My wife and I frequented The Mansion Sunday Feb 9th. I knew of the restaurant having explored it on it's web site. I also read reviews from Trip Advisor. So we impulsively set out to take a ride from Kissimmee, Fl. to Melbourne, Fl.. When we found the establishment we had three choices of dining areas. First was inside on the ground floor, second was outside on the ground floor, third was on an outdoor deck with beautiful views of the intracoastal waterway and the bridge on 192 leading to Melbourne Beach two stories up. When we reached the deck there wasn't anyone to seat us so we seated ourselves. A server saw us and said he would be with us shortly. Well it took a pretty good while and another server brought us menus and silver ware taking our drink orders.No exaggeration, a good fifteen minutes elapsed and no sign of our server. I see the original server and tell him about our missing drinks. They arrived in less than five minutes. So it took twenty minutes for that to happen. While our server dropped off the drinks iced tea for one, no sweeteners available until we asked for them also no salt and pepper until we asked for them as well. I ordered our food choices thinking that could take another twenty or so minutes. We ordered an antipasto for the app, my wife selected the steak fajita sandwich, and I the roast beef melt. The app arrived in less than ten minutes followed by the entree sandwiches. The antipasto was good, it included a few slices of genoa salami, sopresatta, calamata, stuffed green olives a few small pieces of mozzeralla & provolone cheeses, an olive salad and two pickeled cauliflower pieces. The price was twelve dollars. The steak fajita sandwich was very good saith my wife and the roast beef melt was good also. Both sandwich halves came home with us, so the portions were very ample. I ordered a Rum Runner on the rocks. It was probably the worst I ever had. It lacked the flavor of the liquors involved. I guess I threw the bartender a curve when I asked for rocks instead of the pre mixed frozen type. I don't know why bartenders have a tough time with drinks that include more than two liquors, it's like trying to find a Long Island Iced Tea made properly,( the secret is the right amount of cola that allows it to taste like tea, former country club bartender ) Overall we will go back for the view was spectacular especially with the blue skies that almost seamed foreign after the past few weeks here in sunny Florida. The food was a good reason as well.
