We were recommended this restaurant and were excited to go. The wait was 30-45 minutes which I believe is the norm in tourist season. (Could use some more benches outside as a result). Lots of atmosphere in the restaurant. Waiter was good. Food was just okay. The reason I'm giving it a three (worst dining experience during seven day stay)... More

Went here for the first time, even though I am in Conway every summer. The wait was about 40-45 minutes, but on a Saturday night in the summer, most places in North Conway are all about that time frame. The wait staff was great, and the food quality was outstanding. The waitor was kind enough to get me a recipe... More

Ate here sunday for the second time and probably won't go back. Server was not very efficient at all and very loud as well. We were deaf but perhaps she was. Place is usually busy when going by but Sunday it didn't seem to bad. First brisket was dry and tough with no smoke flavor at all. Sauce was just... More

The beer and food were very good, but the atmosphere in the bar area and the staff were fantastic. Great Job!

We were told the wait was one hour and fifteen minutes. We only waited fifty and enjoyed sitting on the stone wall watching children play in the grass. The menu had a lot of great choices, but our waitress was too busy with large parties to pay much attention to our party of two. The food came extremely quickly which... More

Stayed in N. Conway area for a week in July. Went to Moat Mountain twice while there. First visit was early on a Saturday and I had the ribs. They were great. Husband had hamburger sliders and fries- fries were the best I've ever had. Im not really a fry eater, so that is saying something. Didn't love the seating,... More

I chose the half rack of ribs and was pleasantly suprised not used to great BBQ in the north but this was super tasty. A bit too mich sauce for me (I suggest getting it on the... More

We had been to Moat Mountain several times and always enjoyed the food and sampling of micro brewed beers, making the 40-60 minutes wait times somewhat tolerable, however, this past trip in July was an absolutely horrible experience. Traveling with my husband and adult children we totaled a party of 6, all over the age of 25, yet they sat... More

The boyfriend and I went on a skiing getaway for Valentine's day and after much thought decided to try out Moat for dinner. Originally planned on the Red Parka Pub, but after checking out the Yelp reviews - we figured MOAT was the better of the two. We definitely weren't let down! Nachos were thee very best I've EVER head... More

The BBQ is good here and the beer is tasty. Get the 6 sampler to try all their in house brands. I recommend the crab cake sliders but note that they are spicy, and the fries are very spicy too!
