Been here many, many times. Always have good food, and good service. Great for lunch and dinner. Good beer and cocktail selection. Be prepared to wait, they are always humming, but it’s worth it. Menu is good and always changing. Fine to bring kids too. Try their second location also.

This is quite the busy place so get there early if you don’t like a long wait. I had the fish n chips which were made with Mahi instead of the usual cod you see in most restaurants. There were 4 nice, big pieces fried in a very nice tasting batter served atop freshly cut fries. The jalapeño remoulade was a nice accompaniment. Hubby chose the Beach Burger which he enjoyed. We finished dinner by splitting a slice of salted caramel cheesecake, which was a great choice. We’d definitely visit this restaurant again.

Some friends recommended the Blue Moon Beach Grill so we tried it while visiting the Outer Banks. My huband had a bowl of soup and the Oysters Rockefeller while I ordered the House Special: grilled Rockfish, vegetables and risotto. All of it was delicious. We also tried their desserts. The Hershey Bar cake was not too heavy and it was very good. We plan on eating there again during our next visit. Oh, and the service was excellent...the food came out super fast.

Great grill with great prices. Very hard to get into in the summer. I alway go in off season. Love this place. Also because so many place have terrible service you don't have to worry about that at the Blue Moon!

We stopped in to this rstr in a strip mall only b/c the rstr we intended to go to was closed. Well that turned out to be a good thing as we had the best lunch of our trip right here! We both had chowder and crab cakes and high fived each other as this was the BEST chowder on the island. Give them a try, you wont regret it!
