May husband and I go here at least a couple times of month. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent! One of my favorite restaurants in Westchester.

The be fair, we have dined here several times and have been pleased with the food and the lively atmosphere. Both of those were missing on the Saturday night of Octoberfest weekend. The one constant was the attentive waitstaff who was unobtrusive, and attentive. This restaurant always greets the tables with warm rolls, breadsticks, coleslaw and a tray of carrots... More

The briars has been around for decades, but the food is always great! My family used to have family dinners there all the time. The food comes in huge portions, with their classic cold vegetable and dinner roll appetizers. They even created a back room for private events! They did a few of our family events for us there. You... More

The restaurant has a classic lodge/pub feel, but it's the great food and incredibly friendly and helpful staff that really makes this place stand out. We went for a brunch with family that included three generations, and everyone loved their meal. Wide variety of food from traditional comfort food to modern taste combinations and everything was wonderful. The staff truly... More

Strictly for the over 70 crowd. what was once a solid family restaurant is now in decline, serving bland, unimaginative food.

Have dined at The Briars for years and enjoy it every time. Recently was there and enjoyed soft shell crabs. They were delicious and a very good portion. They are known for their cold slaw that is placed on the table after you get seated. The waitresses were cordial and willing to get you whatever you wanted. Home style cooking.... More

I went today after a funeral luncheon and was very impressed. The meals were nicely presented, fresh ingredients and perfectly prepared. Great calamari - tender not rubber bands. This is an all around good place for a fine meal in a congenial setting - very local and very good.

The food is great and the service is excellent. So worth the price and the trip from Lower Westchester, The portions are plentiful. The homemade cole slaw is fabulous. This time I went for a grilled salmon and it was terrific. We shall return!
