Fun place with lots of variety. Hot fudge cake is heaven! Food was slow to come out but we were fine with that. Wear a sweater, quite cool inside.

... but it was really good. It's your standard burger place with a juke box and retro decor. The service was slow, but I think there was only one wait person serving about 15-20 tables. Food was good. Great place for families.

Looked online at Tripadvisor for reviews. Moondoggy's seem to fit our mood:) We wanted to patronize a local place if possible. It was clean & the girls very friendly:) We ordered a burger & chicken tenders, then added cobbler & ice cream. The food was good. All the retro decor was charming & definitely '50's style! Made the experience one... More

Lots of items on menu. Our food was excellent. Well above average service. Early rock and classic cars abound in the cool looking dining areas. Very pleased. Will return.

We were looking for a unique place to eat. Moondoggy's Diner was it. Nice old diner atmosphere. Our server was very attentive. The food was good. Fries were fabulous! We will be back so I can try some of their ice cream treats.

It has been years since I'd eat here, mainly because I live in another city now. My parents recommended Moondoggy's, and I was not disappointed. They brought complimentary chips with ranch to the table. I think they do this after 5pm for dinner only. We ordered a basket of onion rings. They were hot and crispy. They tasted like they... More

Moondoggy's is the typical 50s style dinner with all the pictures of stars and movie posters that you expect but the comparison stops there. The flavored fountain drinks and shakes are great. The burgers and dogs are very good and if you like chili and slaw on your dog or burger theirs is house made and exceptional. For some reason... More
