Recipient of numerous awards for culinary excellence, the restaurant is known as one of the finest dining establishments on America’s east coast serving fresh seafood by the waterway. It is a well-known fact that Blue Moon offers the finest waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale and is in the top tier of acclaimed restaurants within the entire South Florida region.

Blue Moon's elegant interior dining room is decorated in authentic Art Deco style with high ceilings, inlaid wood, carved accents and frosted art glass partitions featuring an underwater theme.

There's nothing quite as magical as enjoying an expertly crafted gourmet meal on the Blue Moon terrace where the boats pass by in graceful motion throughout the day and night.

Good food... Good atmosphere

A friend and I met here for cocktails and apps... Very easy to find.. It is right off the main road (commercial Blvd) so easy to find... Beautiful dining room... Nice big bar and a back porch seating area that overlooks the intercostal... The bartender makes a good dirty martini... And there is a... read more

We were looking for a nice restaurant to dine on our last evening in Fort Lauderdale and we wanted it to be special. Blue Moon was recommended to us and we couldn't be happier we dined there. The restaurant is right on the intercoastal waterway, a bit out of the touristy section of town; but, an easy drive. Our table... More

My husband and I recently went to Blue Moon Fish Co for their famed Sunday breakfast brunch. It was truly fabulous - great service and the food excellent. My only advice - go there really hungry!!

Great service, wonderful ambience from the terrace overlooking the intercoastal, great food, ... What else could you ask for. This is a modern restaurant with subdued but elegant decoration. At night, this restaurant would not be very suitable for young children. The parking requires a 3$ valet fee which on Commercial boulevard in that area is reasonable. We made an... More

We went for a Friday afternoon lunch. Beautiful setting. The Cerviche was made fresh and everyone loved it. It was marinated with just a little hint of hot… The Fritters were great, would have liked one or two more. I had the fish sandwich, enjoyed the sauce and roil was delicious. The Lobster roll was great and the pretzel style... More

At one time it was a great place to dine. My family and I feel it has changed and not for the better. We will no longer recommend to others.

Although it tried to be, the food was nothing special (especially for the price - $45 entree had better be tasty!). The yellowtail snapper was cooked very well but its accompanying boniato mash & veggies didn't have the sweet/salty flavors I'd been promised (boniato mash was bland & vegetables were steamed/julienned). Husband's sea bass was prepared nicely as well but... More

Drove an hour from west palm beach to enjoy brunch with my family we were practically the first to arrive and there was very little customers inside yet the greeting staff informed us that we would have to sit outside in the cold because all tables were reserved. The room was dam well empty. Im sick and tired of showing... More

Loved that it was so fresh, had a stone crab from Key West. Chef cracks it for you, much more dense than snow crab. Mahi Mahi was also fantastic. The intro bread basket with garlic butter is among the best I've had anywhere. 2 very attentive servers, an outstanding experience overall.
