“outdoor patio dining”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Thank goodness for outside seating on balmy Florida days ! There are not too many places in the area where you can feel as if you are having lunch in someone's backyard patio. The atmosphere is comfortable and warm, and the patio is surrounded by greenery. In another outdoor section, on the rooftop, you can see the blue waters of the Intracoastal. The beautiful old mansion, itself, is a stately reminder of Old Florida. Try the patio, rather than some cold, air-conditioned , dark restaurant. The menu is varied , too. It's all about atmosphere.

“Scenic Melbourne”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I live in Melbourne. If someone visits me this is one of the must places to take them. The food and drink is special and interesting, and the experience of the Big Mansion is unique. A converted house of 100 years ago it now has several outside, covered patios and “The Tavern”, the indoor eating area featuring a 60-tap beer bar. A full deli, which you can get "to-go" if you want. And part of that is an extraordinary selection of wines and liquors for sale or sample at the small, but exquisite, "tasting bar". And then take the 27 steps up to check out “The Terrace”, the scenic outdoor rooftop deck with full views of the Indian River Lagoon, Melbourne Harbor and beyond to the beach/ocean. Surrounded by palm trees and ambiance you can pick open or covered tables or sit at the deck bar. No matter what you choose you are going to be exposed to a memory you will not forget. Have some time to enjoy the experience. Gary G.

“Delicious lunch at The Mansion”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

My wife and I had a delicious lunch at The Mansion Sunday!
We ate on the roof and the weather was grand .. just before the cold front hit... The rooftop portion of the restaurant has a nice view of Melbourne Harbor and watching the sailboats was fun. But the food was special.
We started with beers from their extensive beer menu... it was a tangerine thing... excellent.. then we split the crab cake appetizer (delicious) and shared two salads. Both salads were exceptional! We finished with coffee and hated to leave. We thouroghly enjoyed our visit and will eat there again soon. The owner, Beth, recognized us and was very cordial as always.

“Biergardenheaven”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

A MUST if you are in the area of Melbourne, FL. Great location with enough free parking space and over 73 (!) beers to choose from. It's like a german Biergarden in heaven. A lot of lite sandwiches are also on the menu, all for a fair price. Great 1A superb and friendly service, can only recommend to go, will do so myself, when again in the area.

“Food was good but took 40 mins to come out at lunch”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

40 mins for 3 sandwiches to come out at lunch, after asking about them 25 mins in is way too long. I wouldn't recommend the slaw.
