Been here twice - the first time the beer tender broke the top off a Faro bottle and tried to still serve it to me. The second time I was denied entry because I had my 1 year old son with me at 2pm on a Saturday after some shopping. The employee was extremely rude and acted very unprofessionally. I do not recommend this place solely due to the service issues.

A college type lounge bar without the students. Service can be challenging with so little staff. Great selection if you like Belgian styles. They have a few of their own on tap as well. Prices are good, but no tasting flight. Good place, great for the area.

Really great spot. Awesome atmosphere. Tons of taps and bottles. Decent house brews. No flights - absolute crap for a tap house. A bit of arrogance about that from the server. Free off street parking. Taps a bit pricey - $5.50 to $7.50 per pour.

Staff is horrible. You are always trying to get the attention. One TV not even working. Hire some staff that is friendly.

What a hidden gem. My wife found this place while surfing for beer near our hotel in Sioux Falls. Glad she did. Selection is amazing. Staff is all about the beer. A must stop if driving through South Dakota.

Wish this place would have existed when I lived in South Dakota. Went here on my last visit. I will definitely make a stop here each time I am back in Sioux Falls.

Found Monk’s via RB and thank god for it! On a recent US road trip I stopped on my way east and on my way back, enjoying both of my stays immensely and looking forward to my next visit already! The neighborhood is sort of an industrial/rail area, but I didn’t perceive any issues there. Ambience in the pub is super: the bar is lovely and cozy while there is heaps of seating elsewhere and a large patio. The crowd is very cool and mostly beer aficionados. I sat at the bar both times and thought service was both attentive and informed. On my second visit I chatted with the owner a bit and learned a lot about some very good midwest breweries that were little-known to me. Pricing is about standard for the midwest, which means Monk’s is an excellent value considering their selection. It’s reassuring to see that folks interested in drinking good beer in Sioux Falls can do so at a minimal premium over what they’d be paying for yellow fizzy beer. Handles are well- and lesser-known midwest stalwarts and bottle selection is quite varied. They put on whatever they can get from their distributors. A mandatory stop for ale lovers tripping through the region.

Situated in downtown area near the old railroad yards, inside of an old brick building. Building must have lots of history. Many different selections from around the world.

Great atmosphere, not a bunch of kids, just people enjoying beer and conversation. Music is not overwhelming, and the atmosphere is very nice. Service is tremendous, they know their beer and wine. They have a decent menu of appetizers and pizza, but I’ve never tried the food. The selection is great, menu has beers divided by country, easily the best selection in town. It is almost the same price on most beers if picked up by the bottle at a retailer, good value here. Overall the best place in town to relax and enjoy a few good brews.
