    Very noisy restaurant, super busy as it was a Friday night. The fish and chips were good. The mussels were just okay. We sat at a high table with two chairs, no place to hang wet coats and umbrellas.

    Their beers are a cut above other micro-breweries. The food was a big surprise. Major wow. French fries cooked in duck fat, that's first class. And the bread for the sandwiches was not only excellent, but buttered and toasted until it perfectly crunchy. And when you throw in outstanding service and very cool vibe, it's now my favorite brew pub.

    The ambience was nice, friendly service. I prefer the creme brûlée french toast with a side of 2 scrambled egg whites. The french toast was hard and I did not enjoy it. It was quite expensive for the what we paid. My husband ordered the Bloody Mary. I have never seen such a small container for a Bloody Mary. He said it was ok …shoulder “shrug”. I will not be going back unless maybe for drinks. I won’t recommend to other friends or family.

    The main reason that we have returned so many times was the consistently excellent service we received from Sergio. I guess he no longer works there, and the waiter we had was mediocre, at best. We will not likely return. What a shame.

    We dine fairly regularly at Monk's Cellar and always find the food and beers to be excellent. It is LOUD when the place is crowded, so be prepared for that. But service is always fast, courteous, and professional, and you'll find some really excellent beer at very good prices. We had the Carbonnade Flamande, a Belgian beef stew, the fish & chips with duck fat fries, and the raspberry-lemon creme brulee for dessert. All the dishes were excellent, and the Carbonnade Flamande was particularly yummy. We had several different beers, all of which were superb. The beers really shine here, you can't go wrong ordering your favorite style. Wonderful!

    Always had good food and prompt online service but this experience was sadly the worst. Waited over an hour - had to get up and go looking for service twice. No explanation- when I finally left and went looking for my food a check I asked what was going on was told an large party came in right when they opened. Would have been great to have had an explanation or sort of communication, check in - something. Was completely ignored - trying to give some allowance but did notice a wine sales rep and tasting go on and other bar chatter when it seems like there might have been an opportunity for service. Definitely not going back on my lunch break again

    At The Monk's Cellar you are greeted with a smile and guided through a lovely pub to your table. There you will enjoy the atmosphere of warm wood accents and fresh plants while you choose from a wide selection of beer, wine and cocktails before you enjoy a fantastic feast. The Monk's Cellar mixes quality and tradition for a fine dining experience. Try the duck fries, a most luxurious treat.

    Wow. What an amazing place to eat at. The food was something I’ve never tasted before and was honestly the best food I’ve ever had at a Restaurant. The drinks were just as much as Buffalo Wild Wings or yard house, but you could TASTE the difference. The server (I forgot his name) was the cherry on top. He just made our experience so much better with his care, his humor, and his personality. We never had to ask for anything because it was already provided. Overall the best place I’ve ever eaten, will be going back, will be recommending to everyone.

    Bar service very slow! I asked for an Orange for my beer as it was suppose to come with an Orange. When the bartender finally gave it to the waitress my beer was almost gone. Waitress very nice. The tacos on taco Tuesday were delicious.

    Had a 7pm reservation and found out at 7:45 that they closed at 8. Getting drinks was slow but food came out quickly and was really good. Did not like that were able to make a reservation so close to closing so we felt a bit rushed. Will probably go back though, fun atmosphere and the food and drinks were very good.

    Met friends for dinner. We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation but they seated us quickly on the patio outside. It was a cold night but there were patio heaters which made the patio comfortable, although the screamo metal band playing at the bar next door (at 6:30 pm) was distracting. We ordered the Bad Habit cocktail which was outstanding. The soft pretzels were a delicious appetizer. I had the cottage pie entree and my wife had the Monks Cellar burger with duck fat fries, both very tasty. Good portions but not too much. My friend had the steak frites and raved about how good it was throughout the meal. Coffee and dessert: we all split cheesecake and the chocolate pretzel pie: both solid offerings. They ran out of coffee when we asked for a second cup. Service was attentive and friendly but not hovering. Highly recommended.
