Food was very good, but it took a very long time for the dinner to arrive at the table. I'd say we ordered and the apps came within 5-10 minutes which was great. We then waited over 30 minutes for the meal. I also had noted when making the reservation that this was for a birthday dinner. We didn't order dessert because we had a cake at home, but no mention of a birthday was ever made by the server. I expected her to ask who's birthday we were celebrating or bring out a piece of cake or something.

We went here as a date night with another couple. It was a Saturday night and THANK GOODNESS we had a reservation. The place was packed when we arrived (and for good reason). I loved the ambiance, food- everything. And the waiter was great- he patiently waited on us for our drinks for awhile before we ordered. We really appreciated him endulging us.

We were out of town for the evening and wanted to stop for dinner somewhere new. Found this place with good reviews on Yelp. We had a great time. Other customers were even telling us we made the right choice on where to dine. Good food, good beer, great service. If we find ourselves in the area again we’ll be sure to stop in.

I really enjoy luck monk. It has a nice upscale casual atmosphere, with small private rooms. It is my favorite burger place so its hard not to have one when I go, but sometimes I try. Good appetizers, love the Brussel sprouts, and pizza is good too. Its a nice place to meet for drinks and appetizers as well. Bar area has TV's for sports but never gets too loud, so you can still enjoy table conversation. Great outdoor patio. I'm not a beer drinker so I don't come for the beer, sorry. The service is hit or miss, never bad but they seem inexperienced sometimes. This last visit, I was with a group of ladies and no one seemed to be bussing our table. And there were plenty of help at the time. I have yet to have anything I didn't like including salads and chili. The kitchen is always on point.

This was our second visit and, both times, the food was great. Good quality for the money and we enjoyed the house-brewed beers. However, our visit on a Sunday afternoon was nothing short of a disaster w/r/t service. We arrived five minutes early for our reservation to be told, rudely, at the front desk, that another party was accidentally seated at our table. As though we were inconveniencing the hostess, she told us it would be at least 20 minutes. We should have left then.

After finally being seated, no apology given, we ordered appetizers, beers and main dishes. Our server was kind, polite and tried to make the most of what was clearly a terrible situation in the kitchen. Food took ages to arrive and our main course was served almost 90 min after our reservation time. One appetizer, the cheese curds, came with the basket filled 3/4 of the way with lettuce rather than curds.

Our waitress did her best to apologize for the delays, poor service and bad attitude of the hostess but no one else offered an apology or any sort of compensation. Really liked the food here...would really stop and think before coming here again, though. Overall a nice afternoon somewhat damaged by the poor, careless service.

Booked a table last minute after a movie! We were seated as soon as we checked in. We had a nice sized booth for two of us. Our server Mike was excellent!!!! He recommended an item off the menu that was just want I wanted similar to something on the menu but so much more to my liking!! He was personable, attentive, & polite! We love great service and admire hard workers! Keep it up, Mike! We hope to be back and see you again!

The food is good, once they actually get it right. They are very inflexible and can't even make a substitution in their vegetable medley because everything is "pre-weighed." It was EXTREMELY loud. Our service was not great, from incorrect orders to needing to ask for drink refills several times and then having them basically thrown at us, to waiting over 15 minutes once the check was delivered to have anyone come back to the table, and then another 10 minutes to figure out how to take an Open Table reward certificate. (This last feedback is for Open Table- you need a better method, it is EXTREMELY difficult to redeem points and then the restaurants don't seem to know what to do.).

I would recommend The Lucky Monk but only to get a burger. Their burgers looked awesome and that is what most of the tables around us were having delivered. Our food took 45 minutes to get which was way to long and it wasn't very good. I had the mac n cheese with a parmesan crusted piece of chicken. The mac n cheese had a metallic taste to it the crust on the chicken was overcooked. The boyfriend ordered the spaetzle and we think pork. They served it with capers so the flavor was off.

Lucky Monk is always very good! We were here for lunch before a movie at the next door AMC theater. The close proximity makes it handy when going out for lunch/dinner and a movie.
They have a great selection on their menu...this time I tried the Rueben which was piled high.....very high! Yum!

We enjoy Lucky Monk - our service was a bit slow for an order of tacos and a salad. We got seated next to a bunch of large parties early on which made the noise level go up when our reservation was at 4:45 and fairly early.

Long awaited birthday celebration, the food was just wrong, the waitress failed, but the manager was sincere and truly cared. We’ll check this one off as an off night and visit again, as the manager promised they could and would do better!

Note - the service rating is low NOT due to the server, but due to the load on the servers. Busy SAT night and I was about ready to get up and help our server handle the tables. Apparently, servers and cooks decided not to come in that night... Management should staff accordingly, knowing no-shows will happen.
The inside seating is very loud, hard to carry on a conversation. We sat outside and it was great. Food is great - selections are good and they are executed well. Have been here several times, but would be a ton more if the inside was a bit less loud and if they had a few more servers.

Our server was so over whelmed and rarely came to check on us. While waiting for our food, every runner that had food stopped at our table trying to give us the wrong order. Our food took more than 45 minutes to come out. When it did, my sister's "medium well" burger was rare. Sent it back and within minutes she had a new/different burger. We didn't even bother asking for the right burger because the servers seemed so confused. At least this one was cooked the way she ordered it. When the check came, the "new" replacement burger was added to the bill along with the rare burger sent back. That's a lot wrong for one visit. Probably won't go back.

I hadn't been to The Lucky Monk in a while. I always go to a restaurant thinking I'll have a salad...but here you just have to order a burger. YUM! I eat my burger without a bun, so I really am aware of texture and taste. Lucky Monk makes a delicious burger. I also ordered sweet potato fries. They were almost like churros...dusted with cinnamon sugar. They were light and crispy, not soggy like sweet potato fries can be. Plan to "just eat one more" until they're gone!!
