  • I am Not a Bacon Lover

    I am not a bacon lover, or a pork enthusiast for that matter. This Berkshire has changed that for me. Four of us shared the "bacon flight" and it was fantastic....maple glazed, balsamic, curry and garlic. My pork tenderloin was was tender and delicious. Others had giant pork chops, and the pork belly special. Everyone shared. It was a nice atmosphere for an after work client dinner.

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    From the service to environment to food, this restaurant was so refreshing. It have the impression of farm to table without being overtly hipster cool about it. I knew I would love this place when we arrived and the front door listed the dress code as "be yourself". Our servers were perfect, not to invasive but Johnny on the spot when we needed them. The food was decadent. Try the bacon flight. It's like nothing you've ever had. I had the pork belly confit which became a little too rich but was so delicious and the sticky toffee pecan bacon pudding is a must with some Irish coffee! A definite stop for bacon/pork lovers!

    Very laid back setting, but a calm ambiance even with the five tvs playing sports. We came just for Restaurant Week. Lots of pork and more than enough food (the salad was way too much to finish, so I gave up and moved onto the shared appetizers). Wednesday is also half priced bottles of wine, which is fantastic when you get a bottle of red that pairs nicely with the all the food.

    The food and atmosphere was great. We went on a Saturday night and the service was great. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was amazing. Our only complaint was that there were only 3 shrimp on the plate. The pistachio crusted pork chop and the pork tenderloin were boh great. We will definitely be back.

    It's no secret that we are lacking in good restaurant choices in Stapleton, although that is slowly changing. The Berkshire has made some great menu changes and the last three times we've dined there, we've been very satisfied. They are consistent and convenient. Great job.

    If you like bacon (and who doesn't these days...other than trollish contrarians), you'll be very excited by The Berkshire's overstuffed bacon-centric menu (with a "healthy" dose of all other things pork). However, once the food arrives, the novelty quickly wears off. Our meals weren't bad, necessarily, just not as good as our expectations (and not worth the "foodie" prices). Additionally, there is little attempt to create a pleasant dining experience. The decor is generic and bland and the noise level (despite being seated in the "quiet" area away from the bar) was unbearable. Much of our unpleasant experience had to do with a very loud table of cackling ladies, but it seemed like this was the rule, rather than the exception.

    Most dishes here focus on pork and they're great! The bacon hummus was to die for and the 'plain' grilled cheese wasn't so plain with bacon on top. The paired tomato bisque was mouth watering. Atmosphere was good with a modern pub feel. Small, but will definitely visit again.

  • All about the Bacon
    CelticKirk
    Dined on 7/18/2014
    The restaurant is simple but with a Pig theme and has a menu that focuses on pork. The food was good but not necessarily outstanding. We tried the bacon flight as an appetizer. There were 4 slices of bacon on a plate with some light condiments. One of the slices was strong which made it a a little difficult to differentiate the flavors of the other three. It might have been good had the waiter mentioned to try that one last. They have a good beer selection and if you get the short-rib burger, as I did, be sure to get the demi-glaze that is supposed to come with it. It was dry without it, but when I asked the waiter he brought some and it made the meal much better.

    The Berkshire Eggs Benedict was awesome. Instead of an English muffin, the Berkshire Benedict sits atop Texas toast bread pudding. The poached eggs were perfect, not overdone--and what's not to like about BACON.

  • Don't order Benedict
    32roll
    Dined on 5/25/2014
    Overall the experience was good. Although I made the mistake of ordering the Benedict. Their twist is to make it with your choice of bread pudding or Texas toast instead of an English muffin. I ordered the Texas toast thinking bread pudding would be to mushy. Unfortunately the toast soaks up the sauce and ends up soggy and piratically bread pudding anyway. I ended up pulling it out and eating the eggs without it. Typically their food is very good but they changed their menu and this specific option was a bad idea.

    I live in Stapleton and have been going to the Berkshire ("the Berk") about once a month or so for the last 5 years. In all that time I can't say I've ever had a bad meal. The Berk has a friendly, neighborhood pub vibe but the seasonal menu is unexpectedly diverse. The place is known for its devotion to bacon and pork, but the lighter fare is excellent, also. The scallops are a favorite. It's also a nice place to stop in for a beer or two, and the cocktails are solid.

    We went for Easter Brunch and had a great time. This is a very casual place, definitely nothing fancy, but you don't come for the ambiance, you come for the food. A very unique menu which offers unusual flavor combinations which delight the senses. If you're less adventurous, they do offer familiar fare. Throw in bottomless mimosas, which were delicious, and you have the recipe for a memorable experience. Our server was very attentive, despite the Easter crowd, and was friendly and efficient. The highlight of the meal was the dessert, Sticky Toffee Pudding a la mode. Simply incredible!

    Always apprehensive when we go to a new restaurant with fancy names but this one was a gem. Between the four of us, we tried virtually everything that was offered on the Denver Restaurant Week special menu and were all extremely pleased. One member of our party is very picky about his food and he loved his. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a nice place to eat.
