Blue Monkey is a great bar in midtown. I rarely think about it for some reason. Every time I go there, I vow to go more regularly. The wait staff is always friendly. It seems there is always a drink special going on. And they have good food.
On this particular visit, I happened to be there at lunch time. They have plate lunches. I had the hamburger steak, which comes with a drink, bread and two sides. The bread was good. The hamburger steak was typical and covered in gravy. The highlights were the veggies. I had the spinach which was great. It came with plenty of cheese, which I love. The greens were also great. The hamburger steak is available every day. The price for the plate lunch is 9.95, a bargain, I think.
I didn't get a soft drink (which comes with it); I went with a ghost river beer (a Memphis made beer).
I have been here multiple times. They also have a great steak with blue cheese. The only problem with this bar is that they do allow smoking, and I'm not a smoker.
