What is 315?

The Greenbriar Inn was built in 1908 and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It has been totally restored and decorated with an eye to elegant simplicity and comfort with a mix of antique and replica furnishings. The main floor is occupied by our restaurant, the “315”. During the winter months, our guests love to sit around our two fireplaces, and listen to live soft blues and jazz on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights. A 150-foot wrap-around deck surrounds the dining room and looks out over the garden and patio, where guests often sit under umbrella tables in the summer. Brick patios in the front of the house, and a shady porch are ideal for fair weather dining.

This is a unique spot for dining and lodging, located central to the down town core, yet in a private garden setting just four blocks from the Lake!

The restaurant features a hand-crafted martini bar and small-plate or “tapas” menu. We also offer main dishes for those wishing traditional fare.

Our catering department has served our community for since 1986, and along with our restaurant and Bed and Breakfast, have all received many awards for quality and service over the years.

We are well known locally for hosting smaller parties during restaurant hours, or larger parties outside of our restaurant hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 3:15 to close!
