The food is okay. The atmosphere is generally loud. The service is meh! If you are not in a hurry, your wait staff will be AT you to pay and get out.

Moxie's has a wonderful atmosphere with high quality, modern decor, spacious seating and good privacy. The menu is better than normal roadhouse fare and the staff is experienced, friendly and courteous. We visited Moxie's on Mothers day 2019.
