This is our third year at the Blue Moon, and we always make it our first restaurant stop when in the Outer Banks. Although tucked away in the back of a strip mall, the Blue Moon is no longer a secret gem. When we got there around 6:30 on Saturday, the wait was already 90 minutes. While waiting, you can... More

We really appreciate your kind review. We do want to clarify that Blue Moon Beach Grill will not be moving. We are firmly planted in the corner of this old shopping center and plan on many more years of service. We promise our high standards will not be diminished. We are opening another restaurant in Pirates Cove. It should be... More

My wife and I went for dinner at Blue Moon based only on the Tripadvisor recommendations. We loved the food and the service was really great. We hope to go back before we leave OBX.

We weren't sure about waiting 25 minutes to get in at noon, but it helps when they send a text when a table is ready. And, we got to check out the nice yarn shop nearby, which had some great colors in embroidery thread. The waitress, Jen, was super nice. The open kitchen is a little noisy, but I like... More

Thanks for visiting us and thanks for waiting for a table. Summer and the high season can be a little difficult for both the vacationers and our staff. I am glad that we were able to deliver a great meal to your table. Again, thanks for visiting us. More

We were here in March 2013. Gave it a five star rating then. The minute we were back in this area we returned. Nothing is changed that would affect our rating of this fabulous restaurant. The only difference we noted was that it was a lot busier in August 2014 than it was in the month of March 2013. Fabulous... More

Reservations, Reservations, Reservations! Don't get why no one in OBX takes reservations. Kind of annoying. We had a party of 17, called to give heads up. The lady on the phone just kept repeating herself "come in we'll put your name on the list". She said this for every question I asked like a robot. I just wanted to give... More

We are happy to serve large parties but we will not show preferential treatment, just because you have a large party. You badgered our hostess and the answer was quite simple, "come on in and we will put your name on the list". Yes, its 201,4 and I assure you if you come back in 2015 the answer will be... More

After last year's dinner at the Blue Moon we had decided that we would have the Blue Moon Beach Grill on this year's restaurant short list and honored that decision. Took us about 35 minutes from Sanderling via the Five Lanes of Death. Normally would take the Beach Road but we were starving and wanted to try to beat the... More

I'll start by saying this place was a bit hard to find, but mostly because I wasn't expecting it to be in a shopping plaza. But once we found it, it was really a great dinner. We had a large group including kids, and everyone loved their food. I had the fish tacos, and while they were excellent, I also... More
