“Absolutely awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Just finished a late lunch/early dinner...Every but of our meal was terrific. Hubby and I shared clam chowder and salad special for appetizers. Hubby is more into soup-- said it was delicious. But the salad was the best I have ever had--Seared scallops, caramelized onions, roasted peppers, blue cheese crumbles, baby greens, balsamic vinaigrette. It was amazing. Entrees were Mahi BLT and burger special "Shrimp burger" which had grilled shrimp, onion rings and cheddar over the burger. Burger was way too tall to have any shot of wrapping my mouth around it; fork and knife approach worked great, and every element of it was outstanding. Hubby said Mahi was great as well. Fries were also excellent. Very attentive and friendly service. Really look forward to another visit here next time we are on OBX.

“What a Surpise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

It was mid-afternoon and we were really hungry. We were driving past this strip of shops that this Grill resides in and by blind luck decided to stop. It was excellent. We opted to sit at the bar so we didn't have to wait. We shared several dishes. The fish tacos were the best I've ever had. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and the "locals" that were eating at the bar were really nice too. The whole experience was just great and I will definitely go back when I return to the Outer Banks.

“The Best Restaurant in OBX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming to OBX for 13 years and have eaten at restaurants from Corolla through Ocracoke. This establishment is the best we have eaten at...a must stop. The location and strip it sits in is unassuming and unimpressive. Don't let that stop you from going pass the tinted windows into a comfortable ambiance. The wait was 30 minutes. Grab a beer and wait. The bartender was great and she made sure we were good while we waited. After we sat we ordered the Oysters Rockefeller and Fried Green Tomatoes w Shrimp. Amazing. We got the Chicken Sandwich, the Mahi Sandwich, the Cheesesteak , and the BBQ Sandwich. Heaven on earth. We ended with the Pecan Pie and Key Lime Pie. Fabulous. Service was superb. Find your way to the best food in OBX.

“Favorite place on Outer Banks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Blue Moon is absolutely a must have every trip to the Outer Banks. Some times twice in one day! Salads, fish tacos, shrimp burger, buffalo shrimp, catch of the day are all incredible. This is a cute little restaurant full of local flair. Super friendly wait staff! Definitely worth stopping.
