    Comfort food and cocktails on a big back porch; a calm sanctum around the corner from the chaos of Austin Convention Center. Gets very crowded, so make reservations and avoid peak hours.

    Great option for brunch. Loved their peppery Bloody Mary homemade mix. Kale bacon dip, grits, chicken and waffles. Bring your appetite and leave happy. Love the patio outside too for waiting.

    Great all you can eat Sunday American comfort food brunch. While there aren't any real speciality dishes, every dish is cooked just right. The only problem is the 2 hour wait. Valet parking is cheap.

    Very good home style southern dishes.Great selection of Bourbon if not a little pricey. Ask to see the “Brown Book” for the special bourbons.Incredible selection in one place! Chicken Fried Steak 👍🏼

    I have been loving place for years! Its the only restaurant I enjoy waiting for a table. Go to the bar area in the back and sit by a cozy fire while the mixologist prepares you something special.

    Need a delicious "home cooked" meal? Look no further than the comfort food at Moonshine. Everything on the menu is heart warming and fulfilling! Drinks, Apps, Popcorn, Mac n Cheese, you name it!

    Sunday brunch is AMAZING! We were here on Easter and the food was delicious and abundant. I usually hate buffets because food gets cold but this buffet was out of this world. $4 bloody Mary's too!

    This place is amazing. Nothing on this menu lacks taste. We did 3 dishes and split them. I recommend the meatloaf, Mac and cheese or the habanero steak.

    Started off w/the popcorn (delish). I got the pork chop which was juicy. If you have anything at this place - try to green chile cheese grits. You will thank your taste buds later!

    Popcorn instead of bread is a unique touch when you sit down. Get here early on a weekday night to avoid a wait, and save room for their cast iron skillet desserts!

    The brunch is out if this world. Start off with an incredible $4 bloody or pomegranate mimosa, don't miss the candied yams, cornflake chicken, jalapeño sausage, king casserole and bread pudding.

    Comfy southern decor with an outdoor patio and bar. Delicious southern cooking and excellent Silvermoon Margaritas. Can't go wrong with the chicken and waffles, corn bread, and large desserts.

    Do the corn bread stuffed trout. You'll feel good about yourself for ordering fish but realize it's satisfying when everything comes drenched in butter.

    my favorite place in downtown Austin, try the back bar (patio) if there is a wait. Chicken and Waffles is my favorite. Old School but nice

    The shrimp with blue cheese grits and wilted greens was outstanding. The seasonal white lightening my husband thought went down smooth, I didn't care for it however it did smell like cucumbers!

    I had the blackened cat fish and the apple pie. All kinds of awesome! For a drink, try the strawberry moonshine mixed with hard lemonade.

    The Green Chile Macaroni was amazing! It was like a Mexican style elote w chicken and macaroni. I also liked their cornbread and sweet potato fries!

    Flat iron steak was delicious and cooked as I like it. Very tired, juicy and satisfying even though it's a top sirloin cut. Atmosphere is great and very nice staff.

    Came on a Saturday night. There was a long wait, so we got drinks at the bar beforehand. They were very good! Great food, great atmosphere, great service!

    This place has the best brunch!! $17.95 for all you can eat. And it's SO good! Warm cinnamon rolls, broccoli cheese casserole, king ranch chicken...YUM!!!

    Corn dog shrimp appetizer for $12 I would pass on these next time. It's just a shrimp on a skewer dipped in corn dog batter. If the shrimp was blacked or had flavor it would be better.

    Jalapeño hammered steak. Chicken and waffles. Mac and cheese. Brussels sprouts. Cocktails. Bourbon. Moonshine. It’s all amazingly delicious!

    Have been here twice & no one has left disappointed. Waterloo Compound is my cocktail of choice, all the food delivers (yummy green chile grits!) Seems to be constantly packed, so make a reservation.

    Some others say that the trout is the best. We agree its great, but don't forget the jalapeño cheddar grits and the Dr. Pepper chicken- not to miss. Here, it's way too hard to save room for dessert.

    Not many vegetarian options for me, but I was able to have the steak salad (minus the steak!) and it was amazing! Great flavors!

    Green Chile Macaroni is incredible! Very very tasty. I got a side of mashed potatoes and was underwhelmed. Very plain. The potato wedges were much better and had tons of flavor!

    If you get the pork sandwich, be prepared to eat it quickly. The beer cheese, while awesome, can make the bun soggy if left too long.

    $4.95 for kids chicken tenders and fries. Son seemed to really enjoy them they where more juicy then other places.

    The Chicken & Waffles were great. The Shrimp and Grits disgusting. My guess is the Chief is not from the South and does not understand what Shrimp and Grits mean.

    Be careful with changing anything about their happy hour cocktails (ie subbing the in an old fashioned). They'll hit you with the full price tab.

    Had never eaten here until a month ago. Ordered a beef fajita salad and subbed for chicken & it was quite possibly largest and tastiest salad I've ever had at a restaurant.
