We ate there 2 nights while staying at the Fogcatcher Inn on Moonstone Beach and it was within walking distance, which made it very nice. The food was really good and they were good about allowing us to order one meal and one salad and split it up. We did not do the extra $4 cost for them to split... More

My wife and I had dinner here. She ordered the fish tacos and they were bland. The sauces were particularly unsavory. I ordered the grilled Salmon. I was expecting great seafood, sitting next to the ocean. However, it was flavorless. The rice tasted like it was out of a box. The clam chowder was strange. It tasted good, but it... More

This was such a great spot for lunch! The food was fantastic, as was the service and atmosphere. They offer bottled water only, which I found unusual. They charge 30 cents (their cost) for a water bottle due to water shortage? Not sure if that is customary in all of the area, but for the prices you pay I would... More

This was a good restaurant with a great patio overlooking the ocean. We had a wonderful waitress and they were very nice to our grandchildren, too.

I really enjoyed dining at this restaurant on the patio as the sun set. It was very romantic. The salmon was delicious.

Been here many times. This time the food was only average but it can be very good. Large terrace that looks right at the sea.

We enjoyed appetizers and drinks while watching the sunset. Heaters are available. The food is OK but expect to pay a bit more. That is to be expected because of the location. The calamari appetizer was good but the onion soup a bit salty. We enjoyed a salad as well.

The food was well-prepared, large portions, kinda bland and a very touristy vibe. Gorgeous setting across the street from Moonstone Beach. Pleasant, friendly and efficient service.

We pulled into this restaurant mainly because it seemed less busy than a few other restaurants in Moonstone Beach. What a surprise! We sat outside and enjoyed the gorgeous view of the ocean. The service was excellent and the food was prepared fairly quickly. We ordered the Smoked Salmon Omelette and the Moonstone Fish Fry Platter. My husband and I... More

This such a convenient place to eat if you are staying anywhere along Moonstone Beach-- we love being able to walk so we both can have drinks with our meals! There was a bit of a wait (even on a weekday in January) but not too bad. We chose to sit indoors,and were given a table by the from window,... More
