“Never going there again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

place is joke and will never step foot in that place again. My hope is that someone with credibility takes it over and manages it properly as it should be.

“Great overall experience!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

Had a very nice dinner with my family. Kids could enjoy tv while we waited for our food ( wasn't a long wait). Clams were a great deal and good drink specials. Impressive microbrew bottle list. Server was very accommodating and Pleasent. Would recommend to anyone looking for great food with enjoyable atmosphere.

“Good bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

I like the atmosphere in the monkey better than any of the other local bars. The bar good it good... Cheesesteaks, burgers, fries, etc. I tried their dinners (steak) once and was disappointed. Stick with typical pub fare and you won't be let down.

“Nice, but awfully typical”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

Sports bars in eastern PA are a dime a dozen, and the Blue Monkey has done little to stand out. But their atmosphere and pub fare are OK, and they have little direct competition in the Catty area. Most places nearby are absolute dives, and the Blue Monkey is not. Mostly a 20 to 30 something crowd of working class, down to earth folks, it can be tons of fun on game night. And there is always stuff to do there...shuffleboard, darts, drinking games, and they have decent specials every night of the week. Microbrews on tap are not a unique selection, but at least they have them. Staff always seems overworked. Food is decent, not great, not bad. Burgers are a bit overseasoned and they like to praise their use of crab in dips and on cheesesteaks...but I had both and wasn't impressed. Stuff tasted processed and like it sat around or was frozen.

Honestly, I only go because I live right over the bridge in Coplay, but I wouldn't make a special trip when it's identical to 99% of sports bars out there. But it's not bad, and I go about once a month.
