Our last stop for our year of shoreline restaurant features was Moxie! The rustic restaurant with modern twists was the perfect way to end our year.
Located in Madison, Connecticut, the restaurant is in a welcoming building. Walking into the bar, the rustic wood, exposed beams, and vintage decor made us feel even cozier. With lights and decorations set up for the Holiday season, we felt like it was a perfect spot to settle in for some bar bites with friends.
Moxie focuses on taking traditional dishes and adding a modern day twist with high-end seasonal ingredients. Comfort food is featured on the menu, working perfectly with the decor to make you feel at ease.
Moxie offers plenty of options in its food menus. The dinner menu provides five sections: Starters, For the Table, Plates, Small Plates, and Sides. This allows you to mix and match options, whether you are looking for a taste of everything or a full dinner to yourself. In addition to the dinner menu, Moxie has a Lunch Menu with sandwiches and burgers, a Weekend 3-5 Menu for those in between hours, a Kids Menu, Dessert Menu, and Bar Snacks.
We sat down for some Bar Snacks and cocktails. The snacks were enough to share, and each dish was mouthwatering. Chicken wings were crisped to perfection with a chili-garlic buffalo sauce and cucumber ranch dressing. The buffalo cauliflower had just the right crunch due to a cornmeal-crust. Hand-cut fries with malt vinegar powder are a favorite among customers. We also enjoyed fried Brussel sprouts with bacon and dried cranberries for a sweet and savory mix.
Craft Cocktails, Local Beer, and Happy Hour
Moxie doesn’t just take its food seriously. You can come here for expertly crafted cocktails and a large selection of craft and local beer. Fill up a growler of draft beer to bring home – a big perk for beer lovers. And if you want to show the kitchen some love, you can buy them a 6-pack for $12!
Happy hour takes place five days a week and features special prices on bar snacks and beer and wine. Tuesday through Friday Happy Hour takes place from 4:00-6:00 pm, and on Friday and Saturday enjoy deals from 9:00-11:00 pm.
With quality ingredients, a love of good food and drink, and a cozy atmosphere, it’s no wonder Moxie is one of the top restaurants in Connecticut. They were recently featured on Restaurant Road Trip for their most popular dishes.
