Everything on the menu was so delightfully described we wished there was a “one bite of each” selection. No such luck… We settled on some nice leggy wines by the glass and the marrow served with a roasted garlic flower to start. Next came pork loin with a delicious apple reduction and melt-in-your-mouth skin-on salmon dusted with panko on celeriac purée! Since we were celebrating, chocolate pot o crème (Mexican style with cinnamon) and chocolate raspberry torte! Fun craft cocktails Vibrant (and young) clientele. All in an expansive room with large bar and well landscaped outdoor space! Did I forget to mention three Massive stained glass pieces depicting Rock-n-Roll legends Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and … - rescued from an early Hard Rock location that had closed. A Dallas Must Visit conveniently located in the Design District. Complimentary valet parking so no worries there!

Yesterday (5/22/22), the service was very poor--taking over 15 minutes for a server to greet us and take our drink order. Then it took another 10 minutes to get our drinks, which we promptly drank, and then the empty glasses sat on the table until we finally got some attention from another server when our food finally came. After the wait, our order came out incorrect, the biscuits were hard (stale?), and the eggs looked like they had been thrown on the plate along with the salad with the toppings on the bottom. The experience was embarrassing because I had chosen MM for a business brunch, and my guests were extremely underwhelmed.

Collin was a most knowledgeable waiter. Best part of the experience! Oysters were fresh. Caesar was great. Pimento cheese was just OK as were chicken lollipops, but food is usually an afterthought for us. It's the great tap selections we love and they never disappoint!

The grits were completely flavorless and not cooked all the way. The jalapeño gravy was disappointing. The egg salad sandwich was quite good.The sticky buns were outstanding. The service was average. The ambience was very nice. We won’t be going back

I introduced my now husband to my best friends here almost 8 years ago. This was a very disappointing meal. I ordered the avocado toast for brunch. If I wanted an untoasted slice of whole grain bread, I'd go to the grocery store and pay less. The avocado smash tasted so strange and not in a good way either. The salad that accompanied it was okay but completely clashed with the bad flavor of the avocado toast. My sister had a biscuit with her meal which looked good so I ordered a side of biscuits and gravy once I decided I wouldn't continue to force myself to eat the avocado toast. I'd read reviews that the biscuits and gravy were cold but was not at all concerned because I'm ordering it as a side that was requested after my table had all of their food so it should be perfect and piping hot, right. Wrong! Ice cold. The biscuit and gravy were very good but had clearly been sitting out for 10 minutes so I couldn't enjoy it and didn't finish it. The only thing that I finished was my (thankfully) strong margarita. Do better Meddlesome Moth. We won't be coming back unless it's just to drink.

Fries were greasy. Server was very inattentive. She never asked how our meal was, didn't clear our plates, and we had to pour our bottle of Prosecco ourselves. We were sure that we were going to have a good time at the most, we sure didn’t. Won’t be back.

Pork bellies were way over cooked and hard to eat. Bone marrow, under done. Tuna skewers were over cooked and chewy. Risotto was good and so were the Moth balls. Chicken skins tasted awful. Drinks were great though, service…she came around when we needed drinks but never asked how the food was. We wanted to try the place, but we won’t be going back.

The BLT was good but the bacon was too peppery for me. Granted, it was a Peppery Bacon. So I should have expected that. But other than that it was good

The Dr Pepper BBQ was amazing! We waited a bit for it but had other small plates beforehand so weren’t too hangry. Would definitely go back!

Ordered an 8oz steak but it was less than and was cut into strips …. No steak sauce , shrimp and grits was watery, salmon was ok though.

Unfortunately the grits and eggs were not very tasty. The chicken was good and I highly recommend the sticky buns!!
