“Avoid the after work crowd”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

And you will actually discover a kind of rock and roll bar in Jersey City. The food is always pretty good; there is a LOT of beer choices, and you can chat up the locals.

“Average place to eat”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

I've been to this place about two times and the food and place is okay. The service though is great, the waiters very attentive. It's just not my preferred restaurant in the Jersey City Downtown area, there are many other varieties.

“I try to eat/drink there at least once on every visit to NJ”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

I enjoyed the rooftop during the summer and the 1st floor bar, those are my 2 favorite places to eat and drink at the Iron Monkey. The 2nd floor is more of a restaurant and not as much of a party environment. It does get crowed in there so the service can be slow at times but the atmosphere makes up for it (for me anyway). If you're in a hurry, don't come here at the busy times right after work. If you have some time ot hang out, this is a great place to meet friends.

“Good beers, OK food”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

This is a very good local spot for those who do not feel like going into the city. They have a great selection of beers and the food is not bad for a bar. It is better in the summer when the rooftop is open.

“An hour to get a beer?”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Took 20 minutes to get someone to take our drink order when the place was almost empty; then another 30 minutes for the beers to get to the table. Really weird. Middle of a Saturday afternoon. Never again.
