I always enjoy the experience. The food is however overpriced. Figure $50 per person with drinks. If you get the steak, medium-rare is very pink in the middle. Medium is a little better cooked. I go at least twice a year.

Waited 2 1/2 hours for our food and they ran out of Haddock for the Friday night fish fry. They had multiple excuses for the slow service. Will never go back. How they stay in business is beyond me!

This has to be one of the worse restaurant experiences we have ever endured. Terrible service and less than mediocre food. Waiting 2 1/2 hrs to be served food is totally unacceptable.

My first visit to Monroe's. Very cozy with fireplaces and then a very large outdoor seating area that would be great in the summer for drinks outside. My husband was not a fan of his eggplant parmesan as it was very seedy and tough but...More
