Great addition to our town

As a local my family/ friends and I love having this restaurant in town, it adds something different to our town. The service is always the best part of the experience. They offer a small unique menu and daily specials. During the winter they could do more to keep the locals coming in, we often... read more

This Bistro is a great find south the main drag on James Street. Local shop owner recommended & we were not disappointed. We opted to eat on the roof top...awesome! We had sushi (Sexy Roll) that was fresh and we split the Swine & Bull sampler. The ribs, sausage and pulled pork were out of this world (watched them prep... More

After an hour and a half, entree arrived cold, not cooked through, and the other entree was burned. This the second time we have had issues with extreme slowness. Other issues have included, over-sized serving dishes and some rude wait staff. Will not give them another chance. We shouldn't have this time. The manager needs to take control, rather than...

We heard from a few different folks to hit up the Blu Moon for dinner, and they were absolutely correct. I had the St. Louis Style ribs and they were some of the best ribs I have ever tasted. The house salad was very original and a must try as well.

Ludington is a wonderful town, but it's not a snob's foodie place. However, Blu Moon has nicely filled the foodie/snob void for us. Offering fresh oysters on the half-shell, some wonderful sushi and fusion cuisine, along with a number of appetizing small plates and entrees, my wife and I were nervous that it wouldn't be ready for prime time. We... More

Fantastic little restaurant with fresh food. Limited main menu but a variety of different types of food to choose from. Extensive sushi menu with everything made fresh when you order. I have never had sushi before, don't care for the taste of fish and don't like anything spicy. (We ate here because it was the only place in town with... More

Great looking place but over priced and food is just average, sushi is very good but very small! If you don't mind paying top dollar and not getting top food this place is for you

My husband & I go here frequently, awesome sushi, everything's fresh and delicious. The best place in Ludington. They also have a nice variety of drinks from saki to ginger margaritas. A nice place to have a romantic date night.

We frequent the Moon and Over the Moon during the summer as much as our schedule allows. Chef Jason does a great job with the menu and the service is always top notch.

Had shrimp and grits...love, love, loved it. So out of the ordinary. The whole menu is out of the ordinary and full of flavor! Best food we've had in a long time. Thank you Ludington Pier House for the referral! Planning our summer trip now and will be back!
