We are a historic motor court first opened in 1938 and repurposed in 2011 into a Restaurant, Bar, Music Venue and Artisan Enclave. Monterey Court Cafe features American comfort food with a focus on local fare. Our menu includes a host of offerings for any palette. 100% Angus burgers, pulled pork, grilled salmon, vegetarian options and even pot pies. Tuesday through Sunday we feature on our courtyard stage music acts and events both local & national, and sometimes even global. From your seats, patrons enjoy not only a great show, but a gourmet menu of dining delights, craft drinks, brews, and wines. Most seats are under cover but all are shaded with cooling mists in the summer and numerous heaters in the chilly months to keep our audience comfortable. We have seating for 245 at tables with another 50 at the bar and scattered throughout the courtyard. Sunday mornings we offer a special brunch menu with musical accompaniment. ***We will try to accommodate all reservation requests, but can offer no guarantee as to where you will be seated.
It was so great returning to The Monty after several months away during the pandemic. I appreciate the new awnings over the sidewalks, meaning full protection from the elements. It was cool outside but cozy in the courtyard. The food and music were great! Can't wait to go back.
Jill and Erin did a great job getting food and drinks to us in a timely fashion!! Music was good! Food is fantastic! Love your place!
Great evening! Thank you so much!
I just love this place. Always top notch.
We LOVE Monterey Court. Cocktails are just right and the food delicious. The servers are here highly attentive and you will always have a full glass of water.
Wonderful experience. Beautiful surroundings. Covid safe. Excellent music. Would definitely go again
Wonderful dining and musical experience, especially with social distancing.
Always an enjoyable and delicious evening with good music and tasty food and drink @ Monterey Court.
The four of us felt safe, #1. The food, beer and wine, and music all excelled.
I love the court. Great music and food.
Loved the live music (Logtrain), the wonderful heat lamps, and my very helpful waitress!
The food and the service were excellent. I would recommend this venue to all my friends!
First, we felt safe. Thank you!! From the moment I moved here, Monterey Court has been my favorite food & music spot in Tucson.
We loved our visit, had a great table and had excellent service! Thank you for this venue!
Monterey Court is doing it right. It's possible to go out and enjoy music while remaining safe. Fun time there for their 9th anniversay and the Carnivaleros' cd release.
Great food and great music!
Everyone and everything was wonderful
Delightful. Wish more shops had been open till 6 pm. Food and service both wonderful. Really really fun entertainment too. Sooo much talent displayed
The Monty is always a wonderful experience. Great food, and they are handling the requirements for safe service during the pandemic exceptionally well. Love going there!
Great music & great food. We will definitely keep coming back. Only thing I could say is that our poor waitress was the only one there to serve all the tables. She did a great job & was super friendly but drinks took a bit...but that was not her fault.
I love the music and ambiance, however I am Vegan and there are too few options for Vegans on your menu. I will continue to come to MC occasionally, but would be a more frequent customer if the food options were better.
Monterey Court never fails to provide top quality food, delicious! They always have the nicest staff who work hard to make sure you feel welcome! Yummy Drinks to top it off! This venue and Bands help you escape the daily grind and relax.
I love going to live concerts & with the pandemic, appreciate outdoor concerts even more. I hope you invite Kinda Kinks, a wonderful British Invasion tribute band, back there. They performed for the vocalist, Pat Bishop, celebration of life there, several years ago.
The food prices are a bit high - I had a hamburger that was delicious. The wait staff are excellent!
I am grateful to Monterey court for making the effort to be open and adhering to covid precautions the best we can. Thank you.
I brought friends that had never been there. They loved it and we will go again. We wish he shops had been opened so we could have browsed. The sound system was not very good, but we knew he singer and enjoyed anyway
The best as always. Glad you were able to stick it out and be open for a of us fans! Will always come back!!
Great food, great service, great entertainment!
EVERYTHING was superb!!! Kelly helped walking me through to do online reservation(easy), our seats were fantastic... safe, could see Lisa and Dianne full view AND great view of FULLMOON ! My crab cake appetizer was the best ever, thanks to Mia, our server for endorsing ! I’ll be back
Excellent food, service and music! In addition, the weather could not have been more perfect for an outdoor event. Monterey Court is a treasure in Tucson, and we appreciate all that Kelly and Greg do to promote live music.
was happy to see that it is safe to go there. I wore a mask when not eating or drinking and about 50% of others did too. wish everyone had. but still it was great to be there again. it felt "normal" and everyone was trying hard. the food is good enough but it has never been the main attraction. the music was great
Good music venue, good food, good service, what more could a person want?
Excellent Covid-19 precautions and distancing. First time out since March - felt safe
This was our second time to Monterey Court . I took my 15 year old daughter so we could see her guitar teachers perform . We had a great time . I was worried about parking at night but we were able to park right by the entrance . The food was great . Mahi tacos and brownie dessert . We felt safe in regards to covid precautions that were put in place . The atmosphere is very nice . I felt comfortable having my daughter there . We will be back !
Overall, great experience! Wonderful venue and very attentive waitress. The portabella burger i ordered was a bit lack luster, but no complaints otherwise.
Monterey Court is the best! Glad you're open again. Bruce
We all love going to Monetary court our favorite place for fun friends food and music
Great atmosphere and the food was very good. The live music really topped off the evening.
The process was smooth and streamlined and easy to follow keeping it basic and not cluttered was a bonus thank you for the great experience.
Had a wonderful time and absolutely love this venue.
Monterrey Court is a local treasure and we are so grateful that they are able to stay open and provide a musical home for our amazing local artists.
Very fun place with great atmosphere, music, food, drinks, and service. We will be regulars here.
This was the first time for my husband and myself. The whole experience was fantastic. Food, ambiance, service and entertainment was amazing. Made for a perfect night out.
This was my first time out since March, and I was very pleased with how well M. C. was dealing with the Covid-19 situation. There was plenty of space between tables and people seemed to be obeying the regulation to wear masks while not at their table. Our server, Olivia, was excellent, making sure our water glasses were refilled (VITAL in Tucson's dry climate) and generally being a good server. I felt comfortable enough to come back.
Didn’t have food. We had guests from Wisconsin who enjoyed the experience as much as we always do. Thank you!
The birthday girl was very happy. Excellent salmon and music. For me I had fish tacos and they were terrible. Didn’t say anything as not wanted to disappoint the birthday person
Food was not very special at all. We were disappointed. Evening menu and food is always good but the brunch menu was pretty good for variety but the food for both of us (different meals) was tasteless. Sorry. But you did ask!
Always a good time at "The Court".
we love coming here. Thank you for all that you do to make sure your patrons are safe
Great venue, especially on a mild night in October. Band was great- good for listening as well as dancing (no, we didn't dance!).
