Really nice restaurant, we dined in at a very quiet time - early evening. We ate off the specials menu, everything we had was really good, first time having cheeseburger soup - delicious!

We stopped in the Moonshine Grill only to find it packed but the lady found us a table for four in short order and we were pleased with both the service and the food. Each one of us ordered a different meal so we could sample a variety and the seafood was the best. We will go back next visit... More

Tucked away in back of the hotel. Food was really good, I had the meatloaf, a different taste but good. Our waitress was the best I wanted soup and it was out but she managed to make me a cup. Loved it

We have eaten here before and the meal and service was better. The salmon was good but the baked potato was not. It was not fully cooked and cold. Others at the table had the same thing. We brought this to the attention of the waitress. We requested a new one but it was the same only cooler. We had... More

Place looks cute, but dont be fooled. Best part of the meal was the complimentary tablespoon of port cheese and crackers they give you. 2 in our party ordered the grilled meatloaf and I'd be surprised if there was 25% meat in it. It was all filler, bread! Baked potato was cold and hard. Pork loin platter was nothing like... More

We arrived at a very quiet time for this restaurant. Everyone was very pleasant. The waitress took an interest in my 3 year old granddaughter which made the visit very enjoyable for her. Food was excellent. You get your money's worth

We sat inside waiting for over 20 minutes to be seated and no one ever came back out to acknowledge our group of 6. They were not busy so we left after no one came out to seat us. Yes we did tell them we were a group of 6.
