In addition to serving up heaping portions of pig, we also take pride in our creative cocktails. We have a fully stocked bar and draft beers, insuring you will find the perfect drink to accompany your porky dish. The Berkshire hosts weekly drink specials and happy hours, giving you a reason to celebrate any day of the week!

Whether you are hosting an event, or just wanting to celebrate with a group of friends because it's Wednesday and you're craving bacon, stop by The Berkshire and let us show you just how much we love pig!

Good was pretty good, they didn’t have much of a selection for brunch. Our waiter was really nice but kind of took a while to get back to us on multiple occasions.

The service was horrible, we had to track down the waiter for refills and our starter took 30 minutes and 60 minutes for our entrees. Not once, did the server or host apologize for the delay or update us despite our inquire on where our food was. We watched 3 tables who arrived after us get their food before us.

The food was good, but not worth the crappy service and long wait for your meal.

Made reservations for 5, at 6:30, October 5th., for a Birthday Celebration. We asked to be seated up front but the hostess was rude and said due to all the reservations, there weren’t any tables up front. There were only four people in the restaurant at the time. We were sat next to the restroom in the back and it smelled. We also had a new waiter who let us sit a very long time before taking our order. We also sat without water. We’ve been great customers since 2010 and we patronize this place every two weeks. We’ve never had such rude or bad service before. One person ordered the pasta with chicken but they forgot the chicken. The airline chicken is lame, small piece of chicken, 3 sprigs of asparagus, and 4 cherry tomatoes. We know you can do better! When we finally left the front area was still not very busy so we could’ve easily sat in that area.

WE CAME DUE TO A COUPON, SO I DIDN'T CARE SO MUCH THAT IT WASN'T THAT GOOD. THERE WERE 4 OF US AND ALL OF OUR FOOD WAS COLD, AND IT WAS EGGS/BISCUITS AND GRAVY TYPE OF STUFF. COLD IS NO GOOD AT ALL. I REMEMBER COMING HERE BEFORE YEARS AGO AND ALSO NOT BEING IMPRESSED.

It was our first time there. We met for brunch and to watch the Broncos game. We had a reservation and our table was ready when we got there. The service was great! Our food was good. We’d go back for sure.

Our server was very friendly and attentive. I ordered a BLT and the bacon was difficult for me to take a bite off, but the sweet potato fries were delicious. I would definitely go back to try another entree or sandwich.

Found this place on line as it was local and not a chain, looked like something different. It wasn’t a fancy as I though but clean new and modern. Sandwiches, salads and a appetizers with four entree choices. While casual and not my usual dinner choice the food was tasty and very reasonable. I had the Bahn Mi meatball sub which was excellent- moist meat balls in a sandwich with a kick. My husband had the french dip and said it was the best one he has had! Well worth a visit to support a local eatery versus the big chains.

I hadn't been to The Berkshire in a while because it wasn't up to the quality it had before... I risked it after looking at the brunch menu. They are BACK! (Insert flailing Kermit the Frog arms) The food was good and hot.. the service was friendly and genuine... definitely going back to see how dinner is doing!

Kitchen missed two food substitutions so two of three of our orders did not come out as ordered. However our server Berkely did recitify the issues. Service and food were outstanding; my only comment is that the kitchen needs to be better at accommodating special orders which in our case were both dietary related.

The food was good; we had the BLT and the meatball sandwich, both with fries, however, it took 30 minutes to get two sandwiches to our table, and there were maybe six tables in the whole place. The banquette bench is very old and cracking, which was incredibly uncomfortable on the backs of my legs. Needs to be replaced!!

Shared the bacon flight among all of us. Nice flavors. The chicken was excellent with great flavor combos. One diner thought the pork tenderloin was a bit tough. We had a picky eater and the kitchen was very accommodating.

We had an overall great experience at The Berkshire. It was happy hour so drinks were $1 off, as were some snack items. We got 2 chicharones & street corn to start (both on happy hour). They were both good, although the chicharones were a bit too much portion-wise. We had a special they were having, fried Chile rellenos stuffed with pulled pork. It was delicious! Overall it was a great deal and we would return.

We came here to celebrate a launch to our two week vacation in Mexico. The waitress was good but had to tell us that they were out of several dishes on the menu. My husband and I wanted a cold beer but they were out of a few we selected so we settled for a jalapeño margarita and a Moscow mule. The food was common and I say that because usually this is a great place to dine.
We left sad because we are usually very happy when we have finished.
Sorry for the bad review. We usually leave very positive reviews but in this case the establishment needs to know that they are slipping.

In an empty restaurant they wouldn’t seat us without all of us. Wouldn’t let us move a table. Silly stuff in a completely empty space. Salad had 3 shrimp for $7. On salad of spinach.

We just moved to Denver and my mother decided to come visit for mother of day last minute. A quick google search of brunch places near us brought up the Birkshire. We were able to reserve a table online the day ahead of time. We drove to the restaurant on Mother’s Day and fell in love with everything about this restaurant. The location of it is adorable; we loved meandering around window shopping before our meal. We accidentally got to the restaurant twenty minutes before our reservation and they were kind and sat us anyways. Our server was full of energy and we had lots of laughs. Then the food. For two people in our mid-twenties who just spent a large sum moving to Denver, we were able to treat my mother to the most incredible brunch without breaking the bank. I’m pretty positive we will still be dreaming of those jalapeño poppers and eggs Benedict many days later. Thank you for helping me impress my mother last minute with such a wonderful experience!

Busy Mothers Day, but seated early for our reservation. Lots of bacon choices and wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable but a little slow. They were aware and apologized and wasn’t a problem for us as we were catching up with others in our party. Will come back.

The place is nice, the staff very friendly and attentive. However, the food was hit and miss for us. The steak special, cooked perfectly. The risotto was too al dente for my liking and expectation for the dish. The BLT was unfortunately pretty bad; buttered toast for the bread and bacon that was overcooked, making it tough to chew and lost balance for the sandwich. Worse, they were far from generous with the bacon leaving only half the sandwich with bacon in the bite. The jalapeno poppers were really good, but could have used a bit less sweet drizzle on them.

Eaten here twice and their food is really great. I've had crab mac & cheese & pasta primavera with shrimp...both delicious. My son had tomato soup which I'm typically not a fan of but I'd eat theirs!

This restaurant has reasonably good food. Most of the selections are "bacon-themed". So if you really like bacon, you'll likely find the food excellent. The atmosphere is quite loud and the tables very close to one another. We don't mind this, and really like the vibrant atmosphere. But if you are looking for a nice quiet dinner - this may not be for you.

We've been here a few times, and the food quality and service are consistently good.
