It is a trip

Ratings are relative. There are two bars in town. The other is the Wagon Wheel. We've been there but always end up at the Blue Moon. Drinks are cheap and the people watching can be very interesting.

Walked in and felt like we were intruding about 8 pm on a Monday night. Gave up when no one acknowledged our presence and we left. It is dirty, smoky and has locals that aren't at all friendly. There are better choices in Lava and even the grocery store has friendlier service and a reasonable selection of liquor.

This is your basic grungy bar. We're ok with that. But it seemed smoky, more than last time we were there. Burgers were fresh and yummy greasy. Mine was cheap, $7.00. And hubby's two dollars more with bacon. Waitress very nice, and it looked like she poured a stiff drink! We only had beer.

Stiff drinks, great comfort food and friendly conversation. If you want to play some pool and watch some sports, this is the place.

Only had a drink here. It was open quite late and was very busy as it was Independance Day. It was reasonably priced and had a varied drinks menu.

A quaint little bar but with a wide selection of drinks and good food. One of our party ordered an unusual drink and the barkeep made it with no problem.

From the moment my friends and I walked in to this bar we were faced with a horrible attitude from the bartender. The old guy treated my friends and I like he didn't want us in the bar after asking us for our ID's so we immediately walked out! Not impressed at all. Had a way better experience at the... More

One year ago we came over when we got married. It was as awesome. Today sucked. The bartender was rude and needed an attitude adjustment. She had long blonde hair and hardly acknowledged us. Tried to talk to her but she just walked off. Sorry but will not recommend the blue moon to anyone

We had so much fun at this little bar! The people were friendly, and drinks were reasonably priced. We played a few games of pool, had a bit too much to drink and ate the best cheeseburger ever (possibly because we were tipsy lol). They had a live band come in around 10, but we stumbled back to our hotel... More
