There were four in our party who were visiting the Manchester area so I made a reservation at Nippers because of the excellent ratings on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed since the food and service were both terrific. For starters two in our party enjoyed Caesar salads and I devoured my House salad which was comprised of very tasty... More

you won't be disappointed by the breakfast or the dinner options that feature fresh ingredients and great prices. portions are generous and meals are very tasty. Only a 30 second walk if your staying at the motel they own and operate. Great Find!

Dinner on the patio was so peaceful, gorgeous VT views, happy chickens pecking on the lawn. Great wine selection and good beers on tap. My husband said his was the "best steak he ever had" and I was pleased with... More

While hiking through Vermont we came across the motel stayed for 3 nights - which meant 3 breakfasts at Nippers and dinner. Every single meal was amazing. Hands down one of the best breakfasts both of us have ever had - and the dinner was equally amazing. They have the freshest ingredients and a great all encompassing menu; everything we... More

Nippers Cafe and Steakhouse is attached to the Stamford Motel, about a mile and a half north of the village of Manchester in Vermont. We were visiting the outlets on a Sunday afternoon (Labor Day weekend 2014)and had heard about this place from a friend and decided to drive north on Rt 7A to see about it. The motel exterior...

Service and facility were both very good, however food was mediocre at best. Had dinner here Labor Day weekend. Started with "Guinness Battered Shrimp" as an appetizer: tasted burnt and the server acknowledged that they were "bar food" purchased from an outside purveyor--basically admitted they weren't much good, but customers seem to like them. Not a ringing endorsement and a... More

Had an absolutely delicious dinner on Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Beautiful, comfortable and simply appointed dining room. Service was spot on. Food was superb...including fresh veggies in the salad from the gardens out back. There were many wonderful choices on the menu. I opted for filet au poivre and wasn't disappointed. It was served with fresh garden yellow squash... More

Great place to stay (Stamford motel). It turned out the best place we ate on our visit to Manchester was where we stayed. Fresh, friendly and tasty with a great atmosphere. Whether breakfast or dinner, inside or outside a wonderful meal would be available with scenic views.
