The Blue Moon is a fun place to share a meal and a beer with friends. Relax outside under the trees by the Town Run when the weather is nice. Parking is free across the street at Shepherd University most weekends. Gluten free and vegetarian dishes as well. Chicken Avocado salad, soups and quiche are my favorites.

We visited the Blue Moon Café for lunch and a week later, tried it for dinner. Both times, great food, excellent service in a quaint dining area. For lunch I tried the Turkey Gobbler which was very tasty. For dinner I was torn between the Meatloaf entrée and the Meatball Hoggie....the hoggie was really good. Liz was our waitress who... More

The Kimster and the Pilgrim are perennial favorite sandwiches. Even better are the cheerful and friendly servers and staff who work hard to provide great service. A gem in Shepherdstown!

I love to take out-of-town guests to the Blue Moon! It's a one-of-a-kind place, with a menu that is sure to please the pickiest eater. Love the Tuscan salad, hummus, nachos, chicken salad and The Pilgrim is the best turkey sandwich you'll ever eat! Ingredients are locally sourced and top notch!

My wife and I eat here nearly every time we visit my mother in Shepherdstown. This time we had my mother with us and also my daughter and her family. My wife particularly likes this restaurant because of the many vegetarian options. My traditional Ruben was excellent and a very generous portion. My wife and mother both enjoyed their Philly...

Great people, unique menu, locally sourced ingredients and an atmosphere that will keep you coming back for more. It's a home run every visit. Take your friends and family visiting from out of town. We did, and they keep talking about it.

The last warm day of the Fall on a motorcycle ride and hungry for something light to tide us over before dinner. Seated outside in a stone courtyard by the creek, we ordered the Hummus Plate, Grilled Chicken & Avocado, Greek Village Salad & Cucumber Brushetta. Servings were generous and food was excellent!

The service is friendly and quite good. We were a large group and the staff dealt with us very well. Some food selections fall short of even very good, but the rest are excellent.

As it turns out, when the weather cools down and the garden isn’t open, the food just isn’t good enough to make this place an attraction on its own. The burger my husband had was not good and did not match the description on the menu at all and my salad was meh at best. The service started off stellar... More

We have eaten at the Blue Moon Cafe a number of times over the years and we've always been pleased. This time we were traveling with our dog and they allowed her to sit in the outside patio with us which is a gem. As with our visits in the past, the food was delectable, the service was great and...
