As always, warm and welcoming. The main room was packed. They asked if we minded to sit in the new space next door. No problem. This is an interesting space. If you grew up in a Philly rowhouse, you will recognize the layout, stairs, etc. Server was knowledgeable about beer and wine selections. Very nice dinner with friends night. Wonderful flavors. I was actually quite satisfied, but had to finish the plate because everything tasted so good.

Awesome brunch spot with the girls! The food was fantastic and the mimosas were delicious. Our waiter Brian was amazing. Definitely going back soon.

The service was disappointing and the restaurant wasn’t busy. The bus boy was taking plates off the table before the food was done - we accidentally spilled a water and they didn’t offer to help or provide more napkins. The food wasn’t hot when it came out and the bloody Mary’s weren’t mixed so our first round was literally just tomato juice.

Overall this is a nice neighborhood place with good food and a welcoming friendly staff. I went there because it had such good reviews. The restaurant has two rooms that are not connected. We were in the second room that did not have the bar. It was like dining in an older home converted to restaurant and the server had to go outside to get to the other part. It was only a minor distraction, but I think the other side might felt more open. Despite a small menu, we enjoyed it. It is unpretentious and my turkey pot pie and my cocktail were very good. The server was down to earth and chatted with us about the food and places to go afterwards.

Nice place to get some standard American cuisine. I usually have a great experience however on this occasion younger people were hosting and working the bar, two females and they were less than helpful or pleasant! The manager did make a nice concession so I will be back, because I really like the place. Everyone else is usually wonderful not these two!

Moonshine's a long drive from the suburbs for us, so we don't get there often....& we don't pass up any chance to go again. Taking a friend to the airport was all the reason we needed, so we were at the door when it opened for lunch. Octopus flatbread (today's special) was fantastic, with green & red cherry tomatoes plus arugula & a delicious dressing - and at $10, it's also a great deal. My wife had a huge bowl of mussels, and our friend had the Caesar salad with chicken. Having also split a hummus platter as an appetizer, we left full and happy. So many great local beers helped us reach this state too. With great servers and easy street parking, it's all good!

Food was excellent!
We were in the second dining room. Only one wait staff and the kitchen was far behind. The waitress had to run back and forth to the other side (had to go outside and next door). So, service was really a challenge.
Restaurant is not accessible, at all. steps to enter, full flight of steps to restroom.

Food was mediocre. Dip was not hot. Salad was way over dressed. Seating area extremely cramped. Was sat by the door which had staff going in and out, it was freezing. Our waitress, however, was so attentive and sweet. I'd go back just because of her wonderful service.

A neighborhood bar we would not normally go to. We went here to have the Big Rube's fried chicken and waffle that is served on Wednesdays. It was billed as southern food. I think of that as greens & cornbread but I was willing to have a waffle. Unfortunately, it was being served with cheese grits, not what I wanted. So we had something else. My partner had a turkey sandwich which he enjoyed and thought it was real turkey. Overly done sweet potato fries. I had a flat iron steak with bacon mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak was a little tough, the potatoes tasted unpleasant with the bacon but the asparagus was good. For dessert we shared a pumpkin pudding with whipped cream and crushed ginger snaps. We fought over the last bites.
