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.

Blue Moon Fish Company is a fabulous dinner spot! The restaurant overlooks the water, and my husband and I sat outside on the dock, which made for a wonderful atmosphere. You must try the prosciutto wrapped brie for an appetizer- We are still talking about how great it was and even tried to recreate it at home! The seafood was... More

On May 13, 2015, we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a Nuptial Mass and a luncheon at Blue Moon Fish Company. The service was excellent, the food delicious, the view spectacular. We no longer live in the area but we made a good choice for our celebration. Thank you.

We use to LOVE going to Blue Moon Fish Company! My husband and I have been bragging about this restaurant for years up until just recently. We went back on New Years Eve and again in March 2015. Both times mentioned, were sadly disappointed by the slow service and more importantly... the famous black grouper was simply not of the... More

A fabulous restaurant in every way ... décor, staff, food, wine. We took a $20 cab ride from the beach, but it was totally worth it. Look forward to returning.

We've been there before and we highly recommended the food quality and water views, but this time we have to tell you about the best service ever. Mike was exceptional! He is a high quality waiter who dedicates time to the guests. He is experienced, professional and always eager to please the customer. Five Stars plus!

Well worth the trouble of going to, the raw bar is fresh with a good selection and the swordfish and sea bass were both excellent! Great location on the intercostal - pricey but worth it
