The fourth unique concept of Good Salt Restaurant Group, The Monroe boasts 8,000 sq feet of dining and entertainment space in Creative Village, Downtown Orlando. Serving nostalgic, childhood favorites in the airy, midcentury space, we hope to offer the best of Orlando's hospitality to you.


Our Front Porch offers a casual, outdoor hangout space complete with our own canned cocktails and small bites.

We seek to capture the spirit of Orlando's rich history in our decor, menu, and community involvement as we share this new restaurant with our guests in the heart of Creative Village.  The Monroe is inspired by Dr. William "Monroe" Wells and his hospitable spirit as a civil rights leader and iconic figure in Orlando's history.  We are proud supporters of the Wells' Built Museum in the historic Parramore neighborhood, which provides an insightful and inspiring look into Orlando's African American heritage and Dr. Wells' legacy.  You can read more about Dr. Wells HERE.

Brooke Fehr, Orlando Magazine

"As I walked through the front door—you can’t miss it, flanked by greenery and topped with a cool, flashy, retro sign—I was immediately struck by the beautiful decor, and how it softened the industrial space, with its high ceilings, wall of windows and exposed ductwork. As with sister Good Salt Group restaurants, Seito Sushi, The Osprey and Reyes Mezcaleria, the space is stunning."


We’re hiring for all front and back of house positions including: servers, bartenders, support staff, baristas, hosts, and line cooks, with two years of comparable experience required.
