Alberta Tomahawk Steak
the one and only, picture worthy, 48oz. certified angus alberta ribeye
barley risotto, carrot-ginger reduction, arugula, pea shoots
hand rolled ricotta gnocchi, fresh atlantic lobster, cherry tomatoes, pea shoots, cream, parmesan
Great menu with creative creations! The lobster poutine was amazing! The Josper oven makes everything taste amazing.
We appreciate your review and are happy to hear you enjoyed your lobster poutine. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
I would probably skip the tomahawk steak. Just too over done and definitely not enough for 2 people but had good taste. Definitely pass on the dessert. The Apple crumble was way too big and tasted starchy and just lacked in flavor, also it needed more ice cream. It was the smallest portion ever. Amazing service! Very attentive but I would probably not go again.
Hi Natalie, we really appreciate your feedback and are happy to hear about the amazing service! We are sorry to hear that the Tomahawk didn't quite meet your expectations, we would love the opportunity to see you again and make it right for you. As for our desserts, we are always working on improving our recipes thanks to the honest feedback we receive. We hope to see you again soon to try more of our tasty menu options. All the best, Briggs Management

Hi Susanne, we are so happy to hear about your experience with us and will be sure to pass your kind words along to Ellis as well. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future!

Food was amazing! (As always)
Our server was super friendly and your bartender made us super yummy shots. Would definitely come back
Hi StaceyC, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Heather was our server and was an absolute delight! Some of the drinks are little unusual. I had the Dark Old Fashioned and it didn't resemble the original drink at all. The food all came out nice and hot. We had the calamari as an appi, which was delicious. For my main I had the tenderloin and it was perhaps the best I've ever had!! This was our first time at the restaurant and I'll certainly be coming back.
Hi Richard, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience and we will be sure to pass your kind words along to Heather. We appreciate your feedback about the calamari and tenderloin and are delighted to hear that it's the best you've ever had! We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Amazing experience, great food, very engaged waitress, amazing date couldn't ask for better!
Hi Sherif, thank you so much for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your date night with us and look forward to hosting you again soon!
Bruce was the most wonderful waiter I’ve had in a long time! He was friendly, kind, helpful, made great suggestions; I could go on.
Our evening was made delightful because of him!
Hi ChristinaL, Thank you so much for your review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us and we will be sure to pass along your kind words to Bruce. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Usually very pleased with the food. This time the soup was served lukewarm. The server offered to reheat it. She returned with the same bowls of soup we in Soweto microwaved. We have no
Idea if the same bowls were given to the right guests. That should not have happened. New bowls should have been
Offered. The Caesar salad had no pigment no green. It was almost white and had some “rust” type marks. We would expect nice green romaine for the price. It was quite shocking to see such off lettuce being served. After the soup incident we didn’t bother complain out the lettuce. Disappointed
Hello LaurenE, Thank you so much for your review as we really appreciate your feedback. It sounds like your experience certainly did not meet the usual standards that we continuously strive to offer our guests. We would love the opportunity to host you again and make things right for you. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Briggs Management
The food was super buttery, pretty heavy for a simple pasta with seafood.
To be extremely honest, this place has already been a lot better. It's sad to see it the way it is now...
Hello LiviaC, thank you so much for your review. We appreciate your feedback and are disappointed to hear that your meal was not up to par. We would love the opportunity to see you again and make things right for you. We have recently released a new menu and we are confident that you will find an item on there that reminds you of what you've experienced with us before. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Briggs Management
Great waitress. Went for GF options, but their weren’t a ton. Food was okay, but nothing to get excited about.
Loved our server Heather, the steak was outstanding, indoor ambience five star, the deck could use a screen from street and heaters. Overall we were delighted with our experience.
Food and service were good. Staff and management mask policy was not. This was the ONLY establishment we visited in a 9 day swing through BC and Alberta where mask denial was open and the staff had to be asked to don a mask....troubling to us.
Server couldnt get orders right, watched food sit and wait for 5+ minutes before brought to the table.
Was difficult to locate server if we needed anything.
Over cooked tomahawk , poutine wasn’t as good at it was before
Excellent as always. It is one of my favourite restaurants.
The servers were very attentive and the food and drinks were delicious. I ordered the Beef Sandwich, my friend ordered the Lobster Gnocchi- we both loved it and then we shared the beets and the chocolate pot. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amazing service, great and friendly staff! Patrick the waiter was very energetic, friendly, explained the menu very well and maintained a level of professionalism! Food tasted fantastic! Would definitely come back.
