My husband and I found Moondoggies while wandering the streets of Port Royal during a weekend getaway. We both grew up on the Atlantic Coast (FL, VA, NC) eating lots of seafood, and we think their crab cakes are the best anywhere! Not much filler and lots of crab, perfectly seasoned. We have been several times, and we always have... More

This was our first visit to Moondoggies, and it was a great lunch! We had Oyster Po'Boys and the Spicy Shrimp Burgers, and both were excellent! The seafood was fresh and well prepared, quite tasty, and we enjoyed the homemade potato salad as a side. Their sweet tea was also perfection, and we love our sweet tea! The only disappointing...

We went to Moondoggies during a family vacation. From what I've heard, this restaurant is usually much better, however, our experience was not great at all. A few family members got oysters, which were bad, but when alerting the waitress, she took the plate, went into the kitchen and very loudly told the chef that we said his oysters were... More

We visit Moon Doggies whenever we visit Fripp Island and are always pleased. We had a family lunch today that everyone enjoyed. The fried pickles are the best. We called ahead to reserve a table for 7 and they were ready for us. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Great food and service. Our only disappointment was the new logo.

I have eaten at Moondoggies several times, and have even given them a five star rating here. We ate there with my wife's family, ten of us, on Friday evening. We expected the place to be busy, but it wasn't at 6 pm. It probably got busier later. Our main problem was our wait person. She seemed to have a... More

Me and my hubby went to a beautifully remodeled Moondoggies for a quiet supper. I was hungry for fish and since the restaurant is located right on the Gulf, I ordered MahiMahi . It was scrumptious ! Our waiter was also outstanding !

This is a cute little place. We went for dinner I think on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Right when you walk in it feels like you are invited into someone's home. We sat with 2 other families. She took our order quick and our food came quick too. Everything was great! Hope to be able to go back one day.
