Traveling with 10 people, the Blue Moon accommodated us in a few minutes and had a menu that satisfied the entire group from salads to seafood. All entrees were delicious and filling as we enjoyed the 'beach' atmosphere of Nags Head. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Nags Head.

We've been going to the Blue Moon for 4 years now - and EVERY TIME, their food is GREAT! This year, had their goat cheese, artichoke flatbread with Arugala - and it was the BEST! I recommend everyone try out the restaurant - a little hidden gem!

We took a super quick weekend trip to the OBX for our 33rd anniversary. Our dinner choice to celebrate? Blue Moon. It's just our favorite restaurant out there and it so lived up to its expectations. The wait was about 60-70 minutes at 5:30 on a Friday, so we gave them our cell number and went exploring. They texted when... More

This is our favorite restaurant in the OBX. This year we stayed in Hatteras, but we made sure to stop in for lunch on our way down. Always a friendly staff, and always excellent food.

Brought here by friends and had the BEST Buffalo Shrimp ever. While waiting you enjoy a beer or wine on the patio listening to live acoustic music, then they call you to let you know the table is ready--or you can eat at the bar. Great beer/wine selection, great appetizers, and great food. Great service too (thanks Lauren!). Will def... More

This meal was such a nice surprise. The restaurant is located in a strip mall. Always crowded. We showed up 30 minutes prior to lunch and there was already a line! Pasta with scallops dish was fantastic! Don't miss having a meal here.

This place has such great food!! We've eaten here several times and it is always amazing. This week we got there when it opened for lunch at 11:30 and it was completely full in 7 minutes with a line, guess everyone else knows what we know about this great food.
