Updated Safety Standards for Guests & Our Staff

At Monk's Bar & Grill we are doing our very best to provide the highest quality service standards while being cognizant of the last year of craziness.  We are moving forward with guidelines and recommendations from the various counties our restaurants are located in and the CDC.

Thankfully, we can announce some service updates below:

  • Will employees be wearing masks?  If you see a Monk's employee without a mask on, please know we have required proof of vaccination (post two-weeks second shot) and have a record of it for those employees.  Some staff have chosen to keep wearing face masks based on their comfort levels.

  • Are you at full capacity for seating?  Not quite yet.  Majority of our locations are still practicing social distancing between groups for safety purposes, so our restaurant's seating capacity has not returned to 100%.  

  • Are masks required?  If you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to wear a mask in our restaurant. If you are not fully vaccinated yet, we do request that you remain masked when entering our restaurant, not actively eating/drinking or moving around the restaurant.  Due to the Delta Variant we strongly encourage mask wearing at any of our Monk's Bar & Grill locations. 
  • Do you have outdoor dining available?  Yes, weather permitting and based on the amount of staff we currently have any given day, Monk's locations with patios/outdoor dining areas will be available!

Many of our Monk's Bar & Grill locations are short on staff, so you may experience longer wait times and lengthier visits while dining in with us - please know we appreciate your kindness, understanding and patience while our management and staff do their very best to provide high-quality service to you.  Thank you so much!

**UPDATE 8-19-2021:  Dane County announced a mask mandate beginning today, August 19, which means that all of our staff and all of our guests will be required to wear a mask when entering and moving around our restaurants.  This mandate includes locations in Middleton, Sun Prairie, Verona and our Plover location.  We thank you for doing your part and supporting us while we follow Public Health requirements in our varying counties. 

The health of our staff, management and customers is our number one priority no matter what.

All of our staff and management have continued to wear protective gear for safety purposes over the last year while providing dine-in service, properly sanitizing their hands after every table check - food handle or delivery (all the time); washing down tables and booths after every visit;  practicing socially-distanced seating methods throughout our bar and dining areas (inside and outside); and contactless billing wherever possible for guests. 

We are so thankful for your cooperation and support as we continually navigate through necessary pivots and do what is best for our staff and customers for the past year!

We continue to care about the health & safety of our guests and staff. Here's what we're doing:

Staff not wearing masks have been required to show proof of vaccination (post two-weeks second vaccination).  Some staff may still choose to continue wear face masks based on their comfort level even if fully vaccinated and we support them.

All chairs/tables will be wiped down before we open for the day, after guests leave and at the end of every night.  We will continue to wipe down door handles, surfaces and commonly used areas throughout the day. Sanitizer stations can be found throughout our restaurant for customers and staff.

To do our part, we have followed local, state and federal guidelines/suggestions and are continuing to seat tables at least 6 feet apart from one another wherever possible.  

Our staff and management will be following additional health and sanitation procedures set up throughout our restaurant, we thank you for your patience and understanding while service may take a little longer than in the past. Our priority is health and safety.

If you have questions or need further detail about what we are doing in our restaurants to keep our guests and employees safe, we encourage you to give your favorite Monk's location a call.  We are happy to answer questions!
