A unique little place, with delicious food! My husband ordered the chefs platter, and I had the perch we were not disappointed! Everthing was fresh and flavorful.

You don't want to miss this place. Excellent creativety in the menu, unique blend of flavores. I am not a vegetable eater but the two times I have been there the chef Jason has prepared the meal including vegetables sides and I ate all the vegetables

You can travel far and wide--I mean Chicago, Detroit and New York City--and not find a finer restaurant than The Blue Moon. It's almost shocking to realize that this place is in Ludington, Michigan.

Started with the Poke appetizer - OMG! We have been to Hawaii several times and have had LOTS of poke - but never had anything better than we had at Blu Moon. Then I had the 8 oz filet which came with fingerlings and grilled portabella - another WOW!! Hubby had seafood pad Thai and said it was also wonderful.... More

Casual indoor or outdoor dining. Great food and beer selection. Nice place to have lunch or a casual dinner after the beach.

This was our third time eating here and the first time we tried something other than the chef's choice. We were very pleased with the lamb meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes. Always a good place to eat!

The ambiance is nothing special, but the food is surprisingly good. Located in the heart of Ludington, this is one of the more specialty restaurants. Upstairs is rocking (and loud). Downstairs is more sedate. Both serve good variety.
