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.

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!
