The Blue Monkey resembles a typical bar in Dublin. There are 40 beers on tap, so don't ask the bartender what is on tap or he will get annoyed. (Happened.) Wine is also available but you pay a lot for a shot in a wine glass. There is a good choice of food and it is very good, but again,... More

The monkey always has great food and an amazing beer selection. They also do some pretty banging drink specials. Can't beat the atmosphere and the local flavor. A major plus for us is being able to walk home.

Visited multiple times. Love the fried pickles. Summer special of Sea Bass was absolutely delicious. If you get prime rib ask for sauce/gravy on the side, they tend to smother the beef. They have a great beer and wine selection. Can be noisy and parking in the immediate area is a little hard to find on weekends. Staff is friendly.... More

My girlfriend chose this place for her birthday lunch, and it didn't disappoint. The menu isn't that vast, but there's certainly something here to please everyone. The place was not too crowded on a weekday afternoon, and we sat right down in a booth. Service was attentive, food was good, prices reasonable. Blue Monkey has actually been on my bucket... More

Great neighborhood atmosphere. Can't go wrong on the burgers and plenty of beer on tap. Wings are also good.

First of all, this is a beautiful building. It's an old one and our waiter said he thinks it was built in the 1950's. It has formerly been a hardware store and a bank that he knew of. The inside is fascinating and the bar is just beautiful. It has a rich atmosphere yet it is very comfortable. We came... More
