My husband and I went for breakfast , so we thought. I order the Southern breakfast and my husband ordered a simple breakfast of eggs over medium, potatoes, sausage and toast. When our breakfast came out both of our eggs were served

I'm very confused by the negative reviews. I've eaten at Briarpatch at least a dozen times and the food is always excellent. The service ranges from average to veru good depending on your server, but I've NEVER had below average service.

Food was GREAT.... STAFF... another issue. First problem only ONE BATHROOM. The place is too busy for one girl and one boy restroom. When I finally got into the bathroom 15 min. wait. There is a waiting area inside the bathroom. Upon

THE PLACE IS FILTHY!

I went to Briarpatch this morning for the first and LAST TIME!

Starting off with the set up of the restaurant. It is tiny, cramped, and the tables are filthy! I walked into the restaurant and saw dirty tables

There really should be a Zero stars button!

We stopped in for lunch after visiting the Morse Museum. My sister had eaten here several months ago, for breakfast and wanted to eat here again. We were one of only two other tables in the place, at lunch time, which should have set off warning bells. Our server(no name tag) was an older gentleman, with glasses and a heavy accent. He argued with two of our party about how they wanted they're meal prepared, trying to change their minds to what he wanted them to order. Three of us ordered the grouper sandwich, one blackened with onion, one grilled and one fried (the last two are the ones he argued about). Finally, he put in our order. The other two in our party ordered breakfast food. While waiting for our food our server brought over pitchers of tea and water and placed them on the table behind us and then disappeared. We had to self-serve for our refills apparently, which we did throughout our time there. Our lunch took 30 minutes to come out and there was NO one in the restaurant! When our food finally arrived two of the three groupers were bloody raw. One of us asked for something else, a plate of plain scrambled eggs (nothing else) and I sent back for another grouper. The eggs came out fairly quick, but I had to wait another 15-20 minutes for my grouper and no onion. I was too hungry to bother asking for more onion. Everyone else in our party was long since done!

Now for the service: Our server was barely visible the entire 2 hours we had to suffer this place. When we complained about raw fish there was no apology, just a curt, " We'll make another one." We had to self-serve our drinks. We had to steal rolled silverware off another table to get extra napkins. Those drinking coffee were left empty and cold most of the time. There was a young black man who was a server/busser ( no name tag) who noticed our displeasure and was so super sweet and tried to smooth things over and hoped we would not hold this experience against the restaurant. Right! I truly hope he can find a job at an establishment that is worthy of him!

When the bill arrived the groupers had not been removed. The plate of eggs, with no toast, bacon or anything was $9.50. When we pointed this out the server he said he forgot to remove the sent back grouper, but any decent restaurant would have taken them off the bill completely and not charged for the eggs, out of sheer embarrassment. When the bill arrived again I noticed they had charged 50 cents for onion on my sandwich (really! I could get a whole onion for that!) When my Mom asked that be removed, since I did not get the onion on the second sandwich our server very rudely said, "Well you got it on the first!" True, but I couldn't eat it because the fish was RAW! He refused to remove that charge. At this point we'd all bee pushed to the limit and my Mom demanded to speak to a manager. And guess what RUDE sever man says he's the manager! Of course, he is! At that point we just paid and left, we knew we'd get no where with him.

On our way out we were loudly complaining about the food, service, treatment and a gentleman standing outside next door said to us, "I hope you're not talking about my favorite restaurant?" We said," The Briar Patch?" and he said "Noooooo, that place is awful and the kitchen is filthy! Never eat there!" Well, where were you 2 hours ago? On the way home I started having stomach pains and by the time I got home vomited everything up. I was the only to get ill, so maybe it was because I had eaten some of the undercooked grouper. It was the perfect ending to a perfect Briar Patch meal.

Our party consisted of a couple who had owned there own restaurant and two previous servers. We were dumbfounded that this place can keep it's doors open, with such abysmal food and service. Since this experience I have made sure to spread the word of how awful this place is and have been repeatedly told how filthy and gross the kitchen is. I hope this saves someone else from an awful experience too!

If I could give this restaurant no stars, I would. While their food is okay, they are CROOKS. When we dined there on a Sunday for brunch, there was a slight billing error where we were undercharged. I called the restaurant back to have them correct the charges, and they overcharged my credit card afterwards. Since I didn't see the receipt, I couldn't sign for it and they could charge me whatever they wish. I will never dine there again, it's pathetic.

The last time I went here the waiter wouldn't bring us toast (he told us the chef didn't like him and wouldn't give him any) and the service was awful. They seated way too many people in the restaurant with not enough staff to accommodate.

