I recently had lunch with a colleague here and was impressed with the service. The individual remembered me from a visit 6 weeks earlier (and I don’t go there often- maybe 6 times a year) and remembered a request I made about my food at...the time! Remarkable server! And the food is always good. The daily soups are very creative and novel and always tasty. The pandemic rules are handled appropriately. My two most recent visits for lunch, the place was humming (again appropriately)!More

Went to this location for a first time last week. It was awesome! Been to a moxies a couple times before just been a bit. Staff were all super friendly, our server was training and he was so fun, very professional! I had the blackened...chicken burger and damn that was good. My friend ate some pasta dish and said it was great too. Food took no time at all to come out (I’m used to restaurants taking half hour so this was a treat to be quick). Probably for sure gonna be coming here again real soon!More

We went to this establishment on a Saturday evening. With the current state of society due to COVID-19, the staff at Moxie's did everything right. In order to get a table, we had to make a reservation, which in our opinion was the right thing...to do during these times. Walk-ups were permitted but with no reservation, when you would be seated was dependant on the other customers. Once seated, our server, Eric - excellent server, great attitude, great banter and knowledgeable about the menu. Our menu choices were quite diverse as we were a mix of vegetarian and carnivore. If you like a little spice, try the blackened chicken burger. It was not some deep fried pretend chicken pattie, it was real chicken. My wife had the vegetarian tofu wrap. It came with iceberg lettuce instead of any type of bread/pita etc. (NOTE: my wife said it would have been better sith Boston Lettuce). The other members of at the table had a Mexican steak salad and a bacon cheese burger. I was informed that they to were delicious. (NOTE 2: the fries and all our food was hot when our meals were delivered). Although these seem like simple meals, don't be fooled; good is good. The wine choices were minimal but from what I saw on the drink menu they read well as they were familiar brands and types. Their personal draughts were quite tasty and I fully recommend them. Key points: Plenty of parking, great atmosphere, friendly staff, good food. This is not a Denny's so don't expect Denny prices. This is a well established restaurant with good staff and good food. SUMMARY: I/we highly recommend this Moxie's (Hunt Club & Riverside Dr @ the T&T Market shopping area)More

Hostess wasn't too friendly, maybe not the best way to greet customers. The rest of the experience was decent; food was tasty albeit a bit overpriced for what you get, service was good. I wouldn't go as far to call it pretentious, but it's a...decent option for a neighborhood restaurant.More

This was the worst meal I have had in ages-food was luke warm (fish tacos) and the ceasar salad had store bought croutons ... nothing to write home about. The environment was noisy so very difficult to talk. Very disappointing.More

Great place for anniversary dinner. Atmosphere is always classy, but noisy, difficult to enjoy a quiet romantic dinner. Had chicken (over cooked) & ribs (excellent), salads are tiny, more like a teaser, side potato dish was nice. Wife had sirloin steak which she said was...very good, cooked just right. Service was average for this restaurant, but still acceptable. With 2 mains, 2 drinks, one dessert w/tip $85.00. More variety in menu would be appreciated.More

Had dinner with some of my colleagues from work and was a bit hesitant as the first time we ate here was disappointing in the food aspect. But the second visit was much better aside from our server getting the drink and food orders messed...up twice. But the hospitality and food quality made up for his hiccups. We will definitely come back again as the location is convenient and the place is welcoming!More

Love this location, great service and the food is ok. We had the margarita pizza which wasn't exactly the way a true margarita pizza should be. Crust too thick and no basil leaves on the dollops of cheese. Fish tacos are ok but dont compete...with Milestones. Moxies does have a great ambiance, so Ill be back for sure to try other menu itemsMore
