Just attended a wedding there and was shocked at how bad the service was. Plenty of staff standing around doing nothing. Served 2 people at a table of 10 and we waited another 20 minutes if not longer for rest to be served. Uneaten soup sat for 40 minutes with no one clearing the table, kind of just standing around...

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

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
