Wondering experience ! Food, ambiance were outstanding . The service was a short of 5 star , I thought our server could have been a little more attentive for our party of 12. We had to make requests for more coffee and syrup for the delicious waffles . The chicken and jalepeno grits were a outstanding . This was a post wedding family only brunch . My son in law recommended the MM , I agreed and would recommend it now as well . Well done !

Nice Eclectic menu. We both had the avocado toast which came with the house salad. Both were excellent. We also
Shared the fries and they were fresh cut and really good.

Overall, my party and I had a decent experience. The coffee was not as strong as we would have all liked, and the food tasted like it lacked seasoning. It was Easter Sunday so maybe that accounted for some of the lackluster food and coffee. But it did just look like their regular Sunday crowd so I’m not sure where the ball was dropped. I would return in hopes that I would experience a more pleasant visit.

Decent brunch, went at 1:00pm and parking was a nightmare. Probably would go not at peak time. The steak my BF had was awesome, but my omelet was not very good. Mom/pop places are better than theirs! The carafe of mimosas wasn’t very strong and I am a light weight drinker.

Birthday experience. Overall good, seeing that we choose this restaurant for some almost 8 years in a row to celebrate my birthday at. This experience was good, until the very end when the checks came. Typically I would like one check, however friends asked for split checks. Our server charged us for other peoples dinner, completely failed to charge one person, then got us charged yet for the wrong food. We paid it and went on with our evening. Overall, love the place. The server seemed relatively new and may just need additional training opportunities with regards to closing out the dining experience. Thanks Meddlesome Moth for being a Dallas go-to staple restaurant!

I just wish they would turn down the volume of music so that people can talk without having to shout.

Overall great time dining here and enjoyed most of the dishes we tried. Our party mostly dined on shared dishes but a couple of folks ordered the Ribeye special and the Roasted Chicken plates. Shared plates that shined were Crispy Skin Chips, Crispy Pork Belly, and Guacamole. The Pork Belly was unbelievable as it was perfectly seasoned and served on a bed of roasted marshmallow to create a unbelievable sweet and savory dish. Crispy Skin Chips were a surprise favorite although I could feel my arteries hardening as I ate them. Guac was a solid dish. Shared plates that didn't impress were the Beef Marrow Bones, Nashville Hot Devils, and Confit Duck Wings. Beef Marrow was biggest disappointment with nothing really there in the bone to speak of outside of the chopped veggies. Deviled eggs were not bad, just too much mustard for my liking. Duck wings were huge and spicy as hell, but they were ok. Ribeye plate (Special) was nice and well cooked but a little on the expensive side. Roasted chicken was a solid dish with the broccolini. Finished with Bread Pudding and it was a really nice finish. Lot's of beer and drink choices to pair with food. Service was really good and helpful with food and drinks.

We came here with a party of 6 for a birthday brunch. They allowed us to come 20 minutes late because the weather was rainy. We also were VERY socially distant. Enough to make us feel safe-ish. Our waitress was great and attentive. It was great and we will be back soon. Oh the food and drinks were really good too.

If you’re looking for a place that gives you minimal cues that we’re living in a time of social distancing, this is the place for you. The busyness and noise levels feel like restaurant visits in 2019. That might be a good or a bad thing depending on how you feel right now. Beyond that, I was sorry to see how indifferent and minimalist the service was. I had to get up and refill my water glass several times because the server didn’t see it’s emptiness after several visits that were too quick to request a refill. The food was fine, the menu very limited, the beer selection very good. Again if it’s atmosphere over service and food you like, this is the place for you.

First of all they have an amazing beer selection. That’s really why we went there. Decided to try the brunch menu. The sticky buns were fantastic! I wish I had just ordered more of those. The entrées we had were the burger and a mother and child reunion. My husband said the burger was pretty good but he was not crazy about the fries. They were hand cut but we’re not crispy. I replaced the grits with biscuits for my entrée. The biscuits were really good. They are definitely different and maybe they use some cornmeal in them. The jalapeño gravy was a weird green color and had another spice in it that made it have a southwest taste. I would have preferred a regular cream gravy that had a jalapeño flavor instead of whatever that was. The chicken fried chicken on top was pretty tasty but because they use a batter instead of a dry breading, the crispy coating just fell off every time I tried to cut a piece of chicken. The flying saucer (a sister restaurant) has better chicken and jalapeño gravy. We will still return but just for the beer or maybe the sticky buns if we make it during brunch again.
