We were seated pretty quickly but it took 1/2 hr to get a drink from the bar and all the server could say was "it's not my fault, it's the bartender". After finally receiving our drinks the server took our order but again the food took forever and all he could say was "it's not my fault, it's the kitchen".... More

We dined at the Blue Monkey at lunch today. I enjoyed eating at a place that was new to me. Service was great and waitress was knowledgeable concerning menus. The lettuce wraps were great! The only downside to them was that some pieces of the lettuce were too small to use as wrap. My husband enjoyed his Cuban sandwich and... More

I was really excited for the Buffalo Bites, but they weren't very well executed. The won ton was too crunchy and the inside was dry. The onion rings were made out of the outside of the onion close to the skin, I couldn't even rip them apart with my teeth. Fried Mac and cheese balls were good and the avocado... More

My favorite thing about the Bleu Monkey is the huge variety of menu options to choose from. I love their fish tacos, sun-dried tomato pasta, burgers, and grilled steak salad. The portions are large and the quality is always great. Service is typically very attentive and the atmosphere is typical for a sports bar. The noise level can be a... More

The menu reminds me of the menu at the Cheesecake Factory but with better prices. If you want pasta, it's there. Asian? Yes. Hamburgers, seafood, chicken - they have all that, too. Great bar food if you want to sit and watch a game. I had the spicy chicken burger and loved it. My son had the Philly Cheesesteak. Husband... More

I have yet to find a bad item on the menu. The Bleu Monkey Shrimp is my favorite. I go there quite often.

I loved the calamari. My kids liked the Mac-n-cheese bites. My napa chicken was so tasty. My husband didn't care for his burger. My daughter had shrimp po boy and it was huge. Overall not to bad. Our waitress kept our drinks refilled which is a big plus.

Food was very tasty, wide selection of meal choices, appetizer bread with olive oil & seasoning was a nice treat. I look forward to returning to the Hot Springs area and eating here again. Pleasant and professional wait staff.

My Husband and I recently ate lunch at the Bleu Monkey Grill and it was so good. We had the calamari for appetizer and it was the best I have had anywhere. Lightly battered, crispy and very tender. I ate the fish tacos and my Husband had the grilled skirt steak (I think it is called carniasada(sp?) both dinners came... More

You never know when you get to a restaurant if they will be accommodating to a large, boisterous group...but they were AMAZING! We were seated right away, all of our orders were processed immediately, and they worked incredibly hard to make sure that our family could sit near enough to each other to shout at the end of the tables....
