Me and my husband went to Moondoggies as first timers. We were greeted at the door by a young and chipper female! We had informed her we had tried to come the week prior but it was closed. She informed us that they did new renovations and gave the place a facelift! As I could smell fresh paint I was... More

They have the best filet/crab cake meal I've had in a very long time. Great service. Coconut shrimp is amazing as well. Best and favorite restaurant in the beaufort area. Can't say enough

I understand why everyone loves this place. It has the best steaks in Beaufort hands down! Cool old house and the best fried pickles.

Went with family for burger night. They were out of burgers! Had the blackened flounder instead and it was great! The fried pickles are a favorite. Our server, whose name I can't recall, was funny, attentive and entertaining! Go, have fun, food is good, not expensive.

Moondoggies is our late lunch stop of choice after kayaking with friends down the Beaufort River to Port Royal. Although it's not on the water, it's just a short walk from our put-out point at the Sands. Start off with their fried pickle chips (the best I've ever had) and then some fried oysters and a cold beer. (I'm sure... More

I don't have a review because each time that we tried to go it was closed. It is located in a community and if you are staying there, it would be great to go there and have dinner and drinks and walk home.

Quiet, not much help. Two folks trying to wait on arriving customers. Our greeter basically acted like we weren't welcome. The Thursday burger night now is $11 with a soft drink, not a beer. It's not on their menu, you must ask for it. The burger was good as well as the sweet potato fries. Not quite cooked medium well... More

I love coming to Moondoggies. The Beef on Weck is the best I've ever had. The desserts are superb. The potato salad is a winner. Actually the whole experience is a winner. I never miss a chance to eat here when visiting the area.
