Great specials, wonderful pick of sandwiches, and best ever fried pickles. Well worth the visit! And can eat out on the porch with your dogs!

“Fun and different best fried pickles”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

I love to go here for lunch, very cozy and friendly. The menu is varied, and the story of why it is so named will give you a tear, along with the Moondoggie mural. Best Reuben in town, best fried pickles and good prices. Evening is always good for a date night, music sometimes, nice atmosphere.

“Wonderful food in a house!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I bought a coupon on restaurant.com for Moon Doggies. My daughter and her family live in Beaufort, so we are in the area a couple of months out of the year but none of us had eaten at Moon Doggies. We made the mistake and parked in the back since that is where Google maps sent us. My grand daughters could not get over the fact that we were going into somebody's house to have our dinner out. Our service was very good. We ended up having several ladies wait on us throughout the evening, We went with their recommendations for the evening and they were spot on. The crab cakes were delicious. I had the "puppy cut" filet that was so tender, it was amazing. This was the best steak that I have ever had in the south. Since I am a dessert person, I am always looking for good homemade desserts. Moon Doggies did not disappoint. We had key lime pie that rivals what we recently had in Key West. The peanut butter and chocolate pie was rich and smooth. We felt that the prices were reasonable. I am so glad that restaurant.com brought this wonderful restaurant to our attention. We will certainly go back. As we left, my grand daughters began talking again about how odd it was to go into somebody's house for a dinner out!

“Fabulous food, great atomosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant is wonderful. If you like fried pickles, you will love that for an appetizer. Excellent adult beverages, specials that are wonderful, and some nights of the week, live entertainment. Enjoy your dining experience in a small and cozy establishment.

“Full Of Character...Both The Restaurant and The Owner”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Sammi, the owner, is a highlight of this restaurant! If you care about the human interest side of the Moondoggie name, she will be more than glad to share that with you. But beyond that, the fried pickles with the wasabi dipping sauce are incredible...best ever! Crab cakes were wonderful...character of the building is great...service was excellent. Would make this a priority when back in the low country!
