Hard lemonade and cornflake fried chicken

All your southern favorites are here, in an historic building just off East 4th st near the visitors center. Their hard lemonade was amazing, I wish we could have bought it by the pitcher! Chicken and waffles came with a creamy chipotle bacon dressing, with just a hint of sweetness. Must try the... read more

Came here while on business following some reviews and got the shrimp and grits. Food was good but portion for the price was disappointing. Great atmospher but probably will not be back.

I visited the Moonshine for some drinks and an app and this certainly hit the spot. We had some great home made cocktails that were crisp and refreshing. The bread sticks appetizer we had was really great, I was actually shocked how delicious it was. We hung out on the front patio and people watched as we enjoyed our drinks.... More

Great food, and service was pretty darned good while they were full and over worked on a busy week night from the convention goers (myself included) spilling in. Some of the best beef I've had has been in TX, and Moonshine definitely delivers. Though I'm not usually looking to "make friends" when I'm on a business trip but this great... More

Don't let the looks fool you. It is nicer on the inside than it looks from the outside. We were a large party and had to wait an hour for a table on a Tuesday night. We waited at the bar and enjoyed the strawberry moonshine and appetizers. For dinner I really enjoyed the trout and the macaroni, which had... More

Overall, The restaurant is pretty neat and great place to eat, drink, etc. Hostess was very nice, said the wait was about 45 minutes (hour max). Girlfriend and I got drinks from the back bar (spiked lemonade and their Blind Mule- both great, recommend the Strawberry spiked lemonade too) and went to the front patio to wait. Once we got...

Arrived at 6:30 on a Friday eve and valet parked, a bargan at $8 as street parking was $12. We were given a 45 minute wait time for patio seating. The place was quite full both inside and out. We had a nice place to sit in the patio bar and wait for our table. We were promptly seated after... More

Went to Moonshine for our anniversary. The food was great as expected. My wife had the flank steak and was prepared to her liking. I had the half chicken, and it was great. The red beans and rice was flavorful as well. We like the local vibe and atmosphere. We waited a few minutes for a table, which is quicker... More

Always stop in when visiting Austin. Great food and service. Easy walk from most downtown hotels. Valet parking available. Dine inside or on two covered patios. Good drinks to include their own Moonshine!

Located a few blocks from 6th street, this restaurant served great food and had great service. Situated in an old house, there are multiple room and an outdoor porch in which to eat. There are two bars that have an old wood bars to sit at. I ate at the bar and the service from the bartender was excellent. She... More
