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.

Took my Mom to the Manor in West Orange, NJ for her 77th Birthday and we had the most amazing time. We dined a la carte. The Caribbean Mango martinis were great! The avocado and crab appetizers were so delicious. Our servers were all so attentive and made our celebration all the more special. We had the snapper for the... More

I ate at the Manor in August and had a very disappointing experience. If you look further down, you will see other negative reviews as well. What you will also see is postings after those negative reviews done in an effort to push them off the page. These must be done by employees of the restaurant. Look at the ones... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I had my Junior Prom there and also my wedding. The food is outstanding, love the atmosphere and the people who work there. I especially like the Seafood Buffet. Just a great place.

My job associates and family members were completely Satisfied as the menu and service was excellent as always. The menu does not have any surprises as they have all ways been excellent no matter when we come to enjoy their food. The endless sea food and deserts are to die for.

I had thought the Manor was this magnificent place with close attention to details. I was disappointed. We were there recently and found The Manor's not up to the standards we had once experienced. Sorry Manor.....hopefully management will take heed and change things.

Two weeks ago I went to the Sunday afternoon buffet with my wife and my mother to celebrate a promotion at work. The atmosphere was off as the music and noise from an adjacent party could be heard clearly in the dining room. The food was acceptable but not exceptional and certainly not worth the price. What was more disappointing... More

This was our third trip to the Lobster Buffet in the past two years. If anything, it has gotten better. Maybe it was the Lobster Bisque that was not offered that past two winters? The soup was wonderful!! We also had a cup of their famous Mushroom Soup. It came in second place to the Lobster Bisque, and that's saying... More
