great meal

We stopped at roger monks by chance, because another restaurant had a wait. It was a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious. I just wish that they had more business. This is a hidden gem. sr

Pretty good food, a little dark made it a bit difficult to read the menu. :) The staff was very friendly. Interesting place, if I ever make it back to the Ann Arbor area, I would like to see this place in the day time.

Four of us went to Roger Monk's for dinner on Friday evening (3/27/15). We have been there several times, but it was the 1st time for our friends. The food was very good (all of us ordered burgers. My husband & my favorite is the Lucille burger which was cooked perfectly. The only negatives were the very slow service and... More

When I travel I always like to go off the beaten path, this place was very cool located off Plymouth Road in the North eastern part of the U of M campus. It is based on an old school house, the atmosphere and the food were really good. We have young kids and I did not see a kids menu... More

The owner, Eric, presents a wonderful menu, with the casual flair of an Ann Arbor pub. We enjoy the great service with carring wait staff. The menu offers original soups that are allways very tasty. Cusine ranges from great Kobe beef hamburgers and salads to specials of the day. Some dishes border on gourmet. The country setting features a 100... More

I remember when this place used to be The Lord Fox, which I recall to be a more upscale and formal dining experience than Roger Monk's is now. This place has everything it needs to be a smash success, but it's either overlooked or looked down upon. Probably a bit of both. The physical setting and building are as lovely... More

Such a cool location--crazy old farmhouse with tons of history. Menu is very interesting--lots of interesting flavors and combinations, kinda fancy without being intimidating, still very casual. Great beer selection, never crowded.

“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
