I wasn't a fan of my cheesesteak sandwich, but hubby liked his burger, and liked the choices for craft beer. Bigger seating area, also a waiting area that includes a gift shop.

I had the BEST Ceasar salad I've ever had. I took my server's advice and added the fried oysters. Off the charts!

Blue moon is a well kept secret! Their food is a crowd pleaser! Have been several times and it’s consistently good! Its a well rounded menu with drink specials. I gravitate to the seafood personality.

Food was enjoyable and portion sizes and choices very appropriate if you have a hearty appetite. For a large group that includes children and other people who have smaller appetites, you may experience much extra food that won’t be eaten! Options and food choices are...More

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
