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

We visit the Blue Monkey frequently for dinner and great drinks. The burgers are always great but my favorite is the Monkey Salad. It's a delicious dish with chicken, shrimp, cheese, egg, and fresh greens. Your choice of dressing comes on the side and there is a generous amount so you won't need to ask for extra. The drinks are... More

Reading the reviews for rude and horrible treatment in June and July make me wonder if this is the same restaurant. We first went to this restaurant in the fall (we're relatively new to the area) and have been several times since. Each time we have gone we have been very well. After our first meal there we commented to... More

Don't know how anyone could write anything but a glowing review for this amazing bar/restaurant. Have enjoyed going there for the last 4 years and never disappointed in the food. The wait service and the owner are vigilant in assuring that you are enjoying your experience. Creative gourmet food that is surprising as a reasonable price. The chef is as... More
