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.

Enjoyed a last minute dinner out with a friend. She is highly allergic to seafood and after making our server aware of this allergy she chose a beautiful salad topped with grilled steak and a balsamic dressing. I was a traditionalist opting for a grilled ribeye, medium rare, with a Caesar salad and baked potato. We both enjoyed our meals... More

This restaurant is a bit confusing to find but fear not, you will find it and you will enjoy it. It is a bit odd looking also, outside, and if I didn’t read great reviews about it I might have passed by looking for something else. All that being said, it was a fun lunch. Our delightful waitress encouraged us... More

OK, so you look it up and it has great reviews, so you punch in the address on your GPS and it takes you to a small neighborhood, you crawl along and there it is, with a sign that tells you parking is around the back - not on 9th street, but on 10th! You drive around and are pleased... More

We had read about this restaurant several months ago in an article in the local Beaufort paper and have been wanting to try it. With guests in from out of town, we thought this would be an adventure for all of us. The atmosphere is super casual but don't let that scare you off--the food is wonderful and very creative....

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
