Omg I’m so glad I found this gem through OpenTable!! My daughter and I wanted brunch so I went to the app and found Moonshine Philly. We enjoyed everything we ordered and even met Celebrity Chef Christine Hazel!!! Talk about the ultimate dining experience…my daughter, who’s a Food Network junkie, recognized her and even took a selfie…

I’ll definitely be back!!!

Service was great and the drinks were very good but food was just decent. Burger was over cooked and fries were undercooked. Salad was forgettable.

Moonshine is a few blocks from my new house so i was dying to try it. The service was perfect. The staff was attentive and friendly. The drink menu was pretty extensive. The food was delicious. They ran out of the item my husband wanted so he went with the burger. He said it was one of the best he ever had. I had the blackened chicken over pesto gnocchi and it was delicious. The portion size was perfect. We took home a few things for our 20-year old son and he said the cheeseburger eggrolls were so good he could use a second order. Great casual dining at a great price point.

We ate outside, so there was no noise problem and the atmosphere was nice. Severs were friendly and helpful, although since they were inside sometimes it took a while before they came out. The humus platter was large and good, the gnocci good, but the chicken overdone, which lowers the rating.

Been to Moonshine many times and have never been disappointed. The chicken pesto gnocchi were great and the Asiago Chicken Cutlet was a great surprise.

Our server was really lovely but if he had (been able to?) come by our table more often I would’ve spent a whole lot more money on drinks. Also this is the second time I have been here and asked for a medium burger and gotten a completely well done burger.

Fairly large menu with flexibility to add protein ( like chicken, shrimp, salmon) to salads and bowls. GreT special like sirloin and lump crab on garlic mash! Great neighborhood place to be offering inside or outdoor dining.

Great food and service; the burgers there are very good, and I would also recommend the cheesesteak eggrolls. The service is good, although lately it's been very busy so expect check-ins to be more spaced out. It's a good neighborhood gastropub with a few interesting options, especially at this price point.

We had a 6:45 reservation at 7:35 we finally got up and left because no one even came to our table and took a drink order. Once the hostess sat us we never saw anyone.

Their food was pretty solid in the past but the last three times I’ve gone it’s been pretty disappointing. Brussel sprouts are still great though

We absolutely loved our dinner at this great neighborhood place. Weather was good so we ate outside under their heaters, which were perfect. The drinks were very good and reasonably priced, and the food was delicious, especially the French onion soup. Service was wonderful as well. Highly, highly recommend this place.

A business associate and I met for lunch - we were cheerily greeted and were able to sit at a table of our choosing. The building seems to be part of an old row of homes, and is has a unique old time tavern feel. I had an excellent “ice pick” made with their lemoncello and fresh iced tea. My associate had a “mule” which he really enjoyed. We enjoyed our meals - a short rib grilled cheese special with house cut fries and the pensport burger with tater tots. Service was excellent, not too intrusive and very friendly.

Went for margaritas and tacos, stayed for the atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised that we arrived during happy hour. The food was great (highly recommend the teriyaki salmon tacos). Loved sitting outside on a beautiful day! The waiting staff is very friendly. Just a great experience overall.

I have been to moonshine numerous times and I’ve always enjoyed my time and food there. The waitress who was there on Wednesday was so horrific we actually had to leave prior to ordering food. I have never in my life felt so uncomfortable and honestly devastated I won’t ever go back again. I do not blame the whole establishment on one person but I cannot go back there, I honestly got the vibe she would spit in my food.

The staff was conscientious about COVID-19 practices, but their manager was grossly ignorant and basically just grossly unprofessional against them. He wore his mask below his chin to wipe tables, talk with customers, and work in the kitchen, while I observed the rest of the staff observe masking protocols appropriately. As a frontline healthcare worker, I found the managers unprofessional attitude and lack of adherence to protocols insulting. Per another employee, his name is Sammy. If It would not be for the effect that it would have on the entire staff that were adhering to protocols despite staffing shortages and a very busy evening, I would report them to the city/state.

Got off to a bad start since I reserved indoor "standard" seating, but when I got there, they had simply tried putting me outside. When I pointed out what I had reserved, they didnt have anything inside and tried putting me on a high-top table outside, and after I balked there too, we were finally seated at the tail end of the outside seating.

Waiter came by immediately, and we ordered two drinks and two entrees only. Drinks came out relatively quickly, but we waited a LONG time for the rest of the food to come. Waiter occasionally came by checking in, but after drinks we were just waiting (and waiting) for food.

I thought the two dishes were solid, but the seating/waiting issue dropped the experience down to 3-stars (and I'm being generous on the 3rd). Classic restaurant overbooking on a Saturday night. I get it..its COVID times and they are doing their best to survive, but at least offer up some snacks, drinks or something to make up for the wait.

Such a hidden gem, yet a gem nonetheless! Everything on the menu sounds delightful and is delicious upon tasting. I will be back again and again for something new, even though I’m stuck on the braised short rib.
