I did not expect to find fresh sushi in Ludington so this place was a pleasant surprise. We tried two different sushi rolls and they were both delicious. They have a $7.00 sushi roll menu that is a really great deal.

This restaurant has quirky decor, a little bit of everything. So it has a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Everyone here is very friendly and the service is good. Their menu is unexpected and has some interesting ideas. We were not especially pleased with our dinners, they just weren't what we had been hoping they'd be. Even though it's not one of... More

I had a dinner hosted here for business, and I was blown away by the drink and food. I wasn't expecting much from a sushi standpoint being in Ludington, but the sushi was fantastic. We had the big sampler platter for appetizers plus some bang bang shrimp that was amazing. My steak was one of the best steaks I have... More

The sushi is of the highest quality and prepared in a separate temperature controlled kitchen. The Rainbow roll is my absolute favorite. On this visit my husband had the filet mignon and he said it was the best one he's EVER had anywhere. We also had the goat cheese appetizer, which was amazing and full of flavor (goat cheese, balsamic... More

Extreme high pricing for what you get. Sampler dinner offered of very small and rationed portions. This eatery is overrated.

You don't want to miss this place. Excellent creativety in the menu, unique blend of flavores. I am not a vegetable eater but the two times I have been there the chef Jason has prepared the meal including vegetables sides and I ate all the vegetables

You can travel far and wide--I mean Chicago, Detroit and New York City--and not find a finer restaurant than The Blue Moon. It's almost shocking to realize that this place is in Ludington, Michigan. The upper deck is great when the weather is temperate and sidewalk tables allow you to have your dog at your side. Fantastic variety of absolutley... More

Then I had the 8 oz filet which came with fingerlings and grilled portabella - another WOW!! Hubby had seafood pad Thai and said it was also wonderful.... More
