Seven monks received lots of praise online we decided to check it out. First, the bartender Laura was super friendly. She immediately gave us directions and menus. We sat in the bar part of this business. There were several big tables for larger group and...some booths for smaller groups, too. I noticed two multigenerational families while we tasted some interesting beer. We like the huge selection of beer, wine and cocktails offered. We ordered dinner after a while and came within 10 minutes…wow! If you’re a Michigander who eats dinner in TC in the summertime, you’ll expect a wait… but not this time! The beet salad with maple dressing and candied almonds was so so tasty! My hubby got the smash burger and it was delicious! Loved everything about this place. The bill came around $60 for the both of us… that’s about average now for drinks and dinner in a nicer restaurant nowadays. It was a very nice establishment and we’ll be back.More

This is not a craft beer bar with some food. This is a restaurant with craft beers and a full bar. Food was excellent, staff was very attentive, oh, and the IPA was outstanding.

My group of 6 all ordered something different and we tasted all of it. The top prize went to the $12 bourbon peach concoction!

Just stopped by for one after dinner. We sat at the bar, and the bar tenders were very attentive. Large selection of beer. We didn't eat, so we can't comment on that.

Drinks were great. The food, not so much cause they never made it. Waited an hour for our food and never showed. Staff were apologetic but you could tell it’s happened before. Disappointed because it’s not the first time while visiting. The restaurants in Traverse...city seems to have an issue with this. unfortunately it’s a common problem here.More

As soon as we got to a table, Krista looked after us with a warm smile and speedy service. She was quick to spot when we needed topping up and even brought us a large jug of water when she figured that we were needing...rehydration. So rare to get such amazing and welcoming service. The beer was great too with every taste catered for although we stuck to the draft craft. Shame there were too many to try!More

I wish I remembered the server's name, short hair, tatted, pierced. She was very kind. I got the double cheeseburger - i LOVE a Smashburger and this was delicious! Fries were really good too. The server even provided some local information on parking to visit...the beach for free :) Thank you again!More

Welcome to the waiter-less pub. Please seat yourself. Please scan the QR code, review the menu online, order online and create a virtual tab. Then suddenly someone will appear for 5 seconds bring your beer in a small plastic cup and disappear. And water is...over there if you want some. Ordered a large Tank 7 for $12.50, got the same small plastic cup filled with a beer that definitely did not taste like any of the Tank7s I ever had (“it was so difficult to pour” - verbatim from the random server). Definitely felt cheated. Food was ok, no complaints other than the sub-par fries.More

Out for a Monday walk looking for a place for a beer. No shortage around this city. Nicely decorated and option to sit outside. We did not due to birds flying overhead!

Best burger I’ve ever had in my entire life! I drive 4 hours for this ! But that said, a pathetically small side salad for the price.

Plenty of selections on tap. Great service and atmosphere. We did not eat here. Very small selection of liquor if you are looking for a cocktail. Good location to hop around to other establishments.

We visiting 7 Monks based on the ratings having never been before. We thought "why not compare one of TC's best burger joints to an outstanding burger at POUR in Petoskey". So a Bacon Jam Burger order went in along with Monk N Cheese with...grilled chicken. Unfortunately I can't say great things about either. The burger was decent but not great. Yes it was interesting to see bacon jam on the burger since it's trending now. But that's where it stops. The grilled chicken with Monk Cheese was just that - a piece of previously grilled chicken thrown on top of mac cheese. Pretty boring flavor wise and presentation.More

Great experience! The staff was friendly and very helpful to every single person that approached the bar. Very knowledgeable about the beers. They also made you feel like no matter what drink you picked, you were making the right choice 😉

Outstanding beer selection. Good selection is smaller but each item was very good. We had the chicken sandwich, bacon jam burger and beet salad add spicy chicken. Sounds random but the beet salad with spicy chicken was incredible.

We seated ourselves and were quickly greeted with some waters. Simple, straightforward menu with some really cool flavors. The garlic aioli was the highlight of our meal.

yes - when we visited there were a couple of families in there with teenage children but it seems to be focused more towards the over 21 crowd as the menu does not have "kids" selection.
