My family went here to celebrate a birthday and there were no regrets. Even though the restaurant did not accept reservations, we did not have to wait. Our waiter Jonathan was very polite and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the baby back ribs, jalapeno hanger steak and flat iron steak - it was so delicious. My mom who is... More

Went there with a group of friends and all of us appreciated the food. Our table was outside close to the huge fans they have to cool the patio down so it was noisier than we liked and definitely windier, but I guess it is warranted considering the heat. Good place to go.

Title says it all. Three margaritas; all three tasted different (not a good thing). Good food though. Friendly waiters. Three stars overall.

We had a double date here with another couple, and everything was excellent! Warm great appetizer, good drinks, delicious entrees (we all sampled each others, so thumbs up all around) and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend Moonshine! Location is great too, right on the edge of downtown.

Went tonight with friends for dinner. We were seated on the outside patio where Kelly was our waitress. She recommended the corndog shrimp and they were fantastic, with the honey mustard raspberry sauce. She also recommended the shrimp and grits with collards and again she was spot on! The food was excellent and our waitress did a great job. The... More

The food was 5 star and the private room was very cute and cozy. The rib dinner I had was excellent, so much I couldn't finish it all. The side dish of green chili and cheddar grits was outstanding. The deserts were to die for, and for sharing, too much for one person!

The location is great, popcorn was a nice touch, and the staff was very attentive. We had about a 45 minute wait when we got there, but the bar in the back kept us busy. The food was good, but not great. I would go here again, but only if it was convenient for me.

Had a lovely evening meal here with friends. Food suited all ages from teens, twenties and some older people! Place was buzzing but not too long a wait. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Food was great, wines also. We ate outside and sadly were bitten alive by nighttime bugs - not that the venue can help that but perhaps think... More

I had lunch here while attending an event at the convention center. The atmosphere is nice there is also an outdoor patio. I had the BAT, Bacon arugula and tomato sandwich with sweet potato fries. The jalapeno dipping sauce that comes with the fries is delicious too!

We were pleasantly surprised with how good the food and drinks here were. The staff were friendly. We had the Catdaddy Spiced Moonshine for the first time there and it was tasty. The hanger steak was excellent and my ribs were to die for. Loved it and we would definitely go back when we are in town again
