We were staying in Hilton Head and found this place on Restaurant.com. It was a nice ride and quite pleasant. It was nice to get away from the tourist traps. I recommend the ride for one of the best crab cakes we ever had. We were waited on by the owner who couldn't do enough for you. The meal was... More

We had gone to Port Royal to have lunch at Dockside only to find out they are not open for lunch. MoonDoggies was recommended to us and we were not disappointed! We had the fish sandwich and it just melted in your mouth. We enjoyed the banana foster cheesecake for dessert. Great place!

We used to come to Moondoggies for special occasions. Our recent experience made us change our minds. Our waitress acted like we were a burden being there (red hair), but another waitress saw we were not being taken care of and started taking care of us (long black hair). She was a pleasant. I guess you need to come on... More

We were not disappointed! Started with the fried pickles, best ever! Also, ordered the "oysters in a nest", excellent! I ordered the flounder special and he ordered... More

Out on the Second Strike The first time we ate here for dinner, a year ago, we were treated sub-par by our server (older male) and the owner. I somehow convinced my partner to return today for lunch and, as a younger couple, we were treated the same way by our server (older lady with red hair) from the beginning.... More

Three of us ate at Moondoggies for dinner last night and we all had a great experience. I had the Linguine Provencal with shrimp, my sister had the NY strip and my brother in law had the blackened Mahi - all were cooked perfectly. We started with delicious crab bisque and "Oysters in a Nest" fried oysters with a horseradish... More

Soft shell crab season - only 2 weeks, but soft shell crabs make for great eating. Have also eaten at Moondoggies at other times - food is excellent, as is the service!!
