I had a dinner hosted here for business, and I was blown away by the drink and food. I wasn't expecting much from a sushi standpoint being in Ludington, but the sushi was fantastic. We had the big sampler platter for appetizers plus some bang bang shrimp that was amazing. My steak was one of the best steaks I have... More

On this visit my husband had the filet mignon and he said it was the best one he's EVER had anywhere.

Extreme high pricing for what you get. Sampler dinner offered of very small and rationed portions. This eatery is overrated.

You don't want to miss this place. Excellent creativety in the menu, unique blend of flavores. I am not a vegetable eater but the two times I have been there the chef Jason has prepared the meal including vegetables sides and I ate all the vegetables

You can travel far and wide--I mean Chicago, Detroit and New York City--and not find a finer restaurant than The Blue Moon. It's almost shocking to realize that this place is in Ludington, Michigan. The upper deck is great when the weather is temperate and sidewalk tables allow you to have your dog at your side. Fantastic variety of absolutley... More

Casual indoor or outdoor dining. Great food and beer selection. Nice place to have lunch or a casual dinner after the beach.
