We stayed around the corner from this place and asked a few locals on the street where we can have a nice lunch, the said we HAVE to go to Moonshine and we ended up eating here twice. The food was great, drinks were awesome and the outside patio was a nice touch. The hot Austin air worried me, but... More

We saw this restaurant on trip advisor and were interested but it was a couple we met at a winery outside Austin who sold us on this stop. They were right, the moonshine shots and food were fabulous. We had toast points with a gooey delish cheese dip and the dr pepper roasted chicken with sweet potato fries. The server... More

Enjoyed lunch at Moonshine with our college age children. Everyone enjoyed the lunch. Had the corn dog battered shrimp and it was quite unique and good. Service was great and the food was all good. We enjoyed the atmosphere as well. It's a bit more expensive than we expected. Lunch here was our most expensive meal during the week we... More

Yes..we did wait an hour and a half, little to no place to stand at the bar. But we managed to squeeze ourselves into a corner and chit chat, with drinks in hand. Before we knew it.. our buzzer went off for our table. The wait staff were amazing. The bartenders were very attentive and almost apologetic for being so... More

It is easy to see why this place has won so many local awards. It took a little longer than expected to be seated but it was worth the wait. Turns out a bridal party had reserved a large area for a rehearsal dinner tying up many tables. We were seated on the patio and concerned the heat would be... More

This is one of the first restaurants we went to in Austin, TX. We went for brunch on a Sunday morning and it was absolutely delicious! There was a long line when we arrived around noon (apparently there always is a wait, especially for brunch), so be prepared to wait. We ordered fresh mimosas while we were waiting, which helped...

Great vibe on entering. 45 minute wait but so worth it! Plenty of space to eat in and outside. Server Justin really friendly and service was quick. Ribs and steak amazing and dessert looked fab but no room left !

Cool spot in Austin that serves up some eclectic drinks, including some white lightning. Food hits the spot as well, although it can get a little pricey if you're not expecting a higher end establishment.

We went here on Sunday for brunch and should have made a reservation. Everyone in Austin seemed to be here. The brunch was awesome. I think they hit a home run with the menu. It was flavorful and had a great variety to choose from. We never expected the level of quality that was here. Nice location. If you go... More
