“First Sunday Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

This is the first Sunday that the Blue Moon Beach Grill has opened. It was excellent. I especially enjoyed the jerk Mahi special. The house pinot grigio is also excellent.

“my favorite place to eat on the Outer Banks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

The restaurant was crowded in April. Admittedly it was bike week but no other restaurants we visited were crowded. My fried shrimp and clams were delicious at lunchtime and the fish tacos were great for dinner another night. My husband, tired of seafood, chose the hamburger for lunch. He said it was one of the best he had ever eaten. He ordered the same thing 2 nights later! Service is good. Decor is casual but nice. The restaurant is small. Go early, get your name on the wait list, and have a beer or glass of wine while you wait.

“Jem on the OuterBacks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great restaurant - a favorite of the locals. Opened in 2009 and expanded seating in 2011. Located in a strip mall across from the Harley Davidson store in Nags Head off of Beach Road (Virginia Dare).. Outstanding seafood! Great prices! Generous portions! Excellent services! A must restaurant to eat at while vacationing on the Outer Banks.
