We LOVE the Crescent Moon. They always have a great choice of beers and the food is awesome. Steven and Mercedes are the real deal for bartenders. Don't walk, run to the Crescent Moon. You can't go wrong.

Great food, varying beer selection but barkeeps know their stuff. The sandwiches are awesome. Tried the Flatbread this trip and it was terrific. Paired well with dark beer suggested by the barkeep.

My wife and I went here for diner and drinks. They have a modest selection of food, but everything seemed to be done right. The beer list is awesome. Many types of beer, with knowledgeable servers to help you pick. The servers were great, working...More
