Ate at this restaurant last wk while traveling thru. When I mentioned to a friend I was going there, she said Wow, has an interesting reputation. So we were a little skeptical but now I'm a believer. sat on the porch; best burger ever, 8 oz. Server was great as well. Highly recommend for a casual meal.

The food was excellent. We took a chance since we wanted to get back on highway and this was convenient, but what a nice surprise. We e each ordered one of the cod dinners and it was fabulous. Same with strawberry shortcake and apple crisp. The servers were so accommodating at such a busy time. Monkey farm is extremely casual.... More

The waitress was great, very friendly and conversed easily with us, she even 'got' our quirky humour right away and joined in . We did have a bit of a wait for our order but it was worth it, the...

Hands down, the best Broiled Flounder and Apple Crisp I've had in this side of the New England States. Thank you, guys, for making my unplanned stop (traffic was a standstill nightmare on I-95) in Old Saybrook a memorable, lighthearted and fun one. Who would have thought a local bar, past 10:00 p.m. on Sunday night, would be serving great... More

We had the hot lobster roll, a pastrami - Reuben and a 1/2 pound cheeseburger. The fries were abundant. The side of sold slaw - tasty! Plentiful portion of pickles! We stopped after the lunch...

Great bar food, VERY casual atmosphere and the friendliest wait staff around. Hesitant to order seafood at a bar, but the linguini with white clam sauce was best I ever had! So many clams...even my husband commented.

After exploring the area and hitting a few wineries we needed FOOD! Lucky for us it was mother's day and we didn't want to wait over an hour to eat so we stopped into the Monkey Farm knowing we just wanted some bar food. We sat in the enclosed porch area and the friendly waitress took our drink order. We... More
