On 6/22/2017 we received this letter – This is just a little note to tell you how much my family and I enjoyed my birthday dinner at your restaurant.  My eight year old granddaughter, Julia, is a foodie!  By herself, she wrote and typed on the computer, a restaurant review of your establishment.  I have enclosed it for your enjoyment.- Sincerely, Carolyn P……………

Bavarian Manor by Julia L. – Today I went to a restaurant called The Bavarian Manor.  The building is very old fashioned.  It is a bed and breakfast.  It is a German restaurant.  It has very nice landscaping such as a beautiful pond, fire it, flowers all abut and a outdoor deck all around the building!!!  The restaurant was built in 1865, so the building is very old.

     Inside is all handicapped assessible.  The waitresses are wearing traditional German clothing and are very observant.  If you are having a birthdy there they will give you comlamentary balloons.  On the walls there is animal skin, fur and pictures.  All of the food this restaurant makes is all freshly made just for you!!!

     I was with a party of 7.  My whole party loved their meal!!! I ordered the Schnitzel.  It was delicious and sweet too !!!

     I recommend this restaurant to you!  This restaurant I know you will love in every way there is possible.  It is a very Beautiful and very Elegant.  This restaurant has some very Authentic German food.

     Please call 518-622-3261 or go online to address 866 Mountain Avenue

We of the Cairo Fish & Game Club wish to thank you for your donation in support of the 16th Annual Children’s Fishing Derby.  Your continued generous  support is extremely appreciated.  It would be impossible to find another location that is nearly as ideal and gracious.  We had 76 registered fishing youths with over 150 people in attendance.  A total of 473 fish were caught and released in the 2 hour window….It is the continued support & donations that enable us to provide this fun and educational service to the youth of our community.  Helping kids experience the time honored joy of fishing is just one of the many things we can do to help guide our youth towards a life filled with an appreciation and respect for our environment.   “Amen”   August 2014

Thank you Wonderful Dinners!  Rouladen @1  Excellent Service!  S.   (June 2013)

My family just had the pleasure of spending Memorial Day weekend at your Bavarian Manor Inn.  It was a family reunion of sorts as our children have left the nest!  My brother and sister-in-law hosted the event so they could present our family history which they  have been slaving away at for years!  Your hospitality made it possible for our weekend to not only happen but become a huge memorable success!

I want to personally thank you for being so patient and tolerant of my little granddaughter.  Without your kind-hearted flexibility, it could have been kind of boring for a six year old!  But she ended up having a great time.  Thank you again for letting us truly feel at home!  We will be back!  Rosie J, on behalf of the S/J Family!  (Feel free to share this card with whoever you want!)  May 2013

I just want to thank you, Suzanne and Nancy & Peggy for all the warmth and kindness you show when we visit…I always look forward to staying with you.  it’s truly a home away from home thanks to all of you.  Looking forward to seeing you this fall….all the best, big hug…Patty (May 2013)

Dear Bavarian Manor, I wanted to say thank you very much for a wonderful night.  Both me and my wife absolutely loved spending Valentine’s Day with you.  We eat at the Manor from time to time, but we will definitely come back to stay again in the near future.  The rooms are charming, the food is out of this world, and the service is outstanding.  Please tell Suzanne, “Thanks for the water!”  Sincerely Jerry S.

Dining out at the Bavarian Manor by Morgan E.

Restaurant Review – Mrs. DePoala’s 5th Grade Class

“I went to the Bavarian Manor On October 12th, 2008. It is located in Cairo, NY.. That night I had sauerbraten for the main course. On the sauerbraten there was a delicious gravy sauce. It was very tender, just the way I like it. It was absolutely delicious. For a side dish I had mash potatoes with gravy on it as well. I got a very oddly shapped mash potato. It was round. Also, I had red cabbage. I don’t like red cabbage though. It reminds me of broccoli. Other than that the dinner was perfect.

“The service was magnificent. We had a waitress. She was very polite. She introduced herself and checked up on us just when we needed here. She also made sure we got the right order. She told the chef exactly what we wanted. So everything came out perfect. The waitress we had made our night perfect.

“I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I would because everything we got was great. Like the food, drinks and service. Also you never had to wait long for anything. I would give this restaurant five stars. I would go this restaurant any day!”


Thank you so much – we had a great time – We will be sure to come back again! –

Chris & Marcy
