A bunch of friends decide a catch up is long overdue. This is a great place to do that as it has big booths and a quiet vibe on a weeknight. We all enjoyed our meals but they were not exceptional. Service was very attentive.

I met a friend here for an evening drink recently because it was located conveniently for both of us. Despite having had an expensive, substandard steak and seafood meal here about 3 years ago, I decided to order the $18.75 steak sandwich for a lighter supper, with a ceasar salad as the side. The dish came smothered in "caramelized/crispy" onions... More

Met a business associate here for lunch and was quite impressed with the menu selections, price and service. The only negative was the amount of ambient noise in the main dining room, which meant conversation was a little stained.

Most people who follow my reviews know that 3 stars indicates a good restaurant that delivers what's advertised on the menu. Moxie's does that. I go to this store often for lunch with clients. I have a strong dislike for cilantro and they make sure, very sure, there is none in my food. I find the curry dishes well cooked... More

Arrived on a Saturday night, told it was a 30 min wait. Hostess asked for cell phone number but was confused by the fact that it was long distance. They couldn't find us despite the fact I was standing 3 feet away from her the entire wait. They never tried to just say my name. Made our wait closer to... More

Lunch was very good. The restaurant atmosphere is modern but pleasant enough to feel at home. Music being provided was rather loud and raises everyone's tone of voice to speak over the sounds of the music loud speakers. Alissa the waitress was very efficient and kept the table of 10 busy with beverages and food plates. The choices for lunch... More

Made reservations for 6:30pm on a Saturday night - Thanksgiving weekend - but not necessary, although by 7 pm it was pretty busy. We sat in the lounge, and shared a rib appetizer and then fish tacos. Both were excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. Moxies is always excellent, no matter what city.

Went in to Moxie's to celebrate my birthday and was treated to a lunch combo special. It had a choice of soup, salad or 1/2 sandwich. The soup was hearty and tasty and the sandwich was yummy! Because it was my birthday, I was offered a free dessert, a choice of 3 different and delicious treats. We shared it and... More

Good for the family or alone great food with decent service. I do not like being over served. Good kids options . I have eaten here at least 10 times always great food. The kids love the fancy desert that comes with the meal.
