Manny's gets it's seafood flown in daily. Menu is varied and always has great seafood entrees. They just changed their guacamole recipe - very fresh and chunky. Not outstanding, but definitely above average Mexican with a seafood specialty.

The good part of the night. Got there early for half priced margaritas. Guacamole was ok, just ok. Ceviche way to hot, and one tone. Two of us ordered lobster, which was one of their specials. Incredibly overcooked, no flavor. Requested to return it and waitress had to call owner. He explained to us that they didn't get much call... More

They have the best guacamole! I hate guacamole, but at Manny's I could eat my own dish of it! They have great cheese dip too! The swordfish is excellent and so is they crab tacos. Also, I highly recommend the jumbo margaritas! It's a bit pricey but it's worth it!

I know many people who like Manny's, but I find it average. If you know how to cook seafood, it isn't anything special.

For visitors to the La Crosse/Onalaska, WI region and seeking an exceptional dining experience you won't go wrong visiting Manny's Cocina. Our server, Eric, was attentive and most helpful in explaining the menu items to our group of 5 adults and a 6-month-old for whom Eric provided a small bowl of fresh mango. The adults selected different items that all... More

Manny's is one our favorite stops when we are in LaCrosse. Today's visit had us trying a "lunch special" salad and the seafood linguine, both were tasty. Our server was helpful and efficient. If you have time to enjoy delicious Mexican cuisine while you are visiting or passing through LaCrosse, take a minute to visit Manny's Mexican Cocina - conveniently... More

Excellent menu item and added cherizo for additional zing. Hot jalepono peppers/carrots are a must. The staff is also very efficient and courteous.

I have had my first bad experience at Manny's. My mother and I ordered a salad (Fiesta salad with Cajun Shrimp--can't recall the exact name). We order this salad every time we visit for lunch because we love it. Today we were greatly disappointed. After tasting this we both immediately said that something was wrong with the dressing, very bland,... More

Took dear wife out for a Friday Night meal. Step #1 - order perfect margaritas (absolutely fantastic!). Step #2 - order a meal with fish or seafood. Mannys knocks the cover off the ball with its specialty sauces. It is best known for its Jalapeño Cream sauce- I had it on both scallops and crab stuffed shrimp. Wow! On my... More

If I'm looking for a local restaurant that serves great fish, this is the place that we go. Their Sea Bass is just amazing. I never had a bad meal there. The fish is very fresh and I assure you, you can't go wrong at Manny's. Their Mexican dishes are prepared very well too. Love this place.
