My usual reason to go to the Old Monk is for the fish and chips(in the old english style) and for the extensive selection of scotches and beers.

They also have a full bar but what about the beer. Yes they gave a lot of imports. I had a Ruben if I recall the menu said pastrami but it tasted and looked like corn beef. I would return. Did I mention the beer?

Good menu. Outside patio a plus for people watching and more. Plus a Covered outdoor patio is nice also. Smoking a bit of an annoyance as it is allowed. A few TVs for sports watching. All in all worth a repeat visit especially on days for outside seating.

I know American's don't walk, but at least you can have an alcoholic drink if you do! We sat on the patio and had a very laid back meal. Very much a pub, but with reasonable food. We had a reuben and fish and chips, with 3 beers for $37.88. If you like a pub atmosphere this is the place... More

Great place to hang out with friends and drink! Only gave a 4 star because when we ordered food, the order got misplaced and we had to wait awhile. However due to this mishap, the manager took off some of the food and the first round of drinks.

The Old Monk is one of the founding establishments of the Knox Henderson area of Dallas, and still has not lost it's cool. A great place for a crafted brew and a tasty bite in a setting that is a pretty good copy of an Irish pub. Sit inside or out on the patio and watch the street come alive... More

This could be the best fish and chips in town. But that isn't all there is here. This is a great pup, nothing fancy, just what you want a pub to be. Good selections of beer and spirits and friendly people that want to make you come back. This has it all. Pretty wide range of scotch and beers, and... More

After a long travel day, stopped here for some drinks and a bite to eat. My daughter knew exactly what to get. Cheese Fries, Pistachio Fried Chicken, a cheese & salami board, silver dollar burgers and a Reuben sandwich. Good drinks and service on the outdoor deck made it a wonderful evening.
