There's no better way to say "Thank You" to Mom than with a special brunch at Saint Jacques at the Burke Manor Inn. A special Prix Fixe menu has been artfully crafted by Chef Lil for this wonderful occasion and will be served from 11am-3pm.

This place is an absolute gem. The food quality, presentation and service are all top tier. When you eat here, you feel more like a guest in a good friend's home than a customer in a restaurant.
Awesome food; excellent service!
Excellent food, and excellent service. A lovely evening all around.
As usual, the food, staff and environment were amazing! Nothing can describe this establishment, but it truly is perfection! Love every time our group of family and friends meets here! Every meal is a new memory and full of fun! The staff is superb!
Visited for a Birthday Special Occasion as Restaurant is about :45 min away...... Hidden Gem, The very Best Restaurant in the Triad.
Will definitely make the drive/visit often!
So glad we finally found fine dining nearby. Best dinner since we moved to the area over a year ago.
Very enjoyable evening. Food was very good. Was difficult to rate the quality of the food. Rated it a 4, but should have been a 4.5. My salmon was outstanding, but my wife's duck, although very good, was not as good as she's had a several other restaurant's. Thus, the sub 5 rating. Having said that the restaurant is to be highly recommended.
We had a lovely evening, the food was spectacular and our experience was topped off with a meet and greet with Chef Lil. We could not recommend this place more!
Always a pleasure and delight. Worth the price and drive absolutely every time.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Definitely will go back.
This is a truly wonderful establishment which takes the time and care to ensure all guests feel special and have an outstanding experience! The food is the best around, the staff is so thoughtful and makes each person feel they are the only person there! Each and every time my family and I come to Saint Jacques at the Burke Manor Inn we leave full of joy and delicious food as well! Everything about this place is wonderful and anyone should treat themselves enough to go and enjoy! Gibsonville is truly blessed to have this in their town and the staff are beyond superb!
Everyone was friendly and professional. The food was well prepared and tasty. My husband is allergic to lobster but wanted the mac and cheese that was made with lobster that was accompanying the lamb. The chef was kind enough to make him the macaroni with clams (my husband's request) and even made a different cheese sauce to go with the clams! The menu items are pricey but wonderful for special occasions. A definite "go-to".
This was our first visit to your restaurant. We saw the restaurant review in our local Greensboro paper in the Fall 2017. We said that someday we might go there for a special occasion. We had recently moved to the Greensboro area from New York ( 1 hour from NYC). I had your salmon dish and my husband had your lamb puff pastry special. From the Rosemary fresh breads to the chocolate puff ball dessert, we loved our culinary experience. Plus your waitress Megan made our evening extra special. We very much enjoyed talking to her. Come to find out she was from Vermont and we both went to college near her hometown in Vt. We will return very soon. Maybe March 11 for your Irish dinner? And we will request Megan to be our waitress.
Thanks a Again for our wonderful evening at your lovely Burke Manor.

Had dinner with my wife and our friend. It was his first with French cuisine. The menu was new but fabulous. One word sums it up... wow. It was an experience to be savored.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating a birthday! Everything was delightful: the food, the wine, the service, the company! It was a very enjoyable and memorable night.
The tomatoe pie appetizer was amazing, so were the esgargots. The foie gras not so much, just too sweet for me. The short ribs were also excellent and we enjoyed the wine. All in all, we will definitely return
An enchanting evening...the meal was prepared and presented to perfection. Excellent wine selection. Beautiful surroundings. A must!
I can sum it up in one word.... Phenomenal! They treat you like family, and the food is beyond good, it is FANTASTIC! Very creative, without going overboard.
excellent service and French cuisine. Also a very good wine list.
Visiting our daughter for Family Weekend at nearby Elon University, we were delighted with the chance to indulge her and a friend with the elegance and relaxed ambiance of this unique find in Gibsonville. Highlights: the gracious welcome of our young server, putting all of us at ease; the flawless service that made it all look simple; the fresh and creative food that celebrated both the season and the location; and the pleasure of the unexpected in finding a gem like this.
A fabulous tomato tarte with subtle herbs wrapped in puff pastry, savory salad alongside succulent salmon, cloud like homemade gnocchi with two sauces to choose from, pear and Gorgonzola fighting a palate dance — the menu was a delight to explore, and the wine list easily complimented the options.
Wonderful food with very imaginative preparation. Thoughtful and attentive service. We ate outside on their lovely covered porch on a warm evening. Great place!!
I love the location in an old home. The food is mostly very traditional French; but, there are creative touches - and every dish I had was very well-prepared and beautifully presented. I enjoyed the wide selection of wines, which range in price from affordable to expensive.
Celebrated a birthday, had the scallop appetizer, my spouse had the chicken with spicy sausage, I had the salmon, the meal was quite rich and definitely French, I asked to take home more than 1/2 the salmon, and the waiter returned quickly due to the chef was worried I did not like the dish, I later realized this was equivalent to a insult, but at age 62 and needing to cut back when I could, I just saw myself eating the other portion for lunch the next day, which I did! No insult intended! The restaurant is beautiful, the staff very attentive, yes it's an expensive meal but worth it! Plus, we shared the dark, rich chocolate dessert, faboulous!
