“Beer and Fine Food - fun concept”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Every time I walk into a brew pub I wonder how much food comes from the fryer and microwave as opposed to being chef driven cuisine. That clearly wasn’t the case here – and of course Meddlesome Moth is not a traditional brew pub, even if the menu does suggest specialty beer pairings with the food. The prosciutto and pear was delightful as was the pork belly; however dish that stood out most was the seasonal chard. The portion size for shared plates is large so don’t order too many. The atmosphere is lively and it was fun to see the old window’s from the Hard Rock come back to life. This struck us as the perfect place for a first date – lively and fun but still romantic.

“Just a perfect dining and drinking experience with friends”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

As a tip I would say, come hungry, come thirsty and come adventurous. Your palate and knowledge will be extended the minute you start talking with your waiter about the food or the beer. An extensive selection of world brews awaits you, and custom mixed cocktails - tell your server what you like and they will direct you to something new to try. The food is fit for sharing a la Tapas style, but with larger portions. Branch out into sweatbreads, bangers and mash made from bison sausage, the pie of the day (when I was there pulled pork collared greens and black eyed peas pie) and many other great dishes. A great restaurant and bar and a great experience overall - bring friends and stay for a long time.

“Fantastic Pub Fare”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

I had a short window of opportunity to have dinner with a client and it had to be near the Hilton Anatole. This was the only nearby restaurant with good reviews.

The Moth was busy, but we were seated right away. The service was fast and friendly and we ordered our meals. The ambiance was very good, if not just a little loud due to the crowd.

The hummus and pita bread was very good; the hummus was spicier than I am used to, but not overbearing. The blue crab fritters were amazing, cooked perfectly. I have the Steak Frites and have to say that it was the best steak that I have had in a long tie. Living in Texas, that is saying something.

I would highly recommend the Meddlesome Moth.

“A neighborhood bar with style that happens to serve food created by hippies”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Great vibe and energy in the room, excellent beer selection and bar experience. Service can be hit or miss and the food is truly for an acquired taste.

“Wow! Amazing beer selection, great bar and terrific food”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

MM has about 45 beers on tap, and they are all amazing. They even have one or two cask conditioned ales, which is a wonderful thing by itself. I don't often give 5 stars to a restaurant, but it's just the quirky original menu, the really cool bar, and the beer selection that puts MM above the stack. Tip: You don't have to use their valet parking which is adjacent to the restaurant if you want to walk about 1 city block to their own self-park lot. I would recommend something to eat but it all looked good coming out of the kitchen. This is must-go when you're in this part of Dallas.
