“Ever had a Bourbon?” This was how my friend invited me to join her husband and her for an afternoon at Roger Monk’s; the rest is very recent history. Located a bit beyond Ann Arbor toward Dixboro and Superior Township, Roger Monk’s is a quaint place that you could easily mistake for a residence. It waxes casual during an afternoon,... More

We went here for their burgers, which used to be good. The apathetic waitress delivered the kid's burger to my husband (meant for my daughter). Meanwhile, my daughter had asked for lettuce and tomatoes and the hamburger came with neither. Then my husband's burger arrived. It was the same small size as my daughter's burger. He ordered in medium rare... More

WE had dinner outside on the "terrace" a few nights ago before the temperature heated up. Lovely to sit outside as daylight waned with friends. Never rushed here. Modest menu but I always find something I want to eat. Hamburgers and selection of sides, great. I had the savory bread pudding and the African Peanut soup. Fabulous, both. Service was... More

We had a large party of ten including a toddler. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and agreed we would all return. They have a very interesting menu that is unique but also delicious. We ate outside. The building itself is becoming a little in need of repairs. Most of our party had hamburgers and enjoyed everything. Service was very good also!

Comfortable place. Fireplace creates a nice feeling. Food is good. Service is good. A little overpriced, but not horribly. Most people in our group cleaned their plates. Menu is a little hard to read; cute names with the actual food decription in the fine print. We went after the Michigan/MSU game. I found it odd that he place was not... More

Once a formal restaurant in the Village of Dixboro, it is now casual and unpretentious. With a wide selection of burgers, a new menu, it will surprise you. Maybe a bit more pricey than you might expect for a burger, yet they are delicious. It is a comfortable place with a touch of history. Charming, old-fashioned, like something new from... More

We eat at Roger Monk's once in a while, when we want to avoid the U-Mich football crowds in Ann Arbor. Roger Monk's is more of a 'Townie' place, meaning it doesn't cater to the young adult crowd. When I go there, I expect a good burger and a good beer, and that's what I get. The burgers are 1/2-lb,... More

This place is a joke. The owner / manager does not belong in the hospitality business. They are rude and disrespectful. Their kitchen is disgusting. Extremely dirty. Their dishes, glasses and silverware are gross. Their food WILL make you sick!!! Perfect example of a Kitchen Nightmare.

this is an example of a restaurant which has many lavishly described dishes on its menu, which sound good, but when the appetizers and entrees arrived, they were rather non-descript, relatively tasteless offerings. i tried the duck, which was dry and rather bland, served on a chunk of bread pudding. not necessarily a good idea. i should have tried a...

My husband and I visit this restaurant often for one reason--it's close to our house. Its assets are its coziness and a beautiful outdoor setting. Unfortunately, the menu and decor leave lots to be desired. The management has added many new menu items since changing the restaurant's name about a year ago (used to be "The Lord Fox"). Many items... More
