Editorial Review of Moody's Pub

It's rare that a bar can draw massive crowds no matter the season, but that's just what Moody’s Pub, with its rockin' beer garden and toasty interior, manages to do. During warmer months, wind your way through the pitch-black interior of this Edgewater pub to the hidden garden out back. The two-tiered garden has ample seating for couples and crowds, privacy from the road, waterfalls, wall ivy and plenty of silver maple trees, making this a hands-down winner for summertime socializing. When the weather turns cold, move indoors for cozy booths, really low lights and a roaring fireplace—the perfect antidote to the winter blues.

Of course, it doesn't hurt that the menu at Moody's Pub, if a bit limited, is as noteworthy as the space. Expect double-fisted, half-pound burgers done right, plus sloppy joes and chicken sandwiches (but, really, do yourself a favor and order the burger). A platter-size salad makes an easy appetizer for the whole table, or you can throw cholesterol-caution to the wind and sink your teeth into a basket of crispy, greasy onion rings.

Beer choices aren't plentiful (Beck's, Michelob, Berghoff, Anchor Steam on tap), but cheap pitchers of sangria, a bevy of summer cocktails, half a dozen wines and a full bar more than make up for it.
