This place is over priced, even for Yellowknife. Just check their online menu on their site to see burgers at $15 to $21. Salt can be a big flavour and is applied at times like gravy. Beers are run of the mill pub selection with negligible micros. The locals seem to like this place and on weekends it can be... More

Stopped here for supper after a long trip. I had the seafood Linguine. It was excellent! The wine sauce was full of flavour and the scallops and shrimp were a good size. It came with Ceasar salad and garlic bread. It looks like a small portion but don't be fooled! It is a deep dish and all 3 of us... More

Great pub food. Service has always been good. This place gets really busy on weekends and functions almost like a club

The food was hearty and filling. I had the beef and vegetable soup on day and the minestrone another. I also had the club sandwich on each visit. For 18.00 had a great lunch.

But all and all... More

The Monkey Tree came highly recommend by several people who have spent time in Yellowknife. Kinda like a "cheers" vibe, weird local pub. Burgers where good a beer was cold, server was great. All kinds of cheesy Christmas decorations set up, even a blow up Santa.

Really try to avoid trying something different. Not much of that on offer, but stick with the seemingly safe. Better not to invite surprises. As you should be aware of, pricey. Understandably, given the difficulties in transport of raw ingredients.

Probably the best prime rib I have ever had.! The gravy is fanominal! Been there twice . Although, I must say the service on one occasion after 7pm visit was slow and almost frustrating. Yet, I will go back for more . . . just this time a little earlier.

The food is good. It is a nice bar and has big screens for sports. The staff is friendly and quick. Nice place to hang with friends.
