Frequently Asked Questions

Moxie’s is a Premium Casual restaurant therefore the majority of our seating is open for walk-in guests on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, we realize that our guests have busy lives and that a wait list is not always ideal.

Reservations are available on a limited basis and available reservation times will vary from location to location. Whether a restaurant can accept your reservation will depend on many factors including the size of your party, preferred date and time, etc. Many locations will not be able to accept reservations during their busiest periods or surrounding special events.

We recommend calling your local Moxie’s directly and speaking with a manager for more information on available reservations at your preferred location.

Absolutely! At Moxie’s we pride ourselves on our allergy awareness and guest protection procedures.

We have a Common Allergen Guide for mild allergies or intolerances to assist you in making menu selections.  However, items listed on this guide may contain small amounts of the listed allergen.  Therefore this guide is not to be used for severe allergies.  We strongly recommend that you make your server aware of any severe allergies prior to ordering. (Common Allergen Guide)

We take food allergies and sensitivities very seriously and require that our Managers check with guests each time a severe allergy is brought to the attention of our servers. There are rigid protocols in place and every Manager and Chef have internal guidelines for making safe menu suggestions depending on the specific concern.

Of course! Celiac’s disease and food being prepared gluten free is one of the most common dietary concerns that our guests approach us with. Please make your server aware if you have a gluten intolerance or severe allergy to gluten. Please also reference our Common Allergen Guide for additional information.

Yes, all locations offer a complimentary dessert for guests celebrating their birthdays with us.  Please let your server know if one of your party is celebrating a birthday.

Our primary criteria is career experience! All franchise applicants must have extensive experience as the General Manager or owner/operator of a full service, sit down restaurant similar to a Moxie's (premium casual, high volume, dining room & lounge). New franchisees must be the primary operator of their Moxie’s location, so career experience is critical.
No franchise applicant may have other business commitments within our industry. We expect 100% commitment to our brand.

We are no longer accepting new franchisees for locations in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or rural Ontario.

Please note that all new locations are first offered to our current franchisees to help them to expand their businesses, then secondly to our bank of internal applicants prepared to become franchisees. Any applicant from an external source, who we find to meet all of our criteria, can expect an extensive waiting period before a new location becomes available.

We recommend upscale casual attire, but we do not have a formal dress code. At Moxie’s, you will find that we cater to many different demographics of guests. Likewise, you will find many different styles of apparel. Everything from jeans, to suits and ties and even evening wear on guests joining us for a date night or special occasion. 

Twice per year we do a comprehensive review of our menu and update it based on numerous factors including guest feedback, product availability and great new item additions.  Items that are no longer popular with our guests are removed and replaced with new creations or we will keep an item on the menu but update the recipe to improve its popularity.

Occasionally, we also encounter supply issues in our industry which force us to change a recipe or menu item due to factors beyond our control. In these situations, we try very hard to make as few changes as possible to not affect our guests.

Unfortunately, we do not disclose our recipes since they are such a core aspect of our business. All recipes are kept in archive for potential use in future menus or features.
