Another couple at the B&B recommended Blue Moon Café and it most certainly did not disappoint. We loved sitting in the courtyard on an unusually warm February Sunday and enjoying a lovely meal. Everything was fresh and delicious, truly tasting homemade. The service was excellent. Blue Moon Café was our favorite casual meal of the weekend. We even considered coming... More

The food is always good from salads and sandwiches to main dishes. Always creative and very tasty. Inside is lovely but best seating is outside near the free flowing stream.

Great place for salads and sandwiches on a budget. Good local feel and friendly service (though not always fast).

Had dinner here and the food was very good, burgers, hummus plate and artichoke dip. Only issue was eating in the dark as there were no outdoor lights or table candles to see by...

I liked this place. It had a quiet ambience and was fairly low key. The menu was quite extensive, with a variety of vegetarian options. A friend was taken aback by the fact that they bake their burgers, but he ordered a sandwich as well, which he really liked.

This was a good spot. Cozy, nice atmosphere, great service, excellent beer. Would have given higher rating if cleaner. Kinda shabby, pretty dirty. I had a coffee stout. Really good greens/salad, 'bean dip'.

Had dinner here. The food and service were both great. The menu includes some fairly creative items but also standard dishes.

The Blue Moon is a fun place to share a meal and a beer with friends. Relax outside under the trees by the Town Run when the weather is nice. Parking is free across the street at Shepherd University most weekends. Gluten free and vegetarian dishes as well. Chicken Avocado salad, soups and quiche are my favorites.

We visited the Blue Moon Café for lunch and a week later, tried it for dinner. Both times, great food, excellent service in a quaint dining area. For lunch I tried the Turkey Gobbler which was very tasty. For dinner I was torn between the Meatloaf entrée and the Meatball Hoggie....the hoggie was really good. Liz was our waitress who... More

The Kimster and the Pilgrim are perennial favorite sandwiches. Even better are the cheerful and friendly servers and staff who work hard to provide great service. A gem in Shepherdstown!
