Mmm... Mussels and Belgian beer. I went into Monk's as a first timer. Walked through to the back, saw the various taps (St. Bern 12 was supposedly on tap, and it was in the back) and that the back was very crowded. So the two of us moved up to the front bar and acquired two freshly vacated seats on the end. The beer selection is superb, and the prices were not bad considering it is in Philly. Several interesting/rare taps with tons of bottles to back them up.
We ordered the mussels, which are awesome. Gonna definitely go back for them. Also ordered the tuna steak, which was also great. We were happy that the bartender would get the many beers that were on taps in the back, as we did come for the St. Bern 12.
We were scouting the place, but we are heading back as soon as we can with our other beer friends. If you are in Philly, go check them out. It is a smaller place, but worth squeezing in!

Monks needs to be on your must visit list if you are visiting Philly and love craft beer. The place is small but a wonderful atmosphere and great service. My glass was empty very little and wish I would have had to time to go back during my trip.
Food was not to my taste, they only offer a veggie cheese steak to give you an idea.
But the beer atmosphere and service more than makes up for the food.
If you skip this one you are making a big mistake folks.
