Good food, bad experience

Monument has delicious homemade lemonade and burgers but last time I was there my mom found a hair in her soup and did not feel like eating anymore. I will definitely consider that experience if we ever decide to go again.

The Monument is always a fun experience, from the herb and vegetable gardens to the art deco façade, to the beautiful art deco interior and the adjoining farm-to-table market.

Chalkboard specials and desserts are excellent, especially the Monument Chocolate Pie!

We went on a Friday with our children for dinner. Everybody else's food turned out fine except my order. They messed up eggs and the French toast was soggy and mushy. I would probably go back but won't order the French toast again.

First of all, in fairness, we only use this as a breakfast location, and occasionally lunch. However, they have added wine and beer to the menu, so we may try dinner there sometime. Their breakfast menu has been simplified, eliminating such favorites as chicken fried steak sides, corn beef hash, and even their really good hash browns. They now offer... More

We feel the menu is very limited. Breakfast is o. k., but they only serve peppered bacon, so beware. Have been back twice in hopes for a better menu, but it hasn't changed. Will not be going back.

The food was tasty. We went late one night and enjoyed the meal. It was moderately priced. We will return for another visit.

This is one of the first places we went to while we were in the process of buying a home in Georgetown. We loved the uniqueness of the menu being written on a blackboard and the hominess of the place. The breakfasts are the best meal there.

I Eat here every once in a while and am never disappointed. Not cheap but many of the ingredients are organic and some are from local farmers. Clean place
