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.

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

Hands down best Mexican food in the area. The salsa & chips are super yummy. What I really liked was the set up. We had a group of about 10 and we had plenty of room. The plates are really cool and the food was delicious! (I had steak tacos) Everyone in our group was very happy with food, service... More

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.
