“Poor Service at the Outlet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Although the product is good, the people were not helpful at all and bordered on rude when we asked a question. I was definitely disappointed.

“Fun to see but EXPENSIVE!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

It was neat to see where Orvis is made and the store was beautiful. Even outside at the 'sidewalk sale' the prices were out of control. My husband bought some flies for fishing and they weren't so bad but everything else was ridiculous. The staff, I have to say, was very helpful.

“Feed the fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Although it's a little pricey a trip to MAnchester has to include a visit to the Orvis Flagship Store. One gets to experience how the "other half lives" . The merchandice is all top quality but the best part is feeding the scores of trout they have stocked in the ponds. 25 cents buys pellets that can be fed to the most attractive trout (trout real fishermen dream of) in the world. They will if tested eat right out of your hands.

“Average Prices on Orvis Outlet Merchandise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Although prices indicated they were half off - the prices were average compared to sales on Orvis Merchandise online and the selection was a bit limited.

“The Disney World of Manchester, VT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The highlight of the Orvis flagship store is the indoor-outdoor trout pond. You can feed the fish or take a fly-fishing lesson there. Prices are high but refrain from spending until you get to the outlet store just up the street. Check out the merchandise at the flagship store though--lots of awesome products, way beyond the fly-fishing roots of the company.
