Welcome to the Monarch...a quietly Irish pub and restaurant
Nestled in the bluffs on the Mississippi
River, The Monarch Public House in Fountain City, Wisconsin,
has been a destination for travelers since 1894.
The historic tavern and restaurant still
features the original hand carved oak back bar, ornate
pressed tin ceilings and 100 year old tables and chairs.
The display of authentic memorabilia and the details of
meticulous restoration enhance its turn-of-the-century
The Monarch’s elegant Old World
look and casual family atmosphere combine to make it a
memorable experience for all our guests. Preservation
Restaurant’s diverse menu makes it an easy choice
for adults and children alike.
Whether enjoying a quiet dinner
in one of our private lofts, gathering with friends in
the main hall, or basking in the view from our elevated
decks overlooking the river, we invite you to step through
the door of history and enjoy “a taste of the past”.
Saturday and Sunday 11am - close
Monday and Friday Noon - close
Wednesday and Thursday 5pm - close 100% smoke free since 2004.
