We arrived (with no reservation) at 5:30 for an hour wait on a Thursday. Our group of 4 got lucky to slip into open seats at the bar top. Jake C was FANTASTIC! Fun, well versed in the menu and had excellent recommendations. The music was a perfect volume and great to listen to. I'd highly recommend Monkey pod for... More

Our group of four (two couples) found a spot at the end of the bar and decided to eat there rather than getting a table. Great choice! Jake C, the bartender/server was fantastic. He made excellent recommendations (that we ordered) and was fun to talk to. Monkeypod offers the same farm to table type of experience that Merriman's does, but... More

Went there during happy hour 330 to 530 and was able to enjoy their happy hour specials of food and drink. Delicious 9 inch pizzas for 9$ plus a large selection of beers on special...I think they had 36 to choose from. a busy spot with seating both inside and out.

This is a busy, noisy, bustling place. Looks like it might be just another mall-crawl restaurant, but if you can get by the line at the door and the frenzy of getting seated and served, you are in for a treat. We ate outdoors which helped the noise level, although a couple of families with kids, just off the evening... More

Mai Tai Heaven! This was the best drink I've ever had! Presentation and flavour was outstanding. The menu is very good and the food was delicious! The service was great and the ambiance in the restaurant is classy but not stuffy. I will be back again!

Service is top notch as typical with Merriman restaurants. With all the hard surfaces and high ceilings it's impossible to have a conversation without shouting and gesturing. Upscale pub food with corresponding upscale prices - for the price of a salad, I don't think I should have to provide the labor to cut the lettuce leaves into bite size pieces.... More

Went with a large group, 4 couples. Food was good, Beer was cold. Live music was a bit hard to hear. Over all, it was good. I'd recomend this restraunt.

This is a place that for sure you should make reservations. It was packed and inside was very noisy and definitely not a restaurant for a romantic quiet meal. We had to wait 10 mins even having made ours months in advance but we got a lovely table on the patio to enjoy the sunset. The atmosphere outside was far... More
