Went with my wife one evening for dinner. Char grilled oysters are exceptional. Food was ok. Jerk shrimp was a little too spick for me. I like spicy but like to taste my food. Wife thought mussels didn't have enough broth. Took a very long time just to get drinks. They had waitresses shucking their own oysters so they just... More

It is a very friendly atmosphere, The food is DELICIOUS! there has never been a thing... More

This is a real oyster bar...comfy wooden seats at a...bar. Have been here more than ten times. Tues is all you can eat crab legs...so the vibe can be bit more "all you can eat buffet" Wednesday is surf and turf, if you don't get there by 5, then you will likely have a wait. The food is great and... More

5 stars. The freshest seafood you will find in the area. The Full Moon combo plate is incredible. Worth the wait. Very friendly staff.

A tremendous gem located in Clemmons, NC. We had such a wonderful dinner comprising of skewered shrimp and a filet mignon with potatoes and various beers. The meal was simply excellent! And to top it off, the price was very reasonable for the quality of the food. We loved it and will be back on "Crabby Tuesdays".

This is the best seafood I have had without actually being on the coast. I especially love the roasted oysters. Really excellent. If you need a seafood fix and can't get to the beach, definitely stop over at Full Moon Oyster Bar!

Wife & I are raw oyster & shellfish lovers, so an ideal place for us if the offerings are consistently excellent, but not so here. We have dined at this quaint bar-type restaurant a half dozen times - we have always started w/ a half peck of shucked oysters - the first time they were outstanding (all sourced from the... More

I haven't been here in several years. But the food and service has remained consistent. It is just a fun restaurant where you sit at the bar with everyone else and enjoy good fresh seFood. The beer was cold, the margaritas were well made and rather seafood was terrific. The Grilled shrimp and grilled grouper were outstanding. Service was perfect.

This place is basically a bar that serves great seafood options. It is a bit pricey for dinner. A dozen fried oysters $17. The food was fresh & tasty. Worth a trip. Check the daily specials. Wine Wednesdays for example..

While small Full Moon is by far the best place for fresh seafood in Winston. I could make a meal just from the apps menu and the daily specials are terrific. I have never had a bad experience , love the staff too.
