Wonder place to go eat. I found out this is a place the locals love to go. I would rate this as one of the top spots to go eat in the area.

My wife and I had a fabulous lunch today at the BMBG. She had the shrimp and grits. Excellent choice. Large serving which I had to help her finish. (Darn) I had the fish tacos which were made with fresh MahiMahi and were very good. Our waitress was very upbeat and knowledgeable. They have a good selection of craft beers... More

It was a good day for you Ricker58. You had fish tacos, you got to finish the shrimp and grits, and you topped it off with a Flying Dog Sea Salt Caramel. Sounds like the "hat trick". I thank you for your business. Cheers and bon appetit!! More

We went to the Blue Moon on a Saturday Night. It was Off Season, but still very crowded. We opted for sitting at the bar instead of waiting for a table. The menu options made it really hard to choose, because we wanted to try everything. We started with the calamari appetizer. It was wonderful. We had the crab cake... More

Based on the reviews, we tried this restaurant for lunch while in Nags Head. Everyone had different choices, Mahi Mahi BLT, cheese steak, fish tacos, brisket, and buffalo tuna bites. All were great and the service was friendly and prompt. I can't disagree that this is the best restaurant in Nags Head. We plan to have dinner here soon to... More

Another amazing meal at the BMBG. Have never gone wrong by ordering one of their daily specials. Very fresh seafood. Also enjoyed being able to watch the game during dinner but could ignore if wanted since no sound playing from the tv which was perfect. Great casual atmosphere. Very kid friendly. Staff is fantastic. My favorite after-dinner activity is viewing... More

John V.........thank you so much. I am glad you enjoyed your meal and the game. Repeating a great meal can be difficult because folks tend to have expectations that can be unrealistic. Thank you for your comments. Yes, the art is great.......we have so many super, local artists that contribute to our walls. We hope to see you again for... More

Love this place and always look forward to eating there. Fish tacos are a must along with the fish and chips. The fish and chips is a meal for two. Just a fun place to eat.

We went with my brother (years of Outer Banks resident) for lunch. Great sandwiches, fresh fish, good beer. A wonderful placefor lunch and conversation. Went back the next day. Still great fish, but the same sandwich was different and still good. Go figure!

Will S, Owner at Blue Moon Beach Grill, responded to this review

Hey Luigi T, thanks for the twofer visits. Your fish sandwich was likely different because our supply of fresh mahi ran out and we switched to another great, fresh fish. I am glad it was "still good". A special thanks to your brother for introducing us. Cheers and bon appetit!! More

Stopped in on the way to a business trip and was not disappointed. The calamari was great with the white wine lemon butter sauce and the buffalo shrimp were on point. The prices were good and the food and service were right on time.

Hey Jackattack7051, yes, fresh local is our foundation. I am delighted we did out jobs. Getting a "jack attack" in the form of a 5 star review is sure better than the alternative type "jackattack". We are delighted that you had a great visit. Cheers and bon appetit! More
