    The risotto is delicious. The salmon was cooked perfectly. The mussels needed some flavor. The service was great!

    Enjoyed my first visit to Moonshine Philly. A great beer selection, and good variety on the menu. The rice bowl I had was very tasty, and my companions really enjoyed the pork dumpling appetizer.

    A solid neighborhood bistro with very friendly staff, great food, and very reasonable prices. Lots of outdoor seating, including a few covered tables. Italian influenced menu as expected for the area - a few pasta dishes, sandwiches, salads, meats, cutlets. The shrimp and cavatelli dish was very good. 5 or 6 nightly specials every day. There is something for everyone. A solid and reasonably priced bourbon list (20+ selections) if that’s your thing. Overall, very good and will definitely visit again. If I lived nearby, I would be here a few times a month.

    We had to ask for the rest of our food, the check, more water and we were never asked if we wanted anything else It was busy so maybe they just weren’t staffed for the large crowd I would go back and give it another try because the food was good 👍

    Celebrated my son’s 26th year birthday here with his siblings. The food was great and the drinks did not disappoint! Expected parking to be a problem but there’s a lot less than 1/2 a block away that can be used after 6 pm. Very nice experience! Excellent and very accommodating waitstaff.

    I’ve been going to Moonshine for years. They had some difficulties with the cooking staff a few years ago, but they have completely turned that around. Excellent food, a comfortable ambience and absolutely first-rate service. The Asiago Chicken is delicious!

    Moonshine did not disappoint. We were greeted at the door and seated right away. Our server was friendly and kept checking on us to make sure we were doing ok. Got the French onion soup (amazing) and fried pickles to start. I got the crispy chicken sandwich with fries and the sauce they used on it was so good! My gf got the chicken piccata ravioli which was probably better than my sandwich. Will definitely go back!

    Enjoyed the wide sidewalk along Moyamensing Avenue, which lent itself to comfortable dining al fresco along with the plentiful heat lamps and a blue-stone firepit located near our table.* Overall, service was pleasant, if a bit haphazard**. We enjoyed two appetizers: fried pickles and cheesesteak queso. Would get the fried pickles again--nice, light batter, and good flavor. Would not get the cheesesteak queso again--nothing special and the cheese congealed too quickly in the cool, autumn weather. The various burgers the table ordered were tasty (and messy!) and between the hand cut fries and the tater tots, the fries won hands down--tots could've used more time in the oven. The drinks were good, though they were out of the two types of Knob Creek listed on the menu. Could see how Moonshine Philly would be a nice neighborhood watering hole. *Both ran out of propane as we were wrapping our meal. **One order was entered incorrectly and had to ask a few times for hot sauce, which was said to be tabasco, but was in fact sriracha.
