We regularly read trip advisor on recommendations for new places to try. I don't ordinarily write a review however our experience was so bad I felt compelled to. My first reaction was why this place was practically empty on a Friday night in Manchester. With 3 people sitting out side and 2 at the bar. The start of our evening... More

We sincerely apologize for the fact that you had a bad experience this past Friday night. We truly try to provide an exceptional meal and comfortable ambiance to all of our customers. You are correct in making the statement at the time you arrived we weren’t overly busy. You can’t really compare us to a downtown restaurant. We are located... More

This place is a little out of the center of town with a pleasant backdrop for outdoor dining and great food too!

Read the reviews so we decided to try it out. Didn't look like anything from the outside, and didn't look any better on the inside. I usually only review the places I like, but I had such a horrible experience here, I couldn't help but mention it. We waited forever to get drinks, forever to get food and it wasn't... More

I am sorry you had a miserable experience. First off I’m going to say tripadvisor and all of these review sites really stink. They stink for the simple reason because here I am standing in front of you naked and I mean naked and you can throw any nasty word you want at me or any other “mom & pop”... More

Delicious breakfast, interesting menu. Hannah's French toast and the the three little pigs omelet were excellent. Less crowded than places right in town.

Staying at the Stamford. Had dinner and it was good filet medallions 3 ways. Good meal and service. Had breakfast the next day and the menu is huge. Had traditional eggs Benedict but there were about 10 other choices. The menu was 4 pages. Highly recommend!

Don't visit Manchester without going to nippers for either breakfast or dinner! All of their breakfast items are delicious, but the pancake-French toast is soooo good! And the dinners are just as good! In the summer especially- great ambiance with sitting outside on the new patio. They have great local music too! Not to be missed!

My review covers my stay at the Motel as well, but I would add that the restaurant alone is worth a trip to Manchester VT. I would consider a trip to see what they do when the garden veggies are in and the like. Loved it!

We went this past weekend and were thrilled with our accommodations. The host Karen was really nice, her husband cooked soft shell crabs and both of us loved them. Afterwards we hung out at the fire with several other couples until 11pm. Lots of laughs and just a wonderful evening. We would have sat outside on the patio if it... More

We were staying at the motel next store, The Stamford, which is also owned and operated by the same people. We had breakfast at Nippers Cafe and it was amazing, my husband had their homemade corned beef hash (his favorite), with eggs, homemade potatoes that were out of this world, He loved Karen's Hash !
