The Briars-- New Dining Room

steelydad | Jun 9, 2009 11:36 AM

Things I have always loved about the Briars-- a relish tray full of crisp celery, radishes, carrots, and olives, and the family sized bowl of crunchy homemade coleslaw that the waitress brings before every meal. Honest food-- Prime rib, baked potato, home style green vegetables. Generous portions of fresh seafood. Tasty, huge portions of chicken parmegian with a nice side of pasta for my growing teenage sons.

My only gripe was the dining room, which was a tired, poorly lit, with a grungy old carpet. But given the informality of the place and the prices, I was willing to accept it. Well, I went for a quick bite two Fridays ago, and lo and behold, the owners built a new addition to the restaurant, a new dining room. It has kind of a men's grill county club feel. High ceilings, faux mahogany paneling, well lit. It was a pleasure to dine there. It has been open for 6 months I am told, but I had not been in to see it. It takes the restaurant to a new level. I did notice the prices had been notched up a couple of dollars per entree, but it is still a good value.

It is a real crossection of a crowd. Blue collar, white collar, and everything in between.
