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.

Seated immediately with reservation. Delicious hummus with lots of fresh vegetables. All four entrees were very good. Enjoyed the flavored ice tea.

Second time here. First time there I ordered the Monk Burger well done and it was really good an juicy.
This second time there, today, I ordered the Monk Burger again well done, only this time a double Burger, and I was surprised because it was EXTREMELY DRY. It was DEFINITELY over cooked, or over held, one of the driest burgers I have ever had.
My wife and I were with my 5-year old daughter, she was tired and irritable, so I didn’t want to send it back, and then have to wait, so I ate as much as I could before the dryness was too much. The edges of the Burger were actually burnt.

Had it just been my wife and I -no daughter -I would have sent it back.

Too bad ...the first time there was really nice

The service was horrible. We sat with no silverware after we had already gotten our food. The server dropped the appetizer plate on the table, spilt one of the guests beer and didn't even offer to replace the beer. I was with another couple and the server took there appetizer order but we were never asking if we wanted one, she just walked away. Then when it came to ordering she took everyone's order except for my boyfriends, he literally just had to tell her and then repeat himself after because she didn't hear the first time. Was never asked if anyone wanted another drink. She was MIA the majority of the time. It was my first time there and from that experience I will not be returning. Taylor either was having a bad day or serving just isn't for her!

Food was average. Service was good. We were celebrating a birthday. I put that on the reservation, but there wasn’t any recognition of the celebration.

It was freezing in the bar area. Heat was not working and we were not informed of the situation.

When my wife and I first visited, we loved the place. Each consecutive time we have gone back, the experience has been worse and worse. Most recently, seated at a table near the back, where it was drafty. Medium burger was very nearly well done. The lettuce and tomatoes tasted like week old produce.
The waitress was nice though.
