My Wife and I arrived with HIGH expectations. We had a drink during their Happy Hour. It was nothing special. We were seated promptly.

Had drinks and dessert after dinner for my mom's birthday. It was a karaoke event down stairs. Service was good, desserts were good. Atmosphere and clientele is a little on the old side.

Haven't been to Moonstruck in a long time and won't wait so long again. Dinner was awesome, server was excellent. It was a great way to avoid the Halloween goblins and enjoy a relaxing evening with friends while feasting on culinary delights.
