Went here Wednesday night for the first time. The patio was definitely the place to be and filled up quickly. The beer is of course great but I was surprised by how good the food was. Definitely plan on going back soon!

This is a great place overall for anybody going out for a happy hour or night out. I generally go for happy hour with coworkers. Our groups range anywhere from 4-30 people. These are the happy hours that are more like happy 5:00pm to midnight. The atmosphere is very laid back, and the music is generally good. They serve a wide variety of import beers or any mixed drinks. The food menu has variety, which mostly consist of bar food taken to the next level. I recommend the burgers.

The best part about The Old Monk is the bar and wait staff. Even at their busiest moments, I still get drinks quickly and great service all around.

It would be nice to see more live music at The Old Monk, particulary anything acoutic, but with the limited space they have it's probably best to stick to playing CDs.

The old monk has great happy hour and great beers. I have been after work once or twice and usually get a cold brewski and relax. I would reccommend checking it out.

Awesome selection of beers, coolest staff, and a very unpretentious crowd make this a great little bar for hanging out with friends. There's not a ton of seating, so be prepared to sit out on the patio...but it's great for people-watching. The food is excellent as well...love the fish n' chips.

The Old Monk is the typical neighborhood bar, but bigger and busier. The first time I went in there the bartender, Kelly, introduced himself to me and after that he never forgot my name, whether I came in once a week or once every 6 months.

This is the only place I think about when I'm in Dallas. They have the best beer selection that I've seen of any bar or restaurant in the city (mmmm...Chimay White on tap), and the food is hard to beat. Their "Better Cheeseburger" comes with a choice of several "gourmet" cheeses, including sage derby, stilton, chevrion, bruder basil, and whiskey cheddar (my favorite). Other tasty delights include the Guinness beef stew, crispy, belgian-style frites served with terragon mayo, and 5-6 different styles of oysters. I hear the bread pudding will make you cream your shorts, but I've never had it myself.

The atmosphere inside is very inviting, with dark woods and plenty of old beer relics to gaze at after you've had that 4th Maredsous 10 (one of the many delicious bottled beers they serve). The 2 patios are very popular and fill up fast when the weather is nice. Overall, the service has always been great for me, but I always end up with the same waitress so it's hard to speak about the wait staff as a whole.

The only downside is that parking can be difficult and the place fills up quickly...but there always seems to be a table open near the dartboard (if you're feeling risky). Listen to me closely...close your browser , turn off the computer, and go to the Old Monk now! A few beers and a burger later, you'll be glad you did.

Pros: Great Beer Selection, Tasty Burgers, Inviting Atmosphere

Cons: Parking, lots of trendy people

Great drink selection, great crowd, great service. I have not tried the food, but all my peers say's it's great. What other place has hot port wine with cloves? Perfect for the chilly nights! This is one of the only bars that knows how to pour a Guiness correctly. You like beer, scotch, wine, mixed drinks? It's all here without breaking the bank.

If you are looking for a chill place to drink a beer and catch up with friends this is the place you are looking for. They have so many beers to chose from and the fish and chips and french fries are sooo good (that is if you are not trying to diet). Beware of the parking though. It feels up fast and they do not have valet. Also, it can get crowded and hard to find a seat.

I tried to close out my tab only to find out that my credit card had been given to somebody else, but the bartender said not to worry because this happens all the time. Not very reassuring...

This is truly a great bar. Laid-back and relaxing. Go after a day or week of work. Catch up with old friends. It can get crowded, but not too bad. Bar service is great, and if you're lucky to get a table, service is really fast.

This is a great Pub! Just like the neighborhood bars in Chicago, its small and full of locals. The food is very good as are the prices, and they have a large selection of Beers. My fav is the Fish and Chips and the Bread Pudding is the best.

When I first moved here from California I really like this bar cuz it was not stuffy and seemed to serve pretty good food but the more often I go there it seems like the service and food are getting worse and worse. Plus, I do think the drinks are a little over priced. I guess I will have to keep looking for relaxing place.

This place is a lot of fun. I enjoy it because it has a very laid back atmosphere. It gets rather crowded on the weekends, so I would recommend getting there early if you want to sit down. If you like beer, however, it's a great place to go, as they serve a wide variety.

PROS: Nice people and a great atmosphere
CONS: Crowded on the weekends

Editorial from

This is the joint to hit up when a fish ‘'n' chips craving strikes: delicately battered and nicely fried fish, served with a massive mound of long, stringy fries. Even though the bar is owned by a couple of Irish guys who prefer that you…
