    Definitely try the shrimp and grits! Four large shrimp with super tasty & creamy grits & a jalapeño sauce. My friends and I split this as an appetizer, but I had this as my meal my 2nd time there!

    Extensive beer selection with ridiculously good food. Get the seared tuna, mussels, netsuke bacon lollipops, bone marrow and best for last... Carpaccio!!!

    If you get the shrimp and grits, try it with the sauce on the side. It is really great without it, and there is A LOT of the jalapeño sauce to the point where it kind of overpowers the flavor.

    The Moth's slinging 10-12 classic cocktails like the Vesper, the Sazerac, and the Dark & Stormy, all of which will fill the void of your confidence. Read more

    A seasonal menu that maintains local favorites. Incredible selection of beers on tap. I suggests grabbing a number of shared plates: Marrow, Wagyu Carpaccio, Duck Wings, Moth Balls. Pair with a brew.

    The Badass Bacon Waffle and the Country Breakfast are delicious options for a satisfying brunch, specially when paired with a Bloody Mary or a North Coast Old Rasputin Imperial Stout!

    There’s no need to meddle with a recipe if nothing’s wrong, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with Meddlesome Moth! What a great experience – there are many lessons to learn from the bar! Read more

    Awesome atmosphere. I tried the grilled cheese and gazpacho. I didn't think either were spectacular. However, I will be back because I saw some other items I might like. Pecan pie was to die for.

    Meddlesome Moth pioneered the gastropub movement in Dallas, and remains head and shoulders above the rest, with food that's better than ever and a breathtaking beer selection. [Eater 38 Member]

    Get a side of mayo to dip those french fries in and work your way through the local taps. This Design District beer bar has always had great mussels and an impressive beer list.

    Dinner for two: $$$. Sitting under the stained glass Elvis: priceless. Oh and try the bone marrow (my first time) cause its indescribable, in a good way. Coming back to try everything.

    Their burger is my Best Burger in Dallas, and their zucchini chips are thin and salty with a great Ranch dressing to dip. Add the zucchini as a side to your burger, and you've got a fabulous meal!

    The Coq Au Vin, featured as a special was divine. Came here because they feature sour beers (Rodenbach), noticed many Moscow mules floating about in copper cups and for good reason

    The best Steak Tartare and Mussels in Dallas! Great ambiance not too upscale. One of the best place for caipirinha cocktail. My favorite restaurant in Dallas by far!

    I visited this place a couple of days ago; I just forgot to write a review. Well the place itself has a cool setting and very lovely servers. The foods were great also though with a minimum of portion

    The Meddlesome Moth features rare craft beers and delicately curated gastro-pub fare in a cheeky, cathedral-like spot in the burgeoning Design District. [Eater 38 Member]

    Legit might be a top five place in Dallas. Sweetbreads were great. Beef tartare is good. Beer selection is fantastic. Wait staff might be the coolest around

    Bone marrow, mussels, beer selection. It's no wonder this place is rated #1! Sit at the bar for a more authentic, less rigid and formal gastropub experience.

    UPDATE: The Chicken Pie has been removed from the menu but is on special occasionally I'm told. Never mind, No pie gives way to the Lamb, the Bacon Lollipops, well, really any of the stick dishes.

    Even traditional brunch drinks get a boost of beer goodness. The bloody Mary is made a bit creamier with a jolt of Imperial stout, and the excellent mimosa is made with Hefeweisen.

    Bone marrow! (And pretty much everything else on the menu is phenomenal.) Such an interesting and yummy dish. This place is very cool! Love it.

    This is a bar that hordes their best beers in the back for employees and special occasions that one must be invited to. I highly recommend going to the Common Table.

    Put yourself in the bar's hands and try some different beers They're happy to grab a sample of drafts so you know you get something you like.

    A bit over-hyped, good food but all the dishes have a lot of competing flavors...German bratwurst on cous cous w/ pickled celery instead of kraut or spaezle? Come on y'all.

    Beer selection 😍 Generous marrow bones, BBQ shrimp was ridiculously good, tomato and burrata, inspired bratwurst plate, broccolini gruyere baked special.

    Smoked chicken salad croissant is amazing! Also, any place that gives me a Coke in a vintage bottle with Santa on it is a winner!

    Thai Mussels are amazing. Make sure to use the bread to dunk in all of the delicious broth. Also Ahi Tuna "stick meat" is great.

    For two, I suggest sharing one order of mussels (classic or Thai) and one shared plate (shrimp and grits is delish). Fav draft beer = Rogue

    The place to go in the Design District for cafe beer and excellent food. Try the risotto, it never disappoints.

    Do NOT get Shrimp & Grits. It is good but the subtle flavors make for a relatively boring dish. Jalapeno gravy tastes like green sauce on enchiladas at every Mexican place. Sweetbread is 10x better!

    Beer selection is great and all beer is served in the proper glass, at the right temp and with a nice head. Order anything off the food menu. It's all awesome.

    for eats definitely try the veal sweetbreads and bone marrow, the 5 spice pork belly was forgettable, the texture was more akin to pulled pork, ask for samples of beers on draft or try a flight!
