“Good food, good service, small portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

We went to The Mansion to celebrate Mothers Day. A nice job was done on the renovation. We ate on the roof with a view of the water. The service was friendly and reasonably attentive. The food was tasty. The menu seemed much more suited to lunch than to dinner, with a lot of salads, sandwiches, burgers, etc. but just a small number of entrees. The portions were a bit small for the price. I had a Mother's Day special consisting of shrimp and scallops. For $20, I got three shrimp and three scallops, a small rectangle of risotto with some sauted spinach piled on it. It was excellent but overpriced. My wife ordered a salad, which she loved and a side of andouille cheddar mashed potatoes. The potatoes were good, but cool by the time they were delivered to our table. The Mansion featured an outstanding selection of interesting beers, all on tap. I think I would go back for lunch. The outside seating is wonderful. But, I would prefer a menu with more of a diner selection.

“Gotta bring those standards up!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

I hate to see a good location go to waste. It's a cute idea and it could work but just needs a little tweaking. The menu needs to be expanded or split into night time and lunch menus. People love choices, not to many but just enough to be interesting. Next, the service is slow! We have been there 5 times and everytime drink refills and food delivery took a while. Good atmosphere though, love the top deck. I hope they make some changes, it does have potential.

“Outside seating and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Got to sit outside with a view of the water form the roof. You can select wine from their wine shop and for a $10 corkage fee have it brought to your table.We picked two bottles of wine before moving upstairs and outside. The food was a great price value, almost scarily cheap. Most of us had the fish tacos with black beans and cabbage slaw for $10. Not gourmet but good basic food made right. Would definitely go back.

“Incredible place for any day/any time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Wow is this place incredible! The menu is small, but everything on the menu is amazing!!! Not to mention, reasonably priced - from $9 deli sandwiches to $15 entrees. I've had almost everything on the menu, but I am partial to the Turkey, Bacon, Avocado Melt. The fish tacos are wonderful and the side salad with rice and beans it is served with make for the perfect meal.

Along with the amazing food they have about 60 beers on Tap! They also serve liquor and I highly recommend a Mojito made personally by Bill!

There is seating inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs! Inside seating is small, but great for those who can't handle the outdoors. I highly recommend outside - lunch downstairs and dinner/drinks upstairs on the rooftop. If you do sit on the rooftop at night I recommend bringing a sweater. The wind can make for a chilly night sometimes.

If you ever go for lunch, try to go at 11:30 or 1:30. The parking is a pain, but I do know it is something they are working on.

Venture inside to see their full service deli, beer, liquor, and wine cellars! This place has it all!
