Manly grill

The best ribs in town! And not a bad steak either, good service and friendly staff, overlooking Manly beach. Good wines too, but a tad expensive, but worth it for a great night out.

I've had much better food elsewhere in Manly. We ordered the steak sandwich, standard hamburger and fish and chips. All were very average. Quite disappointing as lots of people have rated this place highly. The battered fish was excessively oily. The service however was very good. We will not return based on the food.

After a long morning touring the Rocks, we headed over to Manley on the ferry. Manly Grill was a welcome rest stop. Right opposite the Manly Beach, the view is great, with comfortable outdoor seating. Since it was my first trip to Australia, I was encouraged to try the croc burger. Okay, but would have enjoyed a good beef burger... More

Lovely staff, great view, clean and spacious interior. I had the fully loaded cheese bacon burger and it was delicious - my boyfriend had the crocodile (no idea why!!) and it was pretty bland... He had serious food envy! Reasonably priced - would come again

My husband & I dined here whilst on a short holiday in Manly after passing the restaurant a couple of times & noticing it was consistently busy, & thought it must be good! We certainly weren't mistaken! The staff were attentive without being overbearing, & the food was delicious. It did get quite busy, but yet noise wasn't a factor... More

We walked in off the street on a busy night but we're still seated straight away. Drinks came out immediate after being ordered and despite getting my steak cooked well done the meals arrived after about 30 mins. Our Waitress (Alex- think that's her name) was very friendly and attentive. The meat was perfectly cooked and the Jacketed Baked Potato... More

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 a... 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.
