice dinner the next night with our leftovers!

60th Birthday Cdelebration
We had reservations for 7 pm but called and said we would be 15 minutes late, they said no problem. We eventually made it at 7:30 and they still had our table waiting. Nice restaurant, our waiter was excellent and helpful with the menu. The guest of honor ordered a Cucumber Martini, not her best choice...But once the waiter saw she was not drinking it he removed it from the order. Prime Rib was huge (and I ordered the smallest cut), the Duck for the lady was excellent, and her husband raved about the porl chop, which was big as well. Only negative - Order the Fiji bottled water, the tap water left something to be desired

Best Waygu Strip
Service was wonderful, steak tartare wish it was diced instead of puréed, makes one feel like its not freshly prepared. wild game trio was quite delicious. The only reason the food did not get 5 stars was because of the Caesar salad. Worst i have ever had, fresh lettuce, ordinary parm, absolute horrible dressing when the salad arrived I wondered why there was barely any on the salad, requested more and when it Came to the table I realized why there was a lack there of. My entree (Waygu special) was one of if not the very best strips I have ever had in the United States. Best manhattan ever, go Breckinridge Bourbon. Your spirit is on fire.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is small but quaint. Each dish is beautifully prepared and the wait staff is very attentive to your every need. We had the sirloin which was perfectly cooked. The brussel sprout dish is a personal favorite. I had the cobbler for desert and it was delicious. We will be back!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Atmosphere
Great dining experience. The food selections were great (beef, game, fish, etc.) with a upscale touch to the cuisine. Food preparation was great and the service superb. I recommend the Bison Short Ribs. The wine list was better than most larger restaurants in big cities. Plenty of selections of both well known and more obscure wineries. Overall a 4 star experience and we will go back for sure.

Always love dining at Briar Rose
Usually a very busy restaurant (very popular), at this time of year (late October) it was quite easy to get a reservation and even get a prime window table. As always, the service was excellent. I love going to the Briar Rose.

Great first visit experience
We took advantage of the Passport 2 for 1 entrees and had a lovely evening. The food was delicious, the service attentive and the atmosphere perfect. We will be going back, special or no special.

Best Mac & Cheese ANYWHERE
We have been to Briar Rose on several ( 9) occasions and just love it. I order the same thing every time - Free Range Chicken (enough for 2) and the Mac & Cheese. Why change it up when you know it is great. Every table ordered the Mac & Cheese that night. Service is great. May need to ask for refills on water but otherwise - definitely out does every other place in Breckinridge.

I had heard good things from other people and thought I would give it a try. Our waitress was very helpful with suggestions on both the wine list and diner menu. I will be back again.

We enjoyed the Briar Rose
We enjoyed the Briar Rose and were happy to use the 2 for 1 entree. I can easily imagine how it could get quite expensive. Our waiter was good but kind of offended me early on and then after checking on us quite often, forgot about us when it came to give us the check and we needed to ask another waiter for our check. The food was excellent and I would highly recommend the mac n' cheese. Overall, it was a very good experience and would go back to the Briar Rose.

Outstanding Anniversary Experience
Congrats to the restaurant for one memorable dining experience and to Amy for her A-Class professional service. Amy was our evenings guide to culinary selections and proceeded to earn her place in our all-time hall of fame for service, food and wine knowledge and best waitstaff professional. She recommended a great off the menu wine as she noticed the section of the wine menu I was searching. Food: The scallops appetizer was profoundly well-prepared, followed up with a main course of pork chop and wagyu-beef New York strip with special sauces served on the side, Mashed potatoes creamy whipped to perfection. Grilled asparagus. Gluten-free dense chocolate desert. The food, the staff and the experience was excellent!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food for good price.
Breckenridge has a lot of restaurants that are pricey but the food isn't good. Briar Rose has really good food so I don't mind paying for it. Most of time I go there the service is excellent and it was this time as well. However, our waitress tended to only recommend the most expensive item every time we asked what was popular or good. I get bothered by waitstaff that does that. I won't hold it against this place because I have never seen her before and she probably won't be there forever. I say go eat there it's good. The sausage trio is delicious. The mustard crusted lamb is wonderful.
