We had the best lunch overall in the 5 days in the area.Our waitress was a doll. Do not be intimidated by the cranky looking gal who meets you at the door. The food is worth it. Their crab cakes r the best

This restaurant is a must and hands down my favorite in the area. This was my second time and the only challenge is the wait. So try to go early. Food is fantastic!!

This is one of the few places open on Monday nights in Nags Head. Out of all the restaurants the locals recommended, this was hands down the best meal we had in Nags Head. Be prepared-- it is busy!

Great little restaurant. Best fish tacos I have had on the outer banks. Mahi BLT is a winner as well. 30 minute waits are common but well worth it. Open for lunch makes it a great option since so many places are not. Give it a shot you won't regret it!

This was our 2nd visit to Blue Moon and it was another great experience! Our server was helpful and friendly! The food had been consistently delicious. Both visits have been with a group of 7 or more people and everyone has enjoyed their meals. Planning another visit in September!

Had the shrimp and grits and hubby had oysters and fish and chips. Service was prompt and food is good. Very small seating area. Not fancy but definitely worth the wait.

Small restaurant, decent food and not unreasonable prices for a beach area in season. We were a party of 10 with kids and got there around 4:15 and the wait was 30 minutes. So be prepared for a wait because we saw lots of groups waiting when we left. They have outdoor picnic tables you can wait at and get... More

Hey Sandman30..........this my friend is a historical review. If a party of 10, with kids, can have a meal at the top of high season without one single complaint, we made history. I doubt that this has ever been achieved in the history of Tripadvisor. Seriously, thanks for the nice review and please know we appreciate your kind words and... More
