This restaurant is excellent and everyone knows it, so arrive early or prepare to wait. We tried to get a table at Blue Moon one evening last week (mid-April) but arrived around 7 and would have had a long wait. We returned another day around 5:30, thinking that was early enough in the off-season, but there were no tables. Luckily,... More

This restaurant will be moving to a larger location which will help with the fact that they attract such a crowd, perhaps the wait will be shorter in the summer hours. Personally one of my faves are their "Shrimp and Grits." They do not have the usual hot flavor as others but a nice mix of cheeses in the grits,... More

Great food! I started with the Pulled pork nachos - oh my! Filet mignon so good. Philly cheese steak and seafood tacos. Delicious. Great bar and beer and selection.

All my experiences eating here have been terrific...lunch or dinner! I haven't eaten anything that has not been delicious and well presented. Usually love the steak and cheese, crabcakes, soups....oysters...just anything they serve is great...and wait until the soft-shell crabs are in season...whoa!!! While their boardwalk fries are the best...I prefer to substitute their grilled vegies...never have a problem doing... More

We had an enjoyable lunch. The food was excellent and our waitress was great. The location in a strip mall initially detracted from the appeal but the atmosphere inside was pleasant. I recommend dining here!

Typical grill menu offers entree's that are good. Certainly a step above fast food chains in both food choices and atmosphere. Off season is strongly preferred as this restaurant attracts a heavy flow of tourists during the season. The result can be a very long wait time for a table and a very noisy experience once seated - you cannot... More

We went to Napoli (FL) and back from CT. Down and back we stopped here. Our waitresses Elizabeth and Holly answered our questions by bringing the chefs over to our table. The shrimp and grits were so pleasing and complex we needed the ingredients. We guessed it all except the smoke paprika. So, so good! Everything - fried oysters, fish... More

We very much enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant, anything with a Caribbean theme is a winner for me! The food was good, it just seemed short of being great. We tried the fried green tomatoes with shrimp and goat cheese - the dish seemed over cooked. I tried the jerk pull apart pork sandwich - again good but seemed... More

Great little restaurant. We were seated very quickly and the place was very clean. The menu had lots of choices for people with different tastes. The cost was very reasonable. All four of us were very happy with our food.

My visit to the Blue Moon Beach Grill started off a little rocky since the menu online didn't quite match the menu set in front of me. Turns out the menus on the website aren't separated to show the difference between lunch and dinner so the items I had hoped to try were, unfortunately, not available. Our server was lovely... More
