Lunch before we go.

We did the lunch special for the day of Blackened Tuna Gyro and the Pepper dusted Swordfish Tostada, as an appetizer we had the Flash fried Calamari in a lemon butter sauce. The food came quick and was very large in portions for being lunch. All the food was extraordinary, cooked to perfection with... read more

We had dinner here on our recent trip to Nags Head based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. I had grilled chicken and my husband had fried oysters. He said the oysters were delicious. I was less than impressed with the chicken. It is small and crowded inside. We just didn't find it to be a comfortable atmosphere.

We had heard really good things about this place and wanted to give it a try but we had been told they are usually very busy and the wait can be quite long. We wanted to get take out since we were spending the day on the beach and did not want to wait a long time for a table.... More

We sought out Blue Moon Beach Grill after having great meals at the Pirate's Cove sister restaurant Blue Water Grill. We came for lunch on a very busy Saturday in Nags Head and did have to wait for 20-30 min. with a party of 5. We spent our time a few doors down at a candy shop. They have a... More

One of our favorite eateries on the OBX. Be sure and get there early because it is small and cozy. Food and service are excellent. Enjoy?

We arrived on a Saturday evening, and it was full, waiting time around 1.5h. So, book a table in advance or do it like us, sit at the bar and you can also enjoy your food there. The service might even be quicker. However, the waiting was totally worth it. We had the meal with the crab meat and it... More

Let me just say...this place is worth the wait! I had shrimp and grits..my husband had the fish and chips. Both were just... More

Unless you get there when they open, it is highly likely you will have to wait but you will be glad you did. As mentioned by others, the food and service are outstanding. The place is very small and very full. I suggest getting something off the specials menu. I had a tuna tostada which was very good and filling.... More
