We had great service, fastastic entrees, and delicious desserts. The rating would have been 5 stars except for the wait time. We were quoted am hour and a half wait time but it took two hours. We were only a party of four. They really need to set up a reservation system and expand their locations size. It would be... More

We were in Nags Head for three days and ate there TWICE. We would have eaten there all 3 days, but we had three starving kids on the first day and the wait was too long. Best time to go is for lunch...we got there EARLY (11:30, right when it opened) and the place was full by 11:45. All the... More

Pros: - The food is excellent and the portions are huge. My family had the cheesesteak, fish tacos, and kids spaghetti. All are highly recommended. Even the coffee was great, which is a rarity in American restaurants (no offence, USA). - The service was terrific. The servers were very attentive and provided good recommendations when asked. Everyone was super-friendly. -... More

The food was pretty good --we ordered the oysters and flounder but the waitress charged us 25 cents for a little more tarter sauce. I thought that this was an unreasonable charge when we were spending around 50 dollars for a meal. I don't recommend this place because of petty charges.

Its been 5 years since we've been here, and they had expanded since then, but the quality of the food had not changed. Simply the best crabcakes and cheesesteaks around! Everyone in our party of 9 loved it - kids through grandparents. Get here early during peak season - it fills up fast. But it is DEFINITELY worth the wait!

This place has great food, an awesome bar and really nice people. We were a group of 9, 4 adults and 5 kids. We had to wait awhile for table (I hear that most people have to wait here) but it was worth it. Everything we ate was amazing. The live entertainment kept the kids dancing until our table was...

Ate at Blue Moon in July and it was our favorite spot in Nags Head. The food and service were both top notch. The menu has options that will satisfy foodies or picky eaters. Both the bar and wait staff were also excellent. Highly recommend.

I am submitting this a bit late, my girlfriend and I actually went here as our final dinner before heading home in September. We had read excellent reviews on this site and gave it a try. Now, keep in mind it's in a strip mall with limited seating but no matter the wait it will be worth it. I swore... More

Simply the best from drinks to dessert. The only thing that could improve is the wait time on busy days. We waited for an hour to an hour and a half. But, it was well worth the wait!!!
