The Briarwood Inn has been a part of Colorado’s finest dining traditions for over thirty years. Owned by the same family since its creation, our wait-staff, bar managers, and behind the scenes personnel have been with us for most, if not all of that time, which is why we are able to consistently provide the superb food, decadent ambiance, and outstanding service you have come to expect, and why you are always welcomed by a familiar face.
We are nestled in the foothills of Golden, Colorado, just 20 minutes west of Denver; an idyllic setting for an elegant and memorable dining experience. Romantic and quiet, with an ambiance reminiscent of a European country inn, this beautiful restaurant features sparkling chandeliers gracing high ceilings, stained glass reflected off dark woods, plush seating, one-of-a-kind, hand-carved antique furnishings, and glowing fireplaces to warm the soul.
As opulent as the decor is, the cuisine and service parallel the atmosphere in quality. Consistently recognized as one of Metro Denver’s finest dining establishments, The Briarwood Inn has won many accolades over its history, including the AAA Four Diamond Award, Mobile Travel Guide Four Star Award and the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. The Ford Times acclaimed it “one of the top ten restaurants in the nation.” The Briarwood has also been featured in Gourmet and Continental Airlines Magazines, and has been chosen “Best Overall” and “Most Romantic” by The Denver Post, 5280 Magazine, Westword, and AOL’s City’s Best numerous times.
