We had 2 great meals and excellent service both time we went here in February. Our waitress, Kim, was so awesome! She was very patient with our 5yr old and made all of us very welcome. The food was nothing short of fabulous well. Salmon is not the easiest fish to cook medium, but the chef at Blue Moon knew... More

Okay food. French fries covered with pepper, too spicy. Taste of fried oysters was good but not filling for price.

This place had some of the best sandwiches we have ever had! I had a mahi mahi blt and my husband had a cheesesteak with the homemade "whiz". Both sandwiches were exceptionally delicious. The mahi on mine was a nice big piece of fish and the sauce was so good. Hubby's cheesesteak was the best I have ever tasted and... More

We ate dinner here late on a Sunday evening and were surprised and delighted by tasty food and well-concocted drinks. The fish tacos and shrimp and grits had us wondering if we could swing by for lunch the next day! There's a wall of art for sale by local artists. We enjoyed our dinner!

I found Blue Moon Beach Grill looking on my GPS, it had some good reviews, so we gave it a try. NO disappointments whatsoever. Portobello mushroom with Parmesan crust in a tomato risotto was delicious. The fish tacos are very good with the grilled fish. Such a fresh taste along with the black beans, which had a hint of heat... More

We've been here many times over the past 4 or 5 years and it never disappoints. We always try to eat at the bar...the waitstaff is always top shelf, the sea food fresh, and the vibe hits that sweet spot of friendly conversation with others, reasonable prices, and creative cuisine. Yeah, it's in a strip center with an eclectic mix... More

Our first visit and so glad we came. Our server was very helpful and cheerful, and checked on us often. I had the encrusted tuna and it could not have been better, the risotto was out of this world and the crab bisque was the best. My husband had the mixed seafood, the clams were beautifully battered and the blackened... More

Came here for dinner between shifts at work. Quickly got some amazing service at the bar by the attentive and friendly waitstaff. The entire restaurant was clean and classy while still having the charismatic beach flare. Good small selection of draft beer including a few NC brews. The food was some of the best seafood I've had since moving to... More

Thanks Bryan K, I think "classy while still having the charismatic beach flare" is an awesome description. We work hard to be a restaurant for our locals......that's why we are open in February. The locals helped launch our business and we don't think you can be a "locals restaurant" and close up shop in the winter. Thanks for your business... More
