Ok, I officially love this place! Such fun in the outdoor bar area. Great Motown live music. Inside restaurant makes you think you went through the twilight zone. Doesn't match the outside at all. It really is a great place! I recommend you go here and share some smiles.

The food here is always excellent however the service at the bar is really terrible. The bartenders are not very observant. Next time we come here we are gonna sit at a table.

The Monkey Bar was within walking distance from our hotel and recommended by the desk staff - so we tried it out. There were 4 of us, and as you approach the bar - you are first drawn to the outside tiki themed area playing music and featuring a dance area. This must be a fairly popular spot, as the... More

Just an outdoor tiki bar with a big ape at the doorway to welcome you in. Home cooking was great! Good entertainment,everyone dancing. Quite a surprise! Low key yet hopping!!

Great lunch specials, excellent dinners and a fun place for drinks and dancing. Kelly behind the bar is a delight to talk to. All the servers are great.

We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. You must try the grouper dinner. In addition, there is music outside every night.

We didn't care for this restaurant. Food wasn't that good, the fish had no flavor. The waiter was abrupt. not likely to return although it appears to be a fun place for a drink outside.
