    Great place to chill and be laid back. Lots of outdoor space to grab a beer. They only downside is that they only serve beer. No wine or liquor

    Gourmet burgers, a wide selection of beers on tap and good friends make this a good spot after a long week

    This place is okay but in all honesty, there isnt something special to keep me coming back. Also, I had high expectations on the food and It was somewhat of a let down.

    This is a great place to grab a craft beer or a growler to go. The food is also amazing! The Cheech or the Chong are awesome burgers!

    The pork tenderloin sandwich on the pretzel bread is the best sandwich I've ever put in my face. Beer selection is the best around. I dig this place.

    They've totally improved on the bathrooms thank goodness. You have to listen real carefully for your number because they serve the food from the back side. But food still quite tasty and different.

    Moon Tower Inn isn't a restaurant as much as it is a beacon in the night: Come here and we will comfort you with sausages and beer. Read more
  • The Wall Street Journal
    They have 66 beers on tap (a few of which are made on-site), a selection of wild game sausages and hamburgers, and a terrifically irreverent, often profane notion of what constitutes customer service. Read more

    If you like to be edgy, When ordering a dog, ask for 'chef's choice'. If u wanna play it safe, when asking for 'chefs choice', just mention what you DON'T want. You won't go wrong. ENJOY!
