Great Setting for a Quiet Lunch
The Manor Tavern is a special place for us. We took friends, visiting from Florida. We enjoyed a quiet and relaxed visit complemented by friendly and outstanding service topped off by an excellent lunch. As we lingered over dessert and conversation, our server was attentive and unobtrusive. We have always been pleased with our visits there.

A great bet!
A change in the menu would be nice. We go there so frequently that some new entree ideas would be welcome. The food is always delicious. Brunchtime right now is my favorite...2 menus to choose from!

This was not my first time and will definetly not be the last time. Everything was great! The waitress informed us about the upcoming menu changes and my friend who is on a special diet was given the opportunity to try one of the new special dishes. She loved the new dish!

The Manor Tavern is close
The Manor Tavern is close to home, but that's not the primary reason we choose to dine there. We enjoy the Manor Tavern because the menu offers a variety of delicious fare and the Sangria is always delicious! While they offer a good selection of bottled beers, they do not offer anything on tap. Outside of that, it's a nice place to enjoy a delicious meal, with knowledgeable and friendly service.

This was the first time I
This was the first time I had been to the Manor Tavern since the change of ownership. The food and service were fantastic - Tracy could not have been more attentive. Our table had a variety of foods -brunch, salads and sandwiches - everything was great. We would definitely recommend.

Too pricey for holidays.
Excellent food and atmosphere but the Easter menu was limited and very pricey! Would not visit on a holiday.

Since it was opened under
Since it was opened under new management I was a little hesitant about what to expect with the quality of the food. The setting itself is beautiful in horse country surrounded by rolling fields. It has the feel of an old country inn. The food was outstanding. We had a variety, from specialty salads to shrimp salad to the special of the day and everything was very good. Would go back in a minute.

Always a nice time at the Manor
Enjoyed our meal with friends from out of town. We like to bring our family and friends that come to visit us in Maryland to places that really show off the food and atmosphere of Maryland. The Manor Tavern is truly one of those places. Thank you for the great food and service.

Family Friendly Birthday Dinner
Our family recently had dinner at the Manor Tavern, to celebrate my son's 22nd Birthday. I had heard from friends that the restaurant had undergone many changes over the past few years so, I wanted to give it a try. All members of our party had a very enjoyable experience. The service, food prepration and presentation was excellent. The kale chips were enjoyed by all. The salad was filled with fresh delicious greens. All of our entrees, beef, fish and shellfish were delicious, including the sides. We were seated in a quiet side room, which was great for me. I wear hearing aids and many times I cannot hear table conversation because of too much background noise. Following my friends' recommendations, I too will recommend the Manor Tavern.

Manor Tavern is nestled in the horse country near Jacksonville, Phoenix, and Fallston. Our family has been enjoying the high level of quality food and sprits for years. The new ownership has stepped up the service and menu and is very attentive to every detail of our patronage. Highly recommend for meetings, and family outings, Romantic dinners, and awesome Sunday brunch.

Give the Manor Tavern Another Try
We hadn't visited the Manor Tavern for about three years, no complaints in past dining but nothing memorable. We decided to give it another try and both felt that it would be worth coming back -- especially to try one of the specials they have during the week.
The staff was friendly and attentive, the diners were a mix of young and older couples as well as families with children. The menu had a nice mix of dishes, not too far in any one direction. It appeared to have an emphasis of fresh vegetables and some unique flavorings. The main entrée gumbo was good -- not overpowering, but not as flavorful as I am used to in Southern cities. My wife chose one of the burgers and was equally satisfied. A nice evening out with local flavor.

Return to the Tavern
Haven't been to Manor Tavern for years.
Our return was a positive one.
Good food and great service from a first time waitress.
Visit from a manager was welcome.
All made for an enjoyable dinner.

Went for Father's Day brunch. Food was great with a nice selection even if you are not a breakfast food person. Also went with a 10 year old and he liked his pancakes.

