“OK, not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We'd heard good things about Full Moon so maybe our expectations were too high. The food was good but not particularly special. Perhaps being somewhat off season had something to do with it. There was just one person working the dining room but she was friendly and fun and handled the few tables with ease. The atmosphere was pretty congenial and the tables ended up conversing with each other. That made it a fun night.

“Grear atmosphere and good beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

I did not think my pork bbq was fresh, i didn't eat it. Also the frenchfries were limp. However the shrimp with polenta was very good. I liked the beer also. Overall a bit pricey for what we got. Unusual also to turn in a plate of foid back to the kitchen and the waitress has no comment.

“Late lunch at Full Moon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Luckily we arrived in time to get a very late lunch and were pretty much alone in this delightful spot with its many windows to people watch. Delicious cups of soup were followed by generously filled sandwiches. Tasty!

“Motorcycle trip led us past Full Moon Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Was down this way for a motorcycle ride and we all turned heads passing this place...Parked and we asked ourselves....Subs...or Beer? Beer won and it was a great decision.

I had the Charon Stout and a bayou wrap. It was a large last second group of us, 15 hungry people came right in and they pulled up tables for us. Fantastic service, polite staff. No problems even with our distracted group!

“Excellent, but no sweetened ice tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

I am still in shock that some NC restaurants think it's ok to serve iced tea without sugar. The crab cake sandwich was delightful, but this place must only cater to northerners. Sorry guys, brewed, sweetened ice tea is mandatory!!
