Bar Rescue is a Paramount Network show starring Jon Taffer, an American entrepreneur and TV personality. In the series, Jon visits small restaurant establishments and bars throughout the country and determines its operational and service weaknesses. Jon provides insight to his observations as well as feedback as to how the bar can make changes to become more profitable.

Garner, NC Restaurant Featured on TV

In March 2013, Spike TV’s Bar Rescue landed in Garner, N.C. to transform a failing Garner restaurant.

The result, MoonRunners Saloon, is a prohibition-era themed restaurant that serves great food, specialty drinks all within a welcoming atmosphere that plays off the one-of-a-kind concept created by celebrity experts.

  • Experience the original concept created by Bar Rescue host, author and industry expert Jon Taffer
  • Sample the specialty menu by celebrity chef Brian Duffy
  • Taste the unique moonshine cocktails made famous by TV-mixologist Russell Davis

Since then, Bar Rescue has featured Moonrunners Saloon two more times. All the credit for improving the bar goes to our amazing staff for all the work they continue to do to make MoonRunners a good time for all to enjoy!
