First of all, We were disappointed with the overall appearance. Wine selection was good. Menu had a good variety of items. We ordered two steaks and two Pork Lions. The steaks were supposed to be Medium and Medium-Rare. Both came out well done and were sent back. The replacements were better. The pork was also over cooked but the two... More

Once again I had such a wonderful stay at the Stanford hotel. They have the best breakfast ever! Top of the line, fresh and cooked to perfection good. 20 times better than a random diner and for the same price, if not even more inexpensive!!!! Can't beat that. We have had dinner at all different places in Manchester and Nipper's... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and have always had a great time. We normally get the seared ahi tuna salad which comes over a large salad - always perfectly cooked. We also have tried the filet which is aways cooked to perfection (medium rare). The NY strip is another favorite and we always get the bourbon sauce -... More

Nippers is a small and very homey eatery. The service was attentive and efficient. Of the three meals we ordered, one was spectacular (seared Ahi Tuna), one average (scrod) and one disappointing (ribeye) as the quality of the cut was poor. I'd return, but probably focus on the simpler side of the menu - sandwiches and the like. Like all... More

Went here with spouse for dinner. The wait staff were pleasant enough....the decor is very average....one meal (seafood) was good...my sirloin steak was NOT good. I don't know if it was just that weeks' cut of beef but it was thin, over-cooked, fatty, bland...just not good at all. (I've had breakfast here and was very pleased.) So...dinner, I'd go elsewhere...

We just wanted someplace quick with good food on our last day in Manchester. The Manchester View recommended Nippers. Sure enough, we sat right down, had a great breakfast at a great price and we were on our way. I wish we knew about them sooner as we would have stopped at their steakhouse as well (next time)! Nice people... More

Delicious breakfast, great menu selection, fast friendly service, and a good value! The three-egg cheese omelet and banana bread french toast were soooo good!!!

I found Nippers on Trip Advisor looking for a restaurant to feed a large family, with grandkids who are fussy. Menu terrific and varied, and kids menu was perfect. Staff was extremely accommodating. The cost was reasonable compared to other upscale restaurants in the area. Menu can be viewed online. Well worth a visit.

We haven't been back to Vermont, one of our places to visit for a few years. We simply love The Manchester View Motel. The only small problem was finding a close/convenient restaurant especially for breakfast. This year the problem was solved when we drove next door To Nippers a delightfully decorated and delicious restaurant. Unfortunately did not visit for dinner... More

After a long drive from CT, my husband and I rewarded ourselves with a return visit to Nipper's Café. I had the grilled salmon dinner special. It was delectable, creole rubbed, grilled, and topped with a lemon dill caper sauce. A thinly sliced yellow squash onion sautee and rice pilaf accompanied the special. The service was friendly and efficient, the... More
