We had a less than spectacular meal in a less than wonderful atmosphere. The food was very average, at best. The burger was over cooked; the fries were over salted; the halibut was underwhelming. The noise level was high, as was the music, as if everyone had to talk more loudly to be heard over the music, the combination of which made it hard to hear anyone or anything. Our server was great, helpful and very nice; that's the only saving grace for the evening. I will not go back, even if there are no other options; not worth it!

We stopped in for poutine week to try out the lobster poutine, which was fantastic. We were intrigued by the cocktail menu and tried out the Oolong Lady and the Finch, both delicious, as were our entrees. Great food and service, would definitely return.

Service wasn’t the greatest. We had to look for our server to get our bill and generally there was an absence of restaurant staff. Burger was very good. Steak and eggs only okay.

We visited Briggs for the first time before a concert at the Saddledome. Lots of parking nearby. The food was delicious -- handmade pasta and a yummy halibut sandwich. Happy hour prices on wine and beer. Good service, able to see the hockey game, nice pub decor.

We come here quite often. Chicken is unbelievable, best chicken I’ve ever had. Tried the local sausage dish this time. Fantastic!!!

Steaks were over done. Asked for medium rare and it was almost well done. With it being a business meal there was no time to send back. What bothered me the most was that the chef cut the steak into strips so he could clearly see it was well and not med/rare.

We visited for Big Taste and our lunch was great. We started with the tomato soup, then crab gnocchi and the most delicious white chocolate mousse with fruit for dessert. I don’t typically love white chocolate so I didn’t have high expectations for dessert but it was amazing! Coming back next week to try other stuff on the menu because the food on the table beside us looked really good too.

Fantastic place. Made a last minute reso for 7 people for a birthday and upon entering they made sure to recognize it! The service was amazing except for a few small bumps, but at the end of the day all the staff there worked together as a team to ensure that the birthday girl was treated like a princess. Thank you!

I was very excited to go here but was extremely disappointed...service was sub par and the food was not at all what I was expecting.

Ordered the 48oz Tomahawk Steak and half of it was fat and not edible. Definitely not worth the $100 price tag.

Side Vegetable came out cold and one of us had to wait for a beverage for 30mins cause the kept forgetting it.

Wrong glasses of wine were brought to the table and before we could even let the server know he was gone, customer service expectation for a place like this is far superior to what was actually given.

The service was outstanding. The server was able to recommend food, knew the menu well and our water was constantly being filled. Even after we paid our bill and just sat at the table, he came back numerous times to fill our water.

We had a lovely server, she was very knowledgeable about the menu and I appreciate that. There was a small mix up with our appetizer, the cheese fondu which, once she realized, took care of right away. Btw, I highly recommend it, the cheese was just delicious! We both ordered the steaks and they were good but they were served on top of the fries so when we were trying to cut the steaks, the fries went everywhere. Over all, a good experience, I will definitely be back for the fondu again.

We came for lunch before heading to a matinee. While I was disappointed to find that the lunch menu wasn't being served and we had to select from the brunch menu, the options were still varied and TASTY! Our server was very pleasant and prompt, and was well supported by the rest of the serving team. The greeter asked us what we ordered when she was refilling our water, which I thought was a nice touch! I felt really well taken care of, and will definitely be back to try the dinner menu!

I went here for a girls night out. We had excellent service from a girl named Katie. Food was delicious except we ordered the mahi mahi and it was over cooked. We told Katie about it and she removed it from our bill! The short rib and Brussels sprouts were my absolute favourite. I ordered the Penicillin cocktail and was not disappointed. It was crisp and light and not overly sweet. Due to the open concept of the restaurant it was quite noisy. It was hard to have a conversation. But we were seated right by the kitchen so next time we would ask to be seated a bit further away. Overall we all loved it and would go again!

The lettuce wraps were very spicy but did not mention that in the menu and the tacos were good but didn’t feel well after eating them. The beats were really not that good, was disappointed with the flavours. Food was disappointing

The happy hour options were very basis. Just $5 wine and beer. No food options.
The ambience was ok. There is no real booths. Just one sided booth seats and the other side, hard chairs. The burgers were really good, my chicken meal was ok, nothing special. I didn't think the $22 price tag for the chicken dinner was good value.
So while I don't have anything bad to say about the place, nothing special stood out for me so I'd give it a "Meh".

Briggs continues to maintain the quality of its food and provides good value for money. However, the service was good but not quite up to the standard that we have been used to in previous visits.

A friend and I went for dinner to get caught up and ordered a Tomahawk steak each even though they are mean for two. Super tasty, we ended up ordering some sides on their own since the Tomahawk doesn't come with any. It would be nice to see an option for that.
