    I haven’t been to Meddlesome Moth in about 8 or 9 years. I actually thought the food was even better this time than before. Our server was very attentive and I would definitely go back!

    Beautiful atmosphere! Brussel sprout salad, one piece of fennel very little flavor in the salad. No cocktail sauce? couldn't throw together some horseradish and ketchup for a pre teen? shrimp and grits, cauliflower mash excellent. Best burger our 9 year old grandson has ever eaten! And he eats a lot of burgers!

    My 9 yr old son and I had a special SunDATE brunch after church and so glad we picked Meddlesome Moth. Everything was superb especially the service from our server Lance. The Mother and Child reunion and Buttermilk Waffles was amazing. Will definitely be back.

    Great family meal. We had combination of appetizers and a few beer flight. The Dr Pepper Ribs and the pork tacos board were our favorites. We also had grilled avocado, moth balls, blue cheese chips , seared ahi tuna and grass fed burger. It was all very good

    The food and service was amazing! We loved everything except for the bone marrow and collards & cornbread (the greens & bread was so bad, we had to send it back). Highly recommend: Dr. Pepper ribs, duck wings & the crispy pork belly! The Purple People Drinker & Pinky and the Grain cocktails are delicious. Jeremiah was our waiter and he was awesome - well versed on the menu and entertaining as hell!

    I wish we'd come here more often. So good. Great people work here. This Sunday trip service was a little slow, but it was busy brunch time. Good Old Fashioned. Smooth. Will drink again. Was fun watching the kitchen crank out the food. Good burger--could use a tad more pimento cheese sauce, a more solid lettuce, but other than that, really solid. Interesting---no fries come with the burger, rather, breakfast potatoes. Odd. But, again, VERY good potatoes. Two in the party got the fried chicken biscuit sandwich, one of whom is from Alabama and pronounced the biscuit one of the best she's had. THAT is a compliment! Cheers to the kitchen staff who worked their fannies off. Same with bar staff.

    Went for out 1st Wedding Anniversary as this was the place we had our first date. Had an early (6pm) reservation on a Sunday (thought it would be a bit crowded but wasn't even close; No more than 5 other patrons were there the whole 1 1/2 that we were). Food was good as usual though, IMO, a little pricey for what you get. They are more of a American tapas kind of place with only about 5 "entree" size options. Server was attentive and very knowledgeable. Made great suggestions especially on the beer front. Noticed that I was drinking stouts and suggested a rare to America stout that they only had 2 bottles of left. Was outstanding. Still one of my fav placed in Dallas even though the food options were not that vast.

    Food was wonderful as it always is but have to say the most disappointing part of the experience was being charged $10 for the martini, then charged $2 more for “martini,” .50 for it being “dirty”and $1.00 for the olives. Might go over better if they just charged the fee straight away or let you know there will be an up charge. Kind of has me wondering what I would’ve just received just by paying the $10.?!? This is definitely a first. Otherwise, everything was as it has been in prior visits which was great.

    When we were first seated the wait staff made a big deal of a team of 2. As soon as we’d ordered they disappeared- slow on utensils for shared plates slow/no attempt to refill drinks and didn’t check back on us. Noise level was uncomfortable and made it difficult to hear each other. Food was delicious but would not recommend.

    Service was really good, this time. I’ve gone before and the service was horrible, so I had a drink and left. This time around, I tried food and it was bland. Drinks are decent but overpriced for the quality. I won’t be going back.

    not bowled over. curry chicken salad was fine but service was slow despite a sparcely populated dining room. We wished we had asked for a table outside since the music was too loud for a dining room with nothing to absorb the sound. With tile floors/glass wall and an open kitchen, it really needs something to soak up the sound.
