I love Mancini's! I go for the Steak and Lobster, the Garlic Bread, and even the tomatoes in Italian dressing. We have went here to celebrate family members Birthdays, Retirement Parties, Date Nights, or just because we want a Great Steak for years!

...and not just the steaks. The owners are on the floor checking on every customer. That's rare. The menu is somewhat limited...everything served is a specialty. That's rare too. The bread basket is stunning. The relish tray fascinating. The facility is huge and diverse...think cruise ship in magnitude. The lounge is a night club and the walls are covered with... More

First. This is a pretty large place. In addition to the dinning rooms, they have private rooms for events. The bar is large. It is a throwback in decor. But nothing run down. The menu is small. They do a great steak. Good meat, nicely trimmed, cooked to perfection on a large grill. The grill is visible if you like... More

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
