REVIEWS & PRESS
"Just on the basis of suds alone, this English style pub chugs up high marks with brews from 10 countries including 3 varieties of Chimay, the heady Belgian beer brewed by Trappist Monks. But Old Monk has other charms too, from its dark wood paneling fashioned from confessional booths...." - Dallas Observer Listing
"Sure, this dimly lit ar has all the trappings of a European pub, including draft beer from Ireland, England, Belgium and Germany. But the food is the standout here, with arguably the best fish & chips in town. People watching is a prime." - D Magazine, September 2004
"Those outside the 'hood may know Feargal McKinney's place as a watering hole, but those within walking distance pop in regularly for crispy fish and chips, divine steamed mussels, and frites to go with their imported beers. Full bar.

"At The Old Monk you can select from 14 bers on draft and nearly 50 bottled beers, including Belgian varieties so strong they could intoxicate Nate Newton. Of course...its the cozy feel of the place, highlighted by dark wood floors, elegant antiques and round, polished tables that...render us a little nostalgic. While the place is always full, the bartenders have a knack for handling your drink requests quickly and perfectly, giving patrons the best of both worlds: a fun, livlely atmosphere and top-shelf service." - Dallas Observer - Best of Dallas 2007
