I thought the other place I went to was scary until I walked into the Monkey Bar. It seems to be a Kemah thing, because this place and most of the other bars had rude bartenders. They don't seem to care if you are there or not. Took

This happened several months ago. I am a little late with writing this review. They were raided by what appeared to be ATF , U.S. Marshals and local police. I don't know what you have to do to have that happen, but that is not my

the service was bad, they were disrespectful, and at the end of the night they over charged me 100 bucks, and they did not repay me, dont waste your time, this place isnt worth it.

Cons: watch yourself

If you're looking for a place to dress up and go to, this isn't it! This is a very chill place. However, I cannot say I've ever had a bad time there. You always see the same people. In fact, I would compare it to Cheers - everyone knows your name. This does have an outdoor patio and they have bands there when it's warmer out. Overall, it's great if you just want to chill and have a few drinks. The service is great!!!

I went this weekend and really enjoyed myself to a couple of drinks. The atmosphere is up beat and the music is soothing. The prices were reasonable and service was pretty good.
