Great Fried Pickles

Moondoggies is located in an old home, surrounded by Live Oaks with Spanish Moss. The food is good and they provide a nice variety.

We had daily special which was hamburgers and they were good. This place is hard to find. You just can't drive around looking for it. We used app and did search which is how we found and chose this place. The service was great! I highly recommend.

Friends took us to Moondoggies for the steaks. The meal started with nice salads, but the steaks were the pleasant surprise. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Our server was Jenny and she did an excellent job. This must be a local favorite to know where the restaurant is located. My only regret was to not find one of the puppies lounging... More

Out of towners - ambling through - with no idea where we were or where we were going. Liked the name port Royal and wound up here for lunch. Loved the feel of moondoggies (and the name). Delightful Jenny took excellent care of us. Fried pickles - not bad. Excellent crab cakes - which are not always easy to find.... More

Have not visited for a while and found a new logo, new menu and a very crowded restaurant. Parking was tight with some cars on the street. We were seated with little wait, but patrons behind us had more wait. Our server really hustled but had too many tables to handle effectively. I enjoyed the Reuben Sandwich while my wife... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way through to Beaufort on a recommendation from a friend who has been there many times. The service was warm and friendly. We both ordered sandwiches and they arrived fast. Nice local little place to try. Very close to Sands Beach.

Another little local place tucked back on a side street in Port Royal. I had the crab cakes that came with a Ceasar Salad. Everything was top notch. The service and the food. Highly recommend.

The food is absolutely perfect! Love the atmosphere and staff! If you are ever in this area you MUST come here for at least one dinner! We would have never found this place without trip advisor and I am so glad we did! This is a must return restaurant if we come back to Port Royal!

Wonderful little gem tucked in on 10th street. Julia was an awesome server, kudos to the cook. Chicken wrap, crab cakes, salad were all wonderful. Topped it off with Bailey's cheesecake... Atmosphere was so charming. You really could not go wrong with this choice. Don't miss the pickle chips, this alone is worth the trip!
