Very old school steak house - relish tray, garlic toast basket, baked potato, simple salad with classic dressings. Good for a basic steak and potatoes - service was steady - drinks good - wine list fair. Your parents will like this restaurant!

I'll take this place over Manny's or Murray's in Minneapolis any day. Family owned and an icon of St Paul.

Very old school, but very good steak! I had a filet that was very good and cooked the way I like it (medium). Very good baked potatoes. My wife had the blackened walleye which was also very good!! The garlic bread was good. The waiter was only average.

Any special occasion comes along and we head to Mancini's Char House on West 7TH St in St. Paul, MN. It's quite a drive from Mahtomedi, MN (25 miles)but well worth the trip. You know that you will not be disappointed. I always get the large Sirloin Steak, and it is always mouth watering ($24) and delicious! Only problem is... More

Macini's is a classic! Right out of the past. Simple menu (meat!), good drinks, and a great atmosphere. We had a work event here w/30 people or so and we had the back room. We had great service and food.

This supper club is definitely a blast from the past. The meu is smallish: steaks, chicken or walleye. The steaks are great, perfectly done, and the relish tray is a treat. Our waitress was a little older and a little crabby at first but I thought her impatience kind of fit the old school vibe. There's lots of parking too.

We stopped here for a bite before going to a concert ..We found out they had a shuttle bus going from there..free parking, free bus made the price of dinner not bad at all. I tried the sirloin ( which I usually don't get due to lack of taste) with the char-grilling it was quite tasty. My wife who's not... More

Yes, the family has some ties to the owners and the restaurant. But, that aside, the first meal there in nearly 4 years was as wonderful as ever. The service impeccable, and again made our celebration even more special. Thanks to all the Mancini family!

Simply put, this place makes great steaks. As someone who enjoys juicy, flavorful, and tender steaks I cannot recommend this place more. Everything else we had was tasty too (lobster). The atmosphere was fun - very old school. I could easily imagine the rat pack eating here at the next booth.

This is a step back to your youth in a restaurant where Naugahyde is king, the drinks are strong and the steaks are excellent. Can you get a better steak in Minneapolis/St Paul? Of course you can - but the Strip will cost you $40, the sides $12 and the salad $10. You will pay half that here for a... More
