    Manuel's boasts an extensive beer selection, but you can't beat the deal on $6 pitchers of Miller High Life and Pabst Blue Ribbon. It's also one of the few bars downtown with its own parking lot. Read more

    Get the loaded dogzilla! Its amazing! Laura the waitress is funny, fun loving, and great positive attitude! Also kinda sassy, in a very good way! Plus they have a spot for clergy parking!

    You've gotta try their wings. They'll even serve them to you with no sauce for those darn kids that insist that buffalo wings are "spicy". Manny's has big tables, is kid friendly, and lots of fun.

    Great food & drinks but its really nice to be able to go somewhere at night with no music. You can actually have a conversation over a cocktail without straining your voice and going deaf.

    Popular spot to watch political debates & election results w/ historic roots in politics. Jimmy Carter announced his 1970 bid for GA Governor here & original owner Manny was the 1st CEO of Dekalb Co. Read more

    Atlanta took a deep breath when this Highlands landmark took a hiatus to remodel (i.e., shed 2,000 of its 9,600 square feet), but don’t worry: It’ll be back soon! Read more

    Great service, the best atmosphere...Manuel's is great for small meetings, large events, or just a great meal and a drink or three.

    Love this place. Lots of history. You can stay at the Highland Inn down the street and walk there for supper. Makes for a lovely evening.

    We seriously love Manuel's. Good food. Good people. Good MARTA accessibility via bus 16 (N. Highland or Five Points connection) and bus 102 (Candler Park or North Avenue connection).

    Always a great place for a beer and some GREAT pub food. Also, lots of liberal minded people (actors and politicians) frequent here!

    Try the Reuben - it's grilled and served with kraut and home-made Thousand Island dressing on the side - just like it's supposed to be.

    If right now you are down and out, and feeling really crappy; come to Manuel's Tavern and the staff will make you happy. Art is the bomb.

    Did you know Manuel's has brunch on Saturday and Sunday? Skip all the lines elsewhere and try out the breakfast here!

    Respect your roots: Local folk hero Manuel Maloof was the first CEO of DeKalb County, an activist for the construction of Spaghetti Junction, and founder/owner of Manuel's Tavern.

    Pub food is usually pretty terrible, but at Manny's, that just isn't the case. Try the French Dip or the Fish and Chips. They make a darn good martini too, just don't ask for a Long Island; they don

    Manuel's is Manuel's. Apparently the baby boomers were able to cash their checks at Manuel's on Friday to get their drink on.
