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.
Was a beautiful evening outside their patio was very nice would go back there again
The only downside is that it is always very loud, but great food and service.
Food was delicious and our server was very nice and food arrived quickly
We had a group of 12, separate checks and the waitstaff did a fabulous job! Thanks!
As always, Rachel was great! We tried the avocado tacos! Yummy! Thank you for another great dinner Lucky Monk!
Our server Vicky was Great!!!
My favorite place of all time, super friendly staff
In simple terms - it was a mixed bag!
The good - Outdoor seating, appetizer was awesome, as was dessert! Wish we had only order apps and dessert!
Th bad - the fish tacos and Gluten Free menu items (but that’s somewhat to be expected - it is GF anyway!).
The ugly - drinks, namely the Martini - if you’re going to advertise as a signature drink, then it would be a good idea to teach your bartenders how to make one - it’s not rocket science! And the time lag between the appetizer and dinner was more than 30 minutes. When the manager stopped by to ask what we were waiting on, I replied “Dinner”! Our meals were then promptly serviced but it was clear that had been under the heat lamp so some time.
Food was adequate, service was good. Very loud and difficult to talk. My turkey burger was delicious (server got my order wrong) but the fries were awful - cold and limp. Yuck.
We go to Lucky Monk before every movie we see at AMC!
Always enjoy Lucky Monk. Great hamburgers and nice selection of beer (both made here and always a selection of other local beers).
Outside dining was accommodated per request and much appreciated! The welcoming committee was very nice but spoke about how everyone was stressed and it was pretty clear to us as well. Maybe it was just that people called in and they were short staffed. Our server was nice. Seemed very over capacity and stressed. Goofed both bills at our table. We all felt like we were there for 3 hours just because we couldn’t get a hold of our server. Food good, ambiance good.
Our server was great. It took a a long time to get our food. My burger was lacking flavor
I'd recommend it, but warn them that the service is extremely slow. The table behind us was seated after us yet served before us. Our server was very slow throughout the entire meal. Food was ehh, nothing to write home about.
Our go to place for burgers..Always cooked perfect & loaded with fresh cut fries...If you can save some room the appetizer pretzel or a few of the desserts are fantastic. & lots of beers to choose from..You definitely walk away with a box for the next day!
Too long for avg pizza
Service was slow. Food good.
Great food, service, and very accommodating. Booked a table outside. Got a phone call from them saying there was a pre-booked party. They then set up a great table outside.
Burgers were delicious. Waiter was awesome. Ladies at front dest friendly.
The short rib dish is disgusting. Waiter got orders wrong
We waited 45 minutes for two burgers and the table behind us waited longer and requested a manager
We have been here many many times. My husband love their cheeseburgers, and since they've changed their menu, I've loved their tacos. But lately, they've taken their chicken tinga tacos off the menu, so they only have steak, pork (with pineapple), and fish tacos. I got the fish tacos tonight, which I usually like,, and tonight they were atrocious. They had all these pickled vegetables in them, and were so 'wet' that the tacos fell apart on the first bite. I like pickled vegetables, but not everybody does! Pickled Vegetable Tacos was not what I was expecting. My husband's fries were very cold and hard. I was a server for many years, so I NEVER send things back...! And lastly, they have two Chardonnay wines. Neither have I heard of. Both just undrinkable. Why not just have ONE that people recognize and is palatable? #disappointed.
Food was over the top good! Delicious and cooked to perfection! The service was a little rough only because we got put in a back room and I felt like they forgot about us. But when the servers were at the table they were very nice and very knowledgeable on the menu!
Live music! Great food! Awesome service.... How much more could you want...
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 love Lucky Monk! It’s our go to restaurant before seeing a movie!
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.
