A word from Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafe
The Cheeky Monk will change the way you think about beer. With over 75 beers to choose from, many which are hard to find anywhere else in Colorado and date back as far as the 11th century, you'll enjoy a taste of Belgium in Westminster. The vast variety of beers boast hints of fruit, berries, chocolate - some have strong characteristics, some are tart, sour, earthy and bitter. Something for everyone even those that don't normally prefer beer. The food menu, with specialties including Mussels, Frites Aioli, Bangers and Mash, and Belgian Waffles, has been designed to accompany the beers and enhance your overall experience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Their finest beers are in short supply and are not on the menu. If you are truly serious about beers then ask your server. Last sunday they had a hidden stash of La Trappe Qual Oak Aged, a gem at $20. Served at precisely the right temperature, I doubt whether there is a better beer in the world. The servers will learn your taste and be able to advise you as well."

  • "I have been to this restaurants numerous times and it never fails. From sitting at the bar getting a few beers to having a sit down dinner. Their food is always amazing and the atmosphere is relaxing. But nothing can beat their beer selection! If you're a beer person and are willing to try new and different ones this is the place for you!"

  • "Warm beer and terrible service. Go to Rock Bottom instead."

  • "From the moment we entered the restaurant, this was a terrible experience. Everything was SLOW! For example, it took 15 mins to get coffee and water, and when the server learned we were ready to order, it was another 10 mins before he came back to the table. After ordering, we waited about 40 mins without being checked on when I asked to see the manager. He did a good job of getting our food to the table within 5 mins of talking to him, BUT half of the mussels that I ordered didn't open during cooking, and they forgot to bring my fries to the table. They did cut our bill in half for the poor experience, but it was too little, too late. The food was awful and the service dismal. Skip it, and enjoy the wine bar across the street."

  • "I took my out of town friends here and they loved it. We had eaten at many restaurants during their visit, and while skiing, and they especially liked the Cheeky monk. My husband and I eat there often "

  • "Had a terrible experience here. All their beer prices rang up different than on the menu they gave us. Plus we were mischarged on the happy hour apps as well. Terrible service from our waiter and quite frankly it didn't seem like they valued their customers when dealing with this problem. We never did get the billing issues completely resolved and end the end just paid the bill after it was only half fixed vs wasting a ton more time to figure it out. (They took almost 25 mins. to only fix some of there billings issues, way to long!!!) The sad thing was it was a really slow night and only a couple other tables had anyone there. Very sad cause the food was good, but would not recommend this establishment to anyone else."

  • "The beer is the star here at Cheeky Monk, but don't forget the great mussels and fries (Moules et Frites). I've never had a bad dish here."

  • "Great location, great beer list and great food. Love the large fireplace and just really enjoy the Westminister location in how they have it laid out, etc."

  • "Most tasteless, bland mac and cheese I've ever had - completely devoid of any flavor whatsoever. Side salad was limp and equally unimpressive. Parmesan and garlic fries as appetizer were good... until we got to the bottom of the paper cone they came in and saw the pool of grease.... pretty much killed our enthusiasm. Had hoped dinner would make up for that, but hugely disappointed. Will not return nor recommend. Maybe people go here for the beer...."

  • "We've been here several times on diferent times of the day/week. We went for a quick appetizer/happy hour (their beer menu is awesome!!! price and variety). We had some frites (french fries) which were delicious... server was very prompt and helpful (although her knowledge of beer was a bit limited) Will definitely go back again!"

  • "The restaurant is very similar to the Colfax location. Great beer selection and reasonable food. It was a nice alternative to a chain restaurant to catch up with friends."

  • "This place has a long and interesting menu of Belgium, as well as domestic, beers. They also have several "samplers" which allow you to try several beers along side each other. The wait staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the offerings. While we went there for the beer, the food was very good too. And quite authentically Belgian. The mussels were great!"
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "Great beer selection, however, the menu listed beers that were not yet on tap, which was very disappointing!"

  • "Everything was great, everyone in our party enjoyed the food / beer, we had a great time. Will diff. be back. Have all ready recommended it to employees and physicians at work."

  • "This used to be one of our favorite destinations but they recently redid the menu and not to our liking. Beer selection has deteriorated and the quality of the food is nowhere close to when the restaurant first opened."

  • "Extensive Belgium beer menu. Great food, The Cheeky Monk is my go to Pub for great food, beer and ambiance."

  • "The food quality isnt near as good as the downtown location, but the venue is top notch. I dont concern myself with the food too much, as the ale list is the draw, but the cassoulet downtown was amazing. We ordered it again and the meat was very dry. Wait staff was VERY slow to respond, but had a great attitude. I'm thinking they were short staffed. I'll be back."

  • "Waitress was surly when we arrived, even though the place was empty and mellow. She warmed up a bit over the course of our stay but wasn't especially friendly - although she made good menu recommendations. Food and beer were good but portions of both were small given the prices."

    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "The Cheeky Monk is a place I go for its beer selection. The number of variety of Belgian brews on tap is truly impressive. Their food is good as well, but more kin to bar food than fine dining. I will say that I had the Abbot burger on this last visit and it was outstanding. My wife was taking bites from my plate all night instead of eating her steak (which was a little tough)."

  • "This is a Belgian Beer Cafe so why have you limited your recommendations to only wine?"
    Dined on 7/11/2013
  • "We enjoyed a dish of mussels and bangers & mash. Both were very good."
    Dined on 6/28/2013
  • "The menu choices were unique and oh so tasty! We ordered salads and enjoyed them with Belgian beers on the patio. Service was fantastic--friendly and prompt--yet they let us linger and enjoy the evening without feeling pressured to give up the table."

  • "Enjoyed the options so much we had to come back to try some more beers. Brought my mom, who is belgian, and she was very impressed with the selection of beers (and specially that they had many on tap and served in the appropriate glass) and the mussels. (although the portion was small compared to what they would serve in Belgium. Overall a great experience, good service, great location, lot's of options of food and beverages and great with the kids!"

  • "This place is best if you are going for beer and fries. They have a good beer selection and very greasy, yummy fries. The rest of the food...not great. The service...marginal. Probably wouldn't recommend this place for much other than the above."
    Dined on 4/27/2013
  • "Great place! Lot's of options of beer and they are properly served in their glasses. Food was also very nice (although we just had appetizers...) Services was impeccable. Will definitely go back!"

  • "It always amazing me that the focus with a resturant isn't on the first impression.The host staff should not just be a pretty face,but one with a service mind. We were greeted by 3 hosts & hostess at the door. The male host was good, we requested a warm table after coming in from the storm, he passed the menus to a female hostess who seemed a bit confused and was not friendly at all,she took us in to what I believe to be the coldest area of the resturant.(all glass area).We asked if there was something else.Low and behold the next choice was one table away from the fireplace, in the center of the resturant. Very nice cozy spot.Everything else went great.But honestly not sure I'll return to be "greeted" by this type of attitude."

  • "There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed the new beers we tried. The food was so so. Reuben had small portion of meat and sauerkraut, but lot of dressing. Shrimp salad was good, and not too much dressing. Spaghetti Bolognese was average."
