The Lucky Monk
Whether you're settling in at our bar or relaxing with your friends and family in our comfortable dining room, our delicious food,drink and warm welcome are sure to elevate your soul.
I really enjoy luck monk. It has a nice upscale casual atmosphere, with small private rooms. It is my favorite burger place so its hard not to have one when I go, but sometimes I try. Good appetizers, love the Brussel sprouts, and pizza is good too. Its a nice place to meet for drinks and appetizers as well. Bar area has TV's for sports but never gets too loud, so you can still enjoy table conversation. Great outdoor patio. I'm not a beer drinker so I don't come for the beer, sorry. The service is hit or miss, never bad but they seem inexperienced sometimes. This last visit, I was with a group of ladies and no one seemed to be bussing our table. And there were plenty of help at the time. I have yet to have anything I didn't like including salads and chili. The kitchen is always on point.
This was our second visit and, both times, the food was great. Good quality for the money and we enjoyed the house-brewed beers. However, our visit on a Sunday afternoon was nothing short of a disaster w/r/t service. We arrived five minutes early for our reservation to be told, rudely, at the front desk, that another party was accidentally seated at our table. As though we were inconveniencing the hostess, she told us it would be at least 20 minutes. We should have left then.
After finally being seated, no apology given, we ordered appetizers, beers and main dishes. Our server was kind, polite and tried to make the most of what was clearly a terrible situation in the kitchen. Food took ages to arrive and our main course was served almost 90 min after our reservation time. One appetizer, the cheese curds, came with the basket filled 3/4 of the way with lettuce rather than curds.
Our waitress did her best to apologize for the delays, poor service and bad attitude of the hostess but no one else offered an apology or any sort of compensation. Really liked the food here...would really stop and think before coming here again, though. Overall a nice afternoon somewhat damaged by the poor, careless service.
Booked a table last minute after a movie! We were seated as soon as we checked in. We had a nice sized booth for two of us. Our server Mike was excellent!!!! He recommended an item off the menu that was just want I wanted similar to something on the menu but so much more to my liking!! He was personable, attentive, & polite! We love great service and admire hard workers! Keep it up, Mike! We hope to be back and see you again!
Service was very slow and waitress was never to be found. Haven’t tried restaurant in sometime and probably want be back for sometime.
The food is good, once they actually get it right. They are very inflexible and can't even make a substitution in their vegetable medley because everything is "pre-weighed." It was EXTREMELY loud. Our service was not great, from incorrect orders to needing to ask for drink refills several times and then having them basically thrown at us, to waiting over 15 minutes once the check was delivered to have anyone come back to the table, and then another 10 minutes to figure out how to take an Open Table reward certificate. (This last feedback is for Open Table- you need a better method, it is EXTREMELY difficult to redeem points and then the restaurants don't seem to know what to do.).
Food was good., service was ok. Not sure if they were short staffed or the server just didn’t care.
Service was a bit slow ( we had 3 different servers introduced to us)and it took them a while to bring the food on and the restaurant was not crowded.
Food was good!
Food was excellent. Service was great. A bit noisy.
Glad we had a reservation as this place was packed. The noise level was higher than we expected for the dining room, but we had an enjoyable dinner. Enjoyed the beer selection. Food and service was great. We will be back!
Usually we order fries as a side but this time we ordere mac and cheese and it was spicy and horrible
We had tickets for AMC 1 hour and 15 minutes after we ordered and did not receive our food until 15 minutes before the show and had to rush and eat in 10 minutes. The burger was burnt way beyound medium well but could not send it back without missing the movies
I would recommend The Lucky Monk but only to get a burger. Their burgers looked awesome and that is what most of the tables around us were having delivered. Our food took 45 minutes to get which was way to long and it wasn't very good. I had the mac n cheese with a parmesan crusted piece of chicken. The mac n cheese had a metallic taste to it the crust on the chicken was overcooked. The boyfriend ordered the spaetzle and we think pork. They served it with capers so the flavor was off.
