We thought the food was very good at Manny's - we got seafood - which sometimes is just smothered in sauce at a Mexican restaurant, but not at Manny's. My salmon was cooked perfectly and my wife's swordfish was excellent. Margaritas were very good too. Service, however, was very, very slow. Seemed like they were understaffed. We were there for...

No flavor, bland. Got a small scoop of Mexican rice with the meal. Had to PAY for my chips and salsa which ALSO had no flavor. Not worth my time nor the money!

We absolutely love Mexican food and whenever we get a chance to try a new one, we're all for it. We were excited about going to Manny's but it wasn't the same feeling we walked about with when we left. The menu had to many entrees that were trying to take Mexican food high scale with combinations that would only... More

I remember when this place first opened and I was hooked. Definitely not cheap mexican food like you will get at a chain restaurant but high quality seafood mexican that everyone can enjoy. Not to mention the best happy hour for margaritas in the area. I only wish we still lived in the area so we could visit it weekly,... More

We have eaten many times at the Manny's in Eau Claire. It is, in fact, our New Year's Eve tradition. The original Manny's is even better. Their ceviche is spicy but great. (Better than the ceviche in Eau Claire.) We would be happy to go back to the original to dine, again, anytime.

Visited Manny's last month on an outing to the La Crosse area. My partner had tried it and her daughter raves about the place. I was a little skeptical but agreed to a try. Manny's is thoroughly okay. Now, I say that given that we moved from Arizona to Wisconsin (don't ask!). In AZ, every restaurant kitchen is staffed by... More

We used to go to Manny's a couple times a month but, then they changed the salsa recipe and Americanized it. Once that happened we didn't like going bacause we used to flavor whatever entree we purchased with the salsa. Now we hardly ever come and we miss the old Manny's. If they brought back the old salsa recipe or... More

I have been going to Manny's since they operated from a tiny old building on Hwy 53 in Onalaska. There is only one restaurant that can compare with the freshness and quality of their food and that is La Fuente in Tucson. My wife and I love Mexican cuisine so wherever we go we look for "Mexican!" Manny's is, by... More
