Our group of eight drives all the way from Corolla to Nags Head once each vacation to dine at Blue Moon, and it's well worth it. It's not easy to consistently get raves from eight people with differing tastes, but Blue Moon always does. We...More

Average service, average food, well above average price. I'll never go again. Wish I hadn't gone the one time I did. Big mistake.

Had lunch here four times last week. Excellent seafood and great staff. Our selections varied between puppy drum sandwich, shrimp "not a burger", and red snapper. So good and so fresh

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!