1. Critical. Observed food stored on floor.French fries,walk in freezer. Repeat Violation.
2. Critical. Observed encrusted, soiled material on slicer. Repeat Violation.
3. Critical. Observed interior of reach-in cooler soiled with accumulation of food residue.Strong odor inside cookline cooler opposite stove. Repeat Violation.
4. Critical. Observed combined ready-to-eat potentially hazardous food held more than 24 hours not date marked according to earliest date of opening/preparation.Cut melon cookline cooler
5. Critical. Observed raw animal foods not properly separated from each other in holding unit/during preparation.Beef over seafood in w walk in freezer.

Please note, repeat violations.

As a former employee. Heed my warning...

The Briarpatch used to be "the Best" cafe on Park Avenue....low and behold, over the years the services has gotten worse. The servers are young, college students and the owner cares nothing about them. She actually takes their tips, no wonder they don't work hard. The food, used to be superb...actually there are certain meals that are fabulous. But, if I can say to the diners of this retsuarant...the kitchen is filthy! I have been in the back, see how the food is made and the cooks are so unsanitary, the area where the food is kept is horribly discusting and filthy.

Don't waste your money, so on down the street to a high class restaurant where the money you spend will be worth it and clean!

My wife goes here to meet "the girls" for lunch or brunch. They have a great time chatting and eating and never complain about the food or service. They also never bring home a doggy bag. Apparently they serve just-right portions. I know they have a wine, beer and champagne menu, and they always share one of the specialty desserts.

I always head to the Briarpatch when I come to town and I have yet to be disappointed with the food.
The pear and gorgonzola omelette is fantastic!
I find the menu caters to everyone and would gladly recommend the restaurant to my friends.
The only downside is the crowded dining area but this leads me to believe that the Briarpatch is truly a favourite with many return customers.........yum!

Pros: Different twists on regular meals

The Briarpatch offers everything from homemade ice cream to french toast with cream cheese and strawberries. A treat at anytime, it is a great place to meet up for brunch. Arrive early as the restaurant is popular though a bit slow on the service side of late.

Once a good place but no longer. Rickety tables, no silverware, way too young and inexperienced staff, no manager on duty, and the worst omelet ever!!! Our meals did arrive timely; however, the omelet was a disaster - Overcooked from too high heat, too fast, to the point that it was burned and smelled of sulfur. The plate upon which the omelet ?floated? was filled with a brown watery liquid. As I cut into the omelet, another ? cup of liquid flowed out from the mushrooms. It was gross and inedible. Furthermore, no fruit accompanied the dish as stated on the menu. If they can?t find a chef, or teach a chef, to saute mushrooms correctly (until they?re cooked) and cook an omelet correctly (slowly over low heat), then the item should not be offered on the menu. My guest's "Ultimate grilled cheese and ham" was not much better. Lousy hot cocoa - powered with no whipped cream or marshmallows. It's Park Ave, come on, dress it up.

I once recommended this place - no longer.

The $8 fruit bowl was very small with just strawberries and grapes. They were out of the cottage cheese that comes with it so they offered cream cheese instead. What? Then still charged us full price. The tuna wrap had to be the most boring sandwich I've ever had. The special said cranberries and walnuts. Mine came with onion and cheese. No tomato, no mustard or lettuce, nothing. $12. We waited over 20 minutes for these two dishes and nothing was even cooked! The table next to us sent back their meals for being wrong too. For these prices I'll never return.

Being a life long resident of Winter Park Ive seen my share of restaurants that start off great but over the years decline not only in food quality but service as well. The Briarpatch is no exception to this. The last couple times I have gone there, both the food quality and server has just plain been bad. Usually I can count on good food even is the service is slightly slow, but not lately. It is a shame it has come to this maybe you will have better luck than me here, as I can no longer dine here.

Their breakfast is great, their lunch/dinners are great! The desserts - AWESOME! I mean people are complaining because they cost so much - give it up - have they seen the size --- you can feed a small army with those things...try making one of those and see what happens and how much it costs. Small in size compared to other establishments, but still worth at least one dining experience! LOVE IT! (Try the pancakes!!!)

I visiteded Sunday morning after reading the review in the Sentinal, I was looking forward to a good dining experience. I was very disapointed in everything from the service to the food. I went knowing it would be busy and even settled for a seat outside. After being seated for about fifteen minutes and still no sgn of drinks for the table Iwent looking for the waiter. Breakfast was eventually served in about fifty minutes. People aronnd me where all complaining. Food was just o.k,I don't think I'll be going back to give it another try.
