If you are dining outside the view is beautiful. The food is pretty good but pricey.I usually get a sandwich and fries which comes to about $15 which I would not normally pay but the view is worth it.

This was a nice place to have a meal out on the deck. We just had a light meal, but enjoyed the crab cakes and clam chowder. The service was a little slow when we visited.

People were nice, service good. Was there on a week-end and seated outside within 20 minutes. Not a lot of variety of salad dressings. Calamari and clam chowder excellent.

Eating on the deck is fabulous. Nothing quite like watching and listening to the waves crash while enjoying some great food and conversation.

We take pride in our excellent service and being a kid-friendly establishment with a free toy for every child. While we love pets, we do ask that you leave your pets at home when dining at Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill.
