Very Good Lunch

Hal Moon is known for game. One diner had Wild Boar Chili which he much admired. I myself had their excellent mushroom soup, mushroom agriculture being a well-known Kennett Square standby. The lady had pumpkin ravioli, not for me but she loved it. Quite a number of craft brews on tap as well as... read more

A friend of mine and I decided to have cocktails after a show and this place was recommended by my son. We sat at the upstairs bar and we were served by a blonde bartender who had her hair up in a pony tail....I really should have gotten her name, but I was so appalled by what she did I... More

Half Moon is one of my favorite restaurants in Kennett Square. It's laid back, always has a fun crowd, and a creative menu. Yummy!

Every time we are down in the area we try and stop here for dinner. I absolutely just love the variety on the menu that you can not get anywhere else. Honestly, where else are you going to find venison pot stickers and then kangaroo loin for dinner. It was all wonderful as usual. We need to go back more... More

I don't dine here often and every time I do I'm reminded of why that is. In a nutshell it's because I never feel comfortable here and this visit was no exception. The food is good, not great, and the service is OK but I have never had a complete dining experience at this restaurant. On this visit we were... More

This is a restaurant that has been featured on food network for its servings of exotic meats like elk,kangaroo, ostrich, bison etc. I suppose if you're into that sort of thing it's a great place to go. I had a hard time finding anything that was weight watchers friendly that wasn't a salad or some brand of animal that I... More

We were expecting more after our visit to Longwood Gardens and went out of our way to find the Half Moon. The food was average, the service was average, and the prices were in line. Nothing to write home about, but not bad.

Was over on vacation and found this place on line and decided to book a table. The place was not that busy for a Saturday night and felt it is more of a local drinking kind of place. The decor is ok the food was ok but they had ran out of a lot of stuff on the menu. Its... More

Whenever we're in the Kennett Square area, we eat at Half Moon. There's always a great selection of standard pub grub, beers and wines, but what makes Half Moon unique is that there's also always a variety of interestingly prepared game meals like, wild boar, bison, elk, and others, from burgers to steaks. Everything on the menu is fresh and... More
