We had a large group for a birthday dinner party. Everyone enjoyed their food and we had things from all over the menu from mussels to paninis. The beer list is large and the atmosphere is dark and inviting. The wait staff were friendly and fast. It was surprising how promptly the food was served given that we put in... More

The burger was great, my friend's brunch selection yummy, too. It got a bit crowded, but that says you'll have a good time. The prices were ok, you can walk off the calories at the Greenway next door or check out art across the street at Eiland Art Gallery- coffee shop.

We had a little graduation dinner party here for my daughter that graduated from Duke Law School. We were placed in a little semi-private room off to the side. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food is not your typical bar food!! You can tell a real chef made the menu and not some bar cook. I got... More

Try the Chicken Barcelona, the sweet potato fries, the burgers, the sandwiches, the calamari. They have a wonderful selection of beers and interesting cocktails. The old standards are nicely done. On Tuesdays, a very lively Quizzo Game is held. The kitchen is open to 10.

The Blue Monkey is a must do in southern NJ. Excellent variety of salads, sandwiches and entrees as well as an extensive beer list. Service was quick and friendly. Ingredients were fresh and innovative. Can't wait to return!

I came here for the beer menu, and it did not disappoint. They have a very large draft list and I tried 2 new beers. My girlfriend and I got mozzarella sticks for an appetizer, it came with 4 sticks. I then got a veggie panini with tater tots. The tater tots were the best part, and I took home... More

Stopped here last night for some casual dinner with my husband. I ordered the sesame chicken sandwich, it was really good. My husband ordered the crab cake sandwich- he loved it. Love the beer list here. Service was also great. Will return.

My wife, I and two kids (6 & 4) eat at Blue Monkey at least once a month. This is our go to bar/restaurant as it satisfies all four of us. The experience is consistently the same: great!
