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...

By far the best seafood in town. There is nothing on the menu that I haven't tried. The oysters are shucked right in front of you!

Been here many times. We usually order the full moon which has crab leg cluster, scallops, shrimp, oysters, mussels and clams. A good value at $36 or so for the amount of seafood you get. All the food is good. Service pretty good as well, everyone helps each other. One of our top restaurants!

Wonderful food, fun staff. I have been going to this restaurant since it opened in Clemmons. Unfortunately, I moved and haven't been here in a few years. It is still wonderful. I love the buffalo shrimp, which is the only buff shrimp I have ever had that isn't fried. The oysters are wonderful as are the oyster shooters. The tuna... More

The best Sea Bass I've ever had!!! Just wish they had tables, not a fan of eating at the bar with more than 1 other person

Food is good and cooked fresh, so expect a wait for the food. The wife likes her seafood breaded and fried and they don't have any fried seafood so that was a bit of a let down for us. She had their chicken teriyaki which was good. No tables, just a big bar top that runs around the place.

My friend and I have been regular customers at this restaurant for more than 3 years. We go on Tues night which is Crabby Tues. I don't eat crab in abundance but my friend does once in a while. We go early and have no problem waiting for space. The crab bisque is always ordered. I love the char-grilled oysters.... More
