The last two times I ordered a hamburger they came out raw, not just pink, but red, even though I ordered med well. My friend ordered well done and it was very pink.

Not a far drive from Beaufort, and with lots to do while you are in Port Royal, a stop here at Moon Doggies is a must. The Beef on Weck is the best I've ever eaten, and my husband loves the special of the day or crab cakes. the interior is full of murals and charts on the walls--very comfortable... More

Enjoyed my blackened mahi-mahi sandwich . The fish was cooked perfectly and not overly peppery. The sweet potato waffle fries were quite tasty with a little crunch. The fried pickles were disappointing after all the buildup. Too thinly sliced for my liking with not enough crunch. My friend raved about how tasty her cold slaw was. I would definitely eat... More

This was a small restaurant located in a plantation style home. This is why we were drawn to it. Everyone thought the food was average except one person. Their fish was served raw inside. The bread was not brought to the table until we were almost finished.

Me and my husband went to Moondoggies as first timers. We were greeted at the door by a young and chipper female! We had informed her we had tried to come the week prior but it was closed. She informed us that they did new renovations and gave the place a facelift! As I could smell fresh paint I was... More

They have the best filet/crab cake meal I've had in a very long time. Great service. Coconut shrimp is amazing as well. Best and favorite restaurant in the beaufort area. Can't say enough

I understand why everyone loves this place. It has the best steaks in Beaufort hands down! Cool old house and the best fried pickles.

Went with family for burger night. They were out of burgers! Had the blackened flounder instead and it was great! The fried pickles are a favorite. Our server, whose name I can't recall, was funny, attentive and entertaining! Go, have fun, food is good, not expensive.

Moondoggies is our late lunch stop of choice after kayaking with friends down the Beaufort River to Port Royal. Although it's not on the water, it's just a short walk from our put-out point at the Sands. Start off with their fried pickle chips (the best I've ever had) and then some fried oysters and a cold beer. (I'm sure... More
