    I always wonder about that one too.

    It seems to get mainly rave reviews but then the people who aren't wowed by it seem to be those comparing it to Ruth's Chris and Mortons v those who love it comparing it to the chain restaurants which aren't going to wow anyone steak wise anyway.

    Manny's. We've been once, years ago. It's a favorite local place, mostly for older folks. We didn't really care for it at all (and obviously haven't been back).

    Now, there are LOADS of other folks who like it, many of them British visitors. So, as Keith indicated, if you rather like the chain places, you'll probably like this place. If you don't care for the Outback's of the world, then you'll probably not be too thrilled.

    Chili's is ok, as long as the servers aren't rushing you like crazy. It's a fairly decent place to go for basic food. We like Long Horn for the same reasons. Good, predictable, nothing fancy, but if they do it wrong, they make it right.

    A place we'd gone off of, because it had fallen off sharply in service and quality was Seasons 52. We went to lunch there yesterday and they've really come back to being a lovely place. The place was clean and atmosphere was nice, unlike the loud and terrible live music they used to do in the lounge. So loud you couldn't hear. The service is very good, and the server was very knowledgeable. The food was very nice. I had rainbow trout and it was delicious. Herself had a bison burger and declared it the same. We each had one of their little desserts and they were yummy! So, we'll put them back on our list.

    I'd say give Manny's a try if you've not been, but don't go out of your way to go there, and don't expect Ruth's Chris or Morton's or Charley's Steakhouse by ANY means!






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    Ah Manny's - the day I broke my tooth!!

    We went for the first time last summer. I was just about to say to DH "this is the best pork steak I've ever eaten" when my tooth broke! At first I thought it was a piece of bone in the meat but alas I was about to have a month long holiday of not smiling for the camera.

    However, we are going back this summer. The food was good but DH stilll way prefers Longhorns for his steak. It was very busy I remember and we had to wait about 40 minutes for a table. There seemed to be quite a few locals there and we got chatting to some of them. I think Monday/Tuesday is their kids eat free night and another evening you get two for the price of one on fajitas.

    The building is quite old and not too impressive from the outside. The food is reasonably priced and the service was good even though it was packed to the roof.

    I'm very fussy about my steak as well I haven't had a bad steak at the Longhorn in Winter Garden, maybe because it's not in a tourist area.

    The best steak I ever had is still the NY Strip I had in the old Pebbles at The Crossroads. No need for a steak knife, it was like butter and soooooo tasty. I loved that restaurant.
