“Inconsistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

We eat here all the time and nothing is ever the same. It will be fabulous one time and then the next time nothing is right. On our recent visit they were hammering the whole time on a Sunday afternoon. The Moon Dog burger is our favorite, if the supplier had delivered the meat that week. Beer is not always cold, but view is the best! Nevertheless, we always go back.

“Don't go there with wrong expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Location of the Moon Dog is excellent. It's right by the water and it offers inside and outside eating. This is not a fancy upscale restaurant. If you're looking for that then you should go somewhere else. The Moon Dog Seaside Eatery is a simple place for people enjoying a superb indoor/outdoor location, great views, good food, and adventurous path to the bathroom and a busy atmosphere. The food is good, servings are large. Waiters are mostly young women, friendly and attentive.
Food prices are little above average with appetizers and drink specials being economically priced considering the large serving sizes. If you like Blue Moon beer, order a pitcher of it to save money. Fried calamari and the shrimp nachos are the best deals on the menu IMO.
Over all the moon dog is a bar and restaurant that's just fun to have dinner and drinks at. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere and we'll keep coming back.

“Dog friendly, hooray!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

The food was good and our well-meaning waiter tried to be accommodating. The service, not the food timing, was slow. The location, near a shrimp boat harbor, had a delightful atmosphere. We even spotted a dolphin.

“A Mixed Bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

We chose Moon Dog because it was recommended as dog friendly (on the patio). The route to the patio with a pet, however, was around the back or side of the building; and, if what was on that path made the basis of your visit, you’d turn right around. In fact, the view from the parking in front and the side were not attractive.

The patio, on the other hand, is behind a semi-open open interior area of the restaurant and it has a nice view of the Fulton harbor.

The food was good enough — basic coastal seafood that was either fairly fresh or well preserved. The fired oysters were better than you can expect in an off-month for oysters. The shrimp were also good.

Our server was a bit green but he tried.

“we enjoyed our visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

after reading many reviews i was a little worried about this place. my husband and son are very simple eaters. we really enjoyed the food! there's nothing fancy here, but everything was homemade. my husband and i ordered the fried shrimp. it wasn't your normal fried shrimp with a heavy batter. it was light and flavorful. my son ordered the peel and eat shrimp, and to my surprise he at it all. i'm not sure why people were so fussy, but we will be back.
