The Greenbriar Inn does the best buffet brunch in town. The restaurant and staff are very welcoming. It's tucked under the Boulder foothills in an older, charming building. The food is high quality and plentiful. There are three serving tables: salads, hot, and dessert. The hot table has a wonderful array that includes waffles, blintzes, salmon, turkey, beef, quiche, and much more. But, make sure you leave room to taste some of the yummy desserts, such as bread pudding, mousse, cheesecake, chocolates, brownies, etc. And to increase your dining pleasure, consider adding the bottomless champagne. Cheers!

Food was interesting and well prepared; top notch sauces. Staff was professional and helpful. Old style European décor is tasteful. it is a trek from Boulder but worth it especially for a special occasion.

We heard good things about the Greenbriar Inn. We thought food was good but food over priced. We sat next to loud group. The server was almost as loud as the guest and she did not seem to know about the menu.

First time here and all I can say was outstanding. Our server was extra ordinary prepping both the Caesar salads for our starter and for dessert banana’s foster. Both my wife and our main entree was delightful.

This is one of those unwise out of the way places you find that I will definitely be coming back.

Valentines. In time for reservation but waited 10 minutes to get seats with open tables. Another 10 minutes for first contact with server. After that everything was very good.

Although located north of Boulder, on the way to Lyons, Greenbriar is always worth the drive. It is an upscale country inn, serving gourmet fare, but maintaining a casual atmosphere. One would be as comfortable here in dressy attire as in more everyday casual clothes. The service is always exceptional--professional but very friendly and helpful. In our opinion Greenbriar is one of Boulder's best. Go for broke, with table-side preparation of either Caesar salad (best in Boulder) or Beef Tartare as well as table-side flaming bananas Foster. This being Valentine's Day, the menu was pre-fixe, so more limited, but still worth the visit. The wine list is endless. We always leave with regrets for not having been here sooner and more often. We'll work on that.

Our server, Steven, was SUPER! He was patient, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Very welcoming.
All of our food was WONDERFULLY tasteful and cooked perfectly.
We also really enjoyed the sample dishes that the chef sent out periodically.

It was our 45th wedding anniversary, and the manager (?) comped our desserts as a gift!
All in all, a PERFECT night. Thank you!

My fiancée and I are looking at wedding venues so wanted to try out the restaurant for the food. We were so pleased with the quality of service and the dishes we ordered were amazing! So delicious!! Beef Wellington and Pan Seared Trout - just excellent! Can’t wait to return and we may have found our wedding venue.

I have brought my family to the GB many times for the brunch, and was surprised this time at the increased price. Over $300.00 for breakfast is too steep for me, so won't be coming back. We were looking forward to the oyster bar but found they had a bad taste. It took over 20 minutes to get coffee and champagne and because one person had to leave at 11:30 for work, this also affected our experience.

I was a little disappointed because we asked for a corner table and did not get one, even though the restaurant wasn’t super busy and they could have accommodated us. I also mentioned that we were celebrating birthdays and this wasn’t addressed.

New Years Eve Dinner 5 course, fine dining!
Food was excellent, service impeccable, fixed price a little high but included a $15 credit per person for drinks.

Can’t wait to go back for their regular menu, next special occasion.

A Boulder standout for over 50 years!

The ambience was nice for a special occasion and quiet conversation, the staff was attentive and polite, but the fish was bland and no additional flavor imparted by the sauce. I had also originally ordered a pasta dish, which was out even though we had an early dinner (6:30pm) and there were few quests.

This was for my wife's birthday to celebrate with friends, and none of us were pleased, much less impressed with our meals.

All of the meals we ordered were excellent tasting. Desserts were good too. Only complaint is about the bread. Basket came with tasteless white bread rolls. Additionally, there were some other type of bread which was tastier, but the rolls were awful.
