This past weekend, I was so very disappointed to see one of my favorite eating places, the Maniax restaurant closed. I had hoped they were only doing renovations but as I just read on this site, unfortunately I'm wrong. This place will be greatly missed & I hope the owners will reopen somewhere else & let us all know where.... More

Don't bother going to Mainiax. It is closed & will soon be a pre-school. Too bad. We liked the cheap lobster rolls and the smores for dessert:(:(

Had the best scallops and steak tips.... It's going to be challenging to find a new 'go to' for this combo

Unfortunately we have closed our doors! We have reimbursed gift certificates to customers that have presented us with the gift certificates, or a receipt for the purchase. We simply can't reimburse anyone walking through the door claiming to have bought certificates with no validation. The manager was correct in sending you to the website for information. Thank you for being... More

They have many soups and sandwiches for lunch and are pretty cheap for what you get. It's a great way to enjoy a meal if you are looking to conserve cash or have to feed many people. The staff is decent and attentive and the restaurant looked like it was recently redone and very clean. They have a mini gift... More
