This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. As a vegetarian, they serve a nice variety of meat-free dishes, all delicious! The staff are all fantastic and the place is charming. It's the best!

Would certainly return for more. Enjoyed every bit of it. The dishes also have a hint of Indian spices and a wealth of fulfilling satisfaction. Thanks Mooney's!!

Mooney's is one of my go-to lunch places in Winston-Salem. The staff is friendly and attentive and the food is outstanding. Mooney is usually at the counter ready to give advice on the menu and is proud of the hand-made, locally sourced (including local beef, etc.) and the food is ccoked fresh to order.

I had received glowing reviews from 2 couples so we decided to dine at Mooney's before heading to the Summer on Liberty concert with another couple. The restaurant was empty at 6 p.m. on a Saturday night, but we noticed up the street that King's Crab Shack and the tai restaurant were booming with customers. Our waitress (who had gorgeous...

Had dinner here with my daughter on a Saturday evening. It was a bit later so it wasn't crowded at all. The service was very friendly and prompt. The menu was good with plenty of choices. They were out of the tabouli, which was what my daughter wanted. Apparently a big crowd ordered all they had earlier in the day.... More

The food is amazing. I loved the kafta and the falafel. Good service. Very fast. The variety of local beers is good and for 4 dollars. The ingredients as local and they have vegetarian options.

This is my favorite place to dine in Winston. I love the friendly atmosphere and the traditional Lebanese food is to die for. The falafel, the hummus, the tawook - it's all fantastic. Recommended without reservation!!!

I love Mediterranean cuisine, and had high expectations. I am a bit of a food snob, so maybe my opinion is not the best, but I found the taste to be average. As well, I wish that there was ethnic music playing.