Impeccable service and food! Fresh ingredients and tasty!
Our third visit to the Burke Manor Inn was a little disappointing. The food was not up to our expectations. The chicken roulade had a strange taste and one piece of fish in the seafood vol a vent tasted fishy. However, this is a wonderful restaurant for a quiet dinner, and the service was superb. If you like bittersweet chocolate desserts, you will be very pleased.
Having dined at multiple restaurants in Greensboro, Raleigh and Durham, this remains my favorite restaurant. The food, ambience and service is top-notch.
The staff was excellent. The food was rich and marvellous. I would eat the entire meal again... immediately after. The last bite was as good as the first. A must visit!
Our 43rd anniversary was Fantabulous! It was enjoyed throughout by the four of us! Great atmosphere for a celebration, but also just for a great dining experience! Very attentive staff! Definitely will go back ourselves and highly recommend to others!🤗
Fabulous experience. Small town hotel with big city product
The food is superb! Kenny and the staff are amazing. My favorite place to eat.
I brought my daughter here when she came to visit from out of state. She said it was hands down the best meal she has ever had.
Wonderful French cuisine in a beautiful bed and breakfast in the town of Gibsonville, NC. The special Mother's Day brunch was delightful and elegant with fresh roses on the table. Food was delicious as always.
Went for Mother's Day; had a lovely brunch on a charming old style rambling porch. Food and service both excellent. I felt badly for our server; the pollen was giving her fits, but her co-workers backed her up nicely. Only one not-so-positive-after dessert coffee was lukewarm; strange ending to otherwise picture perfect dining experience. Will definitely go again.
Excellent food and service, as always. Enjoyable 75th birthday.
This was a good value. We had a delicious meal and great service. The atmosphere was relaxing. I had the nightly special, flounder, and my husband had veal, both were a good choice. We will return.
Just the best food we have ever experienced. Great French restaurant and good for a special occasion
The overall experience was beyond expectations. It's set in what appears to have been the parlor and dining rooms of a large and stately old home in Gibsonville. Very comfortable. Like being a guest in someone's home. The food is authentically French and nearly impeccable quality. If you ever dined at the top-rated St. Jacques in Raleigh, while this same chef, along with his wife, owed and operated it, you'll know just how good it is. The service and hospitality substantively enhanced the experience. As a suggestion, if you like French Onion soup, you'll be hard pressed to find one that's better prepared.
We had a wonderful. Wonderful celebration. Food excellent. A bit pricey
We had a lovely meal at St. Jacques at the Burke Manor this past weekend. The food was excellent from the gnocchi with chorizo appetizer, the salmon en croute and filet mignon main dishes, and the chocolate and cherry desserts. All were quite good. The highlight may have been the exceptionally well curated French wine menu - really interesting and reasonable offerings that paired very well with the food. The owners and staff were attentive, accommodating and friendly without interfering with the flow of the meal. They really went out of their way to make sure we were happy and it was much appreciated. I also appreciated the attention to detail - napkins to match our outfits so as to avoid lint, no clearing of empty plates until both parties were finished, etc. Since Bon Soiree and Four Square closed in Chapel Hill and Durham there are fewer and fewer options for a formal but not stuffy meal out, and I very much appreciate a focus on etiquette and the overall experience. The setting is very elegant as well in a 100+ year old house that is subtly yet beautifully decorated. We are looking forward to coming back to try Easter brunch on the porch.
We enjoyed a 4-top with good friends and found our first visit to Saint Jacques at the Burke Manor Inn a delight! Will return and introduce to other friends. The soupe a L'mignon Gratin joined other memorable offerings I have enjoyed in Aix Les Bains and the French Laundry. Another starter was a signature dish that everyone wished they would have gotten, their Burke Manor Tomato Pie. Their Old World Warm Goat Cheese Salad was very good and visually pleasing. Two of our guests enjoyed the Salmon en Croûte. I enjoyed an offering that was over the top with flavor . . . their Chicken and Spicy Sausage Roulade. Finished with fresh-brewed coffee and excellent Crème Brûlée and delightful Cherry Clafoutis that was a first for my wife. I must admit, they offered a wonderful surprise as I learned they had a couple of homemake ice cream and it was the BEST Rum Raisin I have ever enjoyed in 67-years!
Saint Jacques is an easy 30-minute drive from Greensboro. For the Greensboro natives, their history has a linking to the Cone Family! The home that is now The Burke Manor Inn, a historic North Carolina bed and breakfast, has been meticulously restored to its original 1906 grandeur as designed by the Cone family and later enhanced by the Burkes. Originally owned and built on the 303 Burke Street site by Caesar Cone, a textile magnate (Cone Mills), the Gibsonville, NC home was sold to J.W. Burke in 1911.
