Nestled in a charming cluster of 1850s historical buildings once known as the Waterloo Compound, Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill offers playful takes on classic American home cooking in a friendly and relaxing setting. Spreading pecan trees shelter the limestone patio and veranda, and meandering walkways lead diners from the cozy Carriage House bar to the warm and lively main house dining room.
About the Menu at Moonshine GrillTexas natives Larry Perdido and Chuck Smith have gone back to their roots to recreate comfort food for modern folks. Childhood memories and grown-up pleasures are combined in appetizers such as Corn Dog Shrimp ($9.95), tender skewered shrimp enveloped in a smooth, golden batter with honey and blueberry mustard, and Beer Battered Asparagus ($7.95), juicy stalks bursting with lemon surrounded by a crisp, lacy crust. Lunch specials vary from a Chicken Fried Steak with chipotle cream gravy ($11.95), to the Pecan Crusted Catfish with Crawfish Tails and Brown Butter Sauce ($13.95). Dinner entrees include nicely seasoned market-fresh vegetables and your choice of side dish; Griddled Polenta with parmesan and fresh herbs and Baked Macaroni with pimento cheese and bacon gratin are just two of many options. The Broiled Rainbow Trout ($18.95) is stuffed with cornbread and sauced with a chili sage butter, and the Texas Flat Iron Steak ($20.95) gets a dollop of blue cheese butter and a port wine sauce. For dessert, try the house-baked Skillet Apple Pie ($9.95), which arrives bubbling in its own cast iron skillet, topped with melting maple ice cream. For something seductive, try the Peanut Butter Mousse Pie on an Oreo cookie crust ($6.95).Moonshine dining blends down home with upscale—touches like ice water served in glass mason jars and a complimentary tin of spicy popcorn provide a welcoming ambiance for diners while they choose from a varied wine list with over two dozen wines by the glass.
