Love going to this place. Went this last Sunday and ate brunch. There brunch is probably some of the best I have ever had there. Eggs,biscuits,gravy,bacon,spicy potatoes I was in heaven!!!!
Also if u go any other time u wanna get the hot wing egg rolls they are the bomb !!!!!!!
Very mediocre meal I actually expressed my dislike of the food to server asked for something else instead cause as you can see I at least tried this expensive school lunch.The other two pictures are what I expected.Instead this meal was literally forced on me never again!
Pulling up to The Blue Monkey, parking was plentiful although we parked across the street and walked over.
Walking in, we were informed we had to pay a $5 cover. Wth? Was there a concert? A live band? Or a theme night? Nope, just standard for their establishment to keep the rift raft out. We paid the cover and proceeded to seat ourselves by the bar since me and my buddies just wanted a place to have a few drinks and munch on something.
The bartender was friendly as we ordered some mixed drinks. They had a pretty big menu so we asked one of the patrons who sat next to us who seemed to be a regular what she would recommend. She suggested the fish dish and her husband recommended the Philly cheese steak. We tried out the Philly cheese steak, chicken cheese steak, and the country fried steak platter. We ordered a few more rounds before our food came out.
The dishes itself was okay. Nothing to brag about. Just typical frozen foods that was heated up. But it was good for bar food. Honestly, I was just a little disappointed that we had to pay $5 each just to eat and drink. They should wave that if the patrons are eating or apply that to the tab. Especially with no event going on. Im not cheap by any means since I know we generously tipped the bartender. But Oh well, atleast the drinks got me giddy and I did leave full.
The blue monkey will always be a midtown favorite. I love the plate lunches and the buffalo chicken egg rolls are fire good! The lady that works the lunch shift (bartender) is so awesome! I think people sleep on the blue monkey food way to much. It's delicious ! The Mac n cheese and the twice baked potatoes are awesome! Give the brunch a chance too!!!! I love the Blue Monkey food!
I always get the same order here, The Country Club Salad with mixed greens, turkey, Monterey and cheddar cheeses, fresh bacon and tomatoes.
It is the HUGEST salad and you will be STUFFED. I do not know why, but the way they prepare this salad is delectable.
This is also a great place to enjoy trivia night or karaoke. They also have pool tables.
Keep in mind that because of Tennessee laws, the bar can get smoky from cigarettes late at night.
This is a great spot for a quick lunch or to meet a group of people.
Aside from the great salads, they're known for having great steak deals and generally good food.
Go to The Blue Monkey!
