For a romantic evening ask for seating on the roof. A reservation is highly recommended. They have all kinds of meats available, but I have not tried because I'm unaware of their practices for obtaining things like llama, kangaroo, gator, bear... I know someone who has tried several and enjoyed them. My fav is class burger and fries. Veggie options... More

This place is a little too pricey to bring kids with but for a nice couples meal it is fantastic. The game meat trio sampler was perfect (elk, pheasant sausage, and kangaroo[best of the 3!])"' then a brisket sandwich with au jour and a caesar salad instead of chips(free substitute) made this a very filling, very tasty lunch/dinner. My wife... More

Picked up our son at the Philly Airport and, since he's a chef in Maine, thought we'd take him to an interesting restaurant....despite the on-set of snow! My wife and I have eaten there previously and again it was a wonderful experience. He and I enjoyed Bison burgers and my wife's crab cake, with root veggies, was excellent. Not only... More

We stopped by for dinner, the menu is diverse and interesting. All the food we had was really good. The place is a pub or saloon so it is not an elegant restaurant but the food is really excellent.

Before visiting Longwood Gardens, our family stopped for a late lunch at Half Moon. It's a typical old world bar setting with high wooden booths and a large bar. There were only a few tables occupied yet we were seated towards the back not far from the kitchen. That is always a little irksome. The saloon menu has a nice... More

We were in Kennett Square to visit Longwood Gardens and could not get a reservation for dinner there so I looked here on Tripadvisor and we decided to try Half Moon. As described there were some unusual offering like Kangaroo burgers but we opted for more traditional ones. I had the Duck Confit which was delicious and my husband had... More

Having visited many times we must recommend! Try it all! There are so many interesting choices on the menu that vary month to month. Buffalo, moose, rabbit?! What an unusual establishment that is quite the conversation!

My partner and I had lunch here before heading over to Longwood Gardens. Expecting to get just a burger, we were greatly surprised at the range of exotic meats that you could choose from. My partner had camel and I had bison. Both of the meats were on the lean range with a taste that can only be described as... More

This was our first visit and once again TripAdvisor provided excellent advice. We started with the mushroom sampler that was first class. My wife forgot to mention she is a vegetarian and when her pancetta arrived the staff quickly replaced it with a vegetarian version. My pulled elk sandwich was delicious. The homemade chips were the best we've ever had... More

We just visited the Half Moon Restaurant with friends to celebrate a birthday Elk happened to be on the menu that night and both of the men ordered it. The ladies tried it--we're not as adventurous as our men! I have to say it was delicious. The elk was tender and tasted to me as though the marinade or sauce... More
