This restaurant is close by and really close to the movie theatre. Perfect for going for a drink after a movie.
The food is always dependable to be tasty. The portions are not too small nor too big, nor are the plates heaped with fillers such as fries. If I have company from out of town, I like taking them to Moxie's.

For people who have celiac disease, this is one of the best places to eat as they are really careful to avoid cross contamination. They food is always fabulous and service excellent.

We usually deal with Sarah C. during the day but we had a evening date and were served by Jay and he did an AWESOME Job! He had big shoes to fill with us being used to Sarah, but he pulled a great show!

We had a very nice, friendly and caring waitress. Share calamari and dry ribs were great. Steak in the steak salad was rare as requested. Miso Ramen bowl+shrimps was really good and the bowl was so large that it could probably serve two people, especially after shared plates. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was really well made and could be a meal of its own or great for sharing again. Overall, highly recommended based on our experience!

I’m officially tired of moxies. They need a new menu. Their prices are also too much for both the quality and quantity. We were there for mother’s day and sat close to the kitchen and it was so uncomfortable. Our eyes were burning from the fumes and we all smelled so bad afterwards. Overall we did not enjoy ourselves. Expensive night for nothing:(

But not for the steak. It is over priced for tough cuts. When compared to the keg the steaks are smaller, tougher and font come with complimentary bread which keg dues fit almost sand price. The Thai curry was lovely though.

Only thing was food could have been a bit warmer but portion sizes were excellent and flavor was spot on. Servers were friendly and informative. Will definitely be coming back!

Everything was wonderful except the calamari, it was very chewy and tough. I would not order it again but our meals were very good and the service was fantastic. The Orleans Moxie's is our usual location and we will continue to enjoy our date night there.

The food was excellent, but the service was less than acceptable for a Friday night. We were seated and waited 15 minutes before a server, who was not assigned to our section, took our order. Had there been more servers roaming the floor, than congregated by the entry way/holding the front door open, we might have had a better experience.

I would recommend Moxie's Grill and Bar in Orleans since the food was delicious and served promptly. My only critique would be that the music was very loud in the restaurant area and even louder in the bar. Clients have to shout to one another in order to hold a conversation.

Service was excellent and as always the atmosphere is pleasant. I sons stick with peppercorn sauce was tender and flavourful although the side of beats were overcooked and tough. I ordered fish tacos and while they were tasty there was not much fish- a bit underwhelming. Our meals are usually consistently good - steak fir my son never disappoints but I’d recommend more chunks of fish for the price if the tacos.
