Walleye-broiled parmesan crusted is awesome. What a great piece of fish. Cooked perfectly. My entire party had zero complaints. Every thing was just perfect.

We had 2 filet Mignon & Lobster (2 @ $55.50 each). A glass of Moscato ($6.00), a Bella Sera Beer ($6.00), a Bailys ($6.50) and a Grand Mariner ($7.00). Our steak and lobster was grilled and out of this world. They also served garlic toast before the meal that melts in your mouth and a dish of marinated pickles, peppers... More

We were here last night for a party. We had a choice of fish, filet, chicken or sirloin. I had the sirloin and my wife had the chicken. The chicken was very dried out and the marinara didn't help. I had the sirloin. It was a thick cut and would have been better as a thinner cut. Both potatoes were... More

I can't believe I lived in the metro area 5 years before visiting this place. The atmosphere is awesome. It reminded me a bit of Nye's, and now that Nye's is gone it's nice to have a place like this. Our server was wonderful. We felt like she was our mom. Food was great, wine was delicious and we had... More

I just love this place. Make sure you stop into the bar for a cocktail before dinner. Great old school place. Been coming here since the 70's and I just love it. The steaks are to die for! Great place and great service.

We went here for our annual adult prom. We just had drinks and dancing. Our server was on his a game and took great care of us. This place is a piece of St. Paul history Not over priced and awesome place to hang out.

We have been her so many times with family and friends and when my husband and I want to celebrate our birthdays or anniversary. Our children will often give us a gift card for Mancini's as they know we like to come here. When my son was playing football at a local high school, Mancini's would have post-football game gatherings... More

Mancini's has been a family favorite for 50 years.Always feel An all welcome and the service is top notch. This is all takes a back seat to the steaks. Never a bad meal whether in the Char House or in the bar for a quick sandwich. Never disappointing!

This place was everything that we had been led to believe it was. Even though the place was packed, we could still talk to each other without shouting. The waitress was with us in a very short time, and she was very friendly. We each ordered a filet, and they were done to perfection. Soon after the order was placed,... More
