Having never attended a dinner/theater presentation before I will confess some initial confusion about what was going on. The ad we responded to read Murder on The Plains (The story of Tom Horn) which caught my eye because I am familiar with the Tom Horn story. When we arrived for our show the presentation was something else entirely and I am unable to give you the name of the silly story depicted. When we were arrived we were seated in a lovely antique glass bench window seat which under ordinary circumstances would have been an intimate and lush setting. Unfortunately we were seated closely next to another party who resisted introductions and refused to discuss the impending melodrama we were all to witness. The drinks we ordered took a while to arrive and the main entree was tasty but cold. I think our neighbors had the same problem but I only know this because I heard them discussing it among themselves. I honestly thought the tickets we bought on line covered the dinner also but that was not the case. Be prepared for a little sticker shock on the dinner price. The night we were there the young wait staff spilled at least one entree on the stone floor. The covered plate scooted across the room like a hockey puck. Another waiter spilled hot coffee down the back of a lady in the Conservatory. The actors wander the establishment before and after the meal and do a good job of introducing themselves but a poor job of introducing their story. After dinner desert is served in the Conservatory and guests are seated with others guests at common tables. Here communication was also limited to parties attending together or to parties only dressed as fancy or as casual as their neighbor. The Conservatory is an obvious 21st Century add on to the main house and has none of the Gothic charm of the main house. Guest are welcome to wander the house and see those areas not locked or roped off from public view. Lighting in the Manor is dark and dim and is badly in need of a 21st Century upgrade. Under most circumstances this dim lighting would be romantic but the mood is kind of destroyed when you are forced into close proximity to other people who don't care to talk or visit. The murder/mystery was concluded there in the Conservatory and it went off like a moderately funny comedy act. Final interviews with the actors in character was a tense experience and could be met with some hostility from the tiring actors. From the time we were seated (5:00 PM) and until the time the show was over we had spent over four hours in the establishment being forced into interaction with fellow citizens also in attendance. By the time the show was over we were ready to leave. BTW, the Governor did it.

Response from the owner - in the last week
We are extremely concerned that your experience at Briarhurst did not meet your expectations. Is there anything we can do to make up for your disappointment. We encourage our staff to rectify any perceived flaw immediately. We want your evening to be perfect. The event is intended to be a humorous loose tongue in check interpretation about Tom Horn; we are sorry that this was not communicated to you more clearly. Other patrons expressed a very positive experience about the price of the event, the theater, the service and the quality of the food. We received more than 80 comment cards that stated their experience was Outstanding, Wonderful, Excellent and not one negative comment. We did not find a negative comment on your card. We realize that sometimes people do not want to say anything negative out of fear of embarrassment, but we gladly accept responsibility not making your experience a better one.

We were in town on vacation, and happened upon this place through Groupon. We had an enjoyable evening, and were happy that the manager let us to the building. Very nice property. Our server was very attentive, and we enjoyed each course.

Wrote an extremely long, thorough review for this place, and it disappeared. Not going to go through that effort again. Suffice to say, I have no opinion on this place as a restaurant, but as a wedding venue, don't bother. Poor service, poorly kept up grounds, lots of hidden fees, etc. Their 'wedding coordinator' is awful to work with (inconsistent, flaky, pushy, takes 3 days to respond to questions but never fails to ask for money) and they require you to use their baker (who made a cake, that, while delicious, looked like a 3 year old decorated it). The house and grounds look far better in promotional pictures than it does in real life. If you're looking for an outdoor venue, definitely look elsewhere or prepare to be horribly disappointed.

It is shame that you took so much time to write a very long review only have it "disappear" I know how frustrating that can be. We are very concerned about your review and negative experience here. We have attempted to find your contact information, but do not have any record of your visit dining here or an appointment for a tour! Please contact us so that we may attempt to correct the things that are not pleasing to you. We take all comments seriously, good, bad or indifferent and encourage all of our guests to please let us know about anything that is not pleasing. I can only guess you may have made a visit during the winter when Colorado is dry and brown. The vast majority of our guests have a very enjoyable experience here anyone who may question this may go to our Facebook page, (Briarhurst Manor Estate) and read many very positive reviews

My husband and I took my mother, his mother, 94 year old grandmother and disabled aunt to the Briarhurst Manor for the Thanksgiving buffet this afternoon. The staff was so attentive and helpful in assisting us prepare plates for these lovely ladies. Our server, Jason, was very personable and professional. We were so thankful we chose to go out for Thanksgiving at the Briarhurst. All of us ate all of our favorite dishes and tried a few we had never had. Everything was great. We were all very impressed with everything - the food, the service and the atmosphere were excellent. We will be going back for many meals at this lovely establishment.

We had dinner again for my husband's birthday there last night. As before, it was an entire experience, not just dinner. This time, we took our kids. The staff made my daughter feel special, as we were celebrating her birthday, as well. `A great deal of attention is paid to detail, and courses are served promptly without making us feel rushed. It's a minor thing, but another nice touch is that usually when we take our kids somewhere nice, the only option for a "fancy" drink is a Shirley Temple. The Briarhurst had a number of selections, and that alone made them feel catered to. Beyond the service, the food was excellent. We had baked bri and escargot for apps, and not only were they delicious, but the presentation was stunning. My son and I had chicken cordon bleu, and both enjoyed it a great deal. The birthday boy thought his elk was excellent, and our friend raved over her scallops. However, my daughter's steak diane was truly phenomenal. We each ordered different desserts, and the consensus was that the creme brule was the winner. However, the show stopper for me was the tomato soup I had in place of the salad. It was the best soup I've ever had, and I'm sure I'll think over it for at least another year. At my begging, they filled two containers and allowed us to purchase some to take home. Some people have commented on the price, but you get what you pay for. Not only did we get an excellent meal, we enjoyed a wonderful experience. Thank you, Briarhurst, for yet another fantastic evening!

The food was wonderful and Josh, our server was excellent! My husband ordered the Redbird and I ordered the Steak Diane as part of a 5 course meal. It was quite a bit of food to eat and we had to save room for the dessert which was outstanding particularly the Apple Crisp Cheesecake. It was a very nice experience and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to dine for a special occasion or otherwise.
