Service and quality of food served was not the best when this Yardarm and Monkey Bar were open. Hopefully, with totally new construction and completion they will do better for the restaurants. It will be a while before they are re-opened.

Beer is cold. Food is mediocre. Staff was pleasant. You can see “monkey island” from here and is the reason we had lunch. We had sliders, chicken tenders and turkey club. Sliders were good and the rest wasn’t terrible🤷‍♂️