We enjoyed food, service and specially their beers. Recommend it.
Lucky Monk is always very good! We were here for lunch before a movie at the next door AMC theater. The close proximity makes it handy when going out for lunch/dinner and a movie.
They have a great selection on their menu...this time I tried the Rueben which was piled high.....very high! Yum!
We enjoy Lucky Monk - our service was a bit slow for an order of tacos and a salad. We got seated next to a bunch of large parties early on which made the noise level go up when our reservation was at 4:45 and fairly early.
Great food as always and friendly service.
I love going to the Lucky Monk....they are quick when you want to get to the movie theatre next door or don't rush you when you wish to sit and enjoy!
Long awaited birthday celebration, the food was just wrong, the waitress failed, but the manager was sincere and truly cared. We’ll check this one off as an off night and visit again, as the manager promised they could and would do better!
Loved the atmosphere, service and food. Did not like most of the beers but we both loved Tritica!
It took a long time to get our food for dinner.
Note - the service rating is low NOT due to the server, but due to the load on the servers. Busy SAT night and I was about ready to get up and help our server handle the tables. Apparently, servers and cooks decided not to come in that night... Management should staff accordingly, knowing no-shows will happen.
The inside seating is very loud, hard to carry on a conversation. We sat outside and it was great. Food is great - selections are good and they are executed well. Have been here several times, but would be a ton more if the inside was a bit less loud and if they had a few more servers.
Good food. Slow service. Very loud.
Not what it used to be, unfortunately, as far as the quality of the food.
Always a great place to have dinner!
Our server was so over whelmed and rarely came to check on us. While waiting for our food, every runner that had food stopped at our table trying to give us the wrong order. Our food took more than 45 minutes to come out. When it did, my sister's "medium well" burger was rare. Sent it back and within minutes she had a new/different burger. We didn't even bother asking for the right burger because the servers seemed so confused. At least this one was cooked the way she ordered it. When the check came, the "new" replacement burger was added to the bill along with the rare burger sent back. That's a lot wrong for one visit. Probably won't go back.
We had a great work outing for Goebbert's at The Lucky Monk! We were a large group and our server was very attentive. Everyone's food came out at the same time and it was perfect! We will definitely be back.
I hadn't been to The Lucky Monk in a while. I always go to a restaurant thinking I'll have a salad...but here you just have to order a burger. YUM! I eat my burger without a bun, so I really am aware of texture and taste. Lucky Monk makes a delicious burger. I also ordered sweet potato fries. They were almost like churros...dusted with cinnamon sugar. They were light and crispy, not soggy like sweet potato fries can be. Plan to "just eat one more" until they're gone!!
Service is always excellent!! Nikki and Rachel are great. All of the food is delicious so it makes it super hard to choose. Keep being awesome!!
Great food, but horrible service. The server was obviously new had no idea what a dirty martini was and was not very attentive.
Food was very good. Our dirty martini's were made wrong-twice. Pretty disappointed.
Family dinner with grand parents.
Great place for get- togethers. Great selection of beers. Good food.
Great place to hang out with friends or for a date. Great food and great drinks.
This is one of the restaurants my family enjoys to dine at for majority our celebrations. This past Friday wasn't our best visit. Service was ok. Our dinner took close to an hour but as usual it still was delicious.
Had pizza and steak tacos, delicious! Great service too! Definitely come back
Had a great lunch at Lucky Monk. Everyone loved their meal.
Took my family there to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. the service is great the food was great and we had a great time there.
I have been here before. It was a great experience. The other couple enjoyed as well. I will return and hopefully use the outdoor patio area!!
Patio was great . Service was slow at best to many tables for one server. Asked for my drink up came on the rocks. Food ok
Nice place for a date not noisy drinks are good so is the food and the outside patio is really nice
All 4 of us had a great meal which we enjoyed.
We had dinner on the patio and it was delightful! Great experince!
