One of the two best restaurants in the area

You just can't go wrong here. The first greeting when you walk in the door is Ginger (and really the Hostess With The Mostess) who welcomes you with a great greeting and hug.

We had four different entrees and each was delicious. The staff is very warm and helpful, especially with special dietary needs.

We have eaten at Shame on the Moon quite often over the years but this was very disappointing. There were 6 of us and 5 of us were very dissatisfied. I had the liver which is one of my favorite dishes and it was awful. The others also left part of their dinners over. Very sad and will never return!

We have enjoyed each time we eat here. The food and service are excellent. We prefer the "garden or terrace" for a quieter area. Drinks are well mixed and served cold. Dinner includes soup or salad. Prix fix menu always good and plenty of choices. Servers and bus boys are on top of their tasks. reservations needed.

Reservations are hard to get. Need to do so a week in advance. But worth it. Have eaten there 6 times for special occasions or with family. Never have been disappointed

Shame on the Moon is a restaurant that has been around forever. I think of it as a special occasion place until I get there and realize that you could go there anytime. They have regulars that eat there weekly (daily??). They have one of the best bartenders in the valley - he makes a tasty and ample drink. The... More
