The Lucky Monk
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.
Not what it used to be, unfortunately, as far as the quality of the food.
Always a great place to have dinner!
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.
We had a great work outing for Goebbert's at The Lucky Monk! We were a large group and our server was very attentive. Everyone's food came out at the same time and it was perfect! We will definitely be back.
Service is always excellent!! Nikki and Rachel are great. All of the food is delicious so it makes it super hard to choose. Keep being awesome!!
Great food, but horrible service. The server was obviously new had no idea what a dirty martini was and was not very attentive.
Food was very good. Our dirty martini's were made wrong-twice. Pretty disappointed.
Family dinner with grand parents.
Great place for get- togethers. Great selection of beers. Good food.
Great place to hang out with friends or for a date. Great food and great drinks.
This is one of the restaurants my family enjoys to dine at for majority our celebrations. This past Friday wasn't our best visit. Service was ok. Our dinner took close to an hour but as usual it still was delicious.
Had pizza and steak tacos, delicious! Great service too! Definitely come back
Had a great lunch at Lucky Monk. Everyone loved their meal.
Took my family there to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. the service is great the food was great and we had a great time there.
I have been here before. It was a great experience. The other couple enjoyed as well. I will return and hopefully use the outdoor patio area!!
Patio was great . Service was slow at best to many tables for one server. Asked for my drink up came on the rocks. Food ok
All 4 of us had a great meal which we enjoyed.
Nice place for a date not noisy drinks are good so is the food and the outside patio is really nice
We had dinner on the patio and it was delightful! Great experince!
Always love the Lucky Monk when we can sit outside.
Although our food was good the service we received will prevent our group from returning to the restaurant in the future. One entree didn't make it to the table until the rest of the group was finishing their meals. There was no apology just continued assurance when we did see our server that 'the food is coming'.
Reservations from this site are not honored. Checked in a few minutes before reservation and continued to watch people from the street walk in and take available tables.
Best wings! Monk Beers rock. Took home a Tritica growler home! Yum! Barbecue Salmon always a good choice. Great out door ambiance. Sticky donuts for dessert, mouth watering!
Enjoyed a nice Friday evening on the patio at Lucky Monk with some friends. Great food and liquid refreshments. Outstanding service from our server (Lisa) and a nice visit from Andre the manager. Great ending to a long week.
Thanks for a great time! Our server was skilled in helping our experience be an awesome way to end the work week.
We have gone to lucky monk a few times now. Food is good but we have yet to actually have one for their special beers on tap- they’re always out. Service was friendly but extremely slow... we waited over 20 minutes for a beer and another 30 to get our check.
This place pretty cool great location and food was excellent Price's are very reasonable
Food taste and presentation excellent. Length of time from order to receipt extremely long (40 min). Server great!
Really good beer. Only had chilli but it was very good. Desserts very good.
Food = OK Beer = Very Good, Good selection of Craft Brews
Great food at a great price! Seated promptly at the nice outdoor seating.
Great beer and awesome food. A great value for your money! I keep going back time after time.
We love the Monks! Great food, drink, service, outdoor ambiance. We’re Society Members and enjoy the benefits!
We had a great experience sitting outside and our server was amazing! It was our first time ever there and we enjoyed our first time and will definitely be back!
Server was very slow. Other tables that sat after us were ordered, eaten and left before we could. Took forever to get our check.
Thankfully the food was delicious!!!
Fantastic service, super hot, fresh and delicious food.
Great food. My favs are the pretzel, cheese curds and white bean chili!
Augie created an awesome experience for our group! Thank you!
Great place to meet. Half way between Rockford and Chicago.
We always enjoy going to The Lucky Monk. The beer selection is great, and the proximity to the AMC movie theater makes it an easy choice for date night. Tonight, I had the Skillet Mac and my wife had the BBQ Salmon. I enjoyed my food. My wife wasn't as crazy about her selection. We finished off with the Cookie Skillet which never disappoints. We keep coming back because we almost always enjoy the food and the service.
