Manor Bar and Grille is a community restaurant dedicated to quality service, in and out of the food industry. Since opening our doors January 8, 2007, the grille has grown to incorporate catering services, online ordering options and a reputation of commitment to our neighbors in Westmoreland County. Through seasonal donation boxes, the Penn Township Scholarship Fundraiser and the free, annual Thanksgiving Dinner, we strive to show our appreciation by giving back to the customers who helped establish us.
A family-friendly environment that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, weekday specials that have established our reputation for quality, homemade food are sprinkled-in Monday through Sunday. Notoriously known for our breakfast, polish platters, turkey dinner and even specialty pizzas, our unique recipes and dishes are an equal rival to any larger franchises in the area. Aside from our menu, what really makes us stand-out is the support and friendship of our wonderful customers.
