The Monarch Public house


Nestled in the Mississippi River bluffs, The Monarch Public House in Fountain City has been a destination for travelers since 1894, MAKING IT THE STATES OLDEST SERVING ESTABLISHMENT.

The Monarch’s elegant Old World look and casual family atmosphere combine to create a memorable experience for all our guests. Preservation Hall Restaurant’s diverse family recipe menu makes it an easy choice for adults and children alike.

Whether enjoying a quiet dinner in 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”.
