Great spot, nice food, great service, view of the ocean!

The Manly Grill is my go-to spot for a bite of lunch on the beach when in Manly - the view is fantastic (and a little quieter than some of their neighbors), great for people-watching and a 30 second stroll to the sand. You can sip a glass of cold white wine while listening to the waves, and enjoy... read more

When we want a steak, we pop down to Manly Grill. Service always good. Steaks cooked perfectly. Also some terrific combos. My son always goes for something different, the croc burger or kangaroo. Although you don't need dessert, they have a good selection.

3 of us went to Manly grill for dinner after finishing Taronga Zoo and a short stroll of the beach.. The food was very good and came in good servings. The ambience and the location (right opposite Manly beach) added to the nice experience. The service can surely be improved for a restaurant with such good quality food.

This restaurant is located on Manly beach - we travelled to Manly by ferry - walked down the Corso to the beach & sussed out the restaurants & chose the Manly Grill as the menu looked good & there was a vacant table for two alfresco The first thing that we enjoyed was the service in making us comfortable at...

Staff were nice and efficient. Food was tasty and plentiful. We had the pulled pork and soft shell crab sandwiches. The fries were tasty but not extraordinary. The vanilla shake was a bit underwhelming, which brought this review down a bit. The view was excellent, as we ate outside on a table facing the beach.

We arrived early evening to Manly Grill without a reservation but the man on the door was more than happy to accommodate us. He sat us outside with a lovely view of the beach - it was perfect! I had the bucket of prawns to start followed by the eye fillet which was cooked beautifully. The service was fantastic from... More

We have dined in Manly Grill on all of our trips to Sydney and it never fails to impress! I have tried several of the items on the menu, however my favourites have to be the soft shell crab, 'surf n turf', and their amazing Crème brûlée, which is served whilst still flaming! The staff are always very attentive and... More

We visited The Manly Grill for lunch on our first full day in Australia. I'd walked down Manly beach with my partner and his sister who we were staying with and we thought we'd take a break and watch the gorgeous views for a while. My partner likes a burger and he noticed the advertisement of a rather large burger... More

I dont know if it was my bad choice or what but I ordered the wagyu steak here recently and was sorely disappointed. Maybe I should have gone for something more usual(and cheaper). GF had eye fillet and wasnt very impressed. I will give the place another go with a different order. The staff are friendly and the location is... More
