    The food was really good! We had the baby back ribs and an Archie Burger. Both were awesome. The staff was friendly, and seeing all of the pictures and sports Memorabilia makes the visit well worth the trip.

    The atmosphere was fabulous if you are a sports fan. Adding to the atmosphere is wonderful outdoor dining if you prefer and the food was great. Highly recommend to anyone visiting New Orleans that wants a great meal where you can dress casual.

    We recommended this restaurant to our group this weekend as our prior experience (about 4 months ago) was quite enjoyable. It seems that everything we liked about it has changed. The menu was different. Several of the dishes were simply not tasty. The kids all wanted root beer floats as we had on our prior visit. The staff did attempt to fill that order even though it was not in the menu. The best dish was the kids' Mac and cheese. The servers were friendly but the kitchen failed them. We were disappointed and won't be recommending it any time soon.

    I thought Mannings was a nice restaurant, not a sports bar, my mistake, No silverware was on the table. We received our apatizer and had to eat with our fingers. The main course was brought and the waiter was leaving and had to be called back because still no silverware. I do not like that you do not answ. the phone, no way to talk to anyone, no way to ask questions. The food was OK, nothing special. I ordered ribs, first time that I have ever ordered ribs and got a peace of meat with no bone, The meat had a lot of fat. The other 3 dishes were OK.

    Server was a "no we can't" kind of gal - not a "yes we can"! Two of us ordered burgers and told her how we wanted them cooked. She said it's a thin patty and they're all cooked the same. We questioned this since last time we ate here the burger patties were thick and juicy. She said instead of an 8 oz, they now use two 4 oz patties cause it's too hard to get them cooked right and this way's easier on the kitchen. Too loud for a family dinner. Not terribly busy (there were empty tables all around us), so not sure why staff seemed frazzled and some menu items were not available. Previous visit, we had good service and a good experience. I hope this restaurant can sustain this and not let the quality slip. This visit disappointing.

    Very Dissappointed Menu limited the food was salty and cold. I heard from many of my friends and business associates same but i wanted to give the establishment a chance . I know many well known new orleanians that I will let them know/ let my family members that work at channel 6 know as well. If you check i did not spend a little amount of money my bill was $ 200+ it was not worth it PS i dine very frequently on Fulton Street always was suggested by my party dont go there but i was wiling to try

    There are lots of TVs, great bar area, and a nice seating area similar to a Sports Book in a casino. So, great atmosphere. However, the waiter didn't have knowledge of the beer selection. We got there about 7 and the only special on drinks was some weird deal where you had to go to the restaurant next door first. Why tell us about it if we aren't eligible? The food was mediocre: Burgers had 2 thin patties like at McDonalds. The "BBQ" shrimp were really over-rich with butter. The grits come as two fried patties with grits and mostly cheese. It sounds delicious, if you are ready to blow your diet, but it was way too rich. The menu is short and sweet so we expected each item to be good. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend it.

    We honestly only tried this place because we hadn't planned ahead for Saturday dinner reservations and this was one of the only spots on our list of possibilities that didn't have a wait. We had burgers and they were very good. Not a huge menu, but offered all the typical sports bar type of food. Service was prompt and friendly. The only down side was that there really wasn't anything about the place that felt specific to New Orleans - could have been in any city - and we try to visit restaurants that feel more "local". But it's a great option for a decent meal and we wouldn't mind returning.

    My wife and I live in New Orleans and we went there since we had never been and wanted to try something different. We were both very pleased with the food. She had the Nicoise Salad and I had the New York Strip. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. They had a surprising variety of different wines and the J. Lohr I had was really good. It's a sports bar with a huge TV (multiple TV's put together) on the wall and TV's lined up along the wall. Each had a different game on, which is why we were pleasantly surprised how good the food was.

    This was our second trip to Mannings and again the food was a big disappointment. It's simply just low quality bar food and frankly I believe if it weren't for the "Manning" label this restaurant would not have survived in a city with countless outstanding restaurants.

    We were small group and the staff directed everyone to the bar until everyone arrived. They were very nice but the waitress was ridiculously slow and would forget ordered items. We waited a very long time with nothing but a loaf of bread (no butter or dipping oil)and the drinks we had brought form the bar. One uncut loaf of bread for 12 people was strange. Had we not been having such good conversation, I would have gotten up to speak to the manager.

Our last experience was much better than this one. Overall we had a great time because we were with a group. The food is sports bar good. Would like a bit more on the menu- more choices for sandwiches and salads.

    Got our salad before our drinks came saw server a total of maybe three times good thing we didn't have anything wrong with our food or needed a refill because we would have gone hungry in thirsty. Took forever to get te check. Oh and it wasn't that busy either so there were no excuses. Nothing bad about the food but that the wedge salad was nothing special. Party liked their entrees of pork and my burger was ok. Fries were good though!!!

    The sports bar atmosphere was nice, however, the menu did not fit it. Was not impressed at all. I ordered gumbo and being from New Orleans I know what it should taste like. The gumbo had no taste at all. Really think a menu change would help. Before going myself I was told the food wasn't that great and now I can agree.

    Former long time New Orleans residents, our family met up in town for the Saints Monday Night game and a birthday celebration. We are all die-hard fans of the Manning family, and decided Manning's would be the perfect pre-game dinner spot. The atmosphere was nice, the restaurant is clean, and decorated with Manning memorabilia. The food was pretty good. The downfall was the service. The server was pleasant enough, though not friendly, and just did not seem interested in providing good service. We had to ask for utensils after our appetizers arrived. I asked three times for a cold glass (I never got it). The couple sitting next to us said they'd experienced the same thing with their service. We likely will not return.
