When you name your restaurant after Trappist monks who've spent centuries perfecting their craft, you're serious about your beer. That's why we hired a master to craft our house brews and why our beer list spans the globe. With everything from refreshing pilsners that match the lightness of our thin-crust pizza to dark, rich ales that stand up to our decadent burgers, you're certain to find a new favorite at The Lucky Monk. We're sure that our Prime beef burgers — served with hand-cut fries — will be the juiciest you've ever had. Our other house specialty is pizza. It is crisp and generously topped with fresh ingredients. And we round out our menu with vibrant, flavorful salads; a handful of classic, satisfying American entrées; and some sweet surprises.

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've been here once before and had a better experience the first time. It was shockingly packed for a Sunday night and our server must have been overwhelmed with tables because there was another waiter who had to help him so there were way too long of stretches between seeing our server and when we could have gotten refills or checked in on. What was supposed to be a quick dinner turned into a 2 hour situation because of how busy it was, plus the food was just ok and they ran out of sweet potato fries that I ordered so I was disappointed in the service and food. I'll most likely go back but my expectations won't be high.

Service was very slow and not attentive. We had to wait for drinks and also a long time for silverware. For being so busy, they could improve dining and move patrons through the restaurant more quickly if the service was more attentive and responsive.

Awesome service/waitress, good food. You were not rushed, had reservations and waited only 5 minutes. Loved it! Celebrated a birthday, and he got fresh warm donuts. Great place!

Originally seated in a very secluded back room that held absolutely no appeal, we were quickly reseated in the bar area that was much more to our liking. As always, the food was very good and the service was excellent.

Normally the food is very good, but this time a burger that was ordered medium well came out red and when a new one was cooked it was also red. Neither were past medium rare. It was so disgusting that we left without eating that burger.

I recommend that diners keep tabs on their reservation. We had one and were given a pager. We waited and then decided to check 10 minutes later. An apology and a table were given.

It is a very loud place with fine food.

Every part of the experience was really good this visit. We were there with another couple. Our server Nathan was super fun...he got our humor and joined in. We seriously wanted him to sit down with us! There was a food mistake that was corrected - we added onion straws to a burger but they came on the side replacing the fries. We were brought a big bowl of fries shortly after. Atmosphere is great, parking difficult when busy but overall we had a great time and will be back.

We had a group of 14 eat here prior to a show in the area. We ate on a Sunday at 4:30 and had made reservations. We were seated immediately and the service was good. The food was great. Our group had the pretzels as an app and they were fantastic! The pizzas were good and the burgers were great. The hummus platter was also a hit. The best thing I had was the blueberry gin drink! Will go back for sure.

The only thing that I didn’t care for was being asked if we wanted to sit at the bar when we arrived at the restaurant. I wouldn’t have made a reservation if I wanted to sit at the bar. Food and service were good.

The menu selection was limited for dinner, fine for lunch. Food took a long time to receive and my dinner was just warm, not hot. The French fries were crispy and not hot enough either. All in all disappointing and for the cost also disappointing.

Food was good, but it took relatively long to come out of the kitchen. When it finally came out, we asked for silverware and napkins. This took 7 minutes to arrive. Otherwise, the waiter was friendly, pleasant & the food was good.

Our table was ready when we arrived for lunch. I was there with a couple of colleagues from work. The waitress was a little slow to take our order, even though the restaurant was not very busy. We waited for 30 minutes for the food to arrive, and we only had 1 hour for our lunch hour. The food itself was good, but I would not go there again on my lunch hour.

The Lucky Monk continues to struggle with its kitchen problems. The service was very good. There were two of us, and my companion's patty melt was fine. My margherita pizza was sent back to the kitchen for more time in the oven, and came back five minutes later with the edges somewhat crisp and the pizza itself still quite doughy. Hard to understand that they can't figure out pizza crust when it is prominent on the menu. Too many nearby places don't have that problem.

This is our first negative experience, having been there a few times previous. We were there right when they opened on a Sunday. The service was VERY slow. Took forever to get our food. Worst of all, 6/7 orders were wrong in some way. It was almost comical that none of the orders, which weren't too difficult, were all wrong. That being said, the manager did comp our drinks and appetizers AND give us $20 in coupons. Food was decent. Just so annoying to have so many issues!

We would have preferred to not be seated in the bar, I didn’t realize I needed to ask for this considering most places ask you if bar seating is alright. It took us awhile to find our server to order food, but overall it was great.
I won’t return (or at least not sit in the bar) during March madness or another big sporting event, although no sound was playing from the TVs the other patrons were just far too loud, hence why I would not have preferred be sitting in the bar. But again, great food, great beer, and great decor!

Decided to enjoy a Mid afternoon on St Patrick's Day to watch the NCAA March Madness. Service was great, and no wait with having an open table reservation. Asked for a table in bar area and greeter sat us with no problem. Food is always great and filling. Servers are very friendly. We will be back again and again !
