The Old Monk

2847 Henderson Ave. Dallas, TX 75206 | East Dallas & Lakewood | 214-821-1880

Location Description:

Just on the basis of suds alone, this English-style pub chugs up high marks with brews from 10 countries including three varieties of Chimay, the heady Belgian beer brewed by Trappist Monks. But Old Monk has other charms, too, from its dark wood paneling fashioned from confessional booths to its bar tables rendered from old barrels. Plus, it has decent bar fodder, including Belgian-style steamed mussels, cheese boards, frites and a German sausage plate. Go for the head, but stay for the belly. Check out the new seasonal beer.
