Beautiful restaurant built into a large old house. The Fried Pickles appetizer was delicious - thinly sliced and light batter. We destroyed them quickly. Our sandwiches were both good - Roast Beef Weck and Reuben, both piled high with shaved meats. My only complaint was the size of the au jus - the container needs to be bigger beacuse the... More

I live in Port Royal and Moondoggies is my go-to place. The mahi salad is wonderful as is the shrimp and grits. My husband loves their steaks and burgers. Friendly service. Quaint atmosphere. A hidden gem.

We went to Moondoggies with high hopes, having not been there for quite some time. The service was so lukewarm I thought the waitress was bored and in a hurry to have us leave so she could go home. She rushed us to order, but never once asked if we liked our drinks or food although she did ask if... More

I love the Roast Beef Weck Sandwich on home made roll. It is shaved roast beef with horseradish sauce on the side and au jus on the side. The potato salad is amazing. It's worth a trip here for lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed.

Went for burger night and of course started out with the wonderful fried pickles. We always put a couple on our burgers. Thank you Moondoggies! Wonderful as usual.

I hate doing negative reviews so will keep this factual. Went here on their Burger night and perhaps they do beef dishes better but we were only after seafood and found a couple passable things and the rest not very good. The fried pickle chips must be an acquired taste - they were very salty and my guest & I... More

Let's start with the fact that the very first statement in your review can be construed as extremely disingenuous. There is every indication that you, indeed, do NOT "hate doing negative reviews" based on the purely negative comments in this review. Secondly, there is nothing "factual" about your OPINION, which is EXACTLY what a "REVIEW" is: your opinion!! We are... More
