“I love everything about this place,” says Monty, proud owner and captain of The Starboard and its Bar Crew. Starting out as a door guy in 1987 and working his way up through the ranks to become a bartender, his favorite Starboard memory happened 10 years ago, when he bought the place.
“Seeing how happy Chip Hearn was made me feel really great and a little nervous. We were so proud about how well we did in the first year, knowing we’d made the right decision.” Now Monty says his favorite thing is watching people have fun.
Off-season you might catch Monty golfing or cheering on his beloved Redskins while enjoying his favorite drink, a grapefruit crush, and noshing on a pepperoni pizza or some Bethany Blues’ pulled pork and brisket. His favorite movie is Eddie Murphy’s “Trading Places,” and best actor goes to “Harrison Ford – by a landslide.” Monty’s close personal friend and frequent Starboard guest Sandra Bullock gets his top actress spot and he gives “The Jetsons” a nod for favorite cartoon.
Returning to the realm of real people, Monty gives The Starboard’s patrons top billing. “They are the absolute most loyal and generous customers anyone could ever have. They love the staff and treat this place like their second home.”
Monty shares the patrons’ affection for the staff. “The bartenders, DJs and staff are the stars. I’m just the Keeper of The Keys!”

some of our staff members
events, etc…That’s what I like most about bartending; never gets old/dull/auto-pilot
inside at the bar....Can't believe we used to work in that!
or the Egg Sandwich definitely.
of course to see friends and family, travel, go on vacation, you know the obvious reasons....
of course, we have a lot of fun back behind the bar and we work well together
would probably be Timmy Finnegan. He's one of a kind; I started in the kitchen in 1999, he was back there making sure everything was going smoothly, but we had the most laughs, he had a lot of insight in to what went on with the
customers and who they were, what they did, his experiences with them. Funny stuff! Best college summer ever that year...
crowds here, the weather is just right and all the businesses are open. Lots of places to hang out...
outside, like going to the beach, fishing, traveling, trying new restaurants around town, going to the usual places too, and visiting friends & family.
