I realize that Blue Monk is in Buffalo and not everyone has had the chance to have a real bucket of Moules (Mussels) and Frites (fries) in Belgium or France. I have. And while the Blue Monk does a good job of Moules and Frites, Buffalo ain't Belgium. But that's okay. I picked the mussels cooked with white wine, garlic... More

We love to seek out restaurants/pubs with great beer lists and unique menus. Blue Monk completely delivered, along with great service! We were able to enjoy a range of beer from stout to sours (hard to find), as well as excellent (wish I had a dish right now!) frites, mussels and a truly perfect grilled cheese. It's hard to glorify... More

in town for a wedding and was recommended to this place. Hubby had the Pumpkin beer and I had a whiskey. Large selection of each, about 30 each to choose from! Calamari for an appetizer, it was not too breaded, which I liked. We ate some dinner and had the burger with egg and bacon! Yummy! and the salmon dish... More

Our server was great. I enjoyed my first beer but found it to be rather strong for a warm fall afternoon and asked him to recommend something lighter and more "summery" for my second; the beer that he suggested was exactly what I wanted. I had an onion soup which was delicious and my friend and I split a beet... More

This restaurant is located in a cute area of town. We went on a Sunday night and were seated right away. Service was fast and our waitress was willing to help us choose a beer option. The food was okay and I was satisfied with everything. I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich and my husband had a duck burger. His... More

Thoroughly enjoyable food, fries and beer, but the service can get a bit overwhelmed when crowded...

The go-to hangout when meeting up with Buffalo friends--mostly for the duck frites (our friends' company is a close second--that's how good they are!) Can get loud on Fridays and Saturday evenings, limited parking (be prepared to walk!), but overall worth it! The mussel pots are delicious menu options as well.

Yummmmmy!! - Monk’s Mac & Cheese maybe the best on Mother Earth! My wife and I love this place. This is a Hipster joint and I am as far from hip as they come (according to all three of my kids…). But the reason I love this place is because of the amazing HUGE selection of draft beer and amazing... More

Was here with a bunch of friends - loved the beer menu. Also enjoyed the unique pub menu that accompanied it as well. Atmosphere was very cool and obviously the location on Elmwood is fantastic. Hope to go back soon!
