Finally made it here for an early dinner - and enjoyed it a great deal! Shared the bacon wrapped dates, the house salad and an Abbey burger and everything was fantastic. Hubby enjoyed the beer very much too. Our waitress was a doll. Will come back again for sure!

After visiting Traverse City, MI on a number of occasions this place delivers the most diverse and excellent selection of tap beers. 46 taps covering pilsners, lagers, ales, stouts and porters. Also a big selection of bottled beer and comfort food menu.

We stopped here while on our trip around Lake Michigan and enjoyed dinner while watching a Badger game. Great selection of beer. While the menu options are rather small, the food was good. Husband had the sausage plate and I had the pulled pork. Very good.

Excellent International and MI beer selection. Very good food. Visited here several times with friends while in the area. There are a lot of pubs and micro breweries in Traverse City but a stop or two here will not disappoint! I will stop here every time I'm in the area.

Stopped in at 7 Monks on a Wed night. They have a large selection of beers both local and out of state. Nice food menu - wife had the wings and I had Paneer cheese in a spicy curry type sauce with pita wedges. Very yummy. Live music came on about 8PM - 3 piece band playing modern music but... More
