    The herb chicken sandwich is the best meal. Otherwise stick to apps and get the Bloody Mary! Yum

    The food is great. Either make a reservation or know someone who works here / work here yourself to get a table.

    Beer may be king at this suburban brewery, but the Cafe Monk — combining Fireball Cinnamon whiskey, coffee, Kahlua and Frangelico — shouldn't be ignored. Read more

    Craft beers were blah, cocktails blah. Food was ok. Not sure I would go out of my way to go there again.

    Great food. I've had the Hot Head burger and the Santa Fe Chicken Salad. Both great. Haven't tried the beer yet though. There was a disappointing lack of real monks.

    The pizza was pretty delicious. $8.95 flight nice to check out their beers. Not a lot of strong beers, Belgians are their forte'. They also several rotating taps

    MN foodie says: excellent beer and food! The portion sizes are large, so split something, unless you are a college student and have a lg. appetite. Wish we had one in MN. Took a growler home with me.

    Spicy ketchup is actually spicy. Also try the Caesar salad... I know not typical for a burger joint but it's very good. Also if your looking for a beer look no further than the fallen angel.

    Pretzel trio is fantastic. Burgers are consistently great. Their beers are good, too. Very nice outside seating, especially if you're under the pergola.

    The food is so good, we keep coming back, even though the service is always unbelievably bad. Every time. Not sure why we keep doing this to ourselves.

    Burgers are large and tasty, but expensive. I did not try the brew but I'm told it is very good. Worth a try for a beer or burger connoisseur.

    Screw the table seating, hit the bar and get their sampler, it will be the best decision you made that day, after deciding to brush your teeth.

    Great food and custom beer. Get the Trappist Trio and you'll get three of their best sides for really good price. Burgers are excellent as well as their chicken Parmesan & Twisted Chicken sandwich.
