Excellent place for great drinks and brunch. You will not be disappointed! Highly recommend the bloody Mary's. We had the chipped beer covered burrito and black and blue burger. Excellent food and service!

Really surprised when my husband and I took our first bites. It's highly unusual for us to return food to the kitchen, but for the ample menu pricing we had to. My husband said he had never been served cold home fries in any restaurant before. Neither had I. We ordered cranberry juice to go with our brunch dish. The... More

We have been coming here for years and they never disappoint. The food is awesome, the drinks are good, and the place just has a comfy, down-to-earth feel. The Monkey Garden is a great place to hang out in the warmer months. But the breakfast at Three Monkey's is what keeps me coming back!

We've been to Three Monkees on several occasions including brunch, lunch and dinner, inside and outdoor. The bar scene inside and out always has a good vibe frequented by regulars. A good selection of beers though nothing special. Brunch was OK though we arrived towards the very end. Want to try it again. Sandwiches are very generous portions. Cheese steaks... More

The crab balls were wonderful and my scallop salad was quite yummy. The prices were a bit high for a casual lunch stop but it was nice to dine outside. They had about 20 beers to choose from and the waitress was very attentive. Great place to hang out with friends for a casual lunch.

Quirky little place right near the Torresdale Train Stop - very different menu, everything I have tried there has been excellent. Always very crowded and noisy...which shows how popular it is. But don't go there for any romantic/intimate meals.

We LOVE this place! It's got that cool vibe captured whether you are inside enjoying the bar or outside in the patio / garden area. Food was wonderful! Come for lunch, dinner or just have a drink with friends ...they supply the atmosphere.
