On our first night at Atlantic Beach, my husband and I went to Monkey Bar and Grill on a whim. The place was nicely decorated in the usual bar fashion. The wait staff was friendly and very efficient. Both of us had the Reuben sandwich with chips and a pickle on the side. The sandwich was scrumptious, the portion was... More

Dropped into this place after the movies. What a great find. I'd estimate it's 75/25 locals/tourists. It offers an exceptional beer selection (including Dale's on tap) and really good (authentic?) bar food. The wings and burgers are said to the best that ABNC has to offer. Want casual? Head over to the Monkey Bar & Grill.

I suppose the word is out. This resturant located on the Island near Food Lion is a local favorite, with good service, a wide variety of food which makes it appropriate for kids and the hungriest tourist. Locals love wings Wednesday (evening) and daily specials

Great wings. Excellent service. We have been three times in the past few weeks. It gets better each time. Can't wait to try their steaks.

Monkey Bar has always been a quick go to destination for good food and good service. We have not been in a good while and it now has a hostess station. Had to wait for someone to seat us for about 2 minutes, and she did not welcome us. Our waitress was friendly and a good waitress. We ordered 2... More

Despite there being very few customers in the bar at 8 pm, the service was very slow. The server disappeared into the kitchen or behind the bar in the next room and made herself too scarce for drink and food orders and settling up the bill. The food was ok.

This place has decent food, a large bar, and friendly staff. The dining area is way too dark. Good salads and burgers.

Food was great! Everything was hot and fresh. Service was not that good. Finished the last half of our meals without any thing to drink. Would try again as the food really was good. Hoping service was just a fluke.

If you are looking for average food for average prices this is the place. I was disappointed with the food and the service. My entrée came out lukewarm and had to ask twice to refill my beverage. I ordered a brownie ala mode for dessert. When it arrived at my table the ice cream has melted and was running with... More
