The service was okay, staff was attentive to our needs (we were dining with a child in a wheelchair). They made sure the table had enough room for the chair. Pre-dinner was great.

Then there was dinner. I ordered the house salad that was basically some spinach with a dollop of overly sweet dressing. And we had three different orders of grilled fish (Redfish I think). It was the tiniest serving of fish I've ever seen. When I asked the waitress about it, she said that was their normal portion...DON'T order the fish.

I will try it again...change the salad and order something besides fish

The family ate here on Father's Day for lunch. The crowd was
Light so service was great. We
Had the fried pickle (spears) app which was good. I've had better but it was a nice start. My wife and I both had the seafood gumbo and house salad. The salad had waaay too much dressing. Almost to the point the spinach was soggy. The gumbo was just ok. It had a strong herb flavor, something I just couldn't place. The spice was nice but overall it wouldn't make my top 10 gumbo list. I did have the Archie Manning drink which is his spin on the Arnold Palmer. That drink was great. The atmosphere is amazing. We def. would go back for football season and maybe give the food another shot.

We were part of a very large group filling Mannings' upstairs for a murder mystery night. We had pre-ordered our meal with the choices of fish or surf and turf. Going in with very low expectations for the event or the food we were happily surprised with everything. Dinner was promptly served with the serving staff attentive to empty glasses and,finished salad plates. Surf and turf was a nicely done medium rare steak with three grilled shrimp on top of mashed potatoes with grilled asparagus. It was delicious...for a small table much less a large group. Those with fish said theirs was excellent as well. Dessert was a fudgy chocolate lava cake.
The murder mystery team was funny, interactive, and created a great evening of entertainment. We had a great time. Based on this evening, I will go back to Mannings for an actual dinner with a much smaller group.

Service here was horrible!! When my wife and I walked in, we were ignored and eventually taken to a seat. We then moved to the bar for hope of better service....no luck there!! Tried the oyster po-boy which was very bland. No flavor and too greasy for our liking. To each their own..I know we will not be returning or recommending here. Such a good set-up for a sports bar but not at all justified by the service and food.
