“Don't Pass It Up! Great Inexpensive Option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

We attended our son's graduation from Navy Bootcamp. We tried other options, but restaurants were full and long waiting lines. My son didn't want to be late getting back to his ship and it seemed that everywhere we turned to find a restaurant, there was traffic. We passed this restaurant up because it looked more like a large diner and we wanted to eat somewhere nice. However, we were running late and unfamiliar with our surroundings so we opted to turn around and eat at this restaurant. As we starded walking in, I heard my son talking to someone and lo and behold another sailor was there with his family. We were meant to come here because this was the same family that took my son out for Christmas dinner since we lived far away. We owed them a debt of gratitude so we asked them to join us and it was our treat. Everyone enjoyed their food and they had wonderful looking cakes, but I was too stuffed to eat. The others got cheesecakes and they said it tasted great. The place wasn't fancy, but the service was good and the food was excellent! I opted for crab cakes for $8.95-where would you find great crabcakes for that price?! We were so glad to find this place and to meet the family that our son spent his first Christmas away from home with.

“Good food at an excellent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

The prices at this place are amazing. The food was very good and they were quick. It was directly across from our hotel, which was convenient.

“Great Home-Style Cooking, Awesome Staff, HugeSelection and Portions!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

We ate there twice during our visit to our son's Naval Graduation. We even took our son there for lunch right after the ceremony. The entire staff welcomed us as we entered the restaurant! Their menu is one of the largest I've seen. At first, I was leery because with a menu this size, how could they specialize any one dish. But everything we had (on both occasions) was awesome... so full of flavor! And portion sizes??? HUGE!
We tried this restaurant after reading recommendation from various travel sites... and so glad we did. If we are ever back in the Lake Bluff/Great Lakes area, we will definitely be stopping by for for good home-style cooked food at The Full Moon Restaurant!!!

Great homestyle food, generous portions, welcoming atmosphere, and friendly service. They have quite the impressive menu, and I intend to return several times if only to try what else they have to offer.
