I made reservations weeks in advance & they over booked, even though I confirmed my reservations the day before. We showed up 30 mins early & had no issue going downstairs for a drink but we waited for our table to be ready for an hour & half past reservations. The manager to compensate us some appetizers which was very nice. Only suggestions would be to be mindful of people who confirm their reservations the day before.

Everything we had was delicious from the artichoke dip, seafood linguini, bang-bang shrimp, and the bishop's chicken, and let's not forget the great cocktails! Honorable mention the lobster roll is to die for!!!

We celebrated my daughter's 28th birthday here. The restaurant is in a great location (right off South Blvd) with ample parking. Service from the hostess to the waitstaff is excellent. Arden was our server and she was phenomenal... attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious. Happy Hour appetizers were plentiful and only $5. They fry their pita chips...need I say more? Craft cocktails were refreshing and adult size. I will definitely be returning to enjoy the spacious patio.

Our server Weezy was the best cap fun and personable. The food was amazing. The deviled eggs with the fried jalapeño was a table favorite. The cinnamon roll was warm and gooey and perfect. Different take on biscuits and gravy I was worried about but it was equally spectacular. A great brunch

This was our first visit for a date night. The atmosphere was energetic and a bit on the loud side but did not distract us. The food was excellent and the serve was swift but not rushed.

Walking up it was already a mad house, the singular host was overwhelmed and under supported. Rushing orders to the kitchen, the phone rang off the hook, and parties waiting to be seated by them. Finally when we were seated for our reservation we waited another 20 minutes with glasses if water and then left.

Went for Sunday brunch with family. Good service, waitress promptly replaced soggy fries with fresh ones. Food was ok overall. I ordered the deviled eggs. It would be nice if it weren’t so dark in the main dining area in the daytime. Next time will specifically request the bar area for brunch.

My wife had been telling me about them and so we went for her Birthday. They were very accommodating and food was delicious. I got the Fish and Chips and my wife got the Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp. The Fish and Chips were good - but the Bang Bang was phenomenal!

Good, solid, casual dishes with flair. We had the killer combo of the generous charcuterie board appetizer and split the bang-bang chicken and shrimp dinner. 4 kinds of meats, 3 cheeses, plus crostini and jellies. Bang-bang chicken and shrimp was just the right kind of spicy and had a mayo sauce that completely satiated our appetites. Can't wait to visit again.

We went in fairly quickly however, we waited 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. We had to flag down a waiter to ask him if someone could take our drink order. He then ran around for a while and finally a woman took our order. It is obvious they were extremely short staffed and it showed GREATLY! Our waitress didn’t check on us once we received our food however she was nice. She brought us water but then didn’t ask if we wanted anything else. The food was decent. My sister’s salad was wilted. My husbands bread on his lobster roll was soggy. My lobster roll was good though. Overall it was sub par at best. Very disappointed.

This place is really cool inside and out and the server was kind BUT the food was sub-par. We ordered the veggie burger - they were out of those, then ordered the black bean burger -was dry as as a desert. Asked for mustard - they were out of that. They were also out of one of the 3 dessert items on the menu. From our table you could see into the kitchen & we saw one of the line cooks/preps eating food - no mask. This place is either new and needs to figure it out fast or they about to go under

My wife and I had dinner reservations for a Saturday night at 7. By 8, this placing was hopping. The food and drinks were very good and fairly priced. The energy level was great. While our service was good, it was far from great. I would definitely return and recommend Manchester 1812.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise since I didn't know what to expect. The service was great. The ambiance was kind of cool and sort of intimate. It's not a fine dining restaurant but the food portions are large and very good, especially the deviled eggs. The tempura jalapeno & bacon added to the eggs really made for a nice appetizer. I expect to be back.
