Our son, who lives in Mnpls, frequents Mannings. Once he introduced us to the restaurant, we always request to go for breakfast when we are in town. The food is very good. It isn't fancy or gourmet; it's just great food for a great price. Friendly staff and down home cafe setting.

Stopped in with a group, there was about 12 of us. I had the bacon cheeseburger & fries. The food was great, the restaurant is very cozy, and our waitress Marissa was very attentive. I would definitely eat here again!

A group of 7 of us stopped in to Manning's for a beer and appetizer after another event. We had never been to Manning's before, but we will be going back in the future. What a fun place! Great service from a staff that was very interactive and fun to deal with. Had a beer, some popcorn adn light appetizers.... More

I was walking down Como Avenue and struck up a conversation with a gentleman who was training for a trek in Africa (with his Son). As we came in the vicinity of Manning`s Cafe & Bar (2200 Como Ave.), he said this place has the best burgers in Minneapolis.The next evening, my Daughter, Grandson and I chose to try it... More

Wow! I recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was top notch as well as the food. What they recommended was tried and definitely worth the try. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We went with several families from our baseball team and we all truly enjoyed the service, the food, and the company of the manager. Thanks for making... More

This has been a favorite neighborhood restaurant for me since my years at the University of Minnesota in the 1970's. The service was very good on an average Thursday night. The food was delivered quickly, and was hot and tasty. No "fine cuisine" here, but if good "bar food" is what you expect, you will not be disappointed.

Went there with family. Atmosphere is ok; not great. Service was decent. We ordered onion rings and cheese curds which were good. We also ordered cheeseburgers, patti melts and fries which were all decent. I would surely recommend a facelift for the place as seating is not very comfortable. Would not be my first choice but it was nice to... More

Stay away! This place stinks, not only are their restrooms grandfathered in but the staff are inconsiderate of any thing new. I would rather visit a micro brew-bar instead, there are many in NE Mpls. chef from NE

We had a great lunch there. I had a patty melt -- a favorite which I never eat because of the calories, etc. But this was sure the place to eat a patty melt. On grilled pumpernickle bread with cheese and fried onions. It's making my mouth water just to think about it. Can't wait to go back there. My... More
