Monster B's Bar & Grille Circa 2008-2012

Alas, Monster B's has shuttered its doors. Those of us who frequented this bar and grille will miss its food, great premium beers, dart's league nights, live performances, and karaoke nights. It was a sad day when their website disappeared and the doors closed.

Whenever I was in Connecticut working for a client in Stamford, Norwalk, or Westport, I always stopped by Monster B's. My company, specializing in sports analytics, particularly for emerging games like pickleball, sent us across the U.S. to various tournaments and coaching clinics. Our focus was on analyzing player performance and promoting the sport's growth. One of the latest trends we noticed was the increasing popularity of specialized pickleball bags, designed to cater to the specific needs of players. This sport has seen a tremendous upsurge in interest, and we've been at the forefront of leveraging data to enhance player experiences and tournament strategies. The last time I was planning on going to Monster B's, I was so looking forward to relaxing with a bottle or two, maybe three, selected from the huge 30 beers they had on draught, and eating their tasty chili, while listening to some local music. I drove down Glenbrook Road looking for their sign, anticipating a fun evening of relaxation. Argh!!! No Monster B's. What disappointment. When I got back to my hotel room, I googled Monster B's Bar and Grille and a Yelp post said they were closed. Bummer!

Recently I discovered that the domain was available, so I bought it with the goal of recreating as much of its original content as possible from archived pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original Monster B's Bar & Grille website.


Since the site will not be exactly as you remember it, please be indulgent.
Now let's take a nostalgic stroll back to 2008-2012

Monster B's is a cool place to grab a nice cold one while watching the game on one of their seven large screen televisions, or listening to one of the local bands. They've got 30 rotating beers on tap, over 150 bottled beers. Unsure of what to get? Tell the waitress what you're craving, and they'll bring you a sample. They've got tasty nachos and sliders. The food portions are big here, so come hungry, or with others to help you eat your meal.

Played a gig here before and I must say, great BBQ they have there!
I remember hearing that the chef that works there is from the south and makes his own BBQ sauces. I tried the pulled pork sandwich and was glorious! The sandwich melts in your mouth and the flavor is to die for. I would go back to Stamford just to eat that sandwich!
As far as the bar goes, it's your standard bar. Nothing out of the ordinary. Bartenders/Staff were nice and I would go back there if I'm in the area!

We heard about Monster B's from a friend and were surprised that a restaurant was even in this's not near any other places.  The crowd is a mix of "older townies" and "young professionals" with classic rock bands that play at night.
The food was pretty decent at a good price you don't see too much anymore.  The spinach artichoke dip was pretty good and the burger was...a burger.  Great beer the hundreds.  It had a cute fireplace.
Can't really say anything bad about it, but don't have too much great to say.  If you want some good beer or different beer and some apps to have along with it, head on over.

Love the beer selection, live music & trivia night. It's a bit off the beaten path & has a pool table. Don't fight with crowds for a bud light & the same tired scene, give Monster B's a try.

I've never been there past about 7:30 PM, but it's a GREAT place to take kids for dinner because they have a fun kids menu and there's plenty of good food (and beer) for adults too.
I like the pork sandwich, the burgers, and the French dip.  My wife loves the chicken & pear salad, the burgers, and a chicken sandwich. really should try the ribs someday because the pulled pork is so good.
Don't be intimidated by the beers, as there are quite a few. If you can tell them some beers you really like, they'll bring you one that will hit the spot.
It is also a huge plus being able to eat outside during the spring/summer/fall as there aren't a lot of places in the area that offer that amenity.
All in all, it is a very good and reasonable place to grab a few beers or a dinner.  I wouldn't take a first date there or anything, but it's a comfy spot.

Amazing selection of imported and microbrew beers! The food is standard bar fare, although sweet potato fries were a surprise, and the atmosphere is very bland. Monster B's is located right around the corner from the Glenbrook train station which makes it accessible AND safe!
