I have been here twice now while in the area for work. Its probably the "nicest" restaurant in town. The chef was on chopped or something...
being from NY, this place would probably get lost in the shuffle, but here its a swanky night out.
Its in a pretty cool old building in downtown monroe...pretty much the only thing in the area. Parking across the street. Its really big and open inside, exposed wood, and nice decor. Friendly staff as well.
It has 7 taps - 2 abitas, one southern pecan, guinness, tin roof, a stella, and covington strawberry...not bad for the area. There were a bit over a dozen bottles, most of which are macro, but the menu said they had a bunch of locals, as well as Old Rasputy, dead guy, chimay, some sam smith, unibroue, and duvel. A bit pricy, but it is the nicest place in town, and I think it has the best selection in town that Ive seen...pretty sad huh.
However, their bourbon list is amazing!! So I had a bourbon on my most recent trip.
The food is amazing. I have only had the Shrimp and Grits and the hummus. Best shrim n grits I ever had, hands down.
Well worth a try, in fact, I recommend going here! Just be prepared to spend a bit more than you probably want to.

4.19/5 rDev +1.7%

Atmosphere: I went here for lunch, so it was very laid back, no music, very wide open and airy. A bit rustic-chic, with wooden tables, booths, and ceiling. Very old brick building with pretty good decor.
Quality: Very good quality as far as food is concerned, and the one beer I had (Abita Oyster Stout) on tap was top notch.
Service: The service was friendly, attentive, and helpful with descriptions and any questions.
Selection: Previous reviewer noted the bourbon selection, and I'm a bit dissapointed I hadn't thought to ask for a menu. As far as beer is concerned, the selection is better than most of the restaurants I've been to around here -- just temper your expectations, don't go full beer snob on them.
Food: Food was excellent, I had a fried oyster arugula salad with bacon, which went so good with my Abita Oyster Stout (Bless the LORD for that beer!).
Value: A little on the pricey side, $6 for my pint, $12 for salad. (worth it in my opinion)
Overall: I would recommend it if in the area. Good place to take a hot date or meet on business. A little out of place, but I'm thankful for the refuge. Like the previous reviewer, it's not "WOW this is really sophisticated" but it is nicer than probably 95% of the area. Good food, good service, decent drinking, slightly pricey. Shut up and take my money.
