Pretty hoppin on a Friday night. Atmosphere was cool and laid-back. No blaring music, just a lot of people seemingly having a good time. Has an outside patio that is partially open and partially covered, with plenty of space. The covered part had picnic tables and the uncovered part had regular tables. Selection was good with a nice array of Belgian brews and American Crafts. I thought the draught options were a little slim. Had a few Texas brews, and was hoping there would have been more. I've noticed the lack of local brews at a few places in Dallas. What up with that? The waitress was friendly, but mostly business, which works well for me, as she kept the drinks full and was on top of it. If I lived in this area of Dallas I could see the Old Monk being a stomping ground for me.

Many of the reviews cover my complaint: not enough beer.
An example of the shortage of beer is the Draft list on the chalk board - my husband asked about one and was told it was in a bottle. He noted that it was on the board but the waitress pointed out that only the top two beers are draft and the other 5 were labelled as bottles.
We are used to more than 2 rotational beers so we didn't even notice.
I had the Franconia Hefeweizen and enjoyed it as usual but I'd really wanted something appropriate to the cool weather. It was $5.50.
My husband had the Duvel Single for $8.
I kept telling my husband we could come another time and try it when there wasn't such a crowd but then I looked at the beer list and couldn't find a reason to go again. I went through the argument three different ways and still arrived at the same conclusion.
Many more better places to spend my money.
I reviewed the atmosphere low because it was smoky, noisy and didn't have enough seating. I reviewed the quality as poor because I went here to try some good beers and they had nothing I wanted to try.
