I brought a group of twelve people to Moondoggies for lunch after a three mile walk in Port Royal. The staff was very accommodating especially since I only called in our reservation fifteen minutes before we arrived. Everyone's meal looked delicious and the group gave the restaurant high marks. My own portabello sandwich was most flavorful. The atmosphere and staff... More

The last time I ate here was with a crowd of 20 plus neighbors so it was hard to give a fair review. So glad I went back! Our table ordered the Beef on Weck, Reuben, and Spriced Shrimp Burger...all excellent. Although we were told when we walked in that there would be a bit of a wait for our... More

The cuisine targets middle range American foods. Prices are reasonable. The server we had was super attentive. The food good. The dessert, a kind of pie like a Reese cup, was a home run.

Moondoggies is an out of the way spot in Port Royal that is always good. Fried pickles are great. Shrimp po boy is wonderful with lightly fried shrimp. Staff is always friendly.

Food was okay. Nothing I'd return for. Old house with wood floors. Cute setting, just nothing impressive about food or service. Not really suited to small children.

My wife and I eat there three or four times a month. We have never had a bad meal there. We continue to be amazed at the wonderful service as well as the variety of the specials b If you are in the area for lunch you should not miss Moondoggies.
