Moxie's began as a small deli and diner in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1986, before transforming itself into an upscale premium casual dining restaurant and lounge in 2004. Following recent economic and development booms, Moxie's has begun opening new locations rapidly across Canada with a focus on globally inspired comfort food. Their niche is providing clients with an upscale experience compared to their competition, with even their bathrooms being luxurious. The menu focuses on house-made ingredients with a global inspiration. Their direct competition would be other premium casual chains such as Earls (restaurant chain) and Cactus Club Cafe. Northland Properties Group owns Moxie's Grill and Bar, as well as Chop Steakhouse & Bar, Shark Club Bar & Grill, Rockford Wok, Bar One Urban Lounge and Denny's Restaurants (franchises).

Moxie’s restaurants feature dining rooms and lounges that are open seven days a week. Moxie's has daily drink specials, and patios across the country open throughout the summer.

In December 2006 Moxie's expanded its brand to include CHOP Steakhouse & Bar and opened the first location in Edmonton, Alberta. CHOP has since expanded and has locations in Edmonton, Kelowna, Richmond, Winnipeg, and Calgary.
