One of my favorite places in all of GR! Honestly they have the best burgers in town and best beer selection!!!Think up-scale bar food with any drink option you can think of... beer, wine, cocktails, cbd water, and lots of NA options!The food is awesome, so many different options to choose from.The entire staff is super friendly and accommodating! The vibe is that of a modern Belgian pub with so much space!
Went during happy hour specifically for the cheese curds. Was disappointed to get a small bowl of curds and was hoping the bowl was bigger during regular prices, otherwise that's a huge ripoff. Curds are very salty, burgers lack flavor, fries are okay. The fried pickles were pretty good and their ranch is paired great with them.No on site parking, food is only meh. Probably won't go back, but I do have to say the staff is fantastic here.

The wait staff are super friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere is nice and I've enjoyed the events they've had on their rooftop in the past. The food is hit or miss. The fried pickles are amazing, however, the $5 "chicken" that's optional on a salad isn't fit for human consumption. I rarely, if ever, can't eat something and last night was the first time in years that I couldn't eat something presented to me. I paid $5 more to have a piece of overcooked, COLD, chicken added to my salad. I've never actually chewed on a dog toy before, but I had to imagine that consuming that chicken was close to what it would be like. Super tough, chewy, and bland. I think it must've been cooked weeks prior and forgotten in the back of the fridge before it found its way to my plate. I did mention it to the staff, but by the time the bill came I was three drinks in and sort of forgotten about it.
Visiting from out of state, cool spot. Didn't try the food but menu looked good. Bartenders were attentive, one of the guys recommended Cloud Candy, which was really cool. Then tried the Rainbow Sherbet, again super cool beer smelled exactly like it but wasn't sickly sweet. Also tried the Apple Crisp and it was literally like drinking a pastry. Will definitely be come back.
Fantastic smash burgers. Great beers available!
This is in our neighborhood, and to be honest, I'm a little mad....that I waited so long to try it out. I envisioned a dark place with tons of super strong or sour beers and blah food. It is nothing like that. Super bright and tons of beer options. I was also concerned that my kids would not fit i to the scene, also not a thing here.The food was amazing, literally one of the best burgers I have had in a very long time. We also had the fried cheese curds and stuffed mushrooms.....so so good. Kids were very pleased with their pizzas. We even had a spill, and we we did not feel that any wait staff were annoyed. This place will be a regular in our rotation for sure. I highly recommend it.Kid-friendliness: The kid menu is good, and even though there was no dessert menu, the waitress found 2 scoops of ice cream for them. Such a good experience!

7 monks usually has great food, but this last time was awful. Everyone's food came out cold and drier than the Sierra desert. The service was still great, but the food was not. Kelly is still the best bartender, though.
We just happened to show up on a day when they were having a Yahtzee tournament. We were too late to be in the tournament ourselves but had fun watching the competition. Also, this place was on our list for the impressive stouts they had available. If you're looking for some unique beers, this is the place to visit!

Large selection of craft beers, with some international options. The service is prompt and friendly! Consistent experience as we have visited over the years. We highly recommend this restaurant! ??
7 Monks was a nice place for a date night with my wife. It was quiet and comfortable. Our service was good and our food/drinks were fantastic. The menu is limited but what they have, they do well. We ordered the fried pickles, get those, trust me! I also had their hot chicken sandwich, it was delicious but not hot, definitely not Nashville hot chicken like what was expected.All in all, this is a great place for delicious drinks and tasty food. We will be coming back!
Consistently disappointed with the service at Seven Monks. When we arrived, they were on a 10-15 minute wait. We put our name in and sat down. After a few minutes, two spots at the first come first serve bar rail opened. We cancelled our name at the host stand then sat in the two vacant seats. There were still dirty dishes because we say down pretty quickly after the two people got up, but that wasn't an issue for us. We pushed the dishes forward then scanned the menu QR code. 15 minutes went by without the dishes being cleared or us being greeted by any staff member working the bar or floor. However, they did serve two different groups of people who walked up to the service rail while we waited.
The staff here is extremely accommodating and friendly! They don’t make you feel bad for asking to verify if a menu item contains an allergen or sensitivity.Not all establishments understand allergens/sensitivities but they definitely do.The food was good too ??Definitely recommend!
Amazing beer you cannot find anywhere else all in the same place plus excellent food!
Great local beer selection and the place is very spacious. Didn't try the cocktails but they looked very appealing.

Good but isn’t anything crazy. I found a menu item I enjoyed over the years and it’s been getting worse since. The best thing about this place is the location, time of service (never busy), and the chance they have a rare beer or unique brewery on tap. Jester King was in awhile back and it was fun. If 7 monks ever went deeper on a menu, steak and frites, chicken broccoli. Etc. take this to a new level.But 15 dollars for a dry wrap is high.
