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

You enter a well lit circular drive to the entrance of the restaurant and walk into an elegantly decorated waiting area before you are escorted to the dining room that is filled with flowers, ice carvings, and an array of sea food and meat carvings. The Friday Night Lobster Buffet is one of the best two and a half hours... More

The Manor offers two distinct dining options. One, the windowless Buffet where the ambience and noise is palpable, and the A La Carte Dining room that is most civilized and has windows that overlook the gardens and this evening, a Wedding. The atmosphere here is refined, if in fact, a bit traditional. The prices are not for the faint of... More

At the $49 price you can't beat it plus the rest of the buffet is outstanding. Will return whenever up this way.

Went for the lobster fest on a saturday night. 59 dollars is a fair price but unless you are a big eater not worth the tariff. Selection good .standout was lobster bisque. Décor.. gold leaf, chandeliers, heavy wood paneling . But if you are more than a 30 minute drive would probably not recommend it. Pretty grounds for outdoor weddings... More

The lobsters were just OK very small and were given out one at a time, oysters fair seemed like they were opened for a while before making it to the buffet,... More
