Mancini's is one of our absolute favorite restaurants, and our most recent dinner there was the most special ever. There are so many things we love about it, and that never change -- the relish tray, the grilled garlic bread, a good salad, a simple menu, great service, and reasonable prices. The steaks are always first-class -- excellent cuts, perfectly... More

We were attending a large family reunion and when I heard the big dinner was at Mancini's, I assumed it was Italian. Looked it up on TA to see what was good only to discover it's a classic steakhouse. When you arrive, you get a plate of sliced tomatoes and pickles. Then they bring the bread - it's all good...

Stopped in for a little dinner time in the lounge ordered up the Shrimp Cocktail $ 9.99 then the Steak Sandwich $ 12.95 that is an 8 ounce steak cooked perfectly. And surprise, Surprise it was karaoke night with all it's splendor. Fun time.

I like the simple menu. Service was perfect but our server could at least try to smile. You can't argue with success, this place was full at 530 PM. We had a tenderloin and a strip. The rare was rare, the medium rare was rare. But the flavor of the meat was average and the char very heavy and unappetizing... More

I always enjoy a night out at this St. Paul landmark MANCINIS restaurant, either with coworkers ,family and friends it's always a good time with great service and really great tasting food ! The New York steak is a must! The owners are usually walking around the restaurant making sure the customers needs are met.

Mancini's Char House is a landmark in the Twin Cities for great steaks and chicken reasonably priced. The service staff is friendly and attentive without hovering. Every table still gets a relish tray and unlimited charred garlic toast (both white and pumpernickel). Happy hour drink prices are really cheap. Whether you are out for business, date night or just by... More

The décor was outdated, the salad was pathetic, the service was subpar at best and the atmosphere was just bland. It feels like being in a casino with the old red chairs and patrons that seem to all be 60+. The plate came with prepackaged butter and sour cream the whole experience felt cheap the steak however was a solid... More

Mancini's has been around almost forever....and nothing has changed much. Great decor, service and food. Very reasonably priced. The Steak Kabob is the best value on the menu. Drinks are reasonably priced. Gotta love the grilled bread appetizer.

We love to come here, especially for celebration meals; they treat you like family. Great hospitality is hard to find these days - Mancini's has it! John & Pat Mancini run the restaurant with the same spirit and pride that their dad did. My mouth starts to water just thinking of their awesome garlic toast. Honestly, by the time I... More
