Consistently best craft beer tap list in South Jersey. With 38 taps, you are virtually guaranteed to find a brewer/beer style that you'll enjoy. Also have a compelling craft bottle selection. Very spacious with plenty of seats both at the bar and at tables/booths. Fairly quiet atmosphere - definitely a place where you can enjoy a conversation, and don't have to scream to be heard. Food is definitely above average for pub food (burgers/paninis) - and the occasional special is truly excellent, even without the "pub" disclaimer (e.g., short rib sandwich, pork belly sandwich). Service has always been solid in my experience. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for great beer and good food.

The food, service, and beer selection are always outstanding. If you just turned twenty-one and want to catch the Flyers game, or hit on girls your age, or dance the night away, don't go to Blue Monkey. But if you want a quiet place to meet with friends and enjoy great food and drink, then run there. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is top-notch. Blue Monkey Tavern is a true neighborhood restaurant and bar where you can feel at home. Bottom line: it's undoubtedly the best place in Merchantville and truly a hidden gem of South Jersey. Just don't tell anyone so us locals can keep it for ourselves. Deal?

First time here, was very excited to go. Beer list looked great, menu was nothing impressive but enough selections to have a decent meal, or so was thought. My wife, who is a vegetarian, ordered a Veggie Panini. She took a few bites and realized something was off. She was given a Salmon Panini instead of a Vegetarian Panini. 16 years she's been a dedicated vegetarian and this brought her to tears, she had to leave before we could really address it. A lame apology came, which we would have accepted, but the bill and meal was still charged, except for the Panini which was wrong and not eaten anyway. We paid $30 to have our night ruined and have my wife's beliefs and way of life trashed with basically little accountability. I won't set foot and don't recommend anyone set foot anywhere near here. It's not worth it for lackluster food and there are plenty of places that sell good beer with clearer lines. Seriously, seriously disappointed.

Owner is incredibly rude to customers and staff too. A request for a taste of beer will make you wait for several minutes before you are served. I saw the owner bullying one of the bartenders who was then very upset and unpleasant to the customers. I guess I can't blame her... The food isn't bad but not great. The owner claims to have a lot of beer but really doesn't and the few times I've been there he didn't have any of the better beers on tap. Many other near by places are much better.

Never had a bad meal here! The burgers are exceptional...the cheese steak was better than anything in South Jersey (it's all about the bread). The beer selection...so much to choose from!!! I've been back 4x since my first visit, so it's safe to say it's a winner!

40 beers on tap from all over the US, the UK and Europe. An excellent pub.
