“Great Restaurant for All Occasions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

The Blue Moon Beach Grill is not easy to find, stuck in the back of a small strip mall, but it's worth looking for. The dishes we have had have all been well prepared. Very tasty seafood. This is not an undiscovered restaurant, and crowds are common during prime dining hours. Service is good and the decor is attractive. Worth the trip and the possible wait.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

A true hidden gem! You have to hope that the crowd never discovers this restaurant and that the trendy people turn up their noses at its hidden strip shopping center location. The food was excellent. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable but slightly noisy. The server was very personable as well as one of the owners who stopped by the table to make sure everything was suitable. The restaurant is small and doesn't take reservations so plan the timing of your visit accordingly.

“Our annual first night at the beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We found this restaurant by seeking out reviews....and absolutely love it! It's where we always go when we first get to the beach and usually the last night before we go home. Service is great, food is delicious. Our family favs are the Mahi Mahi BLT and they have an awesome Philly Cheesesteak. A great selection for the seafood lover or the seafood hater. Soups are delicious too!

“Best on the beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

My brother recommended the Blue Moon Beach Grill to my husband and me. It has become one of, if not our favorite place to eat on the beach. I love the fish tacos and my husband is fond of the fish & chips. Fast & attentive service. Can't wait until our next visit to the Outer Banks to go back to this excellent place to eat.
