The Moon Cricket Grille is a casual restaurant with a huge beer selection. By being located in a historic building on Plant Street in Winter Garden, Florida, the Moon Cricket Grille has a distinct “tavern-like” feel that locals love. The building was built back in 1912 and was originally a grocery store. One of the main features of the old building is the roof skylight located above the bar. If you are riding along the West Orange Trail you will pass right in front of the Moon Cricket Grille, making it a great place to stop for a break during your ride. There is space available in front of the restaurant for bicycle parking near the patio seating.
Their menu includes everything from burgers and wraps to salad and seafood. Local favorites include their fried green tomatoes and "Bam Bam Shrimp." In addition to the food, you will find a selection of over 99 beers. If you are truly dedicated, you can get a card to keep track of the beers you have tried. Once you have had 99 beers in a year you get your name on the wall.
The beer selection is so extensive, in fact, that the Moon Cricket Grille won the “Best Beer Selections” by Orlando Magazine in 2010 and 2011. Moon Cricket Grille is open for lunch and dinner. Also, on select nights, you will be able to enjoy live music.
