Typical casual neighbourhood pub not far off a main road. We had lunch there. Very accommodating for food changes. Medium to good service. Quite busy, but no problem getting a table. I'll go back. Don't know what dinner is like here anymore.

The appetizers for happy hour are terrible. They were dry, tasteless, cold and we didn't bother eating half of them. The pub is ok and the service was nice and it's close to the Lockside Trail which is the best thing going for it, but...More

Ive been to the Monkey Tree Pub many times over the years, as I live fairly closeby. Its a great neighbourhood pub and the food, and the service is always awesome. My favourites are the burgers (beef or chicken) and the yam fries. The atmosphere...More

Pretty good food with your average selection of beers. Nothing too fancy or original here but still tasty. A little disappointed with our servers. They did not seem happy to be there and it was almost as if it would've killed them to crack a...More
