Moonshine was excellent. Food good but a little pricy. Parking is a bit of a challenge. I would suggest valet. We were seated right away.

Brunch is replete with dishes from green child casserole to melt in your mouth biscuits. The service is excellent (bartender, Joe, at night is most welcoming) and atmosphere fun.

obviously we liked it. We went last year and really enjoyed the food. This time was just as good. The turkey sandwich is very good. The sweet potato fries are some of the best I've had. Also ordered was the mini corndogs, very tasty, we really liked the dipping sauce. Chicken Fried Steak was good, nothing special. Overall good meal,... More

Had a great dinner seated in the bar of this busy restaurant. Server was helpful, food was great, and it was a fun place to eat. Super hot and humid that day so didn't sit outside but the patio looked nice for a cooler evening.

The steak was wonderful with the cheddar butter. Popcorn on the tables is a great touch and the apple pit dutch oven dessert is the best dessert I've ever had. Will be coming back next time I am in town.

Loved this restaurant! Charming place with fabulous food. If we had been in town another night would have gone back. One of the best meals I've had while traveling since Far View in Mesa Verde.

My sister and I enjoyed a beautiful Sunday brunch here. I had read other reviews suggesting an early arrival to assure a quick seating. So we arrived about 20 minutes before opening. There was just one other couple ahead of us but by the time they were opened, the line was already fairly long. We enjoyed so much delicious food.... More

Very southern in that most things are fried. We had the chicken and waffles, it was good but nothing unique.

We had drinks and dinner. The service was wonderful and we were never rushed. The food was delicious. Popcorn before dinner added a nice touch.

A mimosa got us started and the chicken & waffles soon followed. Great food in a buzzing environment. We ate outside but inside was equally busy.

Thank Amy M
