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

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...

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
