Good, dark.

The food here is fresh and tasty. The servers are friendly and efficient, the location is very convenient. My only complaint is that the place is too dark. Needs better lighting.

We dropped into the Monkey Bar & Grill during the late afternoon this past week. The place wasn't very busy, and they have a lot of seating. The menu is large and has a wide variety of food. Even a picky eater should have no problem finding something they like. The food was just average. My tuna sandwich was dry... More

Eaten here many times. Beverages are always cold, service is very good. Food is a good value and have different menu items. This time here some of our family food was a little over cooked. Still tasted good, just over cooked.

The food was very good. The service was a little slow but I think it was because our waitress had an issue with a customer on the phone. Others have mentioned it is not bright inside which was very true. It was obvious it was frequented by lots of locals which I always take as a positive.

This was our first visit, the food was fine, the service good and the price average for the location. So we'll be back in the future.

We ate here our first night at the beach. The staff was great and for the money the food was good. I recommend their shrimp and grits. They had a mushroom onion sauce that was heavenly. My husband had a crab cake which was fair. We both ordered drinks and our bill was just under $40. Out of all the... More

Very impressed by the quality of the food and the staff. Crystal was our server and was awesome! I had a delicious tuna steak sandwich and my wife had the crab cake. Great atmosphere for kids, young adults and elderly people. Make sure you try this place out when in Atlantic beach!
