Yuppie, trendy and posh layout that is quite refreshing for a beer bar. Service is all about the local beer guy Matt, a hero. Great selection, with very cool and unusual bottles. Food is trendy and doesnít live up to the flowery descriptions, not bad just not as good as it should be. Pricing is on the high side,but appropriate for the place. I really enjoyed it and would happily recommend.

Meddlesome Moth is located on Oak Lawn not too far off the Tom Landry freeway. There is a parking lot behind the vine-covered brick building.

The inside is one large space, with the bar running along the left side, and table seating throughout. There is a patio in the rear too. The decor is dark wood on the walls and floor, and there are 3 large stained glass windows apparently reclaimed from a Hard Rock Cafe, featuring legends of rock ín roll. Behind the bar is a clean and uniform row of taps, with the names of the beers written on a board about them, and a large framed and illuminated picture of a moth.

The draught selection numbers around 40 with many Texan breweries like Community, Live Oak, Revolver, Lakewood, Peticolas, and Real Ale. Other craft breweries like Prairie, Deschutes and Ballast Point too. Samplers are available, both pre-set and pick your own. The bottled menu exceeds 100, again with many TX breweries like Ranger Creek and other domestic and imported craft beer.

Service for our group was very good. The server was very knowledgeable about the beer menu and attentive throughout our visit.

Food at Meddlesome Moth is eclectic, bordering on weird. The focus is on shared plates which is what we did. Deviled eggs, Duck Wings, Sweet Pea Guacamole and Bacon Lollipops were all tasty.

Overall I really enjoyed my visit here. Luckily we had a reservation and I can see where pretentiousness and hipsterism could creep in, but all in all this is definitely the type of place I would seek out on a visit to Dallas.

This many ratings and no one has commented on the fact that this place is totally showing up wrong on the map? - anyway - quasi-upscale yuppie tapas place - quirky decor, but bordering on "cozy" and "cramped" - very popular, so make sure you make a reservation - service was fairly attentive, but definitely had a hipper than thou attitude - nice draft list that was reasonably priced, but I would have liked more local options - as with most tapas, the prices were a little high, but portions were decent - most of what I had was quite good (especially the steak tartare), but there were one or two misses - I think I prefer Common Table, just because of the more relaxed vibe (despite their higher beer prices), but this is certainly on-par - another quality beer restaurant in Dallas.

An attempt at an upscale craft-beery restaurant. Loud. Not particularly comfortable. Trying to be very stylish. Food attempts to be very upscale. But most of it falls just a little short.... and at these prices, falling short is a big problem. Good beer list though.

Really cool spot that could have fit into any city. Only place that Iíve been in Texas that made me think this could survive and thrive in Chicago. The decor is awesome, high slanted ceilings and stain glass that makes you think of a church. Huge bar with lots of taps. More Texas focused here, with Jester King draft and bottles, only place in town with Live Oak. Had several bottles, Prairie stuff, even some bomb! hidden away even if they wonít give it to you. I wish I had eaten here over Common, every dish made my mouth water. Only had a brief staff but this is a must to come back to, and frankly the only spot in DFW thatís a must check out.

Stopped in on a Tuesday night, during the USMNT game, found the bar very busy and a private party occupying the left area.. managed to find a seat in the 9th minute, and was promptly served.. large amount of taps with good variety, though the sampler prices are way high, I ordered some nice pints had good service from the bar tender, no issue with noise. the stained glass windows in the dining room are a nice touch, nice upscale neighborhood with little to NO parking, I ended up parking 2 blocks away in an apartment complex as there was no street parking, most guests were dressed in ties FYI

Visited February 2012.

Fucken a, my whole rating was deleted because I clicked submit without putting a score in. Iíll re-write this later. Food is weird for the sake of weird. Not enjoyable, even after trying three different small plates. Trying too hard to be artsy. The beer list on the other hand was pretty good and sitting outside on the patio up against the wall was enjoyable, even with the flies. Prices were high, service was good, and the place is enjoyable all around.
