My wife and I go there for the steak dinner, which is always excellent. We also love the cheese and broccoli soup. The service is very friendly. It's our favorite place to have a special meal. It would be perfect if they offered seafood (crab and lobster) but you can't have everything. I recommend this restaurant highly and often take family there for special occasions.

My husband and I took my mom and dad for lunch. The restaurant was spotless, the service was 10/10. I wasn’t a huge fan of the fish tacos, but the side of fries was HUGE and delicious. My mom and dad loved their burgers and my husband loved the steak. Can’t wait to go back to do happy hour!

We were a party of 8 and it was not a good experience at all. The wait for drinks was at least 20 min. The wait for appies was even longer. One steak sandwich was requested well done, arrived rare. The waitress never returned to our table after having someone else drop off the food. We saw no one ... needed extra napkins, no one to ask, needed salt, no one to ask ... everyone was finished the meal before we were able to track down someone to assist in the issues we were having. We asked for extra mushrooms on a steak sandwich instead of onions ... there were 4 little pieces of mushroom, thats it!

This was a staff dinner and we were extremely disappointed. I am not sure we will return to any Moxie location, it certainly left a bad taste in our mouth. The 2 meals were comped, thank you but frankly when I have a staff member that worked his butt off all day at a trade show and I want to reward them with a nice meal and he ends up with no meal at the end how can I justify coming in again. We are in Abbotsford twice every year for this trade show and need a dependable location to dine on the Friday and Sat evening.

We had made a reservation for a group of 10 on Wednesday April 17 (traveling from Kamloops) evening at 5:00 for a concert at 7:30. Long story short, we left the restaurant with paying for our drinks only. Our server did the best she could and we tipped her directly, but it was unacceptable that after an hour of waiting for food we were notified that two of the salads ordered were not available, why wait an hour to tell us?! Other things were ordered and another hour went by and no food! It was time for us to leave and three of our group hadn’t even gotten any food after two hours! The manager finally came over at that point, the first time we even saw her. The whole night was mismanaged and left us all in disbelief. Terrible way to operate.

The hostess greeted us with a big smile. She was very personable and had a nice sense of humour. She seated us at a nice window seat. The waitress was equally friendly, she took our order promptly and accommodated any changes to the menu without hesitation. The food was exceptional....we had chicken tacos, calamari and seafood linguini. Delicious. All other staff members were very professional.

Made our reservation for 8 people at 7:00PM. Did not get seated until 7:25PM. We ordered a round of drinks right away and waited 15 minutes for the drinks to come, which isn’t terrible as there were 8 drinks to be made. We ordered appetizers and meals at the same time. The appetizers had come at 8:40PM and all the appetizers were cold. There was no cutlery, when we had asked the server brought a box of knives out and said all their forks were dirty so it will be a little bit of a wait. We then had to ask her if we would be able to order more drinks. A few minutes after our appetizers were served, one of the meals were brought out. We sent it back and asked if they could keep it warm until the rest of the parties meals were ready. At 9:15 our meals finally came out. 2 of the meals were cold, the one that had earlier come out as well as another chicken dish. We had sent them back asking if they could be heated up. 20 minutes after everyone else had finished their meals, the remaining meal had come out. In this time, our table had asked to speak to a manager to understand why the service was poor. There was only excuses and no help. We asked for the bills and there was no compensation for our 3 hour dinner. The manager had then told us a story of his bad experience at another restaurant when we were paying our bills. He had a cold steak so the restaurant had taken care of him and his partners entire bill. That had just topped the cake of what a terrible experience this was.

Really good food! The desert was amazing! Unfortunately the service was extremely slow and even when we told our waitress we were in a rush to leave she took more then 20 minutes to bring us our bill and we had to ask multiple times for the machine to pay.

Convenient location. Food was good, Ambience ok,
and you could have a conversation without shouting. Housekeeping needed though. Every time we have been here, the booth seats have been dirty with food or food on the floor. Friendly and attentive servers.

No follow up to see how the meal was. My friend had finished her entire meal and I had to leave the table to find a manager to correct my meal which was very poor. They did correct the matter but it did take a lot of time. I left with a gift voucher to return.

Another visit to a busy venue, service a bit slower due to a large crowd but all went well for a good dinner. My order wasn’t 100% correct as ordered (got small roasted potatoe instead of ordered stuffed potatoe) but that was fine and did not send it back for correction.

Would still come here again for good variety menu and usually good service

Went for a birthday lunch, we originally chose the wrong table, and when we asked to change it, they were very accommodating, no problem. We didn’t have to wait long for our food, which was excellent, no complaints!.....would go again definitely.

We wanted steak unfortunately The Keg, S&L and Cactus Club had hour plus waits Moxies had no wait....that should have been the red flag for me.it had been years since I had been to this Moxies. The service was poor!! A manager took our order because no one came over. My wife told him she had Gluten allergies. She ordered the dry ribs (normally they are clean at other restaurants) within an hour her ears were ringing and congested and was asleep shortly after. Fortunately she is not anaphylactic BUT BEWARE. The steak was cooked perfect just crappy cut of meat for both. The manager came by right after the food was dropped off then we never saw anyone till I finally flagged over someone to get our bill. I expected with their sister restaurant being Chop Steakhouse their steak would be good....big fail!!!!

Sadly, I left there hungry. Not to say that there was not enough food. Cause there was.
I left hungry cause my boys enjoyed their meals so much and they were asking to try some of mine. I should of said no, because after one bite of my burger from my one son, he wanted more and ended up eating over a quarter of my meal.

WE had a nice quiet corner were thoroughly enjoying our conversation and anticipating good food as per usual. However it took over an hour to get our food. Unfortunately the kitchen staff couldn’t keep up. It would have been nice to have been offered free drinks while we waited:/
Management was kind and offered us a voucher.
