I was traveling alone and stopped here while taking a late night walk. The service was outstanding and drinks were great. My shrimp appetizers were good but not great. Nice ambiance and a great place.

We enjoyed the food here so that we ate 2 nights in a row while staying in Houston at the Sam Houston Hotel. All kinds of people eat at Moonshiners. The service was great both nights and the food was very tasty.

The burger, the shredded pork tacos, the fruit cobbler - plus a lightly bitter IPA and a sharp Moscow Mule - made watching College Football Saturday an event, not just a stop along the way. As an example of inspiration, the shredded pork tacos are...More

Only stopped in for a drink before going to the hotel. The staff was nice and took care of us. It was late and there were some messes that needed to be cleaned up. I do understand trying to close out the evening. No complaints.

This was one of the best old fashion cocktails I've had. They make it with lavender moonshine, and is definitely worth trying. They occasionally have happy hour pricing on their cocktails for only 5 bucks!
