Came here for lunch today with a friend. I had the Calabash Platter with Popcorn Shrimp and it was very good. I have actually traveled to Calabash just to eat there and this was almost as good.

If you want a great date night place that isn't upscale but super fun- check out Full Moon Oyster Bar! Everyone sits at the bar! Satellite Radio plays 90's Rock and Alternative and you are brought succulent seafood or chicken dishes from the kitchen. I always enjoy the fresh oysters or salmon!

I had drinks and dinner here with a friend who is a regular and had a very good experience. The entire restaurant is a big winding bar, which was perfect for our outing. The food was very good with an emphasis (of course) on seafood. Contrary to the name, Oysters weren't the feature, although one type was available. The atmosphere... More

If you are in the mood for shellfish, shrimp anyway you like it, muscles, clams and oysters, this is the place! Only five minutes from Hanes mall and western Winston-Salem. This is nothing fancy. One giant wraparound bar where everyone sits. If you like shellfish 100 different ways and New Orleans style dishes like jambalaya, there is no better place... More

Took my family on friday night early, ordered the surf and turf the steak was very well prepared and delicious, the lobster on the other hand was like rubber and over cooked to the point where you could not get it out of the shell. Our server was really great, she sent it back but the chef just took a... More

except for the wait (it's very popular), once seated the food is great and so is the atmosphere. Tuesday is "all you can eat crab legs". they are awesome, so get there early. not a lot of standing room

Love the feel of this place - and the oysters, of course. Also a big fan of the gator pie appetizer. Good for fun or casual business.

Good food and atmosphere at Full Moon. We go as often as we can and it is always great. Of course you gotta have oysters. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Great ambience and fantastic food specializing in seafood. We go about once weekly and really enjoy the meal, cold beer, and really good service. Sometimes there is a short wait, but for us we've always been lucky enough to never have to wait. All seating is around an expansive bar. My favorites are grilled steamed shrimp, seafood mornay, and oysters... More

I have only been there once, but it was fun. You belly up to the bar and order your seafood. The food was really good and we had a great time for a special occasion. A bit expensive for weekly dining (we eat out a lot). Again, watch for the specials. There was a boiler dinner I saw a few... More
