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.

The Lucky Monk Ratings and Reviews
We brought friends with us this time that hadn't been to Lucky Monk before and they loved it. They were impressed with the beer selection and really enjoyed their food. The portions were so generous that all of us took home a doggy bag! I really enjoy the salmon and the french fries. I am Celiac and they have a good selection of meals for me to choose from and the wait staff are very aware of the special handling of my food and I really appreciate that.
A little disappointed with this visit compared to the first time we dined here. Service was slow, drink refills were not timely and were incorrect, the food was just “ok” compared to EXCELLENT the last time were were went. Hopefully next time is better again!
Our waitress was awesome😊 She was super sweet with great suggestions. She was very knowledgeable about the menu. Did not rush us when it was time to leave.. all our burgers were delicious and the tacos were amazing. We also had the calamari and the cheese curds which were both delicious. We highly recommend
We came at 3pm early for an early dinner in bar while watching a baseball playoff game. Bartender was also assigned to wait tables. Bar was not busy at all. But bartender more worried about serving bar patrons than waiting on tables. Otherwise. Good food. Burgess. Fries. Good drinks. Will still return in future.
The food is always fantastic. Seriously...it's awesome. But the service is always hit or miss. This time it was very slow...over an hour in and out, and we ordered right away. Food took forever to come out, and our waitress was often nowhere to be found for loonnnggg periods of time. This is a trend.
We were seated quickly. We were not rushed and had the opportunity to peruse the menu. One of the old favorites was gone, so my friend was disappointed, as she had talked about her Elvis burger all day. My order got lost and my frind's order was incorrect. While there were apologies, we were not offered any compensation. That was a miss. If it was my first time visiting I wouldn't go back. Since there have been better experiences in the past, I'll go again, not with out-of-town guests who felt badly eating their dinner while I had nothing.
I have been to The Lucky Monk on several occasions and enjoyed it but this visit was extremely disappointing. Our server, Clementine couldn't have been less interested in waiting on us. We started with the warm pretzel appetizer which was supposed to be served with a beer cheese dipping sauce which was actually more like a queso with peppers in it which I do not like. I asked our server if they had another cheese sauce for the pretzels. She offered a BBQ ranch and more of the tomato sauce which I said would be fine. She never brought either of these.
When we ordered our entrees, I had some questions about what ingredients were in a couple of the dishes. She could not answer but did go check with the kitchen. After she took our order, we barely saw her again. She walked by our table numerous times & didn't bother to check on us or even make eye contact. Our sodas & waters were nearly empty by the time we were able to get her attention.
To top off our evening, she dropped our check off without even asking if we wanted dessert or needed anything else. She obviously couldn't wait to get us out which led me to believe that she was annoyed that the hostess had seated the two of us at a booth for 6ppl. If that was her issue, it should've been discussed with the hostess & not taken out on the customer.
I used my $50 Open Table gift certificate for this meal & I wish I had picked somewhere else to enjoy my free meal. It will be awhile before I decide to go back to The Lucky Monk.
Our serve was terrible she never smiled didn't check on us a nearby server young guy was more attentive to us. Her affect was flat and seemed Nnoyec to be there. Never filled our water or soda, didn't ask how our food was. The other server helped us get what we needed. We had no silverware even.
I would have to request another server if we returned
