Service was not particularly friendly, but the food was good and the prices were decent. Looks like a good bar and the wings seemed super popular though we chose burgers. It's nice that they have a 4oz burger option. Kids pizza was good size and fresh made.

I had a grilled shrimp wrap with mild sauce - it was recommended by the hostess. It was good. Unfortunately, the waitress didn't seem interested in serving our group of 7, and after we got our food, we never saw her again...no drink refills, had to hunt her down for our checks...

We ate a late lunch here on Thursday, Jan. 19. My husband enjoyed the Thursday lunch special: grilled pork chop, rice and gravy, collard greens. I sampled his pork chop and the collards--both quite flavorful. I had the flounder sandwich which came with fries and slaw. My food was quite good too. (The fish piece didn't look too big, but...

3 of us ordered. Burger was dry, burnt, and tough as leather. Steak was covered in some goo and I sent mine back. I ordered the chicken which was pre-seasoned and frozen. Edible but weird flavor. Mashed potatoes were tasteless but fine. The roll was good. Service was terrible. Everything was slow and they weren't busy. Server didn't tell us... More

Monkey bar is a great place for all. Great food from appetizer to steak or sea food. Full bar and seems like alot of locals frequent this place. Even though it has a bar kids are also very welcome.

Tried their Brunswick stew. It is very very similar to my own recipe and was excellent. I highly recommend. Also they have as good a drink selection as any on the island
