Trying to think of what to say about Manory’s, I finally come to the word “comfortable,” which I think probably sums things up as well as possible. Manory’s is a comfortable place, one of the least “restauranty” restaurants I’ve been in. It is, after all, the oldest operating restaurant in Troy, so presumably it’s had some time to get settled. As for the food, it’s very respectable diner stuff: all-day breakfast (including the flagship Big Breakfast, $4.95), sandwiches, dinner specials, and so forth, priced in the five to eight dollar range. You can’t go too far astray; I’ve yet to hear of anyone being disappointed with their meal here. The only let-down at Manory’s is the fact that they close so early in the evenings, essentially disqualifying the place as an option for those of us who prefer eating our dinners after five.
