During the day when its not busy its a good bar, we thought the food was fine for this kind of bar, the seafood was fresh. In the evening though it was busy and people were mixing with little mask wearing, so if you are...worried about covid id avoid in the evening.More

We found this place by accident and very glad we did. Delicious wings! Our server Emma could not have been more excellent. Emma was attentive without being too obtrusive. Great place to eat wings and watch a game on plentiful televisions. Nice pool tables, too....There was a small stage and live music was advertised but we did not stick around long enough to enjoy that. Will be back to Monkey's Uncle Tavern!More

AMCS Group out of Limerick Ireland with an office by Mayo provides lunch for our employees twice a week which is a great culevent for us. The restaurants we choose come from employees and based on food and quality of the to go experience which...is a hit or miss with large orders we have places we do over and over. Monkey's is one of those restaurants,from the owner who should write a book on how to create a world class customer experience to Linda who makes the food magical, to Bridey who always is there with a smile. Casual dining, office functions, or maybe a couple drinks after work or for the big game..this is your place. Thank you from my team to yours Carter!!!!More

Came here for first time to hear some music, eat and drink. Went to bar twice and promised server would see us. 30 minutes later....still no service. Probably would have spent $100 but only $5 for a beer. Left to get better service elsewhere. Probably...wont be back.More

We had great service. We sat at a high table near the bar. The bartender, a. Ice young lady took good care of us. The food was very good and the prices were very fair. We will definitely go back.

Our cousin chose this place for the luncheon after a memorial service, as it was a favorite of her husband’s. Great choice! Food was very good, and covered porch area gave us a homey place to talk and be together. Some of us stayed all...afternoon into the evening. Only negative was that one waiter seemed to be a bit overactive in pushing drinks -I realize it’s a bar, but we can pace ourselves.More

I have been eating here 4-6 times a month since 2016. Less recently since Prime Rib Night has been discontinued. Three weeks ago I ordered the Mahi Sandwich, one of my favorites. The fries were cold and the fish was so overcooked and was dry...and tasteless. The next week I ordered a special Buffalo Chicken Philly. The sandwich was inedible with very little filling and not much flavor. Returned the next week and sat at a table for 18 minutes with no service in an almost empty restaurant. Finally left and will not return.More

Fairly large bar with pool table area and live music. Service was good. Had the special BBQ Rib Grilled Cheese. Ridiculously good.

We met some friends for a drink and ended up ordering some food. I was blown away with their Ahi Tuna because it's a sports bar type of place so that's not something I would normally order but I was really happy I did. Some...of the BEST Ahi Tuna I've had in a very long time. Definitely worth going to check out!!More

I tried this place because of the great reviews and it was close to where I was staying. I placed a to go order for 10 wings Buffalo hot with celery. I got there and the place was crowded with folks watching a hockey game....I saw to go orders sitting on the bar and I went that way. After about 15 minutes of subtlety waving a $20 bill the bartender brought me my order. Got to the hotel and the wings were under cooked (rubbery) and almost NO seasoning. I usually don’t write bad reviews but Jacksonville has so many good restaurants and I feel like I wasted a great night of good food based on “glowing reviews “More
