Food is always #1 but service is also excellent. Bryan was great! The popcorn is always yummy and the home made potato chips are a must!! My mom could not stop raving about the ribs!!!

Stayed in Austin over the weekend and took a walk around the Convention Center. I saw all these people gravitating to what looked like a house. When I got close I could tell it was a restaurant. A really cool one. I thought since it was so crowded it had to be good so the wife, kid and I gave... More

We were a group of 10 business associates and the service and food was excellent. We had to wait around 30 minutes but enjoyed drinks in the lobby. The food selection is quite varied. The BBQ ribs in spicy syrup are the best I've ever had and the meat literally falls of the bone. You cannot leave without trying the... More

I had some kind of fish with a spicy crawfish sauce. It was amazing! I generally sit at the bar when I'm traveling and the bar here is great! Bar staff friendly, popcorn snack absolutely sinful!

No wait and seated inside with a wonderful waiter, James. The popcorn we were given as a free appetizer hit the spot while we ordered. The food came out in just the right amount of time, and all was excellent. We had the cornflake chicken salad which was tender and so tasty, the dr. pepper barbeque chicken which was wonderful...

I've been going to Moonshine for years, usually for their Sunday brunch. I've always recommended it to friends traveling to Austin. While the Sunday brunch has always been popular and crowded, I may have to consider other options for breakfast/brunch when I visit Austin in the future. While the food was just as amazing as it's always been and the... More

The food and cocktails were first rate and the service was very good at the bar and in the restaurant. We really liked the garlic bulb appetizer. We will definitely visit, again.

We randomly selected this restaurant based on their availability and location without knowing anything other than they served comfort food. It was a really nice surprise! We went on a Monday night, and the wait was about 15 minutes (dread to think what it's like on the weekend). We had a cocktail at the bar, it was average but priced... More
