Great food & beer selection

The Blue Monkey is a frequented restaurant of mine. The beer selection is always plentiful. There's so many taps, it's hard not to find a beer you will enjoy. The drafts rotate very frequently too. The fried pickle appetizer is one of my favorites. Recommends on food: warm spinach salad... read more

I'd heard from 2 ppl. 1 beforehand and 1 in the restaurant about the owner. And I also read here about the owner. From these descriptions, I spotted the owner behind the bar. & hoped there would be no interaction. No, this was not the case. When my SIL requested to see a manager as the food was taking too...

Stumbled across a gem with this place. Business traveler out driving around looking for a pub for a quick dinner and came across the Blue Monkey. Old pub matching the charm of the small town Main St it's located on with extremely friendly staff and awesome food. The portabella chicken appetizer is perfection, almost a main course in itself and... More

One of favorite places to visit. Never been disappointed. Only problem you'll have is deciding what to chose for your meal.

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
