I have been here several times and it has a great patio which keeps bringing me back. Beer selection is good and the food is fine - not fine dining but it serves the purpose and when you want fries with your beer then this is the place. Service can be spotty so you have to make sure to get... More

If you like beer in small glasses, this spot is for you. The food is barely acceptable. Will never go back!

In my ratings 3=meets expectations. 4=exceeds, 5= blown away. I rarely give 5. Expectations are based on experience with similar establishments at similar price point. I've been here maybe a dozen times since it opened and I can finally recommend this place wholeheartedly. Beer selection has always been good, with a heavy emphasis on fairly local stuff. They're serving their... More

Went with my husband and daughters to sample some unique beers with appetizers. Beer and food were great a little pricey to other places but worth it to go.

A great local eatery and bar that is located right on the creek in downtown Martinez. Hosted by a group of very nice folks, they always greet us warmly and welcome us as if we are family. The food is good (nacho's, taco's, burgers and salads) and the beer is always cold. CMTR has a large number of micro-beers on... More

Creek Monkey has excellent potential, but it's not quite there yet. The beer is tasty, but expensive, food is okay, but not great - the sauce on the chicken wings is too thin. Every time I've been in Creek Monkey and that's about a dozen times, I have to carefully watch the bill because most of the time the charges... More

Sorry, but worst fish and chips I have ever had with greasy thick batter and 3 small pieces of fish. Coleslaw was extra and expensive. Shoestring fries were edible. My husband's burger was average, better than the fish and chips. Service was friendly. There were lots of locals there but the food was overpriced and below par compared to other... More
