Was a very nice day and we sat outside. Service was a little slow. The irish stew was flavorful but the meat tough. The fish and chips was excellent. The steak fries were dry. Guinness seemed fresh and not outrageously priced. Overall a nice experience but hoped for more. I will try the other fries next time.

Like the title reads, they messed up our tab. Reason being, we never could get a server to come outside to our table. It was a beautiful day on a Saturday afternoon, happy people on the patio...no server. We found an un occupied table for four. The other surrounding patrons told us we didn't need to wait to be seated,... More

Went to The Old Monk last night with family from out of town. I've wanted to try the place out for some time and I'm glad I finally did. The food was good especially the chicken and Avocado sandwich, with fries but they do offer more healthier sides. They have a good selection of beers on tap but being National... More

I went with a friend for drinks. They have a large selection of artesian cheeses and I made up a cheese board we had tis with drinks. I love this. Decent selection of craft beers, Irish Whisky and Scotch. Outside seating as well.

One of the better batches of fish and chips - perfectly fried, not greasy, good sauces to slather on. Decent selection of beers (and the waitress was knowledgeable and helpful in experimenting with the local selection). Mussels were runty, with decent cooking sauce. Pub a bit on the noisy side.

The Old Monk has a fun vibe and an eclectic crowd. Based upon the reviews we were eager to give it a whirl. We found the bartenders to be a bit rude and lackluster in the service department. We tried the French Onion soup and were disappointed. Service was slow but the drinks were good.

The Old Monk was within walking distance of my son's new apartment, what a great find. We had a Chipotle Avocado Chicken sandwich, excellent flavor. Lot of choices for both food and beverages. Can't wait to go back and try other things.

My usual reason to go to the Old Monk is for the fish and chips(in the old english style) and for the extensive selection of scotches and beers.
