My bf & I have been here a few times over the past summer & love the outdoor cafe style seating (weather permitting). The service & drink selection were pretty good, however the food itself was a little less then average. Seems kinda crazy they would put so much effort into the atmosphere, but so little behind the food. I was very disappointed in my last meal, which consisted of overcooked tasteless calamari & A grilled chicken wrap, that was served cold. If your looking for a cute, romantic spot to have a few drinks, then this is the place to go. But if your counting on a decent meal, I'd probably pass. But who know. Maybe they'll improve over time!

My hubby and I have become two part-time "steadies" at the Monkees. We enjoy the wonderful chips and salsa, the soup and most of the sandwiches. I will say that the bartenders and the wait staff go overboard to make your stay pleasant here. We feel it is a very comfortable place to visit. Would not hesitate to come into the restaurant myself for lunch or dinner without a partner. My only complaint is that we have had some take-out sandwiches which were not as appetizing once we got them home. I understand there is a new chef on board, though, and the menu has been expanded. We look forward to spending many more happy visits at the Monkees and enjoying the carmaraderie and some very good food. Keep up the good work, Monkees.

Yo Har, My Co-workers and I frequently have lunch here. Great services and relaxing atmosphere. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Yummy yummers!

I began frequenting Monkeys @2 years ago with my boyfriend. We have been there everytime of the day almost everyday of the week (no we are nto alcoholics), throughout every season. I am not nor was I ever employed by the bar however I have worked in some. By far, and also growing up in this area ( G & A), this bar is by far one of the best attractions Northeast Philly has to offer. I mean this for all age groups too...I took my mother here for her birthday and often see men & women of retirement age enjoying a drink and a meal It's also not odd to see an entire family come in at anytime any day/night of the week. As far as kids are concerned, I would not recommend bringing them on a busy weekend night however I have seen infants to teenagers coem in and they admire how detailed and well docrated the bar has been done. The staff always welcomes clientele, no matter what age or where they are from. If you love where you grew up from all the way down in Port Richmond and up to Bensalem, show your support to some good local business people who have made something wonderful in the area. It will be worth your trip and worth your while! Even for the singles, the bar offers pleanty of good times. You can watch a game, check out some eye candy & in the summer enjoy a band outside. It's a nice place to meet up and most of the time once you're there and start mingling you don't want to leave!

You can't find another bar in the Northeast like this. The interior is insane - attention to every detail down to the pics of old time Philly. The crabcakes and Monkeytini's are awesome, and the courtyard outside is comfortable and relaxing. Great place to watch any sporting event, or just a chill lunch. No, I don't own the bar - I'm just a fan. Good times to be had at this place.

They need a cook who does not burn things.

I went a week ago with the girls and had a nice time. I took my boyfriend this Sunday and had an even better time. Outside seating is in a great cozy enviroment and the change of scene is just what we needed. The crab dip is out of this world! We also had lunch. My burger was okay. I wanted it cooked medium and it was well done but this happens at most places I go to. My boyfriend got a cheesesteak and it was delicious. I had a martini and the price was reasonable for the size. We also had the carrot cake for desert and it was delicious! I am going back next Sunday for the live entertainment!
