About
Blue Moon Beach Grill is located at MP 13 in sunny, downtown Nags Head. We are just down the road from Jockey's Ridge in Surfside Plaza. We are open 7 days a week from 11:30 AM till 9:00 PM. Our goal is to provide each customer with a "once in a blue moon" dining experience.

We always check TripAdvisor when traveling. That is why we chose this restaurant. We had a big group of 13 adults and three children. We were treated very well and everyone loved their meals. I highly recommend this restaurant for dinner.

Because it was a bit crowded, we sat at the bar and ordered lunch there. Good move. The bartender was friendly and very attentive --we kinda felt guilty with all the refills on our iced teas she provided without asking. We really enjoyed the food,...More

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
