I have been here several times and it is a great little venue. It's a very laid back atmosphere and the location has a fantastic view (especially at sundown). I love the fact you can bring your own food and drinks, too! I look forward to seeing many more shows here.

I went to this venue twice while I was in town and enjoyed the music on both occasions. The owners we very polite and helpful and it had a very nice atmosphere, you get close to the performers. If I was staying longer I go again.

We really enjoyed our visit to this venue. The atmosphere is casual, warm, intimate and romantic. The music that night (Mike June and Jessie Keith) was my favorite kind: songs from the hearts, hands and voices of the ones who wrote them. So was the audience- there to listen and enjoy original music. MOTM is in a plaza right across... More

Moonlight specializes in showcasing singer-songwriters. This is a listening room, and you are reminded to minimize your conversation while the performers are playing. Prices are very reasonable, but no food or drinks (other than free coffee) are served -- you are, however, quite welcome to bring your own, and people bring just about anything. The music is the main draw,... More

If you enjoy listening to singer/songwriters in a really great listening room, this is the place to go. The owner does a terrific job offering excellent singer/songwriter talent on a regular basis. The room is hospitable; the acoustics and ambiance are great. Guests can bring their own beverages and snacks. Complementary coffee is available. This is a very unique venue... More

This placed is designed solely for listening to good music. the prices are very reasonable, $10 or $12 depending on the evening, about the cost of a movie ticket. Bring food and beverage if you wish, otherwise help yourself to the coffee. We were visiting from out-of-town and discovered it on Trip Advisor!

For the second year in a row we have made it a point to attend this concert at Moonlight on the Mountain. The place was packed! Standing room only. Cover was only $15 per person and the band (the fabulous Beatlads) played for 3 hours!!! At 10 pm (Bermuda New Years) we celebrated and had plenty of time to get... More

The focus is all on the music here -- nothing like a rowdy bar or a cavernous auditorium -- and the audience is there to hear and appreciate the musicians. The artists featured here have something to say, and it's a delight for the ear in this acoustically natural setting, with earthy, heart-friendly repertoire. It's great to discover a music... More

Keith, the owner, has been a done an amazing job creating a beautiful, intimate, music room to truly enjoy the musician as an artist. Unlike the bar scene, it is respectful of all attendees and the musician. I have been numerous times and have a terrific time each time, bringing our own beverages and snacks. And it's always an affordable... More

Moonlight on the Mountain is a great place to go to enjoy live music. Unlike most bars, this is a quiet place where the music can be enjoyed without the roudy atmosphere. The people there are nice and the musicians who play there are the best around and truly appreciate their listening audience.
