Each day, you will wake up to a plentiful bountiful breakfast with both healthy choices and traditional favourites. Enjoy carefully balanced menus with extensive choices and flexible alternatives. Whenever possible, we use local ingredients, including many from our own gardens. We also offer an extensive selection of Ontario VQA wines, as well as a selection of international choices.
The Briars dining room is host to guests, as well as locals alike. The menu is extensive – but not overwhelming.
My friend, who was on a restricted diet, was able to find something suitable each meal – and to top it off – the food was great!
One thing my girlfriend and I kept saying while we were at The Briars, was that it felt as though we were in the movie Dirty Dancing and staying at Kellerman’s Resort. LOL
Nobody puts Baby in the corner.
This feeling was only heightened when we learned each overnight guest, with a meal package – had the same table reserved in the dining room for their stay. I loved our little table beside the fireplace!
Our fine dining rooms have all been redecorated and are accented with crisp linens, silver plated cutlery, and fresh flowers or plants in season. The atmosphere is relaxed and sociable, with attentive dining room service. We offer a separate family dining area so that families and guests can enjoy their meals peacefully. The resort’s indoor spaces, including the dining rooms are non-smoking.
During our stay, we had two fantastic dinners.
The food was prepared fresh, using as many local ingredients as possible each course was just as delicious as the last!

The Briars Resort and Spa is dedicated to providing our guests with the freshest and best of all choices.
On Sunday morning, we feasted on the amazing Easter Brunch at The Briars.
The next morning, we were were not sure what to expect for breakfast. We weren’t sure whether it would be a continental breakfast or not. We were pleasantly surprised that it was again a a sit down, order from the menu meal.
French toast with sausages, served with fresh strawberries, cinnamon butter and local maple syrup.
Oatmeal, with granola, bananas, and raisins served with a fresh fruit cup.
We want to ensure we are serving you quality meals while leaving the environment in the best possible place for ongoing rejuvenation. In addition to using our own gardens on property, and using local produce as much as possible, we have also seen the importance in supporting sustainable seafood through the Ocean Wise Program, and feel that you will too.
