You are paying a bit more here for the view, but it is worth it. To eat on the water and watch million dollar yachts cruise by is very relaxing. The food was VERY good and the portions are HUGE. My wife had the scallops and loved them. I had the steak and it was also amazing. We had some... More

Absolutely the best spot for lunch on the water. We've been coming here the last 6 years and love it. Amazing service, views and food. Right now they are offering a lunch special: buy 2 drinks (sodas count) and you receive one lunch entree for FREE! Favotites: the fish tacos, Milanese chicken, lobster roll, and fresh fish sandwich.

Had a really nice dinner here. We were offered seating indoors or "by the water" and when they say "by the water" they're not kidding! It's right ON the water! Was nice watching the boats. It was a little chilly that night so depending on time of year (we were there in early Feb) a light jacket or sweater would... More

Have been to this restaurant twice and will be going soon for a third time. Waiter was great, recommending wine and oysters for us. Also discreetly decorated by dessert plate with a happy birthday message. Great seafood. Best I've had in this area.

The title says it all. Each of us in a party of four had a different starter and fish. All were top notch, and commensurate with the hefty prices. Sitting rail side on the inter-coastal waterway was delightful. BUT, the restaurant seating is very tightly packed, making it so loud we could barely hear one another, which limited our enjoyment...

"If you are not paying attention" The bill already includes the gratuity. One bill shows the total amount with their gratuity. The other is the one you manually write in the gratuity total, and signature. I chose cash for the gratuity. Wrote cash, wrote in the now new total amount and signed my name. My bank account showed what I... More

Our first experience with blue moon was with the hostess Eileen. She was phenomenal, going out of her way to make sure we had a great table etc. Then we were greeted by the best waiter ever, Ralph . He had such a great personality, and made excellent food and wine recommendations. Food was amazing. Biggest, most tender and best... More

We, (about 16 of us), had a going-away lunch here for a coworker. The food and the service was great, and the views of the Intercoastal from the outside dining was really nice. They have valet parking, which solves the parking issue. And their desserts are really good too!

As a solo I always eat at the bar. Great atmosphere and lovely people to converse with. I had the Mahi Mahi....superb....very romantic setting, ask for a waterside table in the evening. Make reservations!

Description
Recipient of numerous awards for culinary excellence, the restaurant is known as one of the finest dining establishments on America’s east coast serving fresh seafood by the waterway. It is a well-known fact that Blue Moon offers the finest waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale and is in the top tier of acclaimed restaurants within the entire South Florida region.

Blue Moon's elegant interior dining room is decorated in authentic Art Deco style with high ceilings, inlaid wood, carved accents and frosted art glass partitions featuring an underwater theme.

There's nothing quite as magical as enjoying an expertly crafted gourmet meal on the Blue Moon terrace where the boats pass by in graceful motion throughout the day and night.
