Reviewed yesterday NEW

By the long wait and reviews, I had high expectations, but ultimately it was just average American food. The chicken in the sandwich was slightly burned. The black-eyed pea burger tasted pretty much like any other home made bean burger. Burger buns were not worth the calories. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. Building has a cool vibe (old... More

This was a unique dining experience. My wife and I went to Moonshine for dinner yesterday. I had the chicken & waffles. I'm not a huge guy, I don't eat a lot necessarily, but I had heard the chicken & waffles was good. When my plate came out, I was at first worried about the size of the platter (too... More

Our group of four came here before heading to a show. We had really good, unique food dishes. Service was great. Great atmosphere. There's parking next to the building and in a public ramp up the street.

This place came with high recommendations. It definitely has a cool vibe and I'm sure some of the food is great. I ordered the fried chicken salad and it was quite pedestrian. Nothing special. The mini corn muffins were good but this place seemed more hype than anything else.

I really like Moonshine and made plans with a friend to celebrate my birthday lunch there. We got there early hoping to snag street parking but apparently all the construction workers beat us to all the spots because there were very few people in the restaurant. We were forced to valet. For $7 at lunch (it's $9 at dinner just... More

The atmosphere was very nice. We sat in a separate bar area because the wait time was 45 minutes. Husband had the ribs and I had some triple pig sandwich with pulled pork, bacon, and ham. Both were great.
