Before I get started, the person that just gave this place a two star rating because they didn't like the performer needs to review performers on performers pages not on the venue pages in my opinion. I love this place and mainly because it's a...More

Many thanks for highlighting Moonlight's efforts to control the parts of a music experience that we can---- sometimes at a restaurant, even though the silverware's clean and the wait staff is attentive, the entree might be undercooked or the soup's too thin--- the customer comes...More

That can happen--- and there are times when we admit to being less than pleased with a particular performer's efforts--- but happily, not many. Best we can do is "set the table"--- our quality control kinda ends when the show starts, at that point it's...More

If you enjoy intimate music venues...this is the place to go. We found this place on TripAdvisor and we were so glad we did. The cost is $15 pp for an evening of great music. Bring your own snack and drinks which makes this a...More

Great venue for music lovers. Lots of variety in a music room for serious music enthusiasts. Bring your food and your choice of beverage and sit down and let the acts that Keith Harrelson presents wow you. Always top notch talent.More
