“Charming atmosphere with great food”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

My family went here to celebrate a birthday and there were no regrets. Even though the restaurant did not accept reservations, we did not have to wait. Our waiter Jonathan was very polite and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the baby back ribs, jalapeno hanger steak and flat iron steak - it was so delicious. My mom who is not a big red meat fan, was raving that it was the best steak she had in a very long time. The flavors were spot on and the ribs were very tender as well. Since we were celebrating a birthday, we received the fudge stout brownie complimentary and also ordered the skillet apple pie. It was indeed a treat and very delicious. Great value for portions sizes! I will definitely return to Moonshine.

“Decent food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

Went there with a group of friends and all of us appreciated the food. Our table was outside close to the huge fans they have to cool the patio down so it was noisier than we liked and definitely windier, but I guess it is warranted considering the heat. Good place to go.

“Good food, inconsistent bartender ”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

Title says it all. Three margaritas; all three tasted different (not a good thing). Good food though. Friendly waiters. Three stars overall.

“Great dinner spot!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had a double date here with another couple, and everything was excellent! Warm great appetizer, good drinks, delicious entrees (we all sampled each others, so thumbs up all around) and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend Moonshine! Location is great too, right on the edge of downtown.

“A great dinner !”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Went tonight with friends for dinner. We were seated on the outside patio where Kelly was our waitress. She recommended the corndog shrimp and they were fantastic, with the honey mustard raspberry sauce. She also recommended the shrimp and grits with collards and again she was spot on! The food was excellent and our waitress did a great job. The only negative was several tables that came after us received their entrees before us. Will return whenever we're back in the area!
