We found monkey farm on trip advisor. The location is perfect for passerby's and locals. We were greeted promptly and serviced very professionally. Cash only. But very reasonably priced. 25.00 for two sandwiches and two fountain drinks.

One of the local landmarks in OS. Food is ok and the atmosphere is certainly unique! Rustic interior compliments the rustic patrons.

Great place to grab some of the BEST wings I have had. A lot of the locals go here so if you sit at the bar you can find out what is happening in town. If you go here you MUST try the wings. I love wings and have had wings all across the U.S. and they are so good.... More

The best lunch in Old Saybrook. Don't judge a restaurant by its cover. Stop and go inside for a real treat. Those in the know in Old Saybrook love the Monkey Farm. Thought of as a biker hangout, not so. Anyway ay lunch. Don't miss areal treat for the whole family.

If you're not a local dirtbag don't expect to get any service and once you finally fight to get it don't be sad when the food wasn't worth it anyway! Not happy

Some of the best lobster rolls you'll find anywhere--CT or RI style. Tuna also always superior. Very casual atmosphere. All cash, no cards but ATM on site. Very extensive menu that they manage to keep the quality up on just about every item. Service is very, very good, If you are looking for upscale environment, look elsewhere. If you are... More

Haven't been in this place in over 40 years. I still remember throwing darts and drinking beer here. Can't say that I every ate here back then. In the last 20 years or so, my wife and I always say that we should try this place as we pass by time and time again. Well, after returning from a long... More

Friends suggested that we gather for Hot Lobster Rolls at the Monkey Farm to celebrate Memorial Day. What a treat! Don't be put off by the name. There's lots of history there and the food speaks volumes. Three of us had Lobster Rolls. Huge portions accompanied by fresh cole slaw and home made onion rings. Ad a beer or two... More

This was hands down one of the best meals I've eaten a very long time. We were a little skeptical to stop in because the restaurant was just off the main road and looked crowded, but figured if it's crowded it must be good. SO happy we went with that logic. I ordered the special of the day, a grilled... More

Great lunch but a really long wait for everything - not sure I would return in the evening if there was this much of a wait for lunch
