[Warning: young adults from Central Florida here for just a visit] We chose to visit Thirsty Monk because it was open later than other breweries, and it was close to our residence. I’m glad-- the beer was welcoming. THE FLIGHT WAS MORE THAN WE ASKED...More

I've been to the Thirsty Monk several times and the biggest reason for going is you can have smaller glasses of beers. I like tasting beer and they have it. It's a friendly crowd and outdoor seating. The bartenders are very friendly and helpful with...More

Didn't get to order food or drink before we were insulted by the bartender which is why we left before ordering anything. My advice would be to find a personable bartender without an attitude and produce a menu that indicates what is available downstairs and...More

Small place, not very comfortable. But, they offer an extensive selection of beer and it was quiet so the four of us could easily hold a conversation. As we were not here for any other reason but to drink and socialize, we were quite pleased.

My friend and I attended the Belgian bar in the basement of Thirsty Monk, where the only noise to be heard was the soft playing of loud music on the speakers. Even when other people filed in and out, the crowds were generally respectful of...More

This place reminds me of a dumpy bar in a college town, best suited for undergraduate guys. No place comfortable to sit. Seats torn. My husband loved his beer, so that's why 2 stars rather than zero. The bartender had an attitude. I got a...More
