Service was amazing. Always was looked after, had our coffee refilled, and timing of everything was perfect. I had the scrapple skillet with a fried egg. However, it was more like a hardboiled egg. Nevertheless, it was still great, just needs a bit of tweaking. I recommend going before 10:00. The place is small, and starts to fill up around 10:30/11.

Our server Crystal was fantastic. She was very busy but that didn't stop her from checking on us frequently and getting us whatever we needed. The food was also great and the beer selection was full of lots of different styles.

I think the A team was off and the B team worked brunch. The food was off big time. We go regularly for dinner and it is excellent. Salad wasn’t even right.Brunch should be revamped before we go back.

Nice, quaint bar. Visited from out of town and did not regret it. Had good options for vegetarians. I tried the tofu naan wrap as well as the Brussels sprouts and a special flatbread of the day; did not disappoint!

The meal started off well with the lemon parmesan roasted brussel sprouts, roasted to perfection until you got to the bottom of the bowl with a thick layer of oil. My husband got a burger, which he stated was the worst burger he has ever had. I had the short ribs over mac&cheese. The mac&cheese tasted like it was one of those Lipton pastas. The short ribs were tender but not too much flavor. Upon leaving the restaurant, my husband and I instantly felt sick to our stomachs. I was really really disappointed because I had read good reviews. I would not go their again.

I thought we were going to be able to try their famous fried chicken but it wasn't on the menu. We ordered sandwiches. The chicken sandwich was good but the sweet potatoe fries were over cooked. The braised short rib sandwich was supposed to come on a new "better" roll but came on a baguette. Overall, good food but probably won't make it a destination.

The food was very good! The eggs were a bit over poached but I had the short rib bash that fell apart and melted in my mouth. The staff was very nice and the restaurant was not too packed. Overall, great brunch experience at Moonlight. I would recome to anyone looking to get away from the crowds and searching for a low key gem.

Food was ok just a bit lacking in flavor and salt. The hostess never told the server we were waiting, never brought us menus and we had to seek out a server after waiting at our table for 15 minutes. Our server was apologetic and fantastic she was under the impression we were finished our meal. I love the ambiance and location and the drinks were fantastic. I will be back but I think the hostess may need further training.
