Ernie's Food and Spirits offers a unique dining experience, featuring exceptional cuisine, the highest service standards, an extensive list of truly spectacular wine, as well as a notably impressive, awe-inspiring collection of fine spirits.
We are located in the small central valley town of Manteca, California, which is conveniently central to Modesto, Stockton and Tracy. Unassuming from the outside, our doors open to a sleek, contemporary environment, inspired by some of the finest restaurants around the world.
Our menu features the absolute best Choice and Prime cuts of beef, in addition to Kobe style beef. We also serve the highest quality organic Chicken, grass fed Lamb and Kurobuta Pork, as well as sustainable seafood and the freshest produce available.
Our menu will tantalize the palate with our creatively inspired, modern versions of traditional menu items. Ernie’s opened its doors on December, 15, 2012 and couldn’t be more thrilled to hit our 6th year mark this upcoming holiday season!
