Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: As the name might suggest, Moonshine is all about downhome fare and good drinks. However, much to the owner's credit, the restaurant still places a premium on food quality, service and ambience, and also offers a good Sunday brunch. The beautiful grounds feature a historical carriage-house-turned-bar and a snug patio, perfect for cool days and nights. The indoor dining room is also cozy, with limestone walls, dim lights and polished wood floors. On the appetizer front, we recommend the beer-battered asparagus or corn dog shrimp, both signature items. Filling entrées include cornbread-stuffed rainbow trout, flat-iron steak with blue cheese butter and buffalo meatloaf. On nearly every visit, it seems that someone falls for the spiced-up version of the ultimate comfort food: green chile macaroni and cheese. For something lighter, try the spinach salad with goat cheese, dried cranberries, orange slices and spiced almonds. If you're merely parched, a Moonlit cosmo martini or hard lemonade will fix you right up.
