The family who owns this restaurant are always friendly. The food is delicious and filling. The atmosphere is cool...like a whisper of the 1960s lounge era. Mostly steak...the smell makes my mouth water when I enter.

Go there. It's old. It's retro to the hilt, but nobody there knows its retro. Or they all know and don't care. This is a classic BIG steak place. Big cars, big drinks, big cuts of beef, big everything. Go there when you just can't stand one more micro-nuveaux-fair trade-vegan-artisenal "creation" and you just want a big hunk of cow... More

Funky atmosphere, a red-ish glow about the place. Had the signature dish - New York Strip - which was amazing. Had to focus on the meat only as the steak was so big.

Iconic downtown St.Paul steakhouse has been around for decades. It is a throwback to the fifties and sixties with red naugahyde booths and multiple selections of standard steaks. Fabulous bar area. The steaks are very average but if it is the history and the decor you are seeking, this is a place for visiting a bygone era.

It had been a while since we have dined at Mancini's, and we had heard some different things so we were anxious to get back and see if still excelled. Our party of five unanimously thought so. We were seated in the main dining room with its classic supper club aura. Beverages were very reasonably priced and well made. The... More

A group of friends from across the South & Midwest had dinner at Mancini's this week. Most of us had eaten here during business trips through the years and have fond memories of meals shared. This one was was no exception! Everything was wonderful! Steaks, charbroiled lobster and walleye were all exceptional! The chicken wings and meatballs, compliments of Mr.... More

This old St. Paul establishment serves up classic cocktails and delicious char grilled steaks. The charred toast and relish tray of marinated tomatoes and pickles was a great start of a fabulous dining experience. The silver cups of salad dressing reminds me of my childhood and the supper clubs we frequently visited around a Wisconsin. The walleye almandine was also... More

This is your classic supper club resturant. Dark and little older crowd. Not a ton of menu options mainly steak and some fish options. It does have a bar with bands and singing.

This was on a Wednesday night and we were ordering cocktails and dessert. Overall, the steaks are excellent. My son has downs and they... More

I took my sister here when she was here from out of town and likes meat. This the place for that. Think old fashion steak house. The waitress was great. She appeared to be a fixture there and knew the business inside and out. My sister had the sirloin, which she declared excellent. I had the kabobs. Very good too.... More
