“Fancy Brunch on the Intercoastal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This place rocks. For brunch in the area, it can't be beat. Perfect for when family comes to town. It's fancy, yet casual enough. Lots of eating options. Watch the boats cruise by and the bridge go up and down.

“Great food and best fish in years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The hype was pretty strong, so we were wondering if this place could live up to the hype. It did. The view of the intercoastal was really pretty from our outdoor table. The waiter was outstanding, just as the reviews suggested. My wife had a beet salad and I had a bib lettuce and candied walnut salad. Both were outstanding. My wife had salmon and I had grouper for entrees. Honestly, both were some of the best things we'd had in a long time. Highly recommend this place. Sounds like we're related to the owner. We're not. We live in Chicago and are visiting for a couple weeks. Just plain a very very good restaurant.

“Inventive Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Blue Moon Fish Company is a beautiful restaurant on the Intracoastal. I ordered Grouper with a lump crab and roasted corn crust, on a bed of wild mushroom and asparagus risotto with red wine butter. At $36, it was a little pricey, but definitely was delicious...and enough for 2 people to eat. My husband had an amazing swordfish dish, which was equally huge. We also had mussels, which were good enough. I appreciate the reputation for excellence that this restaurant has earned, but I doubt I'll return. I'm glad that we went, but enjoyed other restaurants in the area more.

“The Sea Bass is excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We were up in Lauderdale to see Flash Dance and decided to try Blue Moon for dinner after the afternoon matinee. We were very pleased. Mark took very good care of us. From the valet parking to the greetings coming and going we enjoyed our visit. While the cost is a little pricey, especially the bar ($23 for two mixed drinks), the food was excellent. I especially enjooyed the sea bass. It is again pricey but the portion is generous and the presentation is appealing. We will be back but maybe we will ave our drinks down on the shore before dinner.

“Excellent Sunday Brunch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

My girlfriend and I consider ourselves food connoisseurs. To begin with, the ambience was quiet relaxing. The tremendous variety of food at the Sunday brunch was spectacular. The seafood was extremely fresh and delicious. The desserts were to "die for." The service was outstanding!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting South Florida or even the locals for that matter. After experiencing that awesome brunch, you will certainly return.
