Specializing in Colossal Lump Crab Cakes and a variety of Fresh Seafood Items, but also offering the finest Steaks, Salads and even Pizzas, The Brass Monkey has something for everyone. Drawing on 18 years of restaurant experience in the Maryland Chesapeake Bay area, Kelly and her husband Barry have worked to achieve uncompromised and superior food quality, service, value and consistency in a casual dining atmosphere. All of the menu items are prepared in-house with the highest quality ingredients and painstaking attention to detail and freshness, all offered at a reasonable price.

If I say nothing else in this review, GET THE CRAB PRETZEL! It is incredible! I also had a frozen melon daquiri which was very good and they certainly did NOT skimp on the alcohol. We also had the crab cakes, which were 100% crab with no filler, just as advertised. They were delicious! The view is directly over the Gulf and there is inside A/C dining, and outside patio dining. They also have a room with pool tables.

The grouper is wonderful! Fresh and spiced just right. The fish dip is very good also. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The view from the balcony over looking beautiful Pass a Grille beach puts this place on my can't wait to come back. Great evening!

I have not have the experience that other recent reviewers had. I have actually been there several times and never had a bad meal, and the service has always been great. Food is your basic bar food- wings, sandwiches, burgers, etc. I would suggest sitting outside, weather permitting. Great location in Pass a Grille, directly across the street from the Gulf.

This is not a good bar. We stopped in for a drink during a rain storm. The positive about the drinks was that they were strong; the negative us that they have no idea how to mix them. They had little flavor other than the alcohol. My girlfriend thought her drink was too strong and nicely asked the bartender to add some cream or milk to the brass monkey (chocolate coffee martini). He refused and claimed he didn't have anything to add and made a comment about the menu stating that the drink was all alcohol while walking away. The drinks were over priced and underwhelming taste-wise. No excuse for rude service.
