Memorial Day through Columbus Day the 1661 Inn serves its renowned full champagne buffet breakfast each morning. The breakfast buffet features an omelet station, homemade corned beef hash, eggs, pancakes or french toast and a whole lot more! During the quieter seasons, a smaller version of our buffet is available as well. For the 2016 summer season, we will be introducing a small appetizer menu, desserts and flaming coffees at the new 1661 bar starting at 5:00pm.

Always pleasant, the Inn is cosey in the Fall. The food is quite fine, but the lobster mashed potatoes are spectacular.

Went for the Buffet Breakfast. As we did not consume mimosa's which were included in the price it was expensive. The view is wicked nice but the food could be improved. The Blue Fish on the Buffett was not good.

We had brunch here twice last weekend and the food is quite nice and the porch has a beautiful view of the ocean. The porch is very attractive, good food and excellent service.

My husband and had a really enjoyable brunch on Sunday, September 27th. We were also here in September, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, as was the food! And non-stop champagne was definitely an added plus. The price is right at $22.00 for all you can eat and drink! Atmosphere, views, food and service A+

When making a dinner reservation, make sure to ask if they have a wedding rehearsal dinner the same night. We made the mistake of having dinner on Friday, September 25th, the same night there was a very large wedding party. They were extremely loud and drunk. We were hoping for a quiet, romantic, anniversary dinner, but that didn't happen. Our... More

My wife and I have been to the Manisses restaurant a couple of times and never been disappointed. Most recently stopped for dinner on a lovely Saturday night. Setting is quite unique with both inside and outside seating. Outside seating is amazing with the feel of dining in an outdoor garden with fountains and flowering plants. Even though you are...

Dinner was great, sophisticated and elegant, but after dinner be sure to head upstairs for a flaming coffee! The making of it is turned into a mini show..be sure to have your camera ready! Our host was great too...even leaving us a personalized note when she left at the end of her shift.
