Not your typical tourist place...even better

An interesting place to enjoy a beer, wine, and some interesting twists on normal tavern food. Great burgers, fries, salads and sandwiches. Order at the bar and then served. Good service and atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.

What's not to love about 7 Monks? Great atmosphere, great selection of craft beers, live music (on select nights), a small but tasty menu. 7 Monks is a local favorite hangout, and a sought after destination for beer geeks who visit Traverse City.

Traverse City is blessed with a wonderful selection of brew pubs, 7 Monks Taproom being one of them. Excellent selection of great beers!

Great menu for a taproom! The menu is small, but not your typical boring pub fare. We had the pork nachos for lunch and would go back to try more items! Lots of great local beer on tap ( and a few wines too)!

After dragging my husband to wineries we visited 7 Monks Taproom so he could enjoy a couple local beers. Their beer selection was extensive and our waiter was more than willing to help in the selection based on my husbands tastes. We ordered a vegetable wrap and pretzel bites, both were pleasantly surprising. Having ate at other bars in the... More

And we were pleasantly surprised! We came to visit from Belgium and came up to Traverse City with my parents. We had all three kiddos with us and weren't quite sure what to expect {was it family friendly? Would they balk at that idea of children inside? Etc} but, we saw another family go in with their stroller so in... More

Great atmosphere and terrific staff. Enjoyed the Mawby sparkling from a tapper! Ordered pickled veggies (yum from me, the husband doesn't understand!) and pretzel bites (good but too doughy). Comfortable - and they run the Low Bar which is just downstairs.

Decent food selection. Menu is not that big. Pork nachos are good. Decent pub food. Beer selection is nice. If you like beer you will be able to find something to drink.

A bit on the pricey side for the taproom, but it's a very nice place. We dropped $80 for a family of four. Solid selection of taps. Wish they had a little more descriptive menu for the taps. Nice atmosphere inside.

Really cool decor. However, the reason to go is for the food. The monk and cheese was delicious as was the European grilled cheese. When I did not care for either of the intriguing soups that were on the daily special, the staff was very accomodating at providing a non- standard alternative. They were able to substitute the pretzel bites... More
