The former Monte Carlo Brew Pub is now known simply as The Pub at Monte Carlo. The layout is very much unchanged from it's brewpub days. There's still copper piping in the open industrial style ceiling. The most notable difference is the lit wall of beer names behind the bar as you enter. (and of course the dozens of taps) TV's are about as prominent as any place on the strip outside the sports books.

The beer menu is long, but is heavier on ambers and imports than stouts and IPAs. Really, that's getting nitpicky. There should be something on the menu of interest to just about anybody.

The food menu is full of just about every thing you'd expect to see on a pub menu. Burgers, sandwiches, wings, fish & chips, flat breads/pizza, pasta and salad are all there. The burgers, meatball sliders, and pizza my group ordered were all delicious.

The service here isn't what it should be, especially at this price point. We made two stops here; one at the bar, and one for lunch. The bar visit, there might have been as many bartenders as patrons, but that didn't mean you were going to be served in a timely manner. Lots of guys standing around. The lunch trip was a little better. Our waitress was friendly, but lets just say efficiency was lacking.

Places like this frustrate me. It's so close to being something great, but it's not. It's too expensive for the level of service they offer.

We stayed at the Monte Carlo for 3 nights and went to The Pub with a group of 10 or so. I'm thinking there's something wrong with their tap system as everything was either very flat or tasted a off. I've been drinking Firestone DBA for years so I know it very well. The one I had here just tasted weird. Also had Sin City amber and some kind of red and they were both flat. Serving craft beer in plastic cups probably doesn't help but there's something wrong with their system.

Beyond the beer its a good place. Good selection and service was solid.

Much better than Tap Sport bar and MGM, Burger Bar and Pub 1842 also at MGM. If you're staying on the south end of the strip this is probably the best. The tap list is much larger than the others mentioned. You may struggle with the lack of stellar brews at any of these, but The Pub, by virtue of the longer list won me over. At least there's more to choose from and I found some decent ones here. Service was great here and the bar tender knew his beer. Yard house at Link has a very long tap list and you might fare better there, but these three are the best on the south end and The Pub is quite decent. Get to Aces and Ales though if you can, its a trip but worth it.

Service was pretty good. Beer selection seemed quite large but it was mostly large selections of a handful of breweries. It was quite pricey but as many have said on here, everything is pricey in Vegas.

The Pub has a niice atmosphere, including a really cool keg setup behind the bar and a beer locker. Great beer selection, including their own Pale Ale brewed locally. Happy Hour prices were pretty good. OK service. Definitely worth a stop if you are at or near the Monte Carlo.

I've been going to the Pub for many years (even back to the days when they brewed their own stuff). They have a wide variety of beers on tap, but they don't do a whole lot of seasonal rotation, so the list tends to stay pretty much the same. Prices are a tad high (its Vegas, so maybe it is to be expected), but 3-6 happy hour on weekdays does make it more reasonable. I prefer Yard House if I'm looking for a multitap place to spend some time

I visited The Pub a few times on my recent trip to Vegas, having stayed at the Monte Carlo. It's definitely the kind of place to go on vacation, and perhaps not a regular spot, based solely on cost -- though on the strip, that's to be expected.

The atmosphere is beer-centric, dark wood and a bit like a chain pub. Not at all bad, it definitely made me want to drink beer. The beer selection is huge, which is great, and there are even some local Nevada craft choices -- maybe not exotic, but it's nice to sample the local flavor. One thing I enjoyed is that they will serve anything that's on draft in a liter -- a truly civilized pour.

Service varied dramatically over the few visits I was there. Mostly the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, but when it gets busy the service can get extremely slow.
