Iconic Toledo Restaurant to close after more than 100 years of business
Mancy’s Ideal Restaurant regretfully announces the closure of its location on Monroe Street, situated within the Hobby Lobby Plaza. After careful deliberation, the Mancy family has made the difficult decision not to renew the lease for the establishment. Consequently, the restaurant will cease operations on January 13th, 2024.
The management wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the loyal patrons who have supported the Monroe Street location throughout its operation. Recognizing the impact on its dedicated staff, Mancy’s Ideal is pleased to announce that all employees have been offered positions at other restaurants within the Mancy’s Ideal family.
News of the closure was confirmed on the restaurants Facebook page which said: ‘We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our exceptional staff whose hard work and “big smiles” made every visit to Mancy’s Ideal memorable. To our loyal patrons, we extend our gratitude for your support of Mancy’s Ideal. Your patronage at Mancy’s Ideal and all of our restaurants is the only reason we are entering our 103rd year in business in our beloved community.’

The restaurant was founded by cousins Gus Mancy and Nicholas Graham as The Ideal, a 24-hour diner on Phillips Avenue. Today, the third generation of the Mancy family owns and operates the restaurant, which has become a staple of the Toledo dining scene. Mancys is known for its delicious steaks and seafood at affordable prices.
