A lively bar and restaurant filled with local Kentucky flavor, The Monkey Wrench serves up a menu ranging from the best burgers in town to more unique items, including fried green tomatoes and grilled pb&j sandwiches. And then theres the comprehensive list of adult beverages, delivered by an enthusiastic staff. The cant-miss giant mural of Kentucky-born American journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson is a testament to The Monkey Wrenchs passion for Louisville. Wednesday evening bluegrass and an upstairs deck to take in a relaxing drink at sunset are in and of themselves reason enough to visit this popular Louisville hot spot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Food was incredible. Will be back, but I brought my kids and the lack of a high chair complicated things. Again great food and environment, just not for kids. Feb 17, 2014

Rated 2 out of 5 by Went on line to look at their menu. Liked what we saw. When we got to the restaurant, the menu wasnot what was on line. We were a little disappointed. Feb 15, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by the coupon did not state that alcohol was not included in the purchase amount. The bartender was OK about this but the owner, somewhat indignantly, told us something to the effect that he is running a bar not a restaurant. Feb 15, 2013

Rated 3 out of 5 by I will remain tactful and say our first visit the Monkey Wrench was our last! Jul 26, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by The dirty dishes and trash remained on tables for far too long. We had to walk to the bar to place our food orders with the bartender...pretty inconvenient. Food was good, cool atmosphere, and you can't beat live music. Jul 12, 2012
