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

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

Was here with my husband for anniversary dinner a la carte dining on May 23. The ambiance was beautiful with nice piano music taking requests. Our surf and turf was delicious and waiters very attentive. Nice touch was the cake given to us for our anniversary celebration.

My husband and I went to The Manor to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was awful and the food mediocre for the price. We will not be returning and would not recommend this restaurant.

I haven't been here since my college days in the late 80s, it is still a gorgeous place to have a wedding, prom, or any special event. The ambiance was romantic and the landscape exquisitely breath taking

Came to the Manor for Mother's Day dinner buffet with a group of 12. For the amount they charge per person ( i think it was around $75 a head) without alcohol or anything - they should be ashamed. There was a small, poor selection of food and it wasn't even that good. One would literally have to eat the... More
