Hamburger is excellent. Menu is extensive pasta, chicken, fish, beef most entrees are large and satisfactory to good. The welcoming table goodies are very good. Most desserts are very tasty. Bar drinks are weak. Prices are too high.

The Briars gives one the feeling of a cosy lodge one might imagine in the mountains somewhere. The food was great, the service excellent, and the atmosphere simply wonderful. We will definitely go back.
