The cuisine targets middle range American foods. Prices are reasonable. The server we had was super attentive. The food good. The dessert, a kind of pie like a Reese cup, was a home run.

Moondoggies is an out of the way spot in Port Royal that is always good. Fried pickles are great. Shrimp po boy is wonderful with lightly fried shrimp. Staff is always friendly.

Food was okay. Nothing I'd return for. Old house with wood floors. Cute setting, just nothing impressive about food or service. Not really suited to small children.

My wife and I eat there three or four times a month. We have never had a bad meal there. We continue to be amazed at the wonderful service as well as the variety of the specials b If you are in the area for lunch you should not miss Moondoggies.

The last two times I ordered a hamburger they came out raw, not just pink, but red, even though I ordered med well. My friend ordered well done and it was very pink.

Not a far drive from Beaufort, and with lots to do while you are in Port Royal, a stop here at Moon Doggies is a must. The Beef on Weck is the best I've ever eaten, and my husband loves the special of the day or crab cakes. the interior is full of murals and charts on the walls--very comfortable... More
