Perfect old school supper club

This a perfect place for a special occasion or just a great steak. The char grilled lobster is worth driving for miles and the grilled garlic bread is second to none.

For the money, you get a very good meal. Choice steaks that are prepared well, and cooked to desired temps! The menu is simple, doesn't look any different from my first visit many years ago. Wish they would add some other things like the Porketta they have at the State Fair.

I have been going to Mancini's for several years. It is usually an older crowd, but I love the old school charm of the place and feel like the Rat Pack might come walking through the door at any time. My husband and I usually eat in in the dining room, but my favorite part of the restaurant is the... More

I've been eating at Mancini's since I was a kid. I always get the Filet & Lobster Tail you can never go wrong. The lobster melts in your mouth. My wife loves the charred garlic bread. They don't have much for selection but that's ok they are very good at what they do. Service is always top notch. It's a... More

We made a trip to Mancini's tonight for our anniversary. It was 1.5 hour drive one way. The restaurant and the atmosphere were wonderful. What a walk down memory lane. We both ordered the filet and lobster dinner - steaks medium. Both of our steaks came nearly well done. When the waitress saw my face as I cut into mine,... More

If you want steak this is a good choice. My wife swears the grasshoppers are the best in the cities. Always a good crowd and great service

This is the place to have a perfect martini and a delicious steak. Some things should not change, and Mancini's has maintained the same ambiance and good food for decades.

The Mancini family has owned this for decades. They take great pride in the service. Enjoy looking at photos of the celebrities who have performed there and been fed there! The Mancinis are my wife's relatives, and they treat us like royalty! But they seem to treat every customer that way, too!

Limited menu of steaks, lobster, walleye. Steak good but not outstanding, good baked potato, green beans okay. We didn't have dessert. House wines drinkable - order a bottle. Mancini's has been a family favorite for decades, but it's a bit tired. Bright spot was the server who worked really hard at pleasing a large table.

You can't beat their prices and the steaks are excellent. The atmosphere is cool, it's like going back into the 70's and you'd expect Frank Sinatra to walk in. I think it was $30 for their larger filet, that comes with salad and bread. For that price, you can't beat it! The staff is very friendly and the service is... More
