The Moonstone Bar and Grill is a homey restaurant with an extensive menu of seafood, chicken, and steak. We found the food tasty but not exceptional. No salads or greens were offered with main dishes only rice and pasta. When a complete meal was ordered...More

We have eaten here many times, and are never disappointed. This time was Sunday brunch, and both my husband and myself were pleased with the taste and appearance of our plates. It’s always a bit of a wait to get in, but well worth it!

Nice place, lovely view. Nice ambience. Pretty Pricey. Not a ton of vegetarian options . I had the pasta primavera it was average. It was super convenient to my motel so it had that going for it. They don’t take reservations.

The food was solid - not outstanding, but good. The bouillabaisse had a lot of really nice seafood and was quite nice. The shrimp pasta and the swordfish were pleasing. The wine was good but the service could be a little better.
