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.

the chicken pesto gnocci and the burger, as always, were excellent. Since opening up the main dining room the seating is more comfortable. Our server, Erin, was great. Whoever the chef is, he(she) puts out a product that is delicious-everything on the menu is tasty and fresh.

We love Moonshine. One of the better burgers in South Philly I think. Sergio is a wonderful server! We seem to get him every time and he's lovely. Also the host is a delight. Really nice time every time.

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.

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.
