I have been dining at The Manor Restaurant since I was a young boy travelling in from Brooklyn just to celebrate special occasions. The ambiance is very regal and glitzy, the grounds are beautiful for a walk after dinner in the gardens (with a photo opp in the gazebo), and the Dome is very nice for drinking and dancing post-meal....

This institution offering elegant catering for the most important celebratory events and a great restaurant is a true rare gem. The first time I drove by it I thought it was a small palace. The first time and every other time I stepped inside I was dazzled. It is beautifully decorated and beyond opulent. The ambience is overwhelming and the... More

I took my daughter and a few of her friends out to the Sea Food buffet at The Manor and I was disappointed. The steamed lobster was over done and tough. There was a seafood dish prepared in a cream sauce served in a shell and all I could taste was the sauce, not the seafood. The desserts were good,... More

Our friends and guests loved the food at our wedding: a HUGE buffet-style hors doeurves hour followed by a three-course dinner and cake. The Manor was very accommodating with our requests to substitute various foods in and out of their menu and gave us two really great staff members to be our day-of helpers. They had an indoor room ready... More

My husband and I enjoyed the lunch buffet and a walk on the grounds for an anniversary celbration. We were there 38 years ago on our first anniversary. We were not disappointed still as beautiful and delicious as ever.

I absolutely love the seafood buffet. all you can eat lobster tails, plus tons of other great stuff. At $55 a person, it's a steal. Very high level quality in the swankiest of mansions and palacial estates. make sure you walk around the building and around the grounds before or after your meal.

The Rotunda dining room offers at the same time class, quietness, great food. In addition, for wine connoisseurs, the wine list is really spectacular and contains some great good value older vintages gems. Out of state visitors only can be impressed by the general setting of the restaurant.