A beautiful ride through northern Baltimore country...friendly and helpful staff...delicious food with something for everyone on the menu...locally sourced...highly recommend for a change of pace from the hectic downtown scene...had kale chips with a perfect burger...others in our group had a vegetarian entree, a steak, and a shrimp salad sandwich...yes, there is a variety of choice to please anyone and the food was worth the cost

The drive out and the setting
The drive out and the setting are positive parts of the total experience. Our server was very attentive and friendly, without being overly so. Our meals, the scallops and the salmon were great, but my first choice, the seafood stew is no longer being prepared. So, take if off the menu...

One of Hereford's Best!
New to the Monkton area, I found the Manor Tavern via Yelp. Booked a table for 3 for a girls night out. Hostesses were very friendly and we were sat right away. Server was also very friendly. Drinks (served in Ball glasses -- cute!) were fantastic. I had the peach sangria and it was perfect for a warm evening out on the deck. I had the special (crab on fried green tomatoes) and it was phenomenal. My girlfriend had the stuffed zucchini over quinoa and it was really bland. Disappointing, but everything else was really great. I can't wait to come back with my husband to share this place!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We hadn't been to Manor Tavern in many years. It is very nice. The scallops and pork fish was very good. The wine selection was good and we enjoyed a local wine. Only thing we would change was the fact that the bar is so small we couldn't get a before dinner drink. Thank you

great restaurant week menu
We dine at the Manor Tavern often, so had to check out their offerings for Restaurant Week. Appetizers: The portion of mussels was huge, and the sauce was excellent. The tower was beautifully presented and very tasty. Entrees: The chicken Ditalini and pork tenderloin were both very good; the bourbon cherries with the pork were quite a treat. Desserts: The espresso creme brulee was very good, and the chocolate-almond terrine was outstanding.

My sister is visiting from Miami...she and I enjoyed a delicious Restaurant Week dinner...a relaxing enjoyable evening for us!

I COULD NOT CUT MY GREEN BEANS
I COULD NOT CUT MY GREEN BEANS WITH A STEAK KNIFE. I UNDERSTAND THAT RAW GREEN BEANS ARE MORE HEALTHY BUT THESE WERE COATED WITH BUTTER SAUCE. I PERSONALLY PREFER VEGETABLES THAT I CAN CHEW.
ALSO, I FOUND THE MENU TOO LIMITED. THERE WAS ONLY ONE BEEF ENTRE' WHICH WAS A BREAKFAST DISH, STEAK AND EGGS.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a wonderful place in the more rural area of the county. You walk in past the huge kitchen garden; you are also encouraged to walk through the garden. While not all of the food is local (not many shrimp in Maryland) that is definitely the focus. I've had a fantastic hamburger (from cows raised within 10 miles), and delicious stuffed zucchini. I learned later the zucchini was vegan, I would not have guessed. It was stuffed with root vegetables (carrots, onions, ???) and served over red quinoa. Yummy, and all of those veggies came from their garden.

While the food was excellent,
While the food was excellent, the service was not up to what we would have expected. Our waitress was friendly but neglected water glass refills (on a very warm night) and we had to catch her attention to get drinks, as well. We dined on the patios, which was lovely!

Great Dining in a Country Location
Manor Tavern never disappoints. I have been there for lunch and dinner and eaten both in the diningroom and outdoors. The staff is always friendly, the food delicious and from local sources. It is a nice ride to get to the restaurant through some beautiful countryside. Highly recommend for that special lunch or dinner.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and meal were exceptional. Exceeded our expectations. Always a delightful dining experience.

I love everything
We enjoy the atmosphere of the fine restaurant, the host is darling and caring and the food is absolutely delicious !!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We often go out & for a variety of reasons often leave disappointed -- definitely not the case at the Manor Tavern. This pleaureable experience made our Anniversary rememorable! Dinner was absolutely PERFECT...starting from the choice warm bread and whipped butter, to the cocktails from the bar, to their Shrimp Toast and Angels on the Horseback appetizers, to the delectable entrees (delicious broiled crab cakes and succulent beef tenderloin) both seasoned and cooked to perfection, and the grand finale finish of homemade desserts and French press coffee. Service was outstanding. The staff was warm and inviting. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to dine! We look forward to another memorable evening at the Manor Taven, thanks!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
First of all friendly service. Pleasant atmosphere. Upscale but comfortably so. Food was outstanding. Three of us will attest to the deliciousness of the crab cakes, the rockfish, the pork chops. As a bonus they serve home-made Prigel's ice cream.
And if I had a restaurant I would definitely hire the hostess, the bartender, the waitress who served us.
And there is parking.

