“Not great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

The food and ribs and rumps all tasted the same! I ordered steak and my husband had a ribs and chicken combo. Because everything is covered in the special sauce it all tastes the same!

The table we were seated at had a great view of manly beach and the staff we friendly and helpful!

“Viking meal by the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Manly is the original home of Ribs and Rumps and has been a favourite destination spot of mine for many years. With a recent refurbishment late September 2012, Ribs and Rumps Manly delivers viking portions of the finest quality meats for lunch and dinner daily. It’s upper level location at South Steyne has amazing views of Manly beach, light & modern décor, bar and open kitchen.

The relaxed and casual atmosphere is perfectly suited for all patrons – family, couples, hanging out with mates and even an ideal place to entertain business clients. I on the other hand, bring all my international guests and families to this location.

Travel by Ferry from Wharf 3 at Circular Quay. From Manly Wharf and straight down The Corso till you reach the beach on South Steyne. Turn right and a short walk you will see it on your right and up the stairs.

Meal Highlights:

Entrée: Cheesy Garlic Bread, Buffalo Wings

Main: Burgers, Seafood, Chicken and Vegetarian options are available on the menu. But seriously, its no secret why you are here. Ribs and Rump Combos and the Famous Steaks is the way to go. My mouth-watering dish has to be the Pork & beef ribs with a delicious 220g rump steak and chips (you can have baked potatoes instead of chips). You could go all “Viking” on us and order the awesome Full Rack Beef Ribs. Slow-cooked in their special marinade then grilled in their signature basting……yum.

Make room for dessert as the Sticky Date Pudding, Waffle & Cheesecake were popular at our table.

For the little ankle biters (under 12yrs), kids menus are available with “bottomless” soft drinks and two scoops of ice-cream. Plenty to keep their tummies full.

And, of course, you should help your meal along with a cocktail, a beer or a glass of wine or two.

Perfect location, great and attentive service, friendly crew – what more could you ask.

See you next time!

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Went here for dinner last Friday . Soggy garlic prawns with crunchy rice, tasteless sirloin steak, and not to mention flat coke on tap (was told it was due to a small glass).
On the up side fantastic views & great decor.
Do yourself a favour and go to Classic China next door!

“Like eating at a Pub”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

This was my second visit to this restaurant after 3 years the only thing that had improved was the decor and upgrade that they have done, otherwise it's like eating in a loud Pub. All night we had to put up with a video screen and loud music on top of the crowd noise which you would expect, we asked for the music to be turned down and were told this would be done but nothing happened. After we had finished our mains and declined the dessert menu no one came near us after that and had to wait 15 minutes for the bill ( more loud music) never again !!!!!

“Signature Wagyu very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We have been going to Ribs and Rumps Manly for 12 years and tonight with our overseas visitors we were very disappointed indeed. The Wagyu steak was small thin and tasteless - I would not buy, cook or serve a steak like this never mind pay $50 for it. The experience was disappointing - music extremely loud, our 2nd bottle of wine was 'off' and the desserts ordinary.
