I have wanted to try Moonshine for a while and finally got the chance. The location is just off downtown, near 6th Street, convention center etc. The atmosphere is great...very quaint. Our server was the best , making good recommendations on her favorites. The only bad thing was the quality of the food. I had the flat iron steak with... More

Last week we had an early dinner here after being on the Ducky Tour. My son had grits (and more), I had a turkey sandwich and sweet potato fries, my husband had a burger as did my daughter-in-law. My grandson enjoyed his food also. We all enjoyed our meals and the beer is fantastic. So glad that we were directed... More

We always have a meal at Moonshine when we visit Austin. The seasonal moonshine is always awesome and all the food is great too. Our very favorite dish so far has been the seared rainbow trout, but we also like the chicken and waffles and green chile macaroni. Tip: if the wait is really long and you have a small... More

This place is amazing. Food, atmosphere and especially the grits. Gotta try the grits. The staff was awsome and we'll God I mention the grits.

We waited in line for a table when a waitress asked if there were only 2 in our party. She graciously sat us at a table (saving us about an hour in wait time), next to two other couples. Despite the interesting arrangement of seating, the food, service and environment was phenomenal. So glad we chose this venue for dinner.... More

We stopped in for an appetizer and dessert, both were really good...warm bacon dip and an apple cobbler. Cool building as well...

Moonshine is laid out well with a very comfortable atmosphere for drinks or a meal. We did not book so where stuck at the bar for 30 great minutes. Nice cold beers with some of the best pop corn I have eaten. Great menu, something for everyone, the portions for me where generous. Our group had most of what was... More

Austin has so many great restaurants - this is one of the best. I was here about 2 years ago and was glad to return while on my trip. Having had a big lunch earlier in the day I downsized my dinner choices - an excellent salad and their chicken tortilla soup which was probably the best chicken tortilla soup... More

I was in town on business and visited Moonshine on a recommendation from a local Austinite. I was not disappointed! Great ambience with many different sitting areas and vibes throughout the property. The food was out of sight and the service was even better. I dream about the corn bread and seared rainbow trout - they were out of this... More
