Good value for USD 55; very good buffet dinner

Based on some recommendation, we celebrated our anniversary dinner in the Manor. On Wednesdays, they feature a lobster buffet for USD 55. Upon arrival, one thing is clear, the atmosphere is really nice. They have a beautiful garden and The Manor itself presents itself in an excellent way. The... read more

The staff is amazing, the food is beyond delicious, and atmosphere is romantic. We had our wedding at The Manor and my words can't do the experience justice. Make sure you try the Lobster Bisque, I don't even like bisque and it was amazing!

Gardens are very romantic 7:30 dinning time was nice because you could go a little early and enjoy the gardens then after dinner see it all lit up. Food was some of the best I've ever had. So much to choose... More

Buffet or Menu choices that are very appetizing. Love the Seafood and Steaks. The atmospere is very pleasant and serving staff are friendly and professional. Family outing or Romantic dinner with your special person. Live entertainment on certain days with pianist. Reservations are good to have so as not to wait long.

We went to the Manor the Friday before Father's Day. We had not been there for many years since we moved away, but it is just as elegant as we remembered. We went to the Lobster Buffet and was not disappointed. Along with the delicious lobster tails and accompanying clarified warm butter, there were so many choices. Everything was displayed... More

This time at the lobster buffet it was not as good as the first time. The lobsters were small, both tail and claws and not as succulent. The roast beef was horrible, but the lamb was very good. This time due to the lobsters not meeting my expectations I had to look around for other buffet items. The service was... More

Went for the Friday night Lobster buffet for my Birthday. A beautiful location with very nice service. We dressed business casual as requested by the website and we're glad we did. It's a nice joint. The food didn't disappoint. Even though this is a buffet, this isn't the Golden Corral. Dress nicely and enjoy the fact that places like this... More

This is one of the to ten places in New Jersey for eating spectacularly. The place is gorgeous, and they keep the grounds beautifully. We were in the Bow and Arrow Manor for the buffet. The food is exquisite and continuously replenished. The Lobster is done to perfection and there is only a time limitation, some 2 hours. But, don't... More