Dining at Briggs Kitchen was delightful. We had great service and the food and drinks were amazingly good. We were on the patio and the motorcycle traffic on 10th Avenue was annoying, but we did choose to go on a Sunday evening of a long weekend.
We have been going to Briggs for years, and have always had a lovely dining experience. We often take visiting friends and family here for supper, and celebrate occasions here. However last night was the last time we will come to Briggs. I am a celiac, and know that eating out is always a risk. Usually we tend to eat more than one meal when we go out, so usually when I get cross contaminated I do not blame Briggs. But it turns out last night I had the best server ever (and we have had the management serve us countless times) and she informed me that the meal I have been eating is in fact MARINATED in glutenous marinade. So regardless of the substitutions I was constantly being fed an allergen. Due to this negligence between previous servers and the fact that my meal (probably my most favourite thing to eat) CANT be made GF at all…. We won’t be returning. We will continue to recommend to friends without allergies, however anyone with any sort of allergy should stay very far away from this place. In 2021, the menu should be clearly labeled with allergens, and if not, the serving staff and kitchen should be informed. Thank you to our lovely server last night, I’m sorry I don’t know your name but you saved me a lot of heck for the next few days to come.
Server was very attentive and addressed all our needs. Really enjoyed the Beets and Salmon. The outdoor space was inviting.
Our waiter was fabulous, super engaging and personable and had us laughing. Next time I go I’ll make sure to sit in his section. Great food as well and the patio was lovely to sit on. Another great experience at Briggs! Will be back again soon
First time. Not the largest menu , but wide enough selection to please about anyone , including plates under 30$
Generous serving. Tasty well cooked short ribs , slightly over seared potato pancake. Lobster gnocchi sauce is the best seafood sauce I had in years. Definitely made with rich cream and lots of flavour. No compromise made by the kitchen crew. Cocktails well executed. ( real egg white in the Sour)
Enthusiastic service. Good vibe. Nice venue. Definitely recommend.
Used to be really good but limited menu now and disappointing food compared to pre-Covid. Service great. Patio nice.
Pre COVID Briggs was a favourite destination for lunch
Menu has changed quite a bit and it seems there are fewer
options now. Lunch was good / ok not great
Service was very good but the restaurant was not busy
Briggs is our favourite restaurant. They are experiencing a small growing pain with a lot of new staff, but they are almost back to 100%! We had a lovely dinner with our server Ellis, and we are looking forward to going back. As we are returning customers, we know exactly how each meal tastes, so we are patient for the new kitchen staff to find their rhythm with the existing menu.
The service was excellent and very attentive. We had a 6pm reservation which was immediately available. Great food and ambience.
We had a great night with two of our friends. It happened to be right before they lift the mask restrictions and we walked in w/o masks and felt so liberated because it wasn't enforced upon us. Our server was helpful and pleasant. They weren't busy so we had their full attention pretty much.
Enjoyed everything about this restaurant, food, service, space/ambience. Great food and wine at a reasonable price.
Great service! Very attentive
Awesome service, our server was amazing. The patio was beautiful in the shade. The Briggs burger was delicious!!
Nice, enjoyable evening once we were moved to the patio
Food was delicious and hot when it arrived
We went for Father’s Day brunch and sat on the patio. Food and service were excellent!
My wife and I are planning on a dinner there very soon with friends. Highly recommend!
Very disorganized and took 2 1/2 hours for our meal. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. Then it took us half an hour to have our drinks served. We never received the waters we requested and then it took about 40 minutes after that to receive our appetizer (a single order or chicken wings which should be pretty simple). We received one of the three entrees and it took another half an hour for the other two entrees for our table to be served. Something to do with a system error and our meals were submitted on different chits to the kitchen?? All said with a 7:30 reservation we finally ate about 9:45. The food did taste good but the service was a disaster. I would never go back.
We always love our dining experience at Briggs. Amazing food for value and the staff are so great.
Our server was extremely lovely! Food was delish. 100% recommend the calamari and waygu sandwich!
But their current espresso right now, omg! It’s delish I almost went for a third serving 😍
Brought my partner there the next day just for the espressos!
Very cute place, can envision it being much more lively after covid.
Great food and great service
Found this gem on TripAdvisor. Will definitely be BACK! The ambience was awesome, the service was energetic and excellent, the food excellent. Our favorite part though was the cocktails, they are the reason for my 5* rating. The whole table enjoyed the drinks immensely and was very impressed with the cocktail menu.
