I made the reservation with open table ( all good ) I called the morning of to confirm as we had a snow storm ( nobody answered the phone till after 10:00 our reservation was for 12:30 ) to be sure they were open ( we live over 50 miles away ) the lady who answered was quick to remind me of the "dress policy" and that a minimum of "18% gratuity" was customary. Upon arrival we were seated (4) nice corner of the restaurant and was greeted by our "two waiters" all good up to this point... after the disappointment of the quality of the food and the lousy service topped with people in the restaurant wearing jeans and "non business " casual attire, I felt embarrassed to have brought my friends to a overrated under delivered establishment.
I will not be going back any time soon ....
We came to celebrate 2 birthdays. It was our first time, and we were quite impressed by the service and the spectacular buffet. We were wowed by the large variety. The fish courses were spectacular and the best I have had. The filet and puréed potatoes deserved 2nd helpings. My daughter raves about the roast beef. And the pasta station offered many delicious selections. Our waiter was exceptional. I have not had service that impressive in years. We will be back in May for next celebration.
Celebrating a birthday
What a horribly overpriced buffet. The service was horrible. In the past, there was a dress code=men had to wear jackets. When I made the reservation, it clearly stated business casual attire required. I could not count the number of menu with ripped blue jeans. So sad. They should never have been allowed into the dining room
I’ve been coming here for years and always felt like it was a classy place. This time though I felt differently. The waiter, who was awesome (I ate at the buffet), he thanked us for dressing up. I didn’t understand until a little later a guy walks in with a baseball cap turned to the side jeans and untucked shirt. I was there in a tux (hey who doesn’t like to get dressed up from time to time). So the ambience was classy, the food was great, the wait staff were wonderful. But the clientele... it appears it’s a bit as the say where I come from “ghetto.” In my opinion The Manor should raise their dress code and turn away the riffraff who come in street clothes.
The Manor has a lobster buffet that is second to none. If you love lobster, as I do, you can eat lobster to your heart's content, and return for more as often as you like. You can start with jumbo shrimp as an appetizer that has already been peeled and eat as much as you want. The soups, particularly the cream of mushroom soup, are excellent. There is a pasta bar, and other entrees which are quite good. The dessert bar is wonderful. The creme brulee and flan were particularly good. The service is excellent - the waiters are friendly and attentive. The price, at $70 per person plus drinks, tax, and tip, was reasonable considering the value.
Great time for my moms 80th birthday. Staff was excellent and went out if their way to make it a great time for us all. Nice variety of food which was delicious and nice wine selection too.
We saw a waiter picking his nose. the food was sitting out for a few hours
Buffet was excellent...service was exceptional!
Only negative was items on the buffet were not clearly marked with ingredients. Suggestion would be list ingredients or if items are Gluten Free.
The ordoves were great and the lobster was good but why give the whole body when all your eating is the tale and the other dishes are always the same nothing special desert was great as always been there many times and it has gone down hill over the years
This is always a first choice when it comes to having a celebration for Anniversaries, Birthdays, Special Events, Milestones, etc. The service is fantastic!! We had great waiters especially David. Very attentive, had great suggestions, was informative and very friendly. The place is very clean. The staff were extremely hospitable - even if they were not serving you. You will feel special from the time that you are greeted until your departure. Definitely a place to put on your list!!
Soup was cold. Sushi awful and oysters were just awful. I could go on and on . I do not eat meat so I can not comment on that.
Its not my wife and I first time eating at the manor. All of the times we went to eat there we were treated outstanding and the food is always great!
