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.
Wonderful evening! The band, the cocktails, the food, the atmosphere all wonderful.(Could have done without the snotty woman behind me who said F.U . to the mask on the dance floor rule and was so pleased to flaunt that fact.) I can hardly wait to come back!
Great Band! Love Logtrain.
Excellent food , great entertainment , friendly and competent service
Love this place!!
I was pleasantly surprised at the size and overall experience. I will definitely recommend this site to my friends. Love to see Chuck Moses perform here.
The food is good and staff both friendly and helpful.
Very nice evening, will come back
It was excellent
Great evening and venue to bring out-of-town guests. Porch Rockers were awesome!
It was a wonderful evening...... great venue.
They were very busy. Everyone was as attentive as could be, considering they were so busy. And the After 7 band was great. Hope to see them again
What a great space to enjoy great music, as well as good food and drink. Will definitely return!
Entertainment provided by Music group “After 7” was fabulous !!
It is a great venue! Food was good. Service was very good. Thank you for hosting Young Ardyce.
Had mahi mahi tacos. Fish was fine but needed a little more robust condiments. Overall very average. Had coleslaw as side. Very bland, mostly just chopped cabbage.
This was our first time out in the last year and MoCo didn’t disappoint.
So good to be back! We've missed you all so much! Great improvements too, thanks for all your hard work in providing an excellent venue for dining and music!
The music was wonderful! Also the enclosures and heating keeps the temperature comfortable.
We were impressed with the new offerings on the menu. We appreciate that you have continued to provide a safe entertainment environment. Thank you Greg and Kelly.
This was our first visit to the Montery Court. It was quite a pleasant surprise. I will definitely return, especially if the Pete Swan Quartet plays again. This place isn't fancy, but it provides a very unique venue for hearing music. I hope to return.
I had a table of 7. We so enjoyed our evening, our dinner, and The Whose Blues Band. However, we were disappointed that we couldn't see the drummer. For some reason, he was directly behind the lead singer. People love to watch the drums being played! Aside from that, it was a wonderful evening out after a year of Covid keeping us at home. We will be back for another show another day.
Really great music; fabulous burgers; cheap beer; lovely, funky Covid-safe outdoor setting; accommodating service; what more can you ask for?
We listen to the Coolers and had a great experience there!
It was a great time celebrating with friends and family listening to the Coolers.
It was all great. Didn't eat any food. Wish I would have had someone to dance with.
The staff were all efficient and friendly, the food was delicious, the service was great and done with a smile, and the music was satisfying. I would definitely recommend Monterey Court Cafe to friends and anyone seeking high quality dining and entertainment!
Such a unique place, but so cool. Service, food and vibe was great. It’s been a year since I’ve seen live music and they didn’t disappoint. Thank you!
Wonderful heaters to keep warm on a chilly evening. We love the Tucsonics and Monterey Court!
Good time. Santa Pachita was great as usually. The Monterey Court bar and wait staff were working very hard all night to keep up with the demand.
Is aleays good vpñace for music, drinks and food!
So so fun. A new Tucson discovery for us. Food was great beat indoor outdoor setting. Artisan shops interesting. Very cool. Thanks
pulled pork may have been a bit freezer burned? tasted ok but not as fresh as I would have liked. Everything else was wonderful
Great brunch with excellent Sunday morning music.. We will visit again.
We had eggs Benedict . It was not very good.
Great as always at the Monty! A very safe environment and terrific staff. The music was fantastic!
Our favorite venue in tucson
I love this place. I drove down from Payson AZ for 24 hour hiatus. Loved it all and certainly got my money's worth. Wish I could have stayed for Don Armstrong at brunch, but had to beeline it back. Thanks for all the improvements. We saw April Verch and Matt and Bekah in 2017 (or 18). The sound is much improved since then. Kudos! Hope to return soon. Cheers, Roy
Awesome atmosphere, food and entertainment!
We knew the music venue would be grand, but was pleasantly surprised at the quant location and terrific food. Really had a wonderful time! Thank you.
We went to Monterey Court to hear a favorite musician & were surprised by the quality of the food. It was a lovely night out.
