We were greeted and promptly seated and the waitress was very nice. I had a salad and wasn't impressed my daughter on the other hand loved her sandwich. In my opinion it is overpriced. I would not go back.

There is generally ample street parking all within a few blocks of Over the Moon. If you get lucky, you'll end up less than a block away. Street parking is metered, but the charges are next to nothing compared to most... More
