Great Food, Great Atmosphere

Try the pork chops or the corn flake chicken salad...both really good, as were the corn muffins. We stopped in at about 6:00 PM on a Sunday night - no wait. But when we walked by in the morning at brunch time, the place was packed.

We went here because of a Trip Advisor recommendation. It was fantastic! The drinks are relatively inexpensive, and they bring you popcorn while you're waiting. There was a bit of a wait, maybe 30 minutes. I had the trout which was amazing! It was decadent, topped with smokey bacon and something sweet. My BF had the hangar steak, which the... More

Restaurant is about a block from the Hilton and there are lines for lunch and dinner. It looked like there were a lot of drinkers. There is patio dining but that would be very hot during the day.Not much variety on the menu.

Came here right after landing in Austin. Good location about a block from my hotel (Hilton Austin). We were seated right away on the outdoor patio. I had a very good margarita and a nice steak salad. I really enjoyed it!

Had the house speciality corn shrimp (like a corn dog, but with, uh, shrimp) and the pimento cheese burger. The bread pudding dessert was so large that three of us shared, with a bit remaining on the plate. Loved the food. The service was great at both the bar while waiting and at the table.

This was my second visit to Moonshine and I loved it as much as my first meal here! Moonshine doesn't take reservations and there is usually a bit of a wait, BUT it is sooooo worth it!!! The Jalapeño hanger steak is amazing!!!! It's not the stereotypical gargantuan-sized hunk of beef, but it doesn't need to be : quality over... More

We ate at Moonshine on a recent visit to Austin and loved it. The food was great, the staff was attentive and the atmosphere was great. If you go try the chicken fired steak......can't beat it!

We stumbled upon Moonshine from the Austin Visitors Center. We were hot and tired and needed a "pick me up." I was worried our trip had landed on wrong foot. We were told the wait would be 25-30 minutes. We headed for the bar for some Bloody Marys and Bloody Marias, they were both worth the wait at the bar.... More
