I was looking forward to trying out this restaurant. The service was very bad, no recommendations, no information about the specials, no information on my questions about the food. The food was good, but for the high price it should have been exceptional. I will not return to this restaurant. Not a family friendly atmosphere.

My family and I are in town for our brothers graduation from the Marines. We enjoyed Moondoggies for dinner our first night in town. It's a small menu. If you want good steak, shrimp and crab cakes this is your place. A little pricier than I expected at $25-$33 a plate. But it was delicious and the service was friendly.

We had an early dinner there recently. Had a perfectly cooked steak (I am very particular with my steak temperature) reasonably priced bottle of wine and casual but attentive service. The fried dill pickles with horseradish sauce are the best rendition of this southern dish I have eaten. The downside is the restaurant is in a converted house with small... More

My wife and I have been Moondoggies customers since shortly after it opened. We eat there often. We will greatly miss the "red-haired lady" and are very sorry she has left. It is Moondoggies loss and that of their customers.

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your five-star rating and hope you and your wife will continue to enjoy great meals with us for a long time to come. The "red-haired lady" felt it was time for her to move on with other endeavors and we wish her well in doing so! More

My husband has raved about this restaurant for years, but I only got to experience the fabulous food this week for the first time. We started with an order of their famous fried pickles. For those of you that are turned off by that, you really should try these if you are in Port Royal......they were divine! The order somes... More

On vacation with family on Fripp Island. Leaving the kids behind, we were looking for a nice place for a "grown-up" meal. Moondoggies was a great choice. The restaurant is in a charming house, tucked away on a side street in Port Royal. Beer and wine menu was good. Fried pickle appetizer was enough for two and were very tasty.... More

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
