I've been here for dinner a few times and it was pretty good. I like the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp but was kind of underwhelmed last time for dinner, especially because it's so expensive. However, we had lunch here and it was fantastic (yet still expensive). I had the crab cake salad and my husband had the mahi tacos and we thought it was great. I love their mojitos too. The only thing was that last time when we were there for lunch the service was not good. It was like they were kind of slow so they weren't paying attention really well. We actually saw two people come in, wait at the counter, and then leave when they weren't acknowledged. We initially sat outside, but decided to come inside to make sure the employees saw us to remember we were there (not our first time in this type of situation!).

“What A Suprise in Eau Claire”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We were in Eau Claire on business and we both thought Mexican food sounded good. We asked at the front desk and they gave us a couple of suggestions and said if you want "upscale" Mexican go to Manny's. Both of us are fine with local TexMex you find in most places but we had to go see what "upscale" Mexican was in Eau Claire.

Boy were we surprised! A tastefully designed interior in a relatively new building. A very nice bar with all the upscale tequillia and margarittas available. Those alone would qualify for "upscale" mexican but then they went much further. They had a wine list, especially boutique California vineyards, that would surpass any upscale restaraunt. Then beside for a nice variety of both traditional and nice Mexican dishes they also had at least 6 fresh fish dishes on the menu. In Eau Claire

All of this and the prices are reasonable! Service, atmostphere, food and drinks were great. Dont pass this one up!

“Sunday's are the best!!!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We went here on a Sunday and were amazed at the specials they had for Sunday. Half price drinks and $2.00 domestic beers. The Mahi-Mahi tacos were excellent and only $5.00!!! The other items were very good to. If you are going to try this place out go on a Sunday.

“Better than appears”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I showed up at 11:30 to beat the lunch crowd and was the only one there. The service was friendly and fast. I had the Acapolco(sp?) nacho appetizer and was very tasty. Says it has jalapeno's, but I couldn't taste them which was fine by me. Decore is cool!

“Always great seafood, and the best wine list in town.”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Manny's has great Mexican seafood. Great quality, great variety. They might have the best wine list in town, at least the best list of the wines they actually have unlike others. It is a big place. Even on busy nights, you can get a table and good service. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant, it is so much better.
