Used to love the fried options, particularly the softshell crabs but finding they are coming out with more breading and a bit on the oily side.

Really bad restaurant...don't go here. They spent a lot of money to fix up the place, but the menu and food is very bad. Their "signature" fish is Atlantic Salmon....are you kidding me? Should be a gulf fish, like red snapper.

Food was good, better prices than JD. Night quite atmosphere. Fantastic fries and decent calamari. But they allow people to smoke! Who still smokes?

Went while on weekend trip to coast. Was recommended by fellow hotel goer. It's right on water next to ships and has a great atmosphere with outdoor breezy seating , fun crowd and family friendly. That's the reason to go. I just wish I could say the food was the reason to go but it really wasn't. I ordered crab... More

We had 2 great meals at Moondog on our visit. Sat inside, but on a hot August day we walked through the enclosed outside patio and it was very comfortable. I had blackened fish tacos and then a BBQ sandwich the next day, both were GREAT! Others in my party said the grouper sandwich and hamburgers were outstanding. It's a... More

It means a lot to us that you decided to stop by a second time, Stacy! It sounds like you made great decisions both days. You'll have to come by again next time you're in town to try the grouper sandwich for yourself. Best, Lindsay, Manager More

Very disappointed in this eatery. Food was mediocre, as was the service. My husband got Chicken Fried Steak and the baked potato was cold. I had fish tacos, which had a great flavor, but the tortilla was cold and soggy. The waitress was not attentive and was chatting for extended times with her coworkers. It was a hot evening so...

Ever eat at a place where everyone at the table thinks the waitress provided the best service you've encountered? That. Just. Happened. Felicia at Moondog took excellent care of our party! Attentive, positive, and helpful. On top of that, the chicken fried steak was outstanding - and so were the pinto beans. The steak was tender with tasty breading... not... More

Way overpriced for the quality of the food. Have eaten better seafood at seafood chain restaurants in San Antonio for less than half the price. Fish and shrimp were over fried, oysters were mushy. Just made my first and last trip ther.

We take a lot of pride in what we do over here, and I wish we'd been able to impress you more. I'll be sure to share your feedback on the shrimp and the oysters with the kitchen. It's always great to know where we can improve. Sincerely, The MoonDog Team More

I've lived in Rockport, TX for 3 yrs now. My friend told me of Moondog. The atmosphere is "laid back". One of the reviewers said they would rather go to McDonald's...go!

Can sit indoors or out. Good variety of seafood, which is what you want at the shore. Right at a marina, so can look at some boats docked and in the water. Nice staff when we were there.
