We just went out for the last time since their closing and I see why. All the waitors/waitresses had all their focus on another table, I’m guessing someone they used to work with. Our waitress came to check up on us once, by then we were ready for the check. We only saw her when taking our orders and bringing the food. Our appetizer came out at the same time as our food, which we could’ve done without if we knew that. All of our food was warm, but not hot like fresh food is usually. I could see that other tables were feeling the same as us. I’m glad they are closing because I definitely wouldn’t have came back after this experience.

We made a reservation days in advance and they told us our table was still occupied. We took an alternate seat and the server took 20 mins to get to us. We left.

My friends and I chose The Manchester planning to bless our server and had no clue it was closing the next day. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and were looking forward to coming back. Our server, Harold, was AWESOME! Sad to hear it's closing but glad we had an opportunity to experience it!

We were in the plastic-enclosed outside area. I had originally requested outside seating through OD, but then called the restaurant however when we arrived we were seated outside. It was a warm rainy night so it did feel damp, but it was still ok.
The food was delicious & arrived in a timely manner. Our server was very sweet, knowledgeable & accurate. She must have had lots of tables because she didn’t check back much, but that was ok. It was very very noisy & hard to hear, especially one super obnoxiously loud person at the next table. Thank goodness, she eventually left.
Overall, a very good experience.

Enjoyed a late lunch at the Manchester 1812. It was a quieter time so the bar was more lively to eat in, but more casual. Food was excellent and our waitress was attentive

Apparently they’re going out of business soon and I’m not surprised. I get that everyone’s understaffed but when the server spends his time chatting up a couple of girls at the bar rather than getting another round of drinks for our four top (probably could have been two rounds) that’s lack of attention not lack of staff.

Our waiter basically ignored us. It took forever to get refill of water and we were ready to order for 15 minutes before he finally returned. He kept socializing at another table - the restaurant was not very busy at all, he was just inattentive.

Overall experience was good, we went earlier on a Saturday at 5:00 so it wasn’t too crowded yet. Parking lot had plenty of space when we arrived but was full by 7pm when we left. Service was a little lacking, we had to ask for refills on our drinks, and we honestly didn’t see our server that much, but the staff that did come by our table helped out with anything we asked for like water, etc. I know places are short staffed and what not so I’m not going to hold it against them, service has kind of been hit or miss no matter where u go now a days. Food was good, and staff was nice so I would definitely visit again. They have a nice selfie wall set up right when u walk in with a light ring, so definitely cool points for that!

Overall I had a really good time the restaurant is super cute especially for a girls night out my only issue was my salmon was undercooked like really undercooked. But the waiter ultimately made it right so I went with four stars. 😊

This was our first time at this establishment. The restaurant appeared to be at 20% capacity. It took 15 minutes to get a drink each time. The food was average. One dish needed to be sent back because it had things on it we requested not to be on it Rib-eye was below average.

We visited Manchester several times in the past so there was no need to read the reviews, so I thought. Apparently, the service is awful & our experience was no exception. We experienced the 20+ min waiter for a waitress. We asked the hostess about a waiter & she explained that someone would be right with us. Another 10 mins & we decided to leave but not until I spoke with the manager. Chris, I think is his name assured is that a waitress would be with us less than 30 seconds. When she decided to Grace us with her perseverance she immediately began to explain that she had other tables… BUT she found time to take the order of ppl that came in AFTER US! I explained that a simple “I will be with you shortly” would have sufficed. She went into self pity victim mode. Whining that she’s not good enough to wait on us etc. Finally, another waitress came to wait on us & service & food was okay.

I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THE Manchester!

The outside area had no heaters. It was cold but we didn't mind. We waited outside for 10 min for our server and no one showed up. We left. When we went inside the servers were just standing around. We normally love this place.

This was a fabulous spot for ladies brunch. We can get super loud and we appreciate an outdoor patio that can accommodate an excitable crowd. So very glad to have found this space. Our server was very professional, patient, and competent. We plan on this being out new monthly brunch meet up.
