I have been to The Manor buffet several times as I have always had a great experience. It is an elegant buffet style of dining with premium fares like Beef Wellington, steamed whole lobsters, prime rib. Be prepared to shell out some serious $$$ but it is worth it. If you are planning for nice date but wants a buffet... More

We attended the week before Christmas.The food and service was great. I wish they had crab legs but lets face it everyone was there for the lobster. All the food was great. i wish they had more space between tables. They tried to pack in too many at one time. For that price the coffee and soda should have been... More

We attended a Christmas week buffet. It was elegant and plentiful. Whatever your cravings it was displayed. From soups, antipasto, macaroni, sushi and meat carvings and delicious desserts. My granddaughters (young ladies) loved it. We certainly will return. Bathrooms were attended by a housekeeper and kept clean. The grounds are well kept up with beautiful scenery.

We had Christmas brunch here, and it was wonderful. The buffet was great, a wide variety, and all the food was fresh, and tasty, well presented. Service was professional, friendly, and efficient. The atmosphere was regal, old world, an much enjoyed. Highly recommend. Will return.

Widely known for it's outstanding lobster buffet ($72.95) this 60 year old restaurant is also a premier catering facility & A la Carte dining establishment. Well worth the cost

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
