    A little disappointed they were out of calamari and pizza. But happy they had freshly baked blonde brownie dessert.

    Not much notable, really, other than the waiter was very attentive and there was no problem to move to a different booth from the one we had been first taken to. The table top had a stickiness to it, but it appeared clean, so I kept my hands off of it. The selection was small and the food was meh, but I don’t eat very often at chain restaurants. This was my first visit to a Moxies in about 10 years. From about the mid-90’s to the very early 2000’s it had been one of my favourite dining establishments. If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive dining experience that is not fast food, this might do in a pinch. I did find it loud, but that might just be me not being used to these environments for the past 2 years. It was about 90% full when we left.

    We went there so that my wife could enjoy a specific salad that she had on a previous visit. She loved the meal from her previous visit. We were then told that you no longer carried it, so given her specific dietary requirements, she ended up have to choose or create something else. So a bit disappointing. We had a young mother and her new born next to us, so it was a bit noisey. We have 10 kids, so we get all that. Lighting was very bad with all of the window shades open. So no matter where we sat - East or West side of our booth, it was a bit bright. Our waitress was outstanding. She did the best she could do. But it was not the visit we were hoping it would be.

    Food was great on Mother’s Day. Thanks for the complimentary drinks for my wife and mom. The only feedback would be the small portion of calamari for 18 bucks and a $3 up-charge on a salad over fries when I am already paying over 20 bucks for a simple beef dip!? Anyway, best beef dip I ever had so I probably will return👍

    The eggs Benedict were not good. Eggs were runny, bacon undercooked and bread hard to cut. The other 3 meals were ok.

    Server was kind, but brought non decafe coffee, when requested, and didn’t tell us it wasn’t until we confirmed. Forgot drinks multiple times. Asked how serious an allergy was (likely for cross contamination reasons, but an allergy is an allergy). The kitchen would not substitute an ingredient without an additional charge, and would not lower the cost of the meal without that ingredient or the substitute? Makes no sense.

    We were moved from a nice bright table by a window to a cavernous booth directly under a speaker playing music so loud we could barely talk. Food was slow, burger was so so at best, had to ask twice for water and twice more for the bill. $160 for three people seemed like a lot considering one of them ate from the kids meal. To top it all off, the group that “needed” our table didn’t show up for another hour plus.

    Had lunch with friends at Moxies and found the food and service to be excellent. Our server was friendly and prompt. We all ordered the Cobb salad with different add-ons, and enjoyed the meal very much. The noise level was perfect for a catch-up visit. Always enjoy my visits to Moxies.

    We were disappointed with our meals. I watched the kitchen and knew that our fries sat under the warmer for well over 15 minutes...the buns on our sandwiches weren't fresh... We were there later 7:45pm but that shouldn't make a difference. Usually the food is really good. Definitely didn't live up to our expectations last night.

    Service was just ok.. not much of a keto/ low carb options. Chicken was pretty salty, not sure if it was the jerk or just too much salt. My partner had Steak was good.. Probably would try breakfast brunch menu next time…wasn’t a oh we can’t wait to go back experience. Terrible lighting. Those spot lights gotta go..was an ok evening. A lot better places honestly in the city.

    We enjoyed our Sunday evening meal at Shawnessy Moxies. The young server was excellent. Food service was great and our food as we expected. My husband does not like squash/zucchini which was the veg, which was only downside. I however enjoyed his veg.
