This is my husband and my fav date night spot - and we almost always get the dozen char-grilled oysters and split the king crab legs. But the fish is always great and we like the shrimp and grits too. It is easiest to be...seated with only two people because of the way seating is set up. Groups are better for warmer months when they have the patio open - which is not year-round. Full Moon is always great food and the service has usually been really good too.More

This could easily be a five star review but it is not. There were four of us and we sat at the bar because that was what was available to us. They do have an outside patio which would have been nice. It took awhile...for us to be acknowledged and given a menu. Drink orders were taken and a good draft beer arrived soon afterwards. Awhile longer orders were taken. I was not expecting potatoes and cole slaw to come with my meal so that was a delicious surprise. Then the wait began. Two people got their meals, then one more. The fourth said not to wait on him. When we were more than half finished with our meals we caught the server and inquired about the fourth meal. It had been skipped and not even had been prepared yet. Obviously, three of us were finished and the fourth not yet started. What a disappointment. That said the waiter did seem to be hopping around and keeping busy and my Seafood Mornay was absolutely delicious! They took only a small amount off the check. So...I loved my food but not sure if I will return.More

After a long wait due to the covid19 virus, I was finally able to go to Full Moon Oyster Bar in Southern Pines,NC tonight dinner. I was excited because I wanted the 1 1/3 lb King Crab Legs that I had been craving for a...long time. Got there about 7:15 sat at the bar. The gal that was serving where I sat gave me a plate of the potatoes and cole slaw and my coke. Had to ask for silverware setting, got a fork and no napkin. Must have ate the King Crab Legs real fast I don't remember,Oh wait, I NEVER GOT THEM BECAUSE NO ONE TOOK MY ORDER!!!!i PUT $5.00 on the bar to cover my drink and the potatoes and slaw.I left at 8:00 45 min after I sat down. NEVER BEEN SO DISAPPOINTED WITH WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A GREAT PLACE TO EAT. After tonight I don't see me EVER GOING BACK. AND I MOST DEFIANTLY WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYBODY.More

We visit the Full Moon about once a month and regularly order the charbroiled oysters. My wife and I share a dozen and I have a bowl of gumbo which is enough to fill us for dinner. The oysters are just so good! Nautical atmosphere...and good selection of brews.More

We were told that this was the only seafood restaurant around Pinehurst. We were not disappointed. Everything came out HOT! Delicious and seasoned to perfection. Amanda and Kristen were the best servers. We will be back.

We love to sit at the bar and have the oysters shucked right in front of us as we eat. I've heard folks say that other things on the menu are good, but we have just gone there for the oysters so far and they're...great.More
