If you live in town and are hungry and thirsty and want to bump into your peeps, you can't avoid the Blue Monkey. Great tap, expert/satisfying cocktails and heavy duty pub grub. Can't remember anything in particular prolly 'cause I "walked home" (literally & figuratively), Plus its kindof like the anti-Collingswood.....just sayin'

We were not disappointed. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass, which she pronounced yummy on the first bite. I had the meatball parm sandwich, which was tasty and filling. Drinking atmosphere, with a large bar. Probably would return if we are ever back in the area.

My wife and I have eaten at the Blue Monkey several times. Each time it has been a fun experience. There is a bar with a wide assortment of "adult beverages" and their menu is excellent, but what I want to comment on is their black Angus hamburgers. The basic burger is excellent, but when you add mushrooms, cheese (there... More

Love their sandwiches. Waitress was quick and attentive. The food arrives nice and hot. Keep trying different sandwiches and entree's. Never disappointed. Usually I'll stay with a favorite on the menu but decided to try something different each time and loved everything. Drinks are made well also. The restaurant is located in the cute little 1 mile town of Merchantville.... More

I just have to review this restaurant for it's outstanding. A friend took me there last Thursday - not expecting much I was surprised when I found mussels on the menu, but not just one kind, three different ones. I tried two, the one in a beer cream sauce and the Thai Mussels and they were both remarkable. The Filet... More

The Blue Monkey has an extensive menu. Their beer, wine and liquor list is out of this world. The food is really good also. It is a very comfortable atmosphere and the prices are reasonable. I had a burger and it was juicy and delicious. I also had a appetizer of fried pickles off the special menu and they were... More

3/30/2014 A friend wanted to bring me here and I was open to experience anywhere that had a great draft selection. As she promised - the selections of drafts were diverse and I was happy to try a few - meaning 4...LOL As you may have noticed from past reviews - I like a "Hoppy Beer", so they had a... More

The Blue Monkey is a very nice little bar/restaurant in Merchantville, NJ. The majority of the crowd is between 35-55, but some younger ones might be there to enjoy the beers. Word of mouth is rampant as this place is always full on the weekends. Make a reservation! If you do go without a reservation, you may have to wait... More

We stopped here on a Saturday afternoon. The place is very cozy and relaxing. Fantastic draft beer selections. We had the Turkish salad and a Blue Monkey salad. Yeah I know, salad???? But they were great. Not just lettuce bits tossed it a bowl but real time and effort was put into the construction of these things. Excellent. I can't... More
