Tucked in a strip mall in Nags Head, the Blue Moon was an interesting first visit for lunch for hubby and I. He had a portobello sandwich with fries, which he pronounced "delicious," accompanied by draft Blue Moon beer--a favorite. He ordered a desert--key lime pie, and loved it. My choice was not as pleasing, sad to say. Appetizer asparagus... More

I am happy to hear that you will be back. Its good to hear your waiter, Nate was a delight. Sorry you didn't like your scallop/seaweed appetizer. We don't add salt to that dish and I can only guess the scallops were naturally salty from spending their life in salt water. Regardless, I am sorry you didn't enjoy the dish.... More

I rarely give excellent reviews but Blue Moon deserves it. I had been before for lunch and dinner was even better. It was a Saturday night so we did have to wait 30 minutes, it's a small place, but so worth it. We got blue cheese mussels at the bar and they were awesome. The garlic bread dipped in the... More

We got there about 6 on a tues. and waited about 20 minutes; it was actually a little less than what they told us it would be. It is a relatively small restaurant with limited seating so we might would have felt a little rushed if we hadn't of been in a rush anyway. But all and all the service... More

The food here was awesome. If you were just driving by you'd barely even know there was a restaurant back there, but man you should stop in! The crab cakes were to die for, the dessert and appetizers were equally as good!

There is definitely a well-oiled machine in place here during busy times, and we got in and ate a light dinner here one evening during our recent trip to the OBX.

We arrived on Saturday night around 7:30 in the off season. Hour and a half wait. So we came back on Sunday night around 5:00pm and were seated immediately.
