We took our food to go because it got so cold waiting 1 1/2 hours for it food to come out. Otherwise, a decent place

The food and the ambiance itself wasn’t bad however it took over an hour to get our food which was just a chicken sandwich and a grilled cheese. The restaurant was not busy enough to justify the wait and the server was apathetic to our wait or patronage. I would never go bad because although the food was decent it’s not worth the wait or time. Additionally their prices are high for what you get.

We had a super sweet server and the food was awesome! Just friends having lunch - with a hyper little dog in a stroller, haha! And the server was so accommodating and attentive. We will be back!

Great neighborhood restaurant. Food was terrific, and the wait staff personable and friendly. Definitely go on a Tuesday night and stay for trivia! We went to get a quick bite to eat after work and ended up closing the place!

We arrived with a confirmed reservation for 4 outside to then be told they couldn’t accommodate us outside. What is the purpose of making a reservation and confirming it if they don’t honor it when you arrive? Drinks were good, food was good.

The pandemic curtailed our date nights and we were both excited and nervous about eating at a restaurant again. Staff seated us immediately for our 5:45pm reservation, took our order and brought our drinks quickly. The appetizers took a bit to get to us, but it was well worth the wait. We split wings & shared a French Onion Soup. Both appetizers were perfect. Our entrees arrived exactly how we ordered them and were as delicious as the apps. Our server was attentive and made our dining experience even more enjoyable. We highly recommend Moonshine.

Outside dinning ambiance was lovely. They even had a TV set up outside so my BF could watch the game. I got crab cake sliders and tots that were delicious. My BF got Asiago chicken sandwich w/ a salad. It was the perfect amount of food for us. The server was awesome! I’d totally recommend this place.

I walked up and waited for the hostess to check-in, two women walk up after me. A gentleman comes out of the bar area and immediately ask the women if they had a reservation, their response was no. He then ask me and I advised yes and provided him with the time. I waited a little bit and a woman comes out and directs the two women that walked up after me with no reservation to a seat. I objected having been there first and with a reservation. The woman says she will seat me next. Why? I don't know and would hope that it wasn't because of the color of my skin. We had two waitresses that were cool and the only reason why I didn't take my money else where. The food was not terrible, but just ok. I would not go back.

Loved everything we tried here. The charcuterie board, dumplings, pasta, wings, and braised short ribs were all amazing. Absolutely enjoyed our cocktails! Definitely coming back again, and can't wait to experience this place post pandemic.

Late last minute reservation. The manager was accommodating and allowed us to sit even though the kitchen closed at 10pm and we made a 10pm reservation. The service was great and the food was delish. No complaints will be back again.

Food was good as always.
My husband was very disappointed because he was expecting Brunch. According to your website it still shows “Brunch Saturday & Sunday “ and when we arrived we were informed they were not serving brunch.
