When we, grandma and grandpa, visit our kids and grandkids in Clayotn, we always enjoy the fantastic pizza, salads, and toasted ravioli at Manhattan Cafe. This restaurant is quaint, and decorated in the 60's with lots of memorabilia of St. Louis. You won't be disappointed with the food at Cafe Manhattan....Bob

My wife and I enjoyed lunch at Cafe Manhattan during the week. The restaurant was not crowded and the service was good. The menu at CM has an extensive list of sandwiches and salads. We ordered a tuna salad sandwich and a turkey Rueben. And a malt; a strawberry malt. The food at CM is well prepared from fresh ingredients.... More

Stopped in Saturday evening and had a great experience at Cafe Manhattan. We tried the STL style thin crust pizza with provel cheese. The crust, sauce, and toppings (we had hamburger, mushroom, and fresh garlic) were all great, it was really tasty. Also tried a salad and their Caesar dressing was fantastic, you could really taste the ingredients you want... More

Tiny little eat-in space, larger patio dining options. Counter service was friendly and efficient. Plastic silverware is never a fave of mine personally but it works.

This diner is a throwback to diners of the fifties. Our party of 4 all had burgers, which were done exactly as the should be and served with more fries than you can eat. Service was fast and friendly. A really nice clean diner worth visiting. And priced very reasonable.

At the corner of Wydown and Hanley Roads, just South of Downtown Clayton is a comfortable place to relax and enjoy an "Old fashion burger, fries and a shake"! The food is good and the service was even better! Would like to thank, "Sean" for his service, suggestions and good humor during my recent visit. BTW, I was surprised that... More

Quaint 50's inspired diner near downtown Clayton. Pizza, burgers, salad and milkshakes. Features booths, Elvis record album covers and a counter. Reasonable prices and lots of menu variety.

This was a great, nostalgic visit for me. My best friend and I went to the Lemay Ferry location ALL THE TIME in high school and were really bummed when it closed. Luckily, this place is just like it, right down to the decor. The servers are really friendly, and the food is tasty. It's a very relaxed environment, and... More

Cool joint with Elvis everywhere! But the homestyle diner food is totally worth it! Any of the sandwiches are fabulous and you cannot go wrong.

Travel back in time to this 50s diner. Atmosphere was great and the menu had many choices. Known for their hamburgers, one person in our group ordered the lasagne and loved it. Great place to eat.

Thank Mary B
