Unique and memorable

The mansion is a unique dining destination. We sat on the roof top overlooking the street below and some of the bay. We had a great lunch and plenty of drink options as well. If you go, you have to visit the shops downstairs, incredible!

Nothing special although this was told to us "as the place to go". I would not return. The food was just OK (cold), the service was less than OK (as we were doing the waitress a favor" for being there. So we decided just to have 3-4 appetizers and left.

I just returned from lunch at the Mansion! Wow! The Blue Crab Claws are delicious. No work and wonderful finger food. The flavor is great and the plate is overflowing with these little nuggets of pure crab delight. This dish is on the appetizer list but is a great entree too because of the large number of claws you receive.... More

Beautiful place which a group of friends and I like to visit. The view upstairs is great and the service is always good. The food however, once full of flavor has become very bland. Most of us had dinner entrees including the specials. It literally seemed as though the chef forgot the salt in every single dish that was served.... More

My son and I have been trying restaurants near older section of Melbourne, FL and we decided to give The Mansion a try. The staff is incredibly friendly and there's a great atmosphere and ambiance. We were able to eat up on the roof with an amazing view of the Indian River. We started with the pretzel stick and beer... More

I have tasted some wonderful beers Funky Buddha/Dogfish, but the 5 course dinner was out of this world. I could and would kick the plate if it wasn't for the other 20 or so people. The young lady that owns the place did a fabulous job at putting it together. The Chef and staff were outstanding. Hope she does it... More

Had dinner inside due to a little rain. The food was great and the beer selection fantastic. It was a bit loud inside, The outside would have been better if the weather would have cooperated. I went to see the upstairs bar and it looked fantastic, if the weather is better next time that is what we'll ask for.

we truly enjoyed our view from above while eating and drinking at the Mansion Definately do not go for a late night as they close at 11 and do not go to the Mansion for great service You won't get fast service from the upstairs bar! Takes a very long time for services to bring drinks to the table and... More

I had the fish tacos, and they were good. Prices seem a little high here, but I surmise that's because of their downtown & near the water location.

We were having a problem trying to find a decent place with affordable prices to take our family of 9 while staying at the beach. Most places were more like cafes or lunch places, or very expensive. We found this looking through Trip Advisor and Yelp. Luckily we were able to get a reservation for 9 at 4:00 for a... More
