We stopped at the Lucky Monk after going to a nearby theatre for a late morning matinee performance. The outside patio was not open, as it was a bit too chilly. There is plenty of parking. The restaurant was pretty crowded, though we were seated...More

Description
When you name your restaurant after Trappist monks who've spent centuries perfecting their craft, you're serious about your beer. That's why we hired a master to craft our house brews, and why our beer list spans the globe. With everything from refreshing pilsners that match the lightness of our thin-crust pizza to dark, rich ales that stand up to our decadent burgers, you're certain to find a new favorite at The Lucky Monk. We're sure that our Prime beef burgers -- served with hand-cut fries -- will be the juiciest you've ever had. Our other house specialty, pizza, is crisp and generously topped with fresh ingredients. And we round out our menu with vibrant, flavorful salads; a handful of classic, satisfying American entrées; and some sweet surprises. Whether you're settling in at our bar or relaxing with your friends and family in our comfortable dining room, our delicious food and drink and warm welcome are sure to elevate your soul.
