Great Hamburgers Once Again

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.

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

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
