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...More

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.

This restaurant does not disappoint for the atmosphere, service and the menu selection. You have a choice to sit outside at the patio/garden area, inside at the dining or the bar area. The menu offers a nice variety. Check the blackboard selection. A recent choice...More

Great place to get a meal and drinks on a Friday after a long work week. Patio bar & seating reminds you of a shore atmosphere. Food selection should fit most eaters, however the server was less than interested in working. We'll be back, but...More
