Crab cakes make for a hearty appetizer, elegant entree, and—when fitted with a wax candle—an ideal birthday gift for lonesome hermit crabbers. Celebrate maritime holidays with today's Groupon: for $11, you get $22 worth of crab cakes, seafood, and American fare at Manny's Place, good at all three locations in Philadelphia, Wayne, or Bala Cynwyd.
Boasting an impressive Zagat rating, Manny's Place lavishes its signature crab cakes and delectable menu of seafood and American fare with first-rate ingredients and graceful presentation. Handmade with a savory fusion of 100% jumbo lump crabmeat and fresh roux, Manny's specialty crab cakes coast into palate ports fragrantly broiled or deftly coated in golden panko crumbs ($8.45 each, $10.95 for a combo platter). A slew of hot seafood sandwiches ensconce crab cake, shrimp, oyster, or flounder in a fresh hoagie ($7.95+), and bacon-wrapped scallops stylishly blend the farmstead and sea with the panache of an overalls-clad Poseidon ($9.95 for eight pieces). Water-weary palates can seek refuge in Manny's Famous rotisserie chicken ($8) or chicken potpie ($7.95), taking comfort in the menu's complete lack of additives, preservatives, and peanut-oil pools reflecting the haunting visage of George Washington Carver.
Their interior's spacious and attractive, and service is friendly.Dave H., Yelp, 8/13/10
You get a pretty good amount of crab if you get the fried crab cake hoagie platter, plus fries = lots of fried stuff for lunch.Eugene H., Yelp, 8/26/10
