I grew up in Old Saybrook and I must disclose I know the owners, that being said this was not the place in years past for lets say the Faint of Heart to go, a real blue collar at best Bar, the Daughters of the owner a few years back decided to open up the kitchen and try their hand at the Restaurant business,well they tried and they succeeded very well! You have to try the coconut shrimp and the wings actually everything they make is good.This is not a fancy place no linen just plain tables but the food and the value is just plain great.

Definitely go to the Monkey Farm. It had the best seafood bisque and lobster rolls. We had ordered the hot lobster roll but the waitress gave us the cold one instead. When they discovered the error they only charged us for one meal. We enjoyed the cold lobster roll. The seafood bisque was creamy and o delicious!

The Monkey Farm has been around FOREVER....and has a real reputation. But, my generation has taken over and boy have they done a great job of preserving the old things we all expect from the Monkey Farm, while adding the "new" - delicious food. My husband and his friends love the daily lunch specials and the chicken sandwich. I had a burger that was as good as the best burger places in West Hartford. And my husband's chicken "tenders" that night were amazing-- huge pieces of chicken, deep fried and delicious. My mother's friends love the lobster rolls.

The seating on the porch for lunch/dinner is comfortable and light filled. The bar itself is dark, but good for a game of pool, a round of darts or to watch a game on TV.

A classic.

Had drinks in here one Friday night. Its a great local dive bar that played good music, had a pool table and 4 or 5 dart boards. The night we were there it seemed to be an older crowd which was fine with us. They only take cash. Would definitely stop in here again for a late night drink.
