    Pretty good

    Overall it was good...I wanted duck spring rolls which had sold out, then I had the mussels which were ok but not great, the mussels themselves were excellent but needed alot for sauce/juice, fries were average but mayo rocked! Dessert was good but no ice cream or cream to go on the side made it a bt dry. But will go back again!

    Hostess was rude

    My friends and I went to Monk's to try this legandary beer list. We didn't stay for more than a couple of minutes because the hostess literally scolded us for sitting at a table without consulting her first. I mean this woman flipped out. I have never never been treated this disrespectfully by someone in the food industry. She treated us like 2nd graders and she was the evil teacher. For this reason, I will not go back until I know that woman no longer works there.

    I was in Philly this weekend and my buddy took a group of us to Monks for lunch. I heard about this place up in NY and it couldn't have been a bigger disappointment. Took over an hour for the waitress to bring us two appetizers after we ordered and then she brought the main dishes five minutes after the appetizers were delivered. She never came by to ask if we wanted more beers during this prolonged agony either. Fries weren't good; Pommes Frites in NY is way better and more authentic. The beer selection is great but the waitstaff is never around to bring one of them to you. All in all just a bad place.This place is glorified bar food not even done well.

    Worth the wait

    Best place in Philly for beer and burgers. The pommes frites are out of this world--make sure you try the bourbon mayo with them. Very knowledgeable staff helps you make the perfect beer selection!

    Title says it all. Burgers are sub-par. Fries are nothing to write home about. Beer selection is great, if that's what you're after.

    A beer heaven

    This is truly a beer lovers paradise. There are approximately 200 different kinds of beers with half of them from Belgium. The food is awesome especially the burgers and the tuna steaks. Decor is average but your here pretty much to try beers from all over the world. Overall a great find but you must make it a point to go early or else it gets too crowded.

    Burgers, Brews... and Mussels

    So what if there's a long wait for a table sometimes? They have one of the best beer lists in Philly (microbrew heaven!) and good, good burgers and mussels. The one with boursin is excellent.
