Love, love, love this place. The food, the service, being on the water -- always wonderful. The most difficult thing is deciding what to order because everything is really fantastic. Be prepared to spend some money, though -- the food is pricey, but worth it.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal on the outdoor deck, from the start with fresh bread, to grilled octopus, then beet salad, to the enter of fresh fish, concluding with amazing key lime pie we thoroughly enjoyed The Blue Moon Fish Company! A can't miss when in the FT. Lauderdale area!

One of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of eating at. Every attention to detail is taken care of, from the valet parking to the attentive hostess to the knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. Nothing is too much trouble at Blue moon and the setting on the inter-coastal is unbeatable. The food is excellent and if you love... More

Unaware of the valet parking near the front door, I pulled into a metered space across the side street from the restaurant. Be aware that these metered spaces have signs claiming they are monitored "24/7", and that they do not take dollar coins. Well, actually, they do take dollar coins; you just don't get any credit for putting them in... More

The location here is best. Nothing beats dining outside on the inter-coastal at night watching the boats cruise by. There is a nice bar here and a nice cocktail menu. The food is very good and has a nice assortment of fine dining.

We had dinner at Blue Moon Fish Company this week. The food was very good, and the wines were all excellent. Our server was very attentive and helpful. The crab cakes were among the best we have ever had. The restaurant is pricey for mid-range budgets, but worth a visit if you can afford it.

This place was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. We were seated by the boardwalk and had a mostly unobstructed view of the boat traffic on the Intracoastal. We were there for lunch and found the food to be of a very high quality. The service was good but my partner found it a little slow. I... More

Maybe it was serendipitous. We had dinner at the Blue Moon the night of the first Supermoon in early November. The restaurant is everything the reviews have already said, and more. Service was excellent. We were seated immediately by a window overlooking the intercoastal waterway and a bridge. During the evening, we were entertained by the river traffic, of all... More

Can't believe I've been in South Florida for 3.5 years and never tried this place. Great outdoor dining right on the Intracoastal with white linen table cloths! Excellent, professional and friendly service. Two for one on lunch entrees. Tasty (but naughty) lobster bisque, beautiful mahi entree and a heavenly (shared) cheesecake to finish the much bigger lunch than anticipated. Possibly... More

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.
