This review is for the lobster buffer. And that is all that it should be, just the lobster. First, service was horrible. Waited 20 minutes for a bottle of wine when there were only about 30 people in the place. Ok. I get it. Then during the buffet they were not even replacing silverware, etc. If you want to be...

Beautiful venue for a wedding. The ceremony was held outside, the only problem was it was a bit too dark and work have been nicer if it took place earlier in the day. The room for the cocktail hour was fantastic and the food delicious. The reception meal was outrageous, with a choice of Chateaubriand, parmesan encrusted chicken or red... More

I usually hate buffets, Not this one. It's called the Lobster Buffet but that isn't close to describing what you can have unlimited portions of. Skip all the standards go right for the Lobster,Prime Rib,Leg of Lamb and ,Carved Turkey Breast. After several trips ,work your way down to all the great side dishes.Save room for dessert there must be... More

The reception facilities were excellent. food was terrific. well prepared and well presented...EXCEPT: if you are going to have a carvery for openers during cocktail time, you HAVE to either cut bite-sized pieces only or provide knives. a small slab of meat is impossible to eat correctly. Service as very slow, especially between courses. VERY tasty food and very courteous... More

Whether it's my family, co workers or friends, the Manor is usually our "go to" place. You can never go wrong when you want the best food, ambiance, service and affordability. Parking is FREE, with lots of spaces, and valet parking is also available.The garden in summer is beautiful especially the fountain and gazebo, perfect for weddings.

We recently went to The Manor Lobster Buffet. We have been here many times before and I noticed a definite change in variety and quality of the food. We went on a Friday night and the cost was $67.95 per person before tax and gratuities. The choice of entrees was a definite letdown for the price. I felt like they... More

We have been coming to the Manor for the seafood buffet for about 20 years and have usually loved it. Last night was an exception. We came to celebrate my father's 85th birthday and we were so disappointed . First of all when we were seated, the host didn't pull out the heavy chair for my elderly mother. I think... More

Took my wife on a Saturday evening to the Manor for her 50th Birthday celebration. We had been to the Manor 3 other occasions and wanted it to be a special evening. The waiter staff was extremely attentive as I informed them of my wife's birthday. We were seated in front of the piano in the center of the room... More
