We stopped here is a whim. Very happy that we did. The food is great, staff and guests are friendly, and the restaurant is very clean. It was crowded and all seething is at a traditional oyster bar, so be ready to sit next to and with other patrons.

My sister and I stopped in here for a bite and we're not disappointed. The seating is at a big bar that creates a crazy circle around the place = fun, our server was awesome and friendly, I ordered the crab cake sandwich, my sister got the shrimp burger...oh yeah they were soooo good. We even received yummy potatoes and... More

Stopped in to try it. Had our granddaughter with us. One table for 4 next to the door but we were told reserved for wheelchairs. Put the baby on the bar we were told. Don't think so. We left.

This is as close as you will get to a traditional Florida Oyster Bar. Full-Moon has a great atmosphere/experience. You sit right at the oyster bar, as they shuck fresh oysters right in front of your eyes. If you are in the mood for fresh seafood, this is the place in Moore County to get a nice casual meal. If...

We've been there several times and the food has been good. This time, when I entered I was met by an unpleasant fish odor. I ordered scallops; the more costly option was to get them steamed or grilled. i chose grilled – they were extremely salty, so I sent them back and asked to get less sauce. The second batch... More

The waiters always make sure you have a good time. And it's hard not to have fun when you're eating good food. A "must try" is the alligator. Don't forget to get a t-shirt! It's pretty loud in there - but having fun can get loud.

In the mood for steamed oysters, we went with another couple. All agreed the menu selections, food and service were great. Seared ahi tuna appetizer was very tasty. Wife had peeled shrimp, I had peck of steamed oysters, cooked to order, medium for me. Didn't have to wait for seating. Servers were very attentive. Prices were reasonable. Always enjoy this...

Went here for a business dinner, pretty much bar seating only so not the right place if you are looking to have a quiet conversation but a great atmosphere here and the servers all seem to be having a good time and are friendly and helpful. The chargrilled oysters were delicious, I would recommend sticking with the fresh seafood that... More

Very impressive restaurant, but I mistakenly ordered the wrong dishes. Instead of getting basic seafood (steam shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops, oysters, etc) I got exotic and ordered Crab Nachos and Seafood Quesidillas. The crab nachos were soggy and not very good. The seafood quesadilla was better, but not as distinct seafood. Next time I'll do better. And the beer was... More
