Great outdoor area. I do hope that it reopens. The restaurant's food was okay, and I think they really struggled thru the winter months. The outdoor area was usually crowded during nice weather.

I really enjoy the back deck at Manny's. Perfect place to meet a friend for a cocktail, appetizer and Mexican dinner. The chips are complimentary and are excellent. They are served warm with salsa. I found the guacamole to be most tasty. Seasoned just right....More

Went here with my sisters for lunch. The food was so-so but our server was rude. We won't be going back.

My wife and I went to Manny's for dinner, like we occasionally do. We got there a little after 8, they close at 10. Everyone seemed to be outside so we chose a booth inside. First off, what appeared to be the manager seated us....More
