Nice family restaurant

We visited with a large group with ages ranging from 2 to 65. Everyone was happy with the meals that were served. The pulled pork was well received. Will return next time we're in the area.

We tried to get into Moon Dog's for a work luncheon and called for reservations. The man on the phone was very rude and seemed very aggravated with our call. He informed us we could not make reservations without visiting the cafe and leaving a deposit explaining he was not going to hold tables for an undetermined number of people... More

We have gone here more than 5 times and it is always average. Good prices, ok food, and ok service. This time the biscuits were slightly cold in the gravy, like still frozen. The service was pretty poor, the girl who was supposed to be our server didn't know their menu, know the point of sale system, bring us our... More

We ate here for the first time, and won't be back for a second. Despite all the bad reviews on Yelp, I decided to give it a shot because the menu looked good, and you've got to take Yelp with a grain of salt. Neither of us liked our food. My loaded hash browns were a big disappointment. The gravy... More

If you love meat - this is your place. (Let me add that I am NOT a meat person - so, its a little jaded.) Hearty helpings of heavy meats, potatoes and starches….followed by big desserts. People all around were happily engaged in their meals. I'm sure I left 5 lbs heavier - and very full for a nap. Great... More

After spending years in Texas, my family and I know BBQ. Well, we know what we like, anyway. And we did not like any of Moon Dog's BBQ. I got the Ultimate platter that came with pulled pork, sausage, brisket, ribs, slaw, and beans. Here's why we didn't like it, BBQ should be served throughout the day as it is... More

We decided to try something new. The meat was delicious and the meal was pretty good. The owner came to our table and visited with us. The food was better than the surroundings.

My wife and I thought we'd try Moon Dog's Cafe, as we just recently moved to this area. A little underwhelmed with the experience. The good: The scone we had was really good. The onion petals were also very tasty. The OK: The Chile Verde omelette was OK. The verde sauce had a nice flavor to it. Pork was tender.... More

I was introduced to Moon Dog's by friends who live locally and i haven't been disappointed. The food is good and the staff are a lot of fun. This is a stopping point for me whenever I'm in Salt Lake from here out.
