Very good food!

The building is very cute, surrounded with cats outside. They also have the best fried pickles around! All time favorite lunch spot.

Moondoggie was a wonderful surprise! We were not even heading there to eat, but decided to try it. Our waitress was very attentive suggesting items to order and bringing wine samples for us to try. We both commented our meals were some of the top we had eaten in Beaufort. Blackened Mahi salad with feta and hush puppy crumbles was... More

Meals were excellent! My sister and I enjoyed a delightful evening dining experience. Our waitress was southern grace and courtesy and immediately made us feel like family! We enjoyed tilapia, an appetizer of artichokes, leeks in a bubbly cheese sauce... AND the famous fried Boars Head pickles with a horse radish sauce that just made you go "YAH Baby!"

Off the beaten path, tucked away very unique environment in beautiful, quaint Port Royal. The service and food are both excellent. We've dined there many times and always top notch

Wow! Found this gem a few weeks ago and I must say, Moondoggie's is on time when it comes to food and service. The shrimp burger surpassed any that I have ever tasted. I opted for the pimento mac and cheese as my side. Delicious! The fried pickles were slap yo' momma good. I could eat some of those right... More

Dill pickle chips best thing on their limited menu, kind of pricey... they were considerate of our young ones though

Best meal we had during our weekend! Must start off with the fried pickles! I had the pan fried flounder with the seasonal casserole. My friend had the pan fried tilapia and pimento mac and cheese. We devoured it all. Little man played the piano while we were there. Fortunately it was fight night so we were able to sit... More

I guess we came on an off day. Multiple menu options were out and the service was slow. The food was good but nothing spectacular. The food didn't warrant the higher prices. The restaurant itself was cute.

We have been here several times. The atmosphere is on the sparse side and service is a tad slow but the 'real deal' Beef on Wek is worth it!
