The former Monte Carlo Brew Pub is now known simply as The Pub at Monte Carlo. The layout is very much unchanged from it's brewpub days. There's still copper piping in the open industrial style ceiling. The most notable difference is the lit wall of beer names behind the bar as you enter. (and of course the dozens of taps) TV's are about as prominent as any place on the strip outside the sports books.
The beer menu is long, but is heavier on ambers and imports than stouts and IPAs. Really, that's getting nitpicky. There should be something on the menu of interest to just about anybody.
The food menu is full of just about every thing you'd expect to see on a pub menu. Burgers, sandwiches, wings, fish & chips, flat breads/pizza, pasta and salad are all there. The burgers, meatball sliders, and pizza my group ordered were all delicious.
The service here isn't what it should be, especially at this price point. We made two stops here; one at the bar, and one for lunch. The bar visit, there might have been as many bartenders as patrons, but that didn't mean you were going to be served in a timely manner. Lots of guys standing around. The lunch trip was a little better. Our waitress was friendly, but lets just say efficiency was lacking.
Places like this frustrate me. It's so close to being something great, but it's not. It's too expensive for the level of service they offer.

For the Strip, this place has an excellent selection of craft beer. I had a Sculpin from Ballast Point as well as Jaipur from Thornbridge. I frankly wished I had found this place a little earlier in my trip. The Scuplin as $8 which, again for the Strip, wasn't unreasonable. We did not care for the food, however. My flatbread pizza was undercooked as was the shepherd's pie my husband ordered. I would go back, but only for the beer.

I love the selection. The drifter pale is excellent. Service is horrible. Does not matter if you tip a lot or not. I have been coming to the pub for over 10 years: nothing you do changes the service.
Beer is very expensive and food very lacking. But I come for the beer. Could be great place.

I went here after a suggestion of the bartender at Pour 24 in the NY NY casino.
The bartender said they apparently had 180 taps. Pretty sweet. The tap list had a good amount of macro junk, but they did have a nice book of tap and bottles available. I was also informed about the reserve list as well. There are some nice bottles like Firestone Walker 15 and Sucaba, but at 32 for Sucaba and 60 for 15; I wasnt about to throw down for those.
The tap and bottle list was laid out nicely across styes for Amber, IPA, Belgian, Pale Ale and the like. Most Belgian drafts were not even close to being considered at 15 for a draft pour; but the US Belgians and other moderate gravity pours for the style were ok at about 7-8 bucks a pint. I had some Ommegang Abbey, Firestone DBA, and New Belgium Ranger. All were of good quality and no obvious high age. Turnover rate should be pretty good considering the location and popularity of the casino.
As far as atmosphere it was pretty good. No obscene loud music with the Olympics playing on the TV. Pretty pleasant for a Sunday night.
Overall I would say that this was pretty worthy bar for Vegas. Thy had a lot of good selections on draft and I had enjoyed myself. A very worthy stop for sure in you are in the Monte Carlo casino.

A - A very standard pub feel... Very long bar with lots and lots of taps displayed... Lots of wood throughout...
Q - Definitely a quality establishment... A nice place to stop while in Las Vegas...
Ser - Average at best... Stopped twice on a recent trip sitting once at the bar (where the service was above average) and once at a table during a slow lunch hour (and the serve was average at best)...
Sel - 120 brews on tap and another good number in bottles... Can't much argue with that, though there wasn't anything that really wowed be on the beer list either... Also some sample options and beer float options...
F - Flat bread pizza (Organic Meatball) and onion rings were money... Best meal we had on our recent trip to Vegas (including several stops at quality restaurants)... Very well done...
V - As is the case with most places in Vegas this establishment is a tad bit pricey overall, but average when compared to similar establishments on the strip...

Thanks to BA'ers for pointing this place out.
A - Plenty of sports on the flatscreens, obvious cool craft beer vibe with all the taps. I checked it out on a Sunday night and it was kinda dead. Overall not bad, and you can have a conversation and not yell over music.
Q - Server seemed knowledgeable. Pours were all perfect. In fact the Moose Drool I had on tap had a phenomenal head. It is a restaurant first, but one that does a solid job with beer.
S - Server was attentive, and even followed up when the bartender got backed up filling pints.
Sel - I loved it. Tons of stuff I can't get in NY. The hard part was making up my mind. Menu was organized (something many places screw up). I could find my gems easily, and all were there to try.
F - Decent. Quality food but it is a hybrid of upscale bar food/simple cuisine. I was full and like the sliders I ordered. My wife was equally happy.
V - Even me who lives in the pricey New York City area found it a bit crazy. I didn't mind because I got my fix of great craft, but the bill was heavy (2 burger plates, 3 beers, 1 soft drink = $60) Just be prepared.
I'd go here again, even just for the novelty of trying stuff that is west coast only. Its Vegas; if the bartender doesn't get my cash the dealer will.
