This place is a wonderful understated restaurant that has fabulous brunch and some of the best comfort food. Their drinks are phenomenal. You must have a little of their Moonshine on hand!

We were in town for meetings and a convention at the Convention Center. We hosted a mid-size reception during the week for our work colleagues at Moonshine, with an open bar and self-serve appetizers. This place is lovely! We had a perfect evening (weather). Location was easy walking distance from the Convention Center. Service was exceptional...seamless, not intrusive, but very... More

My wife and have come here a couple of times for work events and always had a great time. Most recently we were here to celebrate a friends wedding. The patio venue was perfect and the service could not have been better...even to the point they tracked you down to fill up your water. The food is amazing to the... More

Some of the best brunch I've ever had. A great variety of southern comfort food and some nice surprises. The food stations are all over the large restaurant, which has a large outdoor patio, separate bar and the main restaurant area. All the food here is with bit of a twist. Scrambled eggs with chorizo and cornflake fried chicken for... More

This place is HUGE! And every section looks very cool. We opted for the downstairs bar with fireplace and outdoor seating. The Moonshine goes down smooth and packs a punch - and I'm writing this as a martini gal. The food was excellent, the service was super friendly. Thumbs up!

If you are downtown, this is a fun place with great outdoor seating. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is ok. On this trip, I was on my own alone. I ordered an Old Fashioned, which was just barely passable. Their Chicken and Waffles were good - what's not to like about fried chicken and maple... More

I was here for a friend's work party, so we had buffet style appetizers and an open bar (aka not your usual restaurant experience). That being said, this place is lovely. The patio is beautiful, the drinks were great, the food was delicious, and the service was good. Would love to go back and actually eat a meal here.

Our hostess told us it would be a 30 minute wait but it only took 10, even with the SXSW crowd. It was perfect weather to sit on the beautiful patio. Both the hostess and waitress were very kind and helpful. They provide free popcorn which was perfect because it did not fill me up too much before our amazing... More

Popped in for brunch while at SXSW last week and was very happy I did. The variety of food was fantastic -- lots of local fare including cheese grits, spicy sausage, and mac and cheese, plus all the expected dishes like eggs and bacon. Yum! Can't wait to go back.

My group of 6 were seated on a busy SXSW night in 30 minutes. Nice to sit outside on their patio with a drink and wait. Our server Jasmine was fantastic!! Everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly. Would definitely recommend!!
