Iv tried to call multiple times. The phones go straight to voicemail. There is no way to call and place a to go order. So you have to walk in then you wait to even be greeted.. why can’t o just call you and place an order

Not sure if they do call in order..i just walked in and dined...service was pretty quick. Sorry

I haven't been impressed this entire time I've been sitting here. They continue to overlook our table and haven't checked on us in over 15 min.

That's sad! Especially since i had a decent experience

Nice place, outside seating available. Large booths, kind staff, decent food. Located in the downtown Houston area. Lavender mule was surprisingly very good! 1 thing worth mentioning-Food was a little slow seemingly and restaurant wasn't nearly full at the time of day I visited. Not sure if that's typical.

Food was absolutely AMAZING. I'd highly recommend the brisket quesadillas and pulled pork tacos. As well as their Mac and cheese and chicken sandwich. However, I'd skip the banana pudding. Tastes like artificial banana pudding with vanilla wafers and a few fresh bananas tossed in. Drinks are good tho, and the service was great as well. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.

What a great spin on southern food! The breakfast tacos were incredible and packed with flavor. Try their jalapeño Bloody Mary while your there.

Food was great! Service was awful! Our server mumbled, did not refill our drinks (we got our own), he also did not come back to the table after we got our food. I felt like we were a bother to him. Love Moonshiners but with sevice like that it will be awhile before we come back.One server Morgan did ask if we needed anything.

I always have a great experience at moonshiners. My parents and I frequent the place before lots of Astros games since location is close enough to walk to MMP afterwards. Food is always delicious and the service is always friendly!

Nick, Alyssa ,Janelle, Kiara, Braelyn , Gabby helped me and my friend when we came in. Their customer service was awesome! I love the honey mustard and fried okra! The barbecue chicken was so yummy, the chicken and waffles my friend has were delicious as well! Overall I’d give this place a 5 star rating, thanks to them , the location, the great atmosphere, the menu, and the cooks, we’ll definitely come back! I want to thank the owners for hiring them !!

Stopped in for quick snack and sports updates. Banana pudding was as big as my son's head! Delicious and he ate the whole thing. I had a side of fresh hand battered fried okra. Been here several times, good food, service, and atmosphere.

The cocktail and brunch menu options reinforced the Southern vibe here. Seating was a mix of booths and regular chairs with a bar area as well. I liked that there were many tv screens. And I noticed different beers on tap together with a selection of wines. I enjoyed the peach-shine tea from the good variety of brunch cocktails available.

As a bar the moonshiners' rating is probably closer to five stars for its lively atmosphere and friendly service. I had the shrimp and grits, which was smothered in gravy (low country style) and a copious amount of bacon. Unfortunately they were a bit heavy handed with the spice and it ruined the overall flavor. I like heat as much as the next guy, but not when it's overwhelming. That said, I'd probably return but order something else next time.

When we arrived, we were told to seat ourselves anywhere we'd like. This was ok but we ended up outside which was a bit cold. We asked our server if she could turn on the heater and she said the manager hasn't agreed to turn on the heaters for the past 3 weekends. Unfortunately she didn't know why the manager hadn't turned them on. It took forever to get our order but we didn't complain because the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the mama's fried chicken sandwich with fries. It was huge, juicy, and scrumptious. My friends ordered the brisket grilled cheese with fries and spicy tomato soup. I'm giving it 4 stars because when customers seat themselves, the restaurant will have 2 people at a table for 6. We saw so many customers leave because of the seating situation and this was the reason we sat outdoors. I typically don't mind sitting outside but it was extremely uncomfortable being approached by several homeless people who were panhandling.

It was fairly tasty, but for your prices it was not anything special. You are downtown, you need to amp up your creativity and presentation if you are going to charge $13 for a grilled cheese. My husband ordered an old fashioned for ~$10 and it was tiny with a huge sphere ice cube. Pretty sure there was only about a shots worth of liquid in the whole thing total. Service could also use some TLC. Took 25-30 minutes to turn out a plate of nachos (appetizer) after they were brought out incorrectly the first time. It was 6:15 PM. So not the heart of the rush, really, few excuses.

Grabbed lunch here on our Houston weekend getaway. You'll likely need to wait for a table, but know it's worth it! 2 of us had their award winning brisket grilled cheese sandwich and have zero doubt about why it won. It was delicious! One had a burger and one had the pulled pork tacos and everyone was happy with the food... And the moonshine drinks. Don't miss the jalapeño Bloody Mary, either!

This place is a seven star. I love the drinks with actually moonshine in it. Yet its mixed so well that you wont taste the moonshine. Then they have the greatest chicken and waffles ever with Blackberry Chutney Sauce. Dont let me get started on the brisket nachos.

This restaurant was really awesome. We were on a business trip and asked around what would be a great place to go, we had four people tell us to go to Moonshiner’s. The food was incredible, the staff was great and the atmosphere was perfect for while we were looking for. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a cool place to eat in this area.

Decides to stop in for a quick drink, but due to great service and terrific food, we stayed longer. Bartender definitely had menu knowledge and each if her suggestions were on point. I truly enjoyed the brisket grilled cheese with loaded mashed potatoes and the pie was really good. Will definitely be returning and trying other items off of the menu.

Even though it's located DOWNTOWN Houston, the atmosphere was peaceful and happy. The area is clean ( someone was picking up the trash as I was walking towards the building), I felt safe and at ease. The customer service was great and the food was awesome. Pricing was to be desired, but all in all it was cool.

The seating situation is less to be desire, it's literally a free for all trying to find a table and be seat. This also created a problem with the amount time it took for the waiter to introduce herself. Yes the Chicken Sandwich and Southern table brisket nachos were delicious was great, but I can go to another restaurant and have better customer service with food that taste just as great.

Had brunch at Moonshiners and it was excellent! The Brisket Benedict was top notch and the Southern Surf was unique and delicious. First cup of coffee was a bit luke-warm and no half and half cream available for coffee was the only draw-back. Recommended!

Charming location with great atmosphere. There for Sunday morning breakfast, they offered both lunch and breakfast menus. The French toast w/homemade whipped cream, fresh strawberries & homemade whiskey syrup was to die for! The watermelon salad w/feta cheese, strawberries and a mild balsamic vinaigrette dressing offered 3 big slices of delicious melon, was unique, delicious and very refreshing. The service was excellent in spite of the growing crowd. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

Good beer and food here. I stopped by for lunch after the Houston marathon and enjoyed a good burger and some addicting kettle chips. Reasonable beer selection too. I came back for dinner and really liked the rainbow trout with garlic mashed potatoes. The banana pudding was tasty too. A rock solid casual place.

I went for dinner and sat at the bar. The staff was very friendly and recommended some great options. For an appetizer we tried the fried mushrooms and my main meal was the brisket grilled cheese sandwich. All the food was flavorful. For dessert we tried the pecan pie and peach cobbler. They were both amazing. Definitely a great spot.

This brisket is almost as good as my daddy's! Let's just say I love it!! Kitchen opened til 11, which is nice during the weekdays since most restaurants nearby close at 8. The moonshine mojito was fantastic as well! A well-done twist on a classic cocktail.Also they did fantastic with my shellfish allergy!!!
