“A must try”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Amazing food and service. We have been to many upscale resturants and the Blu Moon is right up there, a hidden gem. The ribs are tender and flavorful. The small plate scallops were delicious as well.

“Gem in Ludington, Must Have shrimp and grits”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

If you lie lots of flavor, inventive menu, this is the place for you! Ask for the dining room, plan on leisurely pace, and revel on the delicious plates. Duck carpaccio also delish, and specials are inventive as well. Bon appetit!

“Phenomenal Experience”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I went to the Blu Moon Bistro on May 22, 2013 for dinner, with my boyfriend. This restaurant was recommended to us by a few of the chefs that I have in culinary school (I am a culinary student) and by a few of the guys that I work with in the restaurant industry. Many of them personally knew the chef, so I knew I was in for a treat. The atmosphere was quite classy, yet still very comfortable. We were seated promptly, but had to wait a few minutes for a waitress and drinks, which was a bit odd to us wince there seemed to be quite a few milling around. Once our waitress showed up, she was very sweet, and gave us plenty of time to decide on our meal choices. We decided to get the chef's presidential tasting dinner, and I asked if we could talk to the chef personally. She said that we could, and promptly sent him out. He was a man who obviously loved his job, and he greeted us enthusiastically. We were then brought out a course, one at a time, each of which astounded our palates, and was basically the best meal of our lives. I for one have had amazing food many times, but this food went above and beyond with the tastes, textures, and presentations. After every course, the chef came out to ask how we liked it, and then brought the next course to us and explained what it was. We left with exceedingly full and happy bellies, and despite the $102 bill for the two of us, it was completely worth every penny spent. I would recommend the presidential meal tasting to anyone looking for a phenomenal experience with a bit of money to spend.

“One of the best restaurants in town.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Have been visiting Ludington for the past 6 years and never ate at the Blu Moon--opened in 2008. Now I wish we had gone sooner! We ate dinner on a Friday night--off season in April. Wasn't too busy and we were able to get a table for 2 right away. When you enter, the bar area is immediately to the left with the main dining area to the right, and a secondary dining area in another room past the bar. There is also a deck on the roof, but obviously it wasn't open in April. Had a half-slab of the "Missouri Style Ribs" which were perfectly done with a sauce that has just a bit of heat on the back end. Some of the best ribs I've had. Highly recommend them and the creme brulee for dessert. Our waitress was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. If you're in Ludington, make sure you stop here for dinner.
