So we booked two separate reservations for my going away party from work. One table for 10 and one table for five. We had not told them that these were related and so they were not next to each other. Briar, and did an excellent job of accommodating us and getting us all into one large table that fit all of us just perfectly. The beer, as always, was quite good. I did not have any food on this occasion but on previous visits I have definitely enjoyed it. Above and beyond service across-the-board on this visit.

Food was disappointing. Service was great! One of us forgot a mask and host was really rude and told us we must walk 5 blocks back to our car. We respect mask rules, but our table was literally two steps inside the door and they did not have any to offer.

We understand not everyone has the same opinion regarding COVID protocols, however Briar is complying with the requirements set in place by Denver. The enforcement is placed on each individual business owner, is complaint based + if not followed could result in large fines. Our intention is never to make a guest feel unwelcome but ask for all to be patient and understanding + not blast the business for following the rules. Heather Jaeger Director of Operations

We were a party of 8 on a Monday evening. We were seated upstairs where Dave, our server was pretty busy since he was the only one upstairs taking care of the tables, of which most were full. Dave took good care of us, explaining that he was "our guy" and that he would be in charge of our orders. The food was excellent, the music was a little loud but all in all a pleasant experience.

Always a pleasure. Love the brussel sprouts, fish n chips, and the hot chicken. We also had a delicious vanilla fig old fashioned, and a beer flight. The only thing we didn’t love is the mac and cheese, which is disappointing because it’s always been one of our favorites here. I miss the old recipe with thicker sauce and baked cheese. This new version was a bit under seasoned. But still love this place.

We had a great time at Briar Common last weekend. The food was very good - the Nashville Hot fried chicken sandwich was spicy, a little sweet and the pickles and slaw balanced it all out. Homemade chips were great, the buffalo cauliflower might be the best thing we ate all night, and the other apps and main dishes were great.

Service was spot on. Wow, the server (I forgot her name) was very friendly, attentive, and other servers pitched in and filled up waters, brought us beers, and stayed on top of it all night.

The place is very cool, too. Reminds me of a cool, old corner tavern in an Eastern city. Neat old building, modernized, but very welcoming and just a cool spot to hang out.

Great place overall and we'll definitely return.

My friends and I had a wonderful experience at Briar Common. The food and drinks were delicious and inventive while providing enough options for the picky eaters in my party. The servers & staff made the experience even better.

I highly recommend the buffalo cauliflower as an appetizer! The flavor and textures were so good, soft on the inside with a great crispiness on the outside while not feeling too heavy. All of the beer and cocktails paired well with the food.

Our server Chris was a rock star, he provided so many recommendations that we enjoyed. As our BAC levels increased, we undoubtedly became slightly obnoxious (sorry Chris). However, Chris remained super upbeat and positive whilst remaining helpful and calm.

I will definitely be dining again at Briar Common & recommend others to give it a try.
