Our server took forever to attend to us after we completed our meal. We had to ask the hostess to call him to our table. Other than that, food was pretty good.

Good food, very good service, but if you get seated in the downstairs bar area in the booths you can;t even talk...very loud music and you are right under the speakers.

We had been passing by this restaurant and have been wanting to go for a while. It always looks hopping! It did not disappoint. We took a table on the outdoor patio because we like to sit outside and the night was nice. We had a great waiter and we loved all of our food choices. We would definitely go back again.

Food was good, service was a little slow but it was a big game day. We told them it was a birthday, but they ignored it. Would have been nice for a drink or a dessert on the house

My friend and I went here for the first time! Loved my steak. It was perfectly cooked and was the right tenderness! Also loved our appetizers! We even left and came back later for drinks. Upstairs is a great vibe and super comfortable. The booths were spacious and the place looked amazing.

Staff friendly and accommodating even though they had to work on Thanksgiving. I like the way they redid this space: I have been to this restaurant in a couple of its iterations when different owners had it, but this one is the best. I know, a bar and grille for THANKSGIVING.? The food was tasty. My companions had the turkey dinner option; I chose the tenderloin filet. Absolutely great, tender and done just right. The veggies were yummy and the lemon quinoa better than I would have imagined. The sticky toffee pudding was over the top. I’d go back for more.

I did not give this restaurant an excellent rating due to their inconsistencies around dress code. My 72 year old father was dresses casually and had on tennis shoes which are comfortable for his feet. We were approached prior to making it to the front door and told we could not come into the establishment due to him wearing jogging pants and tennis shoes. He changed in his car into jeans but they made an exception for his tennis shoes. While we were dining I noticed quite a few people come into the restaurant in gym shoes and no one said anything to them. I pointed it out to 2 managers and they advised that they would speak with the host about this. Terrible to be made to feel like crap by seeing others walk in wearing tennis shoes. My poor dad felt harassed for no apparent reason. I won't be returning and will be posting on yelp!

Picked this venue to watch the Astros World Series game and have a business dinner with clients. It was an excellent choice because it was classier than the usual sports bar. We also found the food to be very good. I would definitely go back.

Friendly service, average food for an above average price puts Moxie’s firmly in the non-distinctive space. Many competitive options in the area that are far better. If you want a beer or drink in, essentially, an almost upscale sports bar - go. But no need to go for the dining and food.

Kimberly was our server and she was extremely friendly! Very pleasant and nice. This was our first time to the restaurant. Very cute atmosphere and decor. Started with the chicken lettuce wraps and they were delicious! Also had the calamari and loved the sauces. Salads, burger, and steak were terrific! My burger and husband's steak were cooked to perfection! We really enjoyed the meal!! Can't wait until they open the location in north Texas!

We went there to celebrate a birthday and we will not return because of the security guard that works there. He was very rude and disrespectful to me and a member of our party over his tennis shoes. It a horrible policy to restrict people with certain tennis shoes from coming in after 7pm when there are people inside with the same shoes on. To add insult to injury he comes upstairs to kick us out the restaurant as we are closing our tickets. We were already leaving but his abrasive attitude sealed it for me. As long as he is there I will never come back to Moxie’s.
