Avoid this establishment if you are Africian American...very prejudice. The food was very good, however, we ignored and treated like second class citizen.

We had a delightful meal. The building has a 19th century charm and is beautifully situated in a courtyard and garden off of the main drag going into Manitou (and the driveway leading into the restaurant /lodge is easily overlooked). We opted for the fixed price 4 course meal and were not disappointed. One caveat: The bill was high.

If there's a better fine-dining establishment in Manitou Springs, we haven't found out about it. Briarhurst Manor has interesting menu options, a warm ambience about the surroundings, and an elegance of service that never intimidates. There are always little surprises compliments of the chef, and the all-inclusive multi-course menu option is fantastic...but you'd better be hungry. It's difficult to say... More

The Briarhurst Manor is one of the homes traced to the early days of Colorado and Manitou Springs. This a unique spot for meals. We have entertained business guests, family and employees here. If you are looking for a unique Christmas Party this is it! It is our favorite place for Easter dinner on "Mom's day out of the kitchen."... More

We had a business dinner with a group of 16. We had a private room and a very attentive staff serving us. The Manor is just beautiful and you feel like you have stepped back in time. We had the 5 course meal and not one person was disappointed. The food was presented perfectly and tasted great. The strip steak... More

The Manor has the atmosphere, the service and the food needed for an enjoyable night on the town. Whether you're a local, or you're a visitor to this beautiful location, the overall experience is second-to-none. We took advantage of a Groupon special, which helped keep the price down. What we paid, however, ended up being well worth the cost.
