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!

We ate dinner our first night, and it was standard fare. My wife had a chicken salad plate, and i had fish. Both were good sized dinners, and we had friendly prompt service. Worth a visit on our return to the area.

This is a great local hangout. Just sitting and listening to some of the locals was very entertaining, much better than listening to the yuppie clientele at the other end of the island. After reading some of the reviews I expected this palce to be a little more of a "dive". But I was susuprised. It was spacious and clean.... More

Tried Monkey's upon our first day at Atlantic Beach, review's said good food but disappointing service. Upon entry we weren't to sure, you enter threw the bar then to the resteraunt side. Was a bit dark and the monkey decour was very overdone and outdated, but upon getting the first of our order spirits were raised. Very good sweet tea... More

Good food and great service with a smile. The steak and cheese sandwich is our favorite. The soup is delicious as are the onion rings.

We like to go here for their burgers, shrimp basket and hush puppies. There fries are about some of the best ever. They have specials daily and we have never had a bad meal - ever and we have been going there for as long as I can remember. Soups are good as well. We go about once a month.... More
