I had heard about the Blue Monkey somewhere and after leaving the Civil Rights Museum, we were driving around and saw it. It was around lunch time so we stopped. The atmosphere is typical sports bar with a very laid back feel. We were welcomed immediately and seated. Our server was at the table in no time and brought back... More

We never fail to eat at the Blue Monkey when we are in Memphis. We love to sit on the patio in good weather but inside is awesome, too. The blue cheese Monkey Chips are awesome as a snack or appetizer. I had the blackened chicken wrap today and it is really good. My BFF had the chicken fried steak... More

Food was great! Service was great! Great spot for business lunch during the day not sure about the night atmosphere. I would definitely revisit this place.

Everything here is good, but they do an especially nice job with the country club salad. Its big and comes with a variety of ingredients, presented in a way that you can mix each bite the way you want it. Not cheap, $12, but worth it. Good ingredients and plenty of them. The only negative is that they give you... More

Attended a business luncheon. Ordered the fried chicken lunch platter only to be told they no longer offer fried chicken any longer during lunch. (Only reason I didnt give 5 stars- menu's need to be updated) So I opted for the BBQ bacon burger. Wow! Was fresh & hot but I regretted ordering it because it was messy with bbq... More

Expect to get a house salad if you don't eat meat, dairy or eggs. They were unable and unwilling to make me pasta without meat sauce. Seriously disappointing.

The chat more service was so poor. I didn't even get to order a drink because the bartender was so rude. They act as if they don't even see you once you sit down. This has happened on numerous occasions

Friendly staff with excellent customer service skills for a lunch stop on the Riverfront trolley route near the Civil Rights Museum. Fast service, delicious food especially the Philly cheesesteak. Nice wine and large selection of bottled beers. Mike the owner took time to talk to us and find out our views. Much appreciated, and we'll be back next time we... More
