    The atmosphere is top notch and ther service starts off great. Once we were eating the service level seemed to drop off. The food is pretty good but not 5 star. The prime rib looked great but was tough. There was no bacon or sausage if you’re looking for meat options. The scones were delicious.

    Such a wonderful experience! It's a bit pricey at about $76/pp including tax and gratuity, but so worth the price for a special treat. The food was excellent and the desserts were amazing. Don't pass up the creme brulee! YUM! The service was attentive, but not overly so. We will be back.

    Current menu was delicious. The strawberry scones were really good. There was a selection of dishes as well as salmon, chicken, and carved beef. Coffee, champagne/mimosa, and orange juice was included and servers brought refills. I may have overdone it at the dessert buffet and had a chocolate covered strawberry, creme brulé, chocolate mousse, and small scoop of the peach cobbler. Walked around the grounds afterwards. A drive along narrow levee roads to get there. Make sure to add 15-20 minutes to whatever Google/maps tells you.

    Beautiful venue, excellent buffet brunch and the service was great! The only downside was the hostess sat us at a table for 4 and we were a party of 6 and had booked 2 months ahead. There were 2 tables available for 6 and we were eventually moved but we shouldn’t have had to plead our case.

    The array of food was great! Little bit of everything to cover your brunch needs. We lucked out as the mansion was not holding an event and the entire place was available to walk through.

    We have never visited the mansion before, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The Sunday brunch, while there are not many many options on the buffet, everything was very tasty. We especially enjoyed the prime rib and salmon the desserts did not disappoint. They were beautiful and delicious. The dining room was a little difficult with acoustics and slightly loud, but that was really only minor. We definitely will be back!

    This place is amazing. I believe it was built in the 1920s, and they let you explore the mansion before or after the brunch. The buffet food is amazing, and you will leave stuffed!

    Our annual tradition to go to the holiday brunch in December (it is also our Mother-Daughter same-day December birthdays celebration too). The Mansion is so festive and decorated so beautifully - just a great way to celebrate the holidays. The only thing missing was my Mom who started this tradition - but we honored her with a toast!

    We come here every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Its always nice to celebrate where you got married. But also the food is always amazing, the staff is great and so welcoming. They also remember us which is so heartwarming. And you’re able to tour the whole venue which is so beautiful. I love coming back here. Such a dream and so beautiful.
