The Manor has got the beef!
You ask where's the beef but here you get the beef and the lobster! Their lobster buffet is great...The amount of food here is awesome and you cant leave hungry. They got it all and thats the rub...what to eat first, second, third fourth, fifth, you get it!
Their room layout is somewhat tight and the plates are across the room because they pack in a crowd, its nice for $65 a head on average. BUt I wish they served only the tails as you waste half of the lobster if you dont like the guts part..
All in all its a fantasy dining experience, what you waiting for ? YUMMY YUMMY...

Formal Dining but not as used to be
We are going to the Manor for years and several times as guests but is not changing with time is going back ! Examples
Service : they use to fold napkins during dinner as soon as you live the table =not anymore
we left our fork and knife in the plate the server put back on the table instead of changing
coffee was served with no cream or milk but to get the server attention took long time coffee was cold by then but they didnt offer to change
Servers too busy talking in corners instead to do their job well they are right the tip in included so service doesnt matter even if you print that customer can change tip option no one will do it !

Wonderfull atmosphere. The food was so good as well. It was nice to see the place my parents got married at 40 years ago. Beautiful place.

A First Class Experience
An excellent establishment offering fine dining at prices that are within bounds (Wednesday nights BYO is an added option) with first rate service in a pleasant atmosphere this restaurant merits a regular visit for the frequent restaurant goer in search of comfort and service in addition to fine food accompanied by a piano music.

GREAT PLACE TO CELEBRATE OCCASIONS. LOBSTERS WERE VERY GOOD AND NOT TOUGH AT ALL.

special buffet in West Orange
The manor is the only restaurant I have encountered in more than 20 years that has lobster on the menu, I havew encountered this once before but it was perhaps 25 years ago, and included southern , i.e. clawless tails, but these were the real deal....Maine lobsters and the claws available separately also on the buffet....it was a bit pricey compared to your typical buffet but for a lobster lover like me and my guest well worth it.h almost forgot; the dessert buffet was also notab;y special.

Come here every year for our
Come here every year for our anniversary because we got married here. We absolutely love it! Delicious food, excellent service and beautiful presentation/atmosphere. However, every year we come, the cannolis are always stale! Also, the dress code has gotten very causal and lost its elegance. And for such a stunning dining room that resembles the beautiful Titanic, cheap flowers like carnations on the table just doesn't match the ambiance of the rest of the room . Those are my 3 very truthful suggestions to keep The Manor's elegance and class intact.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner...the wait staff was friendly and wonderful. Plus we never felt crowded at the buffet. Just the right amount of diners.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
One word, EXCELLENT ! Plenty of delicious seafood including all you can eat Half lobster and claws, oysters, shrimp, and various other fish and shellfish. Also carving station and land lovers favorites. The service was excellent and my martini was perfect. we celebrated my wife's best friends retirement by treating her and her husband to the buffet. It is expensive but well worth the cost.

We love going to the manor! The food is so delicious and fresh. The service impeccable. The atmosphere is just so beautiful.

outstanding buffet (featuring high quality lobster cooked to perfection) in elegant setting. Two hour limit leads to rushed eating and uncomfortable need to watch the clock. Although time limit is not strictly invoked, time limit does negatively affect dining experience.

he was very unpolite with me, I did not like his behavior and I did not give any tip.
If you look in yours track records you may find Who I am talk about.
My Bill was around USD 35 at the bar before geting the wonderfull buffet

I usually enjoy their food, but on this night, the lobsters were dried out. Very few had the eggs or the green.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have gone to the Wed. brunch several times a year for years. This was the busiest I can recall.

lobster buffet .. perfect
been going to the manor for years for the lobster buffet. i stick to the lobster and shrimp cocktail on the buffet and both of those are delicious. there is a tremendous selection of other hot and cold dishes, but i don't waste space on those! dessert offering is extensive as well. as a special treat, order an irish coffee as an after dinner drink: they make it table side and it's really quite the process to watch!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual - Excellent!
We and our guests were very pleased with the abundance of food choices and quality. For an outstanding dinner experience, you can't go wrong at The Manor!

A Lovely Afternoon!
Other than the wait staff needing to be more attentive with clearing dishes and providing water and silverware, it was a lovely eating experience. Thank you.

