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

We were led here by our UrbanSpoon app after finding out that Franklin's BBQ was sold out for the day. We were so happy with our experience. It was later in the afternoon so we were seated right away. The house kettle chips and dip were delicious as was the popcorn you get instead of bread. Everyone loved their entree... More

We were tired. A bit hungover. Annoyed with the caliber of service we had been receiving from coffee shops to restaurants during our visit to Austin. We ambled over to Moonshine for lunch on a Thursday as it was close to the Convention Center that housed the convention we were attending. We were seated immediately in their patio area and... More

Walked over to this trendy place from my hotel. The hostess was reluctant to seat me at a booth as I was alone, but it was early and there were plenty of tables. The waiter was very unfriendly and got my order wrong, and argued with me about what I ordered. He brought me a plate of chicken and I... More

My boyfriend and I went here and it was our favorite meal in Austin! We ordered the shrimp corn dogs which were delicious and a fun twist on the traditional corn dog. As well as the jalapeño cornbread - LOVED IT! For dinner he had the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and I had the pecan crusted catfish with... More

The popcorn is good the fries are good the staff was good, but the steak is bad. Wow they brought me 2 different steaks and both were so tough and I could not eat them. Also had a mojito and it was so bad I didn't drink it. This I hope was just an off night. Sorry but I won't... More

Pros: About 20 items to choose from for brunch, Meats, Vegetarian, Desserts. Brunch prices are reasonable considering it's downtown ($17.95), trays were quickly refilled with hot food. Valet is available. Front deck open for ppl on waiting lists. I liked that they separated entrees in different areas of the room (i've been to brunches where everything is in one long... More

This place had great food and real charm. Loved the popcorn that they brought to the table that had a bit of a southern "kick" to it. The cornbread was delightful. Had the chicken BBQ sandwich, which was moist and had a wonderful sauce. The waiter was attentive and checked in often. Ate outside on on their "air conditioned" patio.... More

Stopped in here with some friends. Seated immediately, on the patio. Service was great...and our waitress actually knew where moonshine came from. I had the pecan crusted catfish and green beans, and some bluberry infused moonshine...the meal was delicious! This is a must see while in Austin!

Strolled around to the Monnshine Bar & Grill from the Hampton Inn on Sunday for brunch. Already very busy at 10:30 AM so had to wait for 30 minutes to get a table. After that you join the queue for the breakfast items. Your server takes care of items such as coffee and juice. Overall the range of foods were... More
