Perry Hall's Manhattan Grill Closure Possibly Temporary

The restaurant and bar in Honego Village Center may reopen, according to the management company.

Manhattan Grill, an active restaurant and bar in Honeygo Village Center, closed its doors last weekend—but the center's management company said its fate is still uncertain. 

Chesapeake Realty Partners confirmed that the restaurant's closure may only be temporary. The company offered no explanation for the shut-down. 

Megan Knauer of the nearby shop Carlyn Smith Creations said she was disappointed by the closure. 

"The food was great. I'm always disappointed to see anything bad happen to a little business around here," Knauer said. 

The restaurant's website remains live and states that it opened in 2004. 

One Perry Hall resident contacted Patch after he redeemed a $25 off certificate for the restaurant on Restaurants.com, which still lists the business as open. 

Other residents also shared their surprise over the closure on Perry Hall Patch's Facebook page

Stop shopping the young trash in with cheap drink specials who like to fire weapons at one another and maybe you will stay open.

Well that is sad as I just bought a certificate on Restaurant.com yesterday as a Christmas gift!! What a waste.

I hope this works out - I love it there.

The service is terrible. The food is unimaginative. The staff is lazy. I have been waiting around seven years for this to happen and hope and it does not open again. Let's bring in a legitimate restaurant that has a good menu, kitchen, and staff. I will say that there were a couple good meals and fun times there but on the whole my experience there was underwhelming. I stopped going there entirely this year. Unfortunately, it was only one of a handful of restaurants in walking distance and became a destination by default or boredom rather than enjoyment.

Several years ago, I bought a gift certificate at the Honeygo Cafe, they were closed within a few days. Talk about stealing from the public.

To master p: Its always disappointing to hear bad things about restaurants to me because I've worked in one my whole life. But to continuously go somewhere after you've had numerous bad experiences is like puling teeth for fun. There's plenty of bars in the area. And to have a customer come in every time and complain no matter what is what makes staff bad. To ca vidal: When u run a business like a restaurant, every ones money is green.

There is a reason that Chopstix and Liberatore's are thriving. Professional management, quality product, clean, inviting atmosphere. That was not the case at Manhattan Grill.

We went there once when they first opened. The service was terrible and the food had no taste and the prices high. A more reasonably priced friendly place is needed. We love Chopstix! Liberatore's is not as good as when they first opened. Use to do the carry-out alot, but the prices for what you are now getting are way to high and it is starting to look junkie on the carry-out side.

Stop serving minors and others til they can't drive or walk home and maybe you would service.

I agree with some of the reviews here. My experience (once) with them was this: 1) mediocre food overpriced 2) sllllow service 3) If you're going to gloss your restaurant after Manhattan, then you better show New York sports on your TVs. I went in there looking to catch the Giants game and what did I see? Ravens. What the hell is that mess?? Take the Manhattan out of your name, you're an embarrassment to the borough all around. Call yourself the Raven Inn or something.

@ Tim. I kinda see what you mean, we went into an "American" bar in Barcelona and no one spoke English. Then again, you ain't in New York. Your in Bawlmer Hon! You're gonna see the Ravens.

My family eats at Liberatore's at Honeygo Village Center. Great staff, great food and an awesome Happy Hour. I hope Liberatore's stay around for a long long time.

Aweful food with no flavor. I went there only to watch Ravens game but I always ordered something safe but they couldn't get the basics right so no way I would take my wife there for dinner after my trials. Take Manhattan out of your name as you are an embarrassment to the city of good eating, let's get a real restaurant in that space.