I was suprised by the lack of people on the night we went, usually when we go, it is packed and you are waiting in lines for everything. This night there was no waiting. If you want a very special dinner on a special occasion, you cannot beat The Manor.
Thanks again for asking

Great Breakfast Buffet
I don't particularly like buffets, but this one is different. The food was fantastic and plenty of it! The spread was large and bountiful . The display was inviting. It made our special occasion even more special....

We had the fine dining buffet
We had the fine dining buffet and, unlike buffet foods, everything was delicious. There were many selections of fish, meat, chicken, pasta and best of all, great desserts. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special dining experience.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just like the Manor's Cocktail hour
The buffet is similar to eating cocktail hour at a wedding. Its a lot of food. Save room for the lobsters - thats the best part. Not as romantic or quiet as ala carte dining. Much better for a family celebrtion. Service was excellent - our waiters were friendly and attentive.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about the evening was excellent. The place is beautiful, the service was first rate, the environment is relaxing, and the food was delicious.

Anniversary Dinner - Wonderful
We had the Lobster Buffet for our anniversary dinner. It was the MOST pleasurable buffet I have ever been to and ranks up their with one of the best meals I have ever had. Carlos, our server, and his team made sure the evening was special.

Fantastic setting with great culinary expertise. My family has been going to The Manor for over thirty years and it always is exciting.
My daughter brought her three month old and he even enjoyed the experience. He was dressed in a tuxedo and everyone that saw him wanted a picture.

Really great place to eat.
This is the ultimate buffet experience. I enjoyed the food, especially the seafood. It reminded me of the way cruise line buffets used to be - elegant.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Manor has always been our choice of a special place to celebrate life's most important milestones. Our latest visit was to celebrate my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary. My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Manor 32 years ago.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food price was not to bad you had to dress up big selection seafood and meat no raw clams or hot steamers that was a bummer

Kevin and his staff do a terrific
Kevin and his staff do a terrific job. I just wish I had six stomachs to enjoy more of the fantastic lobster and other goodies here. I''d say I'm a lobster-phile and there is none better. Thank G-d the manner is an hour away from me because if it weren't I'd have a table named after me and I might actually grow those six stomachs, as it is I stand accused (rightly so) of having three!! I hope my levity is easily understood. The bottom line: Kudos to the manner, the ambience is stunning, the service is terrific, the food is above average, particularly the lobster and the desserts which are just fantastic!!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dine at the Manor every year for our anniversary, and we always enjoy the seafood buffet. We found a few new items on the buffet this year that we enjoyed, as well as the old favorites.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
some of the lobsters were undercooked, but otherwise great
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my gf for her birthday. She loved it. I ran a bit late but they still accommodated me. A bit pricy, but there was a nice selection. Overall it was a nice experience that I think we all she do.

Gourmet buffet dining. A little
Gourmet buffet dining. A little on the expensive side at $50 per person, but most come here for all the steamed lobster you can eat. The dessert buffet is top notch with many items to choose from. We have been coming to this restaurant for 40 years. Extremely gorgeous gardens and grounds. The water they serve is from their own private well and is great, better than most bottled water.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
The lobster buffet was delicious. Excellent choice of foods. Raw bar was outstanding. The wait staff could have been more attentive in clearing away dishes etc. Otherwise, an very enjoyable evening and we will be back !

Check it out you will not be disappointed :)

Great, as always!
It's been quite a few years since I have had the lobster buffet here, but they never fail to impress. As always, the food and atmosphere was great. The cold seafood was great, (oysters & shrimp), the lobster both cold and hot, sliced down the middle was perfectly cooked and delicious, the carving station had prime rib, lamb & turkey, all perfect as well. All other selections, and there are many, including lobster bisque, soups, salads, and deserts to die for were amazing.
Everything was as I remembered, and consistantly spectacular.
I love "The Manor" and I will be back.

The romantic date
I lived in West Orange for almost 20 years, the West Orange Manor is such a beautiful place. I really wanted to take my girlfriend here on her 25th birthday, and she really loved the place. She loved the food, and so did I. I've been to Manor quite a few times so I know how impressive it can be. I wanted her to get the full experience and we took many pictures. I will definitely go again. Thank you!

I have been dining at The Manor since I was a child and it's always been a wonderful experience. The ambiance is always classy, the staff superb and the food beyond compare.
