1137 Morrison Dr. (Downtown)
Lunch, Dinner, & Sun. Brunch
Specialty deli sandwiches made with house-roasted meats, and the legendary Duck Club.
It’s safe to assume that by now, almost everyone in town has heard about the amazing Duck Club at the Tattooed Moose. Fair enough. But don’t overlook the other sandwiches on this Morrison Drive spot’s menu. The Lucky #1 Sub piles barbecue braised pork belly with kimchi, tomatoes, cucumbers, crispy onions, cilantro, and wasabi mayo. The Lowcountry Cuban and The Reuben are also local favorites. Sunday brunch is a prime opportunity to look beyond the Duck Club and order the Monte Cristo or Mike’s Famous Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast, stuffed into Hawaiian bread and served with a side of bacon. The after-work crowd can commiserate over $2 cans of beer, $6 pitchers, and 50-cent buffalo wings. —Angela Hanyak Dish (Winter 2014)
hamburgler says... Duck Fries!!! ★★★★★
ryanh says... Had brunch on Sunday with my wife and young son, our first visit to the Tattooed Moose. I got the Duck Club, which I used to get at Marie LaVeau's (RIP), and it was excellent. Just like I remembered. My wife had Mike's Garbage Plate which was both ridiculous and delicious. Good beer selection, good music. They are doing a great job there, we will be back soon. ★★★★★
Colin Kerr says... This one of the better joints in town. They have a handful of very well prepared and creative gourmet sandwiches. Duck fat fries are pretty hit and miss, unfortunately, but I don't mind rolling the dice on them. Good beer selection as well. ★★★★★
Compared to the relatively dusty Kitty's Fine Foods, things inside the new Tattooed Moose were a little too neat and cute when the joint opened last winter. It didn't take long to break the place in, though. In addition to the taxidermy pieces and vintage beer signs along the walls, patrons have added their own touch of ink. Mostly anonymous magic marker graffiti covers every counter space and table top. Some of the scribblings are innocent enough — little drawings and "so-and-so was here" messages. Some are cool tags for local bands, like Jason and the Juggernauts or the Royal Tinfoil. Others are downright vulgar, with varying degrees of humor. You might catch a glimpse of a Sharpie-drawn cock and balls with "McElhenney" written along the shaft, a horse making the simple demand of "Eat me," a depiction of Dracula blurting out, "I vant to suck your cock," or "Walker touches boys." And those are some of the least offensive examples.
