“Relaxed atmosphere, great service, amazing food!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Based on the recommendation from a friend, our family enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch at Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill, located in a beautiful historic building in downtown Austin. Though the restaurant doesn't take reservations on the weekends, we waited less than 30 minutes for a table. We were seated on the enclosed patio and though the morning was a bit chilly, the space was heated and quite comfortable.

The food was delicious! The brunch buffet included southern favorites - ham, chicken, biscuits, green chili grits - as well as more traditional brunch items ranging from a variety of scrambled egg dishes, to croissant sandwiches, and salads. The dessert table included Belgian waffles with lots of scrumptious toppings, a divine white chocolate bread pudding, cinnamon rolls, capuccino bundt cake, muffins and apple danish. We really appreciated that most of the food items were presented in small sizes allowing us to sample a wide variety of dishes without over-indulging.

Parking can be a challenge in downtown Austin and though we were fortunate to find street parking nearby, the restaurant offers convenient valet parking for just $6.

This brunch was the highlight of our weekend in Austin!

“Great food, comfortable place, worth the wait”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Locals took us here when we were in town. This was one of their two favorite restaurants in Austin. First, be prepared to wait for a table. Two of us had the Waldorf salad and we cleaned our plates. I also had a side of mac and cheese per their recommendation and it was good. The atmosphere was nice and casual. I will return when in Austin.
