Tattooed Moose Johns Island opens Aug. 25

Return of the mac 'n' cheese

Johns Island is about to get a little cooler. Owners Jen Kulick, Mike Kulick, and Jason Houser have announced that on Tues. Aug. 25 the second Tattooed Moose will open at 3328 Maybank Hwy. The island iteration promises all our Moose favorites — Sunday brunch from 11:30 a.m.- 3 p.m., to-go orders, a bar with plenty of craft brews, live music every Thursday night — with a few new additions. 

Mac ‘n’ cheese has been added to the sides menu in addition to a kids menu featuring cheeseburgers, grilled cheese, and corn dogs. Plus, work has just begun on the Meathouse Butcher Shop, a building next door to the new Tattooed Moose. Run by Houser, the shop will specialize in charcuterie and fresh-cut meats and will be open by the end of the year. 

To get the new venue started, musician Lindsay Holler will kick-off the weekly music on Sept. 3.

Tattooed Moose Johns Island will be open 11:30 a.m.-2 a.m. daily, and its kitchen will be open until 1:00 a.m. daily. Happy Hour will be Mon.-Sat. from 4 p.m.-7 p.m.
