“Avoid the Blue Monkey on Madison Ave in Memphis, TN”
Reviewed July 16, 2008

We arrived at 11:40 and spoke to the waitress when we came in who informed us the nonsmoking section was to our left. That should have been my first clue to turn around and leave. We waited for almost 15 minutes and went and got our own menus and told the waitress where we were sitting and that we were on our lunch hour and in a hurry. To make a long and painful story short, after much discussion, and having the waitress argue with us, watching people who came in after us not only get their food but finish and pay before we received our food (we had a table of 4) speaking to two different managers and throwing several hissy fits, we received our food after 1:00. Take into account we did not have a special order - veggie plate, salad, chicken fingers and fries, and the Santa Fe Crisp was the orders for the table. At one point during this arduous wait, the waitress brought us our checks but we had not yet received our food. At 12:25 she told us when we inquired again about our food she said it would be out "shortly". The service was the worse I've ever experienced. The waitress was rude, and argumentative. When we did receive our food it was for the
most part good and might have even been enjoyable had our experience been better. Oh, by the way, in case you don't know, the waitress " is a person", which she kept repeating to us, so maybe if you get one of their alien wait staff you might get better service, but the wait staff that is a person, isn't a people person nor a customer service oriented person, so avoid the cute little blonde like the plaque. One could starve to death or die of thirst waiting for her to bring you your food - we even had to get up to get our own iced tea refills. posted July 18, 2008. I'll never go back.

“Okay - if you smoke and over over-age”
Reviewed February 14, 2008

The food is okay; used to have a huge menu, they cut back and tried to make it "fancier" but it's just bar-food. the major downside: they decided to keep allowing smoking after the TN Smoking Ban, and therefore no one under the age of 21 is allowed in, ever. And, it's one of the few (maybe 5) places in town that allows smoking, so it's jam packed with smokers. Yuck.
