This place was a nightly must have for our family. Awesome fish tacos and fried mahi. Can get really crowded so plan accordingly. We ordered to go on several nights. I will say the service every time was consistent and terrific!

The atmosphere was wonderful. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. We had the fish tacos, avocado salad, corn chowder, ramen. Everything was absolute perfection. We had family members from 9 to 79 and everyone loved it.

Yes, definitely more than okay for kids. But I would definitely make a reservation. Enjoy!
The Monkey Pod website mentions Happy Hour daily from 3-5:30PM and again from 9:30-11PM. What are the happy hour drink and food items, and for how much? Can children come at that time?
