We went here for lunch on a Tuesday. I've heard that the burgers were good so that's what we ordered. Oh boy was it a tasty massive burger. There is an option to get a double patty but I couldn't imagine how you could fit it in your mouth! On the side was a huge amount of crispy fries served... More

Been to the Monkey Tree multiple times and the staff is wonderful. The food is typical pub grub with a much more overpriced restaurant twist. The ownership is lacking people skills and constantly demean the staff in front of customers. Alcohol plays a big factor in their choices and it's a shame because as for Yellowknife pub staff go they... More

Has a good pub feel to it. Nice with so many people knowing so many. That was awesome. Food was okay but they got my order wrong. To somewhat fix it I just asked for Frank's hot sauce on the side. They charged me for the Frank's hot sauce as much as they charged for a side of French fries.... More

We had great burgers and fries, nice atmosphere and friendly fast service. A little pricey but I expected the food to be more expensive in Yellowknife. They serve pub food, lots of stuff on the walls to look at. nice little place. BUT expect big prices for bar drinks and beer.

We went to Sam's Monkey Tree for wings and we were very pleased with the wing flavour choices. On wing night you can get 10 wings for $3.00. That is a very reasonable price for wings in Yellowknife.

food was pub grub which is exactly what was expected. Server was friendly but very hung over and it was evident that she didn't want to be there

Don't be turned off by some of the reviews, our experience with Sam's Monkey Tree Pub was really good (and I'm a picky eater). We tried a pizza and a pasta and both were really tasty and well priced. The quiet atmosphere was expected of a pub at midday, but there's nothing wrong with that. We left very satisfied and... More

We go here pretty often when we don't feel like cooking or want pub style food. We had their fish and chips once, which was ok (batter could have been done longer) and their wings a few times. We really liked their wings as they are really cripsy. They have our favorite beer (Moosehead) from our home (NB) on tap,... More
