Reviewed 27 July 2013

Always a great beer selection. Good place to watch a game. Unfortunately you are made to feel like you are inconveniencing the bartender if you want a drink. Doesn't matter if there are 20 people at the bar or 3, you are going to wait until they decide they are ready to help you

Who needs Applebee's to be your favorite neighborhood bar and restaurant when you have the Blue Monkey Restaurant & Bar to go to? This neighborhood pub offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu as well as a great bar. In the dining room, there are tvs at many of the booths where you can watch your favorite game or tv. show. The menu prices are quite reasonable and there are often daily specials offered. Everything from great appetizers, including wings to sandwiches, soups, and great dinner entrees are on the menu. It is a great place to stop by for a drink and a bite before or after going to the Willowbrook Golf Course which is a few blocks down the street. Often during the week and weekends, there is live entertainment. Most of the crowd is in their 20's-40's with many locals who come daily or week to week to hang out and relax.
Even though there are many sports bar type restaurants out there, this one seems to be a bit more friendlier and special... and besides... it is always great to patronize those local businesses.
The North Catasauqua area is great and this restaurant and bar is a perfect fit to this small town.

place is joke and will never step foot in that place again. My hope is that someone with credibility takes it over and manages it properly as it should be.

Had a very nice dinner with my family. Kids could enjoy tv while we waited for our food ( wasn't a long wait). Clams were a great deal and good drink specials. Impressive microbrew bottle list. Server was very accommodating and Pleasent. Would recommend to anyone looking for great food with enjoyable atmosphere.

I like the atmosphere in the monkey better than any of the other local bars. The bar good it good... Cheesesteaks, burgers, fries, etc. I tried their dinners (steak) once and was disappointed. Stick with typical pub fare and you won't be let down.
