Atmosphere is definitely part of the restaurant experience. Whenever I go out to a restaurant I like the overall atmosphere to feel comfortable and inviting. This restaurant just did not have that. This restaurant did have tasty food. There were four of us and we all enjoyed the quality of our food. We also enjoyed the portion sizes. The $8 shrimp basket, with 15 pieces, will not disappoint. I do recommend Mannies if you are in the area. It is just not a place at which I would care to just hang.
