I had the shrimp not a burger and it was tasty. The steak and cheese is big enough for 2 or even 3 people. Will eat here again.

This was not our first time at the Blue Moon. It was our first night in Nag's Head this year, and we arrived later than planned. Hungry, tired of the car, and anxious for some great seafood, we ventured over around 8:30 P.M. No one...More

Knewspring, had you asked your server, I bet the kitchen would have grilled some seafood for you.....aka gluten free. Since everything is cooked to order, we would have done this for you. Thanks for the recommendation. Cheers and bon appetit!!

Hey CLUMBERINDIANA, you have hit out sweet spot and we couldn't be happier. Words like "refreshing, massive, delicious, tasty, comfortable, great, best, and Yummmmm are music to our ears. But hearing "we will definitely be back" rings the kitchen bell. Cheers and bon appetit!

Hey Barbara S, let me ask you a question. Does it get any better than fish and chips and hazelnut ale? It's also great to hear that we met the dietary needs of your vegan daughter. I sincerely appreciate your business. Cheers and bon appetit!

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
