We had their specials for the evening and they were amazing. We didn't have reservations (I would highly recommend them) and, fortunately, we had a high top table in the bar area. They had wonderful food selections including vegetarian choices (which I appreciate). Service was top notch and very friendly. I think this is one of the top restaurants in... More

Blue Moon Bistro is a must while in the Beaufort area. I would suggest making a reservation to ensure you get a table at this fine establishment. The ambiance is warm and inviting which is only surpassed by the service and the quality of the food. While it isnt true farm to table, the menu changes every month or so.... More

A local referred us to this restaurant, so glad that he did. Nice atmosphere & attentive service. Husband's triggerfish entrée was the highlight of our meals, if they have it for a special, don't pass it up!

this place is the best. it is always excellent. not cheap, but worth the price. we got the two fish specials for dinner--tuna over home made pasta (a new preparation for them) and the grouper over succotash. both were outstanding. service from Jessica was spot on. still our favorite place at the beach

Nice dinning atmosphere, maybe a little to dark, but pretty decor, and friendly staff. From what I observed it is a place frequented by locals , the patron seems to know everybody. My appetizer was a play on a classic dish shrimp and grits with a modern twist: there were some mushrooms which didn't overpowered the shrimps and some brandy... More

Did not have reservations so we had to eat at the bar. I had Shrimp Carbona and my wife had Pan Seared Grouper. Both were outstanding. Service was excellent. I would recommend that you make a reservation.

Make your reservations early and they fill up quickly especially in the summer. Food is exceptional! Very good wine list also. Servers go out of their way to handle any request!

Every year we visit the southern Outer Banks beaches, and it's a highlight of our week to dine here with our extended family. We call as soon as we get in to make a reservation for our larger party and are always delighted with traditional Blue Moon favorites like shrimp and grits martini and new dishes. The new dishes this... More

The dinner was absolutely wonderful. The scallops were the best I have ever had. The tuna was perfect and very fresh. The wine list was adequate for a small bistro. We had a wonderful evening.
