Shrimp corndogs? What the **, right? Right! In summary, they're amazing. Yummy corndogs with a perfectly cooked shrimp center, dipped in some sort of honey mustard with a blueberry swirl. They're tasty little buggers! The country fried steak was also delicious, especially the gravy that it's topped with. Run here as soon as you read this! I heard their Sunday... More

Stopped in with family for celebratory meal after completing the Austin Marathon- Every bit of the experience; from the food, the service, the drinks, the atmosphere-was outstanding! My wife and I still talk about the food and make sure to mention this as a " must stop" restaurant for any friends and family that visit Austin!

I've only been to Moonshine for their Sunday brunch, so I can't comment on their other meals. I have been to several brunches around town and have found that not only the atmosphere, but food is one of the best. We like to visit Moonshine when we have visitors in town, it's something they can't get in other parts of... More

Everyone talks about the great brunch here, and it is really worth all the accolades. My favorite thing on the menu is the bohemian wrap. The veggies are grilled just right, but the goat cheese puts it over the top. It used to be served on bread and you can still request it made that way as I do. It's... More

I stopped here for a late lunch my first day in town. My husband was at a conference, and this spot is close to the convention center. Even though it was hot, I ate on the patio. They had swamp coolers going. Service was great, and food was tasty. I got the Chicken Finger "salad". It was less of a... More

Solid southern comfort food in a nice atmosphere with a friendly knowledge staff. Moonshine offers drink and appetizer specials until 6pm to go along with a menu that offers a variety of southern specialties such as chicken and waffles and grits. The drink menu features a full bar as well as a variety of local Austin beers. The pork chop... More

I stopped into this spot months ago and had a good meal. Looks like a place that is consistent. It's a good, fun place....

From the reviews I knew that it might be crowded, but there were private parties as well when we showed up Friday night and were seated on a narrow porch on bar stools on a railing that looked over the street and into the back wall of the convention center. So pretty bad ambiance for us, bad luck I guess.... More

This is a great little place with homestyle food offerings. I really like the ambiance with the rustic look and the fireplaces. We had a group dinner here for work. Everyone loved it. The only down side is the wait and parking even in the middle of the week. There was no place to wait to even valet si you... More

This was recommended by a local and we were very pleased we took up the recommendation. Started with an Old Fashioned. Had the Pork Chop with Apples and Sweet Potato chips. The chop was cooked to perfection and the chips were perfect. Had one of their special Fall cocktails to finish, Bourbon, Apple, Cinnamon and Brown Sugar, what a great... More
