The staff encouraged patrons to bring in food from one of the many local eateries (The Pita Pit next door was a popular choice). It was not unusual to see a well-behaved pet or two enjoying the atmosphere as well.
Smoking was allowed on the outdoor patio; patrons who smoke were generally quite good about staying out there.
Monty's Corner closed in June 2013.

2008-05-19 09:43:03 Freddie is an idiot. I have been frequenting this place for years and have never been hit on by another dude. Maybe Freddie puts out a certain vibe that he is unaware of.
Monty's is a cool, sort of chill respite in the middle of the East Ave din. The crowd is generally a little older and mellower than most of the bars around it. It has an (authentic) English pub feel—those of you who have been into an ordinary neighborhood bar in England will know what I mean. Huge selection of beers. —BadFish
2008-05-19 10:08:32 The jukebox at the Korner is way fun. I like to annoy my friends by blasting some Lionel Richie or paying to play the same Abba song 3 times in a row. Honestly though, they do have a great selection of music in there. Check out what they have on cask as well. —KimBee
2008-05-19 11:34:20 Amazing beer selection and low key atmosphere. A great dive bar to just chill with friends at while enjoying a good brew. They make sure to play all soccer games on the tv's when they can. —MrRochester
2008-06-28 14:22:51 Love this bar —BadFish
2008-08-15 15:24:56 I love this bar too, it has one of the best atmospheres and interior in town. I love the high ceiling and classy design. They always have great beers on tap too. For a long time, they were the only place that served the delicious Framboise Lambic(Belgian Raspberry beer, must be tasted to believe!). They also always play the major soccer, cricket, rugby, etc. matches that come on. —AlexD1234
2008-10-08 10:14:57 I love this bar but after speaking with friends and the management last night, there is a very real an imminent possibility this bar will close very soon. Stop an and patronize the best bar in East End before they close and ask if there is anything you can do to help. —BadFish
2008-11-12 20:27:18 Went here Monday night. Used to go every Monday night after trivia at The Old Toad, but with a wife and kids, those opportunities are few and far between! Still a great beer selection and fantastic prices. I wish they still had pretzels and mustard, but otherwise I love this bar. We had a Scotchtoberfest there a few years ago - made a haggis, cock-a-leekie soup, and some other scotch food, along with some tasty single malts... something else this bar usually excels at. In an area where bars come and go, it's been fantastic having the stability of Monty's for the past several years. —DavidGottfried
2009-04-26 21:29:47 A good alternative to the rest of the east/alexander scene. Quite good beer selection. Mellow and friendly crowd. They have a little outdoor patio area right on the sidewalk, which is cool in the summer/spring. Sometimes, the service is slow. —bjnlbn
2009-11-16 12:06:44 This bar offers little in the way of flash, especially compared to its new neighbor across the street, but it's an an excellent middle ground in the East End. I've referred to it more as "a room you drink in," and I mean that in a positive way. The service has always been average to above average, there's a good selection of beer, and the local d-bags tend to shirk its doors in favor of terrible clubs with overpriced drinks. —MarkNewell
2010-10-21 21:28:49 This is probably the most normal bar in the East Avenue Meat-head Corridor. It's a good place to people watch. —BatGuano
