Good, rather eclectic food

We were touring Antietam National Battlefield and took a break to have lunch in nearby Shepherdstown, WV. The Blue Moon Cafe has very good bistro style food, with some unique salads and sandwiches. Service was a little on the sedate side, but friendly.

We ate light but the food was very good. I didn't ask if the dressing was house made, but surely it was because it had a better texture and flavor than just about any I've ever had. The salad was great -- all the greens were very fresh and crunchy. Sit out in the garden if the weather allows. Great... More

I always get great food and great service here. This place reflects the unique side of Shepherdstown. Lots of great options including vegetarian and gluten free. If you can eat outside, it is great with candles and quiet lighting. The creek and privacy from the trees creates a nice ambiance.

was in the area with a friend to do some geocaching when we walked past this establishment. iT looked nice, so later in the day when our bellies called out for food, we remembered it and stopped in. The outdoor seating looked fabulous, with the trees and stream running though, but there was a half hour wait for a table... More

I always get great food and great service here. This place reflects this funky side of Shepherdstown. Lots of great options including vegetarian and gluten free. If you can eat outside, do it. The creek and privacy from the trees creates a nice ambiance.

When we visited the delightful town of shepherdstown we ate in most restaurants in town. As it is a college town you know it had to have an eclectic place to eat. Well this is it! Their offerings are varied, different and delicious. All of the meals were of high quality ingredients and delicious. The interior was just as I... More

This bright spot is a fun and relaxing place to stop for refreshment! Good menu selections and beverage choices. Healthy and organic are the words of the day here! This is also a "green" establishment which is very nice to see! Very attentive and friendly staff. Patio area available. Get there early as this place seems to fill up fast... More

Blue Moon Cafe is right next to Shepherd University and has a great, relaxing outdoor dining area with lots of trees and the Town Run going right through the middle of it. We ordered salads, which were very fresh (the menu includes a blurb on the local sourcing of various ingredients). Maybe they had to go out and pick the... More

It had been a while since I had visited the Blue Moon and boy was I disappointed. They have gone downhill. the Kim's Art Dip used to be spectacular....hot and gooey and wonderful. It is now apparently served lukewarm. It had good flavor but seriously....hot is the way to go. The pilgrim sandwich didn't fail to deliver some awesome taste... More
