Sorry to repeat myself, but I loved this place. Funky decor, lots of beer and genuinely creative shared plates. All the portion sizes were generous enough for 3 of us to share. Extensive menu bound to please anyone. And they do have non-shared plates as well. I cannot think of a single thing that we did not like or would... More

We went for the Real Ale brunch. The speaker Brad who owns real ale did a great job discussing the beers and his journey to owning Real Ale. The restaurant was way behind on everything. Beers, food service, the whole brunch felt unprepared. Food was great as always though.

The menu at Meddlesome Moth had me excited - interesting and inventive combinations of flavors. I was there for a group dinner so we were able to try a variety of dishes and most were underwhelming, especially the mussels - no flavor and served with stale bread - and the farro salad. The one exception was the cherry cobbler/pie -... More

Second time to go here. I had the Mothinator, it was very good. Loaded with pork, cole slaw, cheddar cheese and thousand island dressing on rye bread, yummy. They fries (frites) are awesome. Becca, our waitress was very helpful and attentive. I want to go for their brunch sometime. Will be back.

Recently took company there for dinner and all was good -- service, wine, beer, and food. We like the shared plate option. It's a little too noisy for our taste so we probably won't be back, but in general a good experience. It's just too difficult to have a conversation.

Dined at the bar on a Tuesday evening and was served by a efficient bartender. I ordered the shrimp and grits and thoroughly enjoyed the creamy grits and very well seasoned and cooked shrimp. Was a bowl of comfort food while on the road for work.

Very good food - a big step up from pub grub. The scallops and all shared plates are the way to go here. Entrees are decent, had better luck with the small shared plates
