Went there with friends because we hadn't been here for years. The lobster rolls and the swordfish dinners were good but we could never find our server for drink refills. She never came by to check on us- ever! We ended up telling the food delivery person that we wanted our bill. Sitting in the bar might be different than... More

Ordered hot lobster roll with onion rings. Good amount of meat, prepared very well. Onion rings were good, not great. Fish & chips were good. Prices were good. Service was slow. Will go again.

The food is always good at the Monkey Farm, the bar busy with locals, who make the atmosphere friendly and sociable ...lunch specials always rock!

Meal was good. We were vacationing to a new area for us. Waitress was either not trained or simply not friendly towards new faces. After meals were presented, she did not check on us, and with french fries and onion rings, we would like to have had ketchup. We had to go looking for the waitress. After the bill was... More

Will I rush back ? No. Will I come back? yes. Service was decent, but check came out very slow. Fun atmosphere in September on the porch - very casual. Lobster rolls were decent, Reuben with corn beef was very good. Teriyaki wings ok.

I went with some friends and sat at the bar. Our bartender, Bill, was very serious about his job, but smiled by the time we left. We got chicken wings and salad, with drinks. The double fried wings were delicious and the salad was nice and crisp. The place was busy and lots going on around the bar. We could... More

Thanks for the kind words ! Cash only for 48 years has worked for us and the reason we can keep prices lower that most. Enjoy the rest of this beautiful summer. Laura More

The food is always delicious and the staff is great!! It's a great hometown bar. Wonderfully fun place to be during "chili-fest" and torchlight parade night!

This is a wonderful little nook on the edge of 154 and Old Saybrook's Main St. The restaurant and bar sit in great big, historic house with a wrap around porch. We ate here one Sunday night in part because it closes a little later than some of the other restaurants in the area. It's classic diner or pub food... More

I have been here several times. The service is quick and they have very good food! Instead of being in the bar area, we sit on the enclosed porch.
