A permanent fixture in the area, this place has been featured on TV as well as earning a great reputation for good food and reasonable prices. Although it's an essentially Irish Pub the menu options are more robust and very tasty.
I've never been able to get past the burger selections they have because they are huge as savory - try the triple Double if offered - then go to the gym.
Lively at night and weekends and parking is sometimes difficult, it's worth the effort especially in the warm season when their delightful rear outdoor seating area is open.
Clientele and staff are friendly and the atmosphere is casual. Always a great place to go in the area.

We chose to celebrate a special brithday at Highlawn and now regret our choice. Having eaten here over the years we looked forward to sharing lunch with loved ones enjoying what is an undeniably spectacular setting and view of NYC. But, the food today fell so far short of acceptable that not only are we embarassed for inviting our guests here but are saddened that this day was wasted at Highlawn Pavilion. Perhaps the place is irrelevant now, past its prime, and out of touch. My choice of entree was served completely undercooked, I was afraid to eat it, and when I politely informed our server, he returned it to the kitchen where the chef challenged my opinion. The dish was run through the broiler after which it was returned to me in utter disarray. The appropriate, professional, and courteous solution, at a restaurant that purports to be fine dining, would have been to start from scratch and prepare a new dish. My husband's risotto was served cold and inedible and the shrimp component of our appetizer tasted just awful. In the end, our server wished to satisfy and the cost of the my entree was removed from the check - which was fair - but I, in turn, sat without eating. It seems that Highlawn has some catching up to do. The customer, the paying customer, has a right to determine that, if their meal is undercooked or unnacceptable to them it should be remedied, no questions asked - without a dispute from the kitchem.

Famous for its pizza, you must try their thin crust pizza. There are unique toppings, but we stayed with the usual meatball and mushrooms. The fried calamari is awesome and the salads are enormous. The eggplant and portabella mushroom appetizer is outstanding. Nice bar with tv's and people were watching basketball while we were there. Lots of families, very comfortable place.

When I want absolutely reliably, traditional, delicious Middle Eastern food, I eat at Falafel Hut, also in Montclair. When I want delicious Middle Eastern food with a twist, I eat at Mishmish or its new sibling, which is even more convenient to my house, Marcel's -- same chef. Marcel's isn't yet on TripAdvisor, but it has a Moroccan chicken soup that makes me want to have a cold, though it's also luscious when I'm not ill. I bought it the first time when I was, though, and it hit the spot. Marcel's is my favorite of the two.

We returned to the Manor for our 35th wedding anniversary A La Carte (not buffet) dinner. We live out of state so it was our first time back. The decor was beautiful, staff were very nice, the service was very fine, the ambience was excellent with live music!!! The food was perfect and delicious! Most all of the people in the restaurant were celebrating something and therefore the staff did not treat our celebratory after 35 yreas return as special! I think they should "fake" it or find joy and rejoice in all celebrations!!! After all if 80% of the restaurant is celebrating, their jobs are in finding joy in celebration!!!

Enjoyed our first dinner there and the food was excellent. They take and honor reservations and the waitstaff was excellent. There is ample parking in back with a rear entrance if you can't find street parking. The onion soup was hot and delicious. The caesar salad was crispy and good and the burgers were well prepared and delicious. The fish taco was fresh and the steak sandwich prepared deliciously. We will definitely return

Great service, friendly people from start to finish. Very well organized. Soup of the day was delicious, but a tad salty.
Pizza was different, true wood burning oven. Very tasty; thin and crisp. You have to have a taste for this type of pizza.
Unfortunately, very noisy.
