Have had numerous baked goodies (killer muffins) and coffee, but Half Moon has a wide array of other items as well. Comfortable interior, great location in the center of "Uptown", friendly efficient staff. Stop in and enjoy.

The food is always so fresh, very home cooked meals. The wait staff are ever so pleasant at any time of day or night. Take out orders are extremely quick. Gnocchi with sauce the best!!! Can't wait to go back....

We went there this past Saturday. We haven't been there for awhile. We ordered a small margarita pie as an appetizer. My girlfriend had the scallop appetizer as her entrée and I had the Angus burger, which comes with a salad. Everything was hot fresh and very good.

I discovered this place many years ago. I only wish it was closer to my home--I would be there three times a week. I have never had anything that I didn't love here. The menu is constantly changing, the food is 5 diamonds. I have been to some upscale places and this is on par or better. I have easily... More

Fresh food, great chef using simple and clean preparation. Special are my go to for dinner, yet you can never go wrong with the pizza and pasta dinner. It's BYOB, so it makes it a very economical dinner choice!
