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

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.
