It's all about the Mussels!

I've only been once to this local Merchantville hangout but I can't wait to get back to taste more of their menu. We had 3 of their mussel dishes out of 6 and all of them were fabulous! Great flavors and the sauces were dip worthy! Seems like a nice neighborhood place for a drink and a meal... read more

Friendly local tavern, food is good. We eat here on a regular basis. We loved every dish we ever had there, with one exception - stay away from the fish tacos! They're made with salmon, which normally I love but not in this dish. That being said, the only other negative is that the drinks are very expensive. Therefore I... More

If you like beer on tap this is the place. They have so many they hand you a small book of the list. I enjoyed the Stone milk porter. We ordered Honey and Hot wings and the fish tacos that were the special of the day. We both enjoyed the tacos. My hubby enjoyed the wings very much but they... More

Love the Blue Monkey Tavern!!!! Stopped in with my wife and sons yesterday after a Sky Zone session and a stop at Whole Foods. We walked up the steps and into the door where we were warmly greeted and told we could sit anywhere. Took our seats and promptly ordered our drinks. Fried pickles were on the Specials Menu so...

I live in the area and have been meaning to try this place for years. I finally went last night for dinner and was not disappointed. We were seated and served quickly. I enjoyed the Blue Monkey Burger with an of bacon as my topping and it was delicious! The ingredients were definitely fresh, and the meat was quality. I'm... More

This is a great place to visit, especially after work for a quality Martini, or taste some of the many beers they have on tap. Food has always been good, and I look forward to my next visit.

A (kind of) sports bar where cheering for your favorite teams is discouraged - they seem to like to keep the noise level down. Good food prepared by classically trained chefs in an almost sports pub atmosphere. Lots of room at the big bar, in addition to high tops and booths. If you're looking for good food and beer and...