Great Dining in My Lady's Manor
We're lucky to have the Manor Tavern. It's a great spot for locals and always a nice cross-section of people. Delicious burgers, fresh salads from the restaurant's on-site garden, Angels on Horseback, and warmed mugs made by a local potter for French press coffee all make for a fun dining experience.

Manor Table Keeps Up With the Times
Manor Tavern has a great reputation as a county destination dining spot that can be relied upon to satisfy the needs of a widely disparate clientele. Since the last time I was there a few years ago, before the fire and the new ownership, the menu has been shortened and become more "foodie" oriented a la Woodbury Kitchen but has succeeded in retaining some of the old horse country feel that is appealing to me (as a consumer).. The service was excellent. We had a very attentive server who went out of her way to make sure that we were well taken care of. The food, while new to me, was well explained and met the description provided.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of character
I drove about an hour to get to this restaurants because their website talked about locally sourced meats and the place looked to have a lot of character. The website was correct! The restaurant is located in farm country and was a nice scenic drive. Also, the food and ambiance was authentic and lovely.

A co-worker from Poland was visiting Hunt Valley and he requested "Local Food" for lunch. The Manor Tavern was chosen because it was local and many of their ingredients are locally sourced. The 3 of us shared a Crab Dip appetizer. The dip was served perfectly seasoned, with toasted Pita wedges . The entrees ordered were the Berkshire Berger, Chicken Quinoa Soup with a salad and a bowl of Gumbo. Everything was delicious and served at the perfect temperatures. Our guest told us that he really enjoyed the Gumbo. It was spiced just the way he liked it. Our server, Jessica, was very welcoming and attentive.

Great meal at a fair price
Went to The Manor Tavern with two other lady friends on a Friday evening. We arrived around 5:30 with a reservation and were immediately seated. Waitress/server was very attentive and interactive. We stayed for three hours having dinner and drinks. The foods was very good and the cream of crab soup was superb. The shrimp salad sandwich was excellent though a bit light on the shrimp. My only negative was the way the management handled Happy Hour. You could get Happy Hour prices on drinks if you were at the bar but could not get the discounted prices at a table in the dining room (which was 15 feet away).
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than anticipated
We have been going to Manor Tavern for some time, but several years ago we stopped because there seemed to be a drop off in the quality of the service and the food. Saturday we thought to give them another try and were very pleasantly surprised. Both the food and service were very much improved, the manager was solicitous and wanted to be sure that we were having a good experience. The bar was very busy and the bartender was somewhat overwhelmed, but she tried very hard to accommodate everyone. All in all, we were very happy that we went back and will return in the future.

Met two old friends there for Sunday brunch and we had a great meal with excellent service. Would go back in a heartbeat

great place to meet with friends, nice atmosphere, menu has a lot of variety, great service. The new owners have done a great job. They grow most of the vegetables and herbs on site.

Crab cake was very good, and
Crab cake was very good, and I am picky. The Seafood Gumbo was too thick for my liking, consequently not as strong a flavor and a bowl filled me up - should have gotten the cup. The waitress was friendly and accomodating, She was able to sense what you needed. She was excellent at refilling water glasses. Service was very prompt, but not rushed. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

Great Friday Night Dinner!
We went for dinner on a Friday night. The daily specials all sounded so delicious that we were hard-pressed to choose which ones to have. Our server was attentive yet not hovering. Thanks!

Delicious food - The ribeye
Delicious food - The ribeye and porkchop were huge and so tender. Love the cream of crab soup. Service was great - did not feel rushed at all. Will definitely be back

This place was a great find. After looking on the Internet for places serving Thanksgiving day dinner the Manor tavern had the best reviews. They had a wonderful buffet with a wide variety of foods like traditional turkey with all the trimmings. There was roast beef, ham and crab cakes. I give this place 5 stars an then some. We will definitely be back!!!
