Our Story

About us

Started in September 2017 with the aim of providing a comfortable and fun atmosphere where prices are reasonable and y’all feel welcome. Muskets and Moonshine is our latest venue in a long heritage of hospitality we have over the past 30 or so years, we have operated country pubs, suburban pubs and central city pubs. So we really know what hospitality is all about!

What we do

Southern USA inspired food, cocktails, craft beer and of course MOONSHINE! We can’t think of anything better than eating real Southern BBQ cooked the authentic way over wood smoke for hours on end! or try our colorful Jambalaya or seafood gumbo. You won’t find another place like this in Queenstown!

Our mission

To become every guests favorite restaurant that energizes everyone with a enthusiastic welcome, exceptional service, awesome food and an unforgettable time


We take sustainability seriously, we know we can always do better so we re look at all our systems constantly to see where we can improve and reduce our impact, y’all see our reusable straws to reduce plastic waste, bamboo toilet paper, cloth napkins and many other small bits adding up to a massive reduction on our effect on the environment.
