We visit once or twice every year and always enjoy our meal. How can you not when you start with Lobster Bisque, move to Lobster apps and also have steamed Lobster tails!! Mix in Jumbo peeled shrimp(so much bigger than the AC buffets), three carving stations along with 10 chafing dishes and you could stop there. But wait, you would... More

Had a reservation for this past Saturday night - probably one of the busiest holiday dining nights at the Manor - when we arrived, the lobby was pretty empty and the Terrace Room also was only half full - the service is still good but the prices are ridiculous even if you consider it a special occasion place. My filet... More

We booked our daughter’s wedding for September 14, 2014 at the Manor. We met with the Catering Manager Roman At least 4 times before the Wedding date. Prior to booking the date we asked many questions regarding food, guests, alcohol and bars, and Bridal Attendant. When we booked the Contract as well as their menu and website advertise "Premium Open... More

Excellent environment, food and service. I had shelled lobster and my wife had filet mignon. Both were excellent. Extras at no charge included small cup of potato leak soup, sorbert on an ice bar, some kind of cone with sea food, carbonated/regular water from their own well, condiments after meal and great assortment of cheese sticks, rolls, etc.. Veggies came... More

We had a big group of 25 people the weekend before thanksgiving. We hosted the group and had a superb lobster buffet. We even enjoyed dancing at The Dome afterwards. It would have been a great night but the valet service was awful. When we asked for our car, it took them over 30 minutes to come back to us... More

My mother wanted to celebrate her 80th birthday at The Manor with 16 family and friends. Upon arrival we were advised that there was a 2 hour limit on our table for the Saturday night buffet. They weren’t kidding.... We barely sat down when they wanted drink orders and then immediately told us to head to the buffet. Waiters were... More

Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. Service is great, you feel like your at a fancy wedding. Nice to get dressed up. We went for our 24th wedding Anniversary. Loved it and will go again.

We thought this would be a very special night out, but the food had little flavor and a misbehaving two year old wandering through the buffet area during the whole dinner dashed those hopes. Perhaps the best food was the fried shrimp, but this was supposed to be a lobster buffet. The desserts were excellent, but we came for the... More

My wife and I dined at The Manor and enjoyed its lobster buffet. Made reservations on line. The morning of the reservation, I received a phone message asking me to confirm again. Thought that was odd, but ok. The lady then explained there is a 2-hour dining limit and wanted to confirm I knew the dress code. Again, odd, but... More

A+ dining experience. We were a group of 20+ family and friends gathering. The sitting accomodation for the buffet was spacious providing easy in and out of seats. Courteous staff attending the tables and stations. Beautiful location with valet parking. Warm ambience. Definitely worth the cost which "doesn't brake a bank" at all.
