Fries were oddly chewy...but husband didn't mind. he had the "blue moo"--looked like deli beef on a salad--wasn't memorable. huge portions. sit outside to enjoy the "town run"--a little creek that runs through town and through the outdoor patio of the Blue Moon. nice unpretentious place for a...

This café is adjacent to the university campus - and a fun spot for lunch. The food is OK - not gourmet dining. Service was pleasant.

Looking for a place to please everyone? Inside bustling and eclectic decor. Outside a cool oasis, books fast and early, We ended up in the window room with blue bottles on the window sills. How to please my picky eater boyfriend? A meatloaf with bacon and cheese sandwich, he said it was fantastic! I got a lunch dish unlike anything... More

During our week of theater, our group went to the Blue Moon twice. The food was wonderful and the outdoor dining made everything even better, We were in a group of 8-10 -- and were well served by the attentive and patient staff, The drinks were great and the prices just right,

This is the top casual food restaurant in Shepherdstown, offering a wide selection including sandwiches, salads, wraps, pizzas, appetizers such as hummus and Sesame noodles, and quite a few craft beers and a few wines. Salads come in two sizes, the large one being very generous. At dinnertime, you can choose additionally from a short menu of entrees. You can... More

Fun, funky cafe with tasty food and great background music. Enjoyed a casual lunch here last Saturday. The salads are delicious and huge. They make a great balsamic salad dressing.

My wife and I came to Blue Moon Cafe based of the recommendation of our Zipline guide at River Riders. After eating here I would highly recommend the Blue Moon Cafe as well. Like the subject line says, I had the best Cobb salad ever. My wife had the Smoking Bird Wrap. It was fantastic too. A hint of heat... More

The food is great. The Blue Moon, while listed as a vegetarian friendly option, is also a carnivore friendly option with some great burgers and chicken sandwhiches. Depending on the time of day, the wait may exceed that of your normal lunch break. The wait is nevertheless worthwhile when you are able.

Really yummy and neato atmosphere..Jacked Up Mac n cheese is a must try and although I didn't have room for it..they offer ice cream that seemed to be a crowd pleaser cause both times I went there was a line with people waiting patiently for their turn

Early dinner at the Blue Moon on two evenings was easy going, friendly, and casual. The menu is thoughtfully put together with good variety. The quiche of the day was nice, and the house dressing is very good. The patio area is cool and shady, particularly nice in hot weather.

Thank Carol J
