I had heard of the Blue Moose long before we dined there. The story of a teenage boy starting his business by serving dinners out of his parents kitchen was captivating. The reality is even more so! The owner/head chef of this establishment is the ripe old age of 22 years. Not only is his cuisine excellent but his business acumen was as well. He worked the room, going table to table to ascertain that all was well. The menu is reasonably broad with comfort food like chicken pot pie as well as more exotic fare. It is BYOB which makes it far more reasonable than many of the restaurants of the area. The fixed priced menu allowed selections and even included dessert which in my case was a fantastic blueberry cobbler. Go with an appetite, you will be delighted!

The building is very unique in design. It is must see. The food is also worth the visit. Reasonable price served quickly by friendly helpful servers. Had ham, cheese with walnut spread on toasted whith bread. Very good

Friends recommended this place in New Hope because of the cool story about a youngster named Skylar wanted to start a restaurant. Great youthful staff here, food is remarkable and easy on the wallet - great price and BYOB helps. The sweet potato soup was killer, great salads, crab cake, pork loin all excellent. You won't be disappointed. Parking is always tough but that's New Hope.

The service and quality of the food regarding freshness, seasoning, cooked to order as well as presentation was all very good! The fact that the restaurant resides in a very old building is quaint and perfect in the New Hope setting, however, some investment needs to be made into the facility, as i went to the bathroom, no water came out from the sink, then it was shut down minutes later. You cannot have a restaurant that does not have a working bathroom, as it is a potential health hazard. I would return, however, in the hopes that this problem is resolved permanently.

Hello,
And thank you for you nice review of our restaurant. I just wanted to take a second to clarify for both yourself and other tripadvisor members that on the Sunday you visited us we regrettably experienced a blockage in our main water pipe that crippled our Sunday night dinner service. We were forced to pull our bathrooms out of service for two hours while our contractors attempted to fix the problem. As of seven pm, we discovered that greater measures would need to be taken and we closed the restaurant early that evening. We certainly by no men's intend to operate under these conditions, this situation was beyond our control. We do our best to handle any incident as responsibly as possible. Hope to see you again soon!
