My hubby and I were out on a road trip on the motorcycles. We stopped in for lunch after reading the reviews. We enjoyed a really good buffet with the best broasted chicken I have ever had. The ribs were fall off the bone tender. Mashed potatoes and gravy were really good. Also the cheese potatoes, salad was crisp. So... More

We have eaten here many times while in town for work. The service has always been decent but the buffet is just okay. The salad bar is good but limited and the hot food is good, but the options just don't excite me. Typical basic buffet items. We come back for convenience and it is decent food, but nothing is...

Don't let the name "Steakhouse" fool you, the day we were there it was a buffet. I think on Sunday they put out the buffet. However, for a buffet, it was some mighty good eatin' and plenty of it. The chicken, mashed taters & gravy was my selection. Excellent.

What can one say, The Manhattan is the place to go for a lunch or dinner buffet. The usual salads, potatoes and desserts are there as well as a nice selection of main dishes that vary from day to day and day to night. A standby is the broasted chicken with is excellent. Usually there are some child friendly chicken... More

Nice ambiance in a clean, modern building. This is a steakhouse but most people getting the all you can eat buffet. My wife got the buffet and thought the salads were the best things there. Salads were very good, but everything else on the buffet was mediocre. I had a strip steak and it was prepared as ordered. Service was... More

We visit the Manhattan every year for a family lunch the day after Thanksgiving. We have found that the variety of food in the buffet is enough for even the pickiest family member to find something they'll like and if they want they can order off the menu. My favorite is their broasted chicken which is always delicious. The reasonable... More

The buffet had a good selection, unfortunately the meat all dry and tough. The price was great and many things on the buffet were good but I have had better. Staff was friendly and it was clean.

It is a busy restaurant and finding anything to eat on the buffet can be a challenge. The service was very slow. I have not ordered off the menu so I can't give you any help on that.

We took a large group here and the staff was very accomodating. The atmosphere was nothing out of the ordinary, but was relaxing and pleasant. We all had the supper buffet. The choices were a little limited when compared to a larger restaurant, but the food on the buffet was very good. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes were especially... More
