The food took over an hour to get to us and we had three small children. It was agony! And my food was cold. Not happy.

We reserved an outdoor table for dinner, and the manager told us that a private party booked the patio so the only tables available were in direct sunlight. We told him that we'd rather eat inside then and he gave us a complimentary appetizer, which was not necessary, but very much appreciated.

Good food, good time. We had an excellent waiter who made sure our order was correct and to our liking. I would go back again and try other items on the menu that I thought sounded good but didn’t order this visit. A good experience.

I had not been to the lucky monk for many years and again at this visit was very pleased. The hamburger that I had was probably one of the best that I’ve ever had and served with a smile. The price of the meal was very fair I would go many times again and recommend it to friends.

Since the LM is know for burgers, we ordered 5 different types of burgers. Here’s the rundown:
The Elvis, caramelized bananas and peanut butter sounds nuts but was delicious. The bourbon glaze on the Bourbon Monk Stout was too creamy and had no bourbon flavor. I did not care for it and sent it back (management willingly took it off our bill...very impressive). The Swiss & Shroom, Classic, and Smoke Daddy IPA BBQ were delish too.

Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of bland bourbon sauce, not enough cheese on the cheese burgers (very thin slice), and all the burgers ordered medium were under cooked to rare.

So, my advice; avoid the Bourbon Monk Stout Burger, order extra cheese, and make sure they cook the burger to your liking and you’ll love it.

Arrived 10 mins. Early for reservation. Told us they would seat us closer to reservation time. Seated 10 minutes late at a table for six as they would not open last area of restaurant. Suspect they are short on servers here as most restaurants are these days. Alex was hardly interested in us and We suspect so because we are not drinkers. He never returned to see if our meals were satisfactory or if we needed something. Just not the usual good service we are accustomed to here.

Eating indoors at The Lucky Monk would make eating on an O'Hare runway seem quiet. It is an absolute din of clamoring voices and loud TV sets with tables packed together so tightly that there is no getting away from the frenzied noise of the place. Outside is a very pretty setting, overlooking a pond with a fountain. While the music can be played at an excessively high level, it's not overbearing. Regrettably, for a restaurant open as long as this one has been, the kitchen still can't get the food out in a timely manner. Worst of all, our waitress was completely inept and totally oblivious to how bad she was. She pranced around with her seemingly 6 foot long pony tail trailing behind her, assuring each table that she'd "be right back." What for? She didn't take one's order for nearly half an hour and didn't even get it straight, when she did. She was annoying, forgetful and totally unfit for her job responsibilities. The bucolic setting doesn't begin to make up for such incredibly poor service.

The one lb pretzel was amazing. Al three dipping sauces cheddar beer, tomato and cinnamon butter were berry good . I had the nawlin’s Chicken Sandwich and it was moist and tasty. I expected it have a little spicy kick but it did not. The rest of the group had burgers and they said it did not disappoint. The service was superb . The waitress always checked in on us at the right moments. We will defiantly be coming back.

The service was incredibly slow. It took 45-55 minutes to bring out two burgers and a kids meal. Our waitress seemed to avoid talking to us or filling our drinks because she knew the food was not out yet. When we finally flagged her down she took another 10 minutes to check on the food. It was busy, but not that busy. We have dined here many times and this was the worst service we’ve had in a long time.

It is so nice to go out to eat and to find a meal for under $20.00 per person. Our waiter was as attentive as could be without hovering at our table. He was very knowledgable about the food and even offered to give us separate checks. There was not one thing more we could have asked for. This is a great place to go for a casual meal as well as a night out.

I had a club salad with chicken and my chicken was raw. I informed my waitress and the manager deducted $5 for the chicken. Do they realize how sick raw chicken can make someone? The $5 deduction was kind of a joke because that left me paying $12 for lettuce and jicama. I have been to this restaurant many times and this is my worst experience.

Went for Fathers Day busy but many empty tables . Kitchen was slow almost 45 mins and a salad came out wrong . When asked how long food would be they said “well we’re busy” when salad came out wrong “said well we’re busy”... I bet most had reservations so if you can’t handle a crowd cap the reservations . So one In group didn’t get to eat as by the time we tracked someone down others were almost done. Have been many times so know this isn’t the norm. Had it been our first time may have been our last .. everyone who got their food really enjoyed it...

The service was ok but the food was lack luster. We ordered a pizza that had chopped basil on it but the leaves were still whole with knife marks on them like they were suppsed to be separated and chopped. The Reuben was warm at best, I'm guessing due to waiting under a heat lamp for the pizza. I brought my fiancée here for her birthday and called ahead to have them bring out a surprise birthday confection/donut at the end of the meal. Not only did the hostess announce it was a birthday with our reservation as we checked in to ruin the surprise but the end of the meal dessert was never delivered to us.

The visit was much less than impressive.
