We have a wide variety of food tastes, and this place satisfied all of them. I think the owners are hispanic, but they offer a lot of dishes that span the globe. Nothing too exotic, but a nice mix with good flavor and value. Our family of 6 ate for $70 (with tip no alcohol). I highly recommend.

This sounded like a fun place to have a meal while we were in Hot Springs. Best thing was the Monkey parking sign buried in the trees by where we parked. The menu is a tad all over the place. Food was okay but nothing to write home about. I think we waited longer for our check that we did... More

It's not horrible food but need to hire more staff. Staff needs to learn the difference between well done and med. well steak...had my food redone. Did not have Smirnoff Ice nor did they have Shiner Bock beers...which sucked. But since we stayed at a nearby hotel did get a 10% off on our ticket so that wasn't bad. LOVE... More

We had a party of 6 with 2 kids on a Wednesday night. Decor was nice. It is a kid-friendly restaurant (noisy), but service was slow. Portions were generous, and most of the food was good. Chicken taquitos appetizer was not very good (soggy and not very much chicken).

Bleu Monkey Grill is not worth the Money! Ordered the Beer battered fish and chips, fish had a bleach taste, typically used to salvage fish past it's experiation date. Also, had the shrimp quesadilla, had extra strong fish taste and smell. Explained to waitress we could not eat the fish, ask the Manager about the situation, and He gave us... More

If you are the gambling type that likes to lose, swing by the Blue Monkey. Horrible food! Joey, the owner, feels it's a gamble to eat at his restaurant. Unfortunately we had to learn this the hard way. Needless to say Joey was rude because we sent our food back due to our platters oozing with disgustingness. Don't be take... More

A great funky place. I had the razorback burger, it was fantastic. My wife had the fish and chips which was great as well. A must go to spot in hot springs.

First night in Hot Springs and after reading some good reviews, we decided to try the Bleu Monkey Grill. We left pretty disappointed with the food and service (and aren't these the very things you want to be great at a restaurant?) All I'm saying is, try at your own risk...could be great for you, but just so, so for... More
