I ordered oysters lightly steamed, and they came cooked perfectly. They were large and great flavored! The buffalo shrimp was wonderful--not fried, and spicy but not too hot. Nice sized mussels and clams, with great crab legs. Cole slaw is not creamy enough, and potatoes were too dry. Good selection of beers on tap.

Started going here for their fresh raw oysters on the half shell that are some of the freshest and best I have ever had. Their Monday special of 75 cent oysters makes them even better. But when you add their shrimp and grits it just doesn't get any better. Great place and great friendly service. Give it a try and... More

Love Full Moon! So much so that when we go to the coast we no longer go to Oyster bars- they just can't compete!

The Full Moon platter is abundant with delicious steamed crab legs, shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams and oysters. We ordered 1/2 the oysters raw. The service was constantly excellent and fun. Realize that there is only counter seating so it might not be good for a crowd or for the disabled. I would suggest that the chef rethink the potatoes but... More

I wanted to like this place, and it has fun decor and a lively atmosphere, but the service was so neglectful. To me, it's common sense that when you bring people their food, you should ensure that you have provided them with silverware. This happened not once, but twice, where we had to ask them to bring us cutlery. We... More

Use to love this place. I will not go back. For the price you pay you think they would take better care of you. Service is slow and they forget you are there. We were seated, order our food. Then another group of four was seated about 10 minutes after us. We order appetizers and next thing I know they... More

Completely full restaurant at 6pm on a Tuesday. About a 20 minute wait for seating at the Bar (the only type they have) but sat outside with drinks waiting to be called. Once seated the service was prompt and efficient. Great seafood with the oysters shucked right in front of you.

There isn't much I can say about the Full Moon Oyster Bar except, if you like seafood, this is the place for you! It was a great experience from the minute we walked in the front door, the bar tenders/oyster shuckers, the people bringing out the food, the gal that seated us, were all very nice and a lot of...
