Whilst staying locally myself and family found this great little restaurant. It has everything you could ask for, quirky, friendly staff, a good happy hour and fantastic food. No complaints what-so-ever. My son claimed that they had the "best ribs he had ever tasted'
I would recommend all day long!

Stopping at Mannys for the only meal I had for the day on my business trip to Lakeland and it was a great choice. I had the ribs with a side of beer and hit the spot. Friendly bartender and fun crowd in the bar helped ease a long day.

Went to Manny's for the first time, in March, for my sister's birthday. I had previously heard it was an expensive restaurant. It actually is very reasonable, for a steakhouse.
Of course they have a few pricy choices, but you can get a very decent steak in the $10 to $12 range, They're not huge steaks for that price, but plenty big enough for me.
Since going in March, my husband and I have been back 3 more times. Taking friends of ours along on the last two. They also love the place.
First off, the tables have cloths, but are covered with plain paper, which they change for each seating. The waiter's all greet you, and write their names upside down on the paper, so that you can read their names. Really helps to remember them. lol .Wonder how long it takes them to learn how to write upside down?
You get a choice of soup, or they bring a big bowl of salad to the table, to share.
The rolls are hot, soft, and yummy, with reg or cinnamon butter.
Our steaks have always been delicious. They also have prime rib, which my husband adores.
One word of caution. If you normally order your steak med well, just order it med, and it will be perfect. I found med well, comes out a bit dry.
We will definitely be going back to Manny's over and over.

Me and my wife were in town for a family reunion and were told by the hotel staff we stayed in to come here. The atmosphere was great along with the decor. Food was delicious..but...wish we would have sat in the restaurant instead of at the bar. The bar was only somewhat busy but each of our drinks stayed empty for around 3-5 mins on average. The bartender was exactly happy to be there either. I never judge as you never know what is going on outside (or inside) work. However, we really enjoyed the food and the salad was amazing. I learned sitting there, locals love it here too but also say the same thing about the bartender(s). We will certainly be back when we come back to Lakeland but just not to the bar seating.
