Valentines Day, went early to beat the crowd. Always a great place to eat, Philly cheesesteak is delicious !!! Plenty of good food choices,I've never gotten anything that wasn't great tasting. Staff is always friendly and attentive. It's a popular place for a very good reason !

We ate dinner here late on a Sunday evening and were surprised and delighted by tasty food and well-concocted drinks. The fish tacos and shrimp and grits had us wondering if we could swing by for lunch the next day! There's a wall of art for sale by local artists. We enjoyed our dinner!

I found Blue Moon Beach Grill looking on my GPS, it had some good reviews, so we gave it a try. NO disappointments whatsoever. Portobello mushroom with Parmesan crust in a tomato risotto was delicious. The fish tacos are very good with the grilled fish. Such a fresh taste along with the black beans, which had a hint of heat... More

We've been here many times over the past 4 or 5 years and it never disappoints. We always try to eat at the bar...the waitstaff is always top shelf, the sea food fresh, and the vibe hits that sweet spot of friendly conversation with others, reasonable prices, and creative cuisine. Yeah, it's in a strip center with an eclectic mix... More

Our first visit and so glad we came. Our server was very helpful and cheerful, and checked on us often. I had the encrusted tuna and it could not have been better, the risotto was out of this world and the crab bisque was the best. My husband had the mixed seafood, the clams were beautifully battered and the blackened... More

Came here for dinner between shifts at work. Quickly got some amazing service at the bar by the attentive and friendly waitstaff. The entire restaurant was clean and classy while still having the charismatic beach flare. Good small selection of draft beer including a few NC brews. The food was some of the best seafood I've had since moving to... More

Thanks Bryan K, I think "classy while still having the charismatic beach flare" is an awesome description. We work hard to be a restaurant for our locals......that's why we are open in February. The locals helped launch our business and we don't think you can be a "locals restaurant" and close up shop in the winter. Thanks for your business... More

We started going to the Blue Moon Grill about 5 years ago after Southern Living mentioned it in an article. The article highlighted the Shrimp Not a Burger sandwich. Five years later and that's all I have ever had there, but I can tell you, as we found out again today, that sandwich may just be the best sandwich I... More

This place is small and obviously very popular with the locals. It is in the corner of a small strip mall. There is a bar where you can wait. The food was good but not particularly outstanding. Service was good.

I am so glad we were told about this place. The restaurant is small and always busy. The food is very good. Lots of different items ordered in our party - 12 of us. Everyone had wonderful things to say about what they got. The staff is very nice!
