When I came here for my birthday dinner with 9 other people it was a disaster, the service was horrible! Every drink we ordered took 20 minutes to get. My friend ordered a cranberry vodka for her and I, and they forgot to put the alcohol in it. Our drinks were then taken back, dumped out, and were never replaced with new ones. The manager told us he would buy all of us a round of shots for my birthday, over an hour later we had asked our waitress about them multiple times, she had told us they were coming, and yet again we never received them, at ALL. The waitress was extremely rude with her eye rolls, facial expressions, and tone of voice because she was frustrated with the multiple mistakes she kept making and took it out on her customers, she was inconsiderate, the service was extremely slow. She also did not take ownership of her mistakes and kept blaming her co-workers. The manager also gave me a free drink and t- shirt, I ended up giving my free drink to my friend because the waitress never brought her the one she ordered in the first place. I actually left the t-shirt on the table because I was absolutely DISGUSTED and DISAPPOINTED with everything that had happened while we were there, moose country completely ruined my birthday dinner and I would never want to promote or represent them in anyway and I will never go there again. Not to mention they changed their menu, which I was not impressed by the new choice of food on there. And we also witnessed one of the male staff man handle an elderly woman out of the restaurant because she didn't want to leave right away after she was finished eating dinner with her friends. How rude and disrespectful that was of him to humiliate and embarrass her in front of the other customers and put his hands on her, it was completely uncalled for. It just goes to show how much they really appreciate and value their paying customers and representation of business.
DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU ARE A MINORITY – So, we went here with a couple friends and they ended up kicking out all of my black friends that I was with. The manager claimed the three guys were drinking outside when they went to smoke.
Definitely going to complain to the better business bureau.
Dear Neverout – Obviously you weren't at the Moose Country. I have been a long time patron and I have never heard of a dress code. Three regulars there at the bar are Latinos that come straight from work. They are not executives either. Just regular guys that do physical labor. Dressed in work clothes. The bartenders are very friendly and know all the regulars by name.
Great wings too! I have never seen anyone refused entry.
Discriminating – This was my first and last visit. I came to attend friend's birthday party. I arrived late and a friend was heading out. Within the first five minutes of being there, I witnessed how they allowed individuals with dirty tennis shoes and cargo shorts in but would not allow another individual in with nice boot-cut jeans and clean tennis shoes in because he was violating dress code with his shoes. The only difference between the two was race - one was white and the other Latino. They proceeded to allow others in with with tennis shoes who were white.
As a woman of color, I will not give this business my money. When we tried to calmly pull aside the manager to discuss why we felt this was wrong, he then proceeded to tell us that they weren't being racist and that if we felt that there was discrimination we could leave. We sat in the bar for a while to prove our point and witnessed several other attempts being turned away and allowing others in. They operate under white privilege.
Great salads! – Great food especially the salads. They have a lot of fun nights like birthday night and it's always a fun atmosphere!
Great New Menu – I was a little dissappointed they had taken my favorite off the menu, but I saw they added my ultimate favorite,
Cubano Sandwich to the menu...It was totally fantastic..
We had an order of wings as an appetizer and never had better...My friend ordered a steak sandwich that was so big he could not even eat it.. It was made with a sirloin strip and was it good... For dessert we had their ever famous Bread Pudding... It also was just delicious. I am telling some of my other friends to check it out, you should too.....

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME – We headed out to Moose Country for a bachelor party for a quick drink with 12 guys. We arrived to find out that bachelor parties are NOT allowed. They mentioned any group larger than 8 and all guys are not allowed. This is absolutely rediculous. I have never heard of such a rule. Meanwhile, they advertise bachelorette parties on their website. Pretty stupid and i guess they don't like business. Secondly, the so called "bouncers" were complete jerks. They were obviously on a pretty good power trip with their flashy ear pieces. While waiting in the lobby for half of our party to get out of the bar since they had already let 6 of us in, they asked 2 other guys if they were a part of the bachelor party. They replied "no", then the "bouncer" said "Good, then get in there and get F***** wasted." Pretty solid statement in my mind coming from a non-educated 25 year old. I hope they truly enjoy their minimum wage paying job to check Id's. Over all a horrible experience and don't even waste your time driving out to this bar in the middle of nowhere.
Probably a good thing they didn't let you in. Your kind of an a-hole. They don't let bachelor parties in because they tend to cause trouble. If its the parties first or second stop, they more than likely will let you in. If you seem to intoxicated from your previous stops, they probably won't. Better than a bunch of jackass's causing trouble. And 25 year old security, dude you look like your 12. Why don't you take your skinny ass downtown and stay there dips***. :)
BAD EXPERIENCE - BAD FOOD – Upon walking into the restaurant, the bouncers asked me to "straighten my hat". Apparently a slightly tilted hat is against their dress code (even though they don't have a dress code). They also told my friend that he had to wear his hoodie to cover up his white T-shirt over his long sleeve navy blue shirt underneath. Yet the atmosphere was extremely casual, and other patrons had white t-shirts. We wondered what the bouncers' real motivation was. The food was horrible - it was extremely bland, and the waiters were obnoxious. Save your money, go somewhere else.
