At MOOR it all starts with fresh food procured from the land and sea. We work with local farmers and fishmongers to find sustainable and seasonal ingredients that simply taste delicious. Whenever possible, we make every effort to source our food responsibly. Our vision is to always think globally while sourcing locally. In essence, we are Mindful Of Our Resources.

There is more to MOOR than what we serve on the table. MOOR is a state of mind. It’s that time at sea when you’ve found your destination and all is right with the world. The boat is anchored and the drinks are in hand. Kick back and unwind aboard our reimagined dockside dining space. With the charm of a captain’s paradise and the class of an upscale yacht club, MOOR is everything you’ve imagined and more. But don’t let the sophistication scare you - we're all here to have a good time.

And always remember… there ’s MOOR to Life.

Food was good but way overpriced. We had small cup of chowder, salad with chicken added and mahi mahi over orzo and 2 waters...total was 75.00. Only 3 other tables seated and still took 25 minutes to get our food.

For our first Mommies’ Summer Weekend getaway, we booked our reservation at The Moor, because we all wanted good seafood. I am happy to report that The Moor far exceeded our expectations! The food, drinks and ambiance were beyond what we had imagined. The service was AMAZING and my friends are already making plans to come back VERY soon!

I ordered a strip steak medium rare and it was served rare- under cooked. Kids had to wait while my food was re-cooked. Husbands food was also returned as it was too fishy. Server was kind but it was very slow.

A special place to dine with outstanding service. Moor is always a great choice for dinner. The food is always fresh and flavorful. Our server, Corayer, Is a delightful and caring woman. She goes out of her way to accommodate our needs and desires. We asked for an item ( charcuterie) that is no longer offered on their menu and she talked to the chef Daniella and the 2 of them came to the table and were able to make it for us. We could not have asked for any better service.

Food and service were very good, however, the price is a bit on the steep side, even for a hotel restaurant. We stayed at the JW Marriott for two nights prior and had dinner at Whisper Creek Farm: The Kitchen, and the food and cocktails were excellent, and they were reasonably priced.

Our first night dining was really good, the server was informative and on top of service....the second time dining, the server was not so good....a helper brought our dinner out to soon (while we were still eating our salad) and place our dinner plates on the outer edge of the table....our waiter was busy with other tables and at times came back to late. If that was the only experience we had we would not come back or recommend, but our first experience was so much better.

The service was good, but the food not so much. The crab soup seemed to have no crab, the accompanying biscuit was the essence of mediocrity. The mashed potatoes were watery and the fish a little overcooked-- if that is how cobia is supposed to taste don't serve it to business travelers.

This was for my husband’s birthday. The host seemed confused on our reservation and seating us and someone else took over; service was slow; I ordered a very overpriced salad with blackened shrimp (three of them) and they were very over cooked and inedible and we’re not cleaned properly. It took our server a long time to come over to check on us and by that time my husband was done and I left hungry. very disappointed and would have expected better.

Nothing too special about MOOR except the very high prices on the menu. Fairly limited seafood selection for a seafood-themed location. Sitting in the "boat" isn't all it would seem -- little in the way of overhead or surrounding decor.

Menu seems to feature frills and not entrées. Crazy high prices: $32 for shrimp and grits? $35 for shrimp carbonara? Food costs for both of those dishes are well below $10 each, max, and probably closer to $5.

As with The Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Palms, the food and service are perfectly acceptable (not exceptional), but the prices simply cannot be justified, despite whatever ambiance is claimed for the location.

Seafood can't be beat. We had the mahi mahi and swordfish which were delicious. Very fresh and cooked perfectly. Great service by our server. We did have a late dinner and it was very quiet at the hotel at the time so it was nice and quiet as well.

The appetizers were very bland and had to ask for salt and pepper. The server was good, but had another table and didn’t get much help from his teammates that were standing around which slowed service down a bit. Entrees were delicious!

The main thing that stood out was the hostess that was overly chomping on her gum and popping bubbles that we could hear from the other end of the boat. It was extremely intrusive! Ruined the dining experience for us. No manager stopped by to check on us either.

The food and the service was just okay. The server was EXTREMELY SLOW, it took 10 minutes to get a beer after ordering it and another 10 before he returned to take my order for appetizers. He forgot to bring the beer and appetizers so we had to remind him. We made sure once we had his attention we ordered everything at one time! My dining parter loved the she crab soup and I enjoyed the whitefish salad. I ordered the fish of the day it wasn’t memorable. The best thing was eating on the boat of which was more than half empty when I asked to be seated in that section. The host was trying to seat us at very small first table at the entrance which was highly trafficked especially by unattended excited children at 9pm! However I was told ‘that is for people who have reservations ‘. Umm excuse me didn’t you just check me in with my reservation? Oh yeah follow me. Huh??!!!! A mess. This restaurant could stand to step up their standard customer service skills!!

Stayed at the Gaylord for daughter’s cheer competition. We wanted a nice seafood dinner so decided on Moor. Ordered the crab soup which was basically just heavy cream and cheese and not overly flavorful. Fish dip was really good...very fresh and probably the highlight of the dinner. The reason I gave a low value was because of the drinks. My little margarita was $17! We’re in Kissimmee, not NYC. Ridiculous.

Although it was cool for our kiddos to eat on the 'pirate ship', the food and drinks were awful and the service was just OK. It was super expensive, and the best meal on our table was our daughters hot dog. :(
