  • "Great food. Been there many times. This was the worst service ever."

  • "Fourth time eating at Blue Moon and ALWAYS have a wonderful meal. The burrata with corn salsa was outstanding and the salmon perfect. My only issue is with the service. Waiter seemed very disinterested and never came back to pour our wine. Another waitress had to clear our table and bring dessert. Still, well worth a visit !!"

  • "The restaurant choices at Rehoboth Beach are limited but this one is a good one. The menu is typical of other decent restaurants in the area (all feature beet salads, duck breast and imported fish such as cod, haddock and rock fish) where no local seafood is featured. Why not have flounder or other local fish? Yes, crab is featured in many restaurants but is it MD crab or imported from the Far East? The food here was well prepared and we enjoyed our selection of fish from MA and the Pacific."

  • "Charming, quiet, and romantic atmosphere located in the middle of town. Beautiful vases of fresh roses added to the decor. Good cocktail and wine list. Ribeye filet done perfectly. Waitstaff very attentive and timely. Quite a neighborhood gem. Looking forward to trying different dishes upon my next visit."

  • "Blue Moon was a wonderful treat. We went there for dinner to celebrate our 5th anniversary and had appetizers through dessert, all of which were remarkably good. The food was prepared perfectly, the ambiance delightful, wonderful presentation. Our waiter, Cole, was wonderful and his knowledge of the food and its preparation and ingredients impeccable. He was very attentive and friendly. We really liked him. Would recommend the Blue Moon to everyone and hope to one day revisit it."

  • "Enjoyed another wonderful evening at the Blue Moon where the food is outstanding and the service is the best in Rehoboth. The rock fish and the chicken will both just melt in your mouth. If you have not tried the Blue Moon you are really missing the best in Rehoboth."

  • "Love to visit Blue Moon on our annual trip to Rehoboth Beach. Perhaps the best ambiance and great fine beach restaurant feel around. Terrific wine list and a menu filled with old favorites like seared scallops and duck. Crab cakes were special on our night there. We will keep coming back for sure."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "After talking my husband to going to the fish eatery, because I Telly did not want slaw and French fries, we came to Blue Moon. It surpassed my expectations. The chef here is certainly a true foodie. All was fresh, deliciously prepared,perfectly matched ingredients,and beautifully served. Wine list was notable,too. A little pricey, but this should be your one special night to done on vacation. Although the fish house probablywould have cost almost as much. No slaw or fries here!"

  • "Blue Moon is always list to visit while in Rehoboth 9-10 times/year. We invited friends on a "double date" and we hoped that they would become Blue Moon affecionados as well. Unfortunately, our server must have been having a bad night (benefit of the doubt). We'll be back, but our friends who are in the restaurant biz will not. Guess you don't have a second chance to make a first impression:("

  • "Dined at 9:30 pm on a Saturday in August, arriving to a full, busy dining room with a show in the bar area. We were seated immediately at a too small table (not just us - tables looked a bit small) and quickly greeted by our server. From start to finish, the meal and the evening were terrific. The martini was cold and well-mixed, the food was delicious (beet salad, cheddar grits, salmon, tuna carpaccio), and the service could not have been better, e.g., my water glass was never empty, and when we left the table between appetizer and dinner to go catch a bit of the show in the bar, the server came to retrieve us because he didn't want our good to get cold! What a great guy, and a great evening."

  • "This was the first time my husband and I have eaten at Blue Moon, we had an an amazing dinner and the waite staff was terrific. We come to Rehoboth all the time, so I am not sure how we have missed this place all these years. Loved the after dinner show, the impersonators were so amazing, Will be back soon"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the restaurant. It was a rainy Saturday night, just my wife and I and we were going to be late due to the busy traffic in Rehoboth Beach. I called and they held our table. The meal was wonderful"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Great restaurant. From the minute we walked in everyone was very welcoming. Service was friendly and attentive, food was fabulous - so many choices - as everything looked and was so good. Go to the bar where the entertainment was after, a lot of fun. If I'm ever back in the area, will definitely go back!"

  • "Blue Moon is the place to experience fine food and excellent service in a lovely setting. If you want to impress guests from out of town, bring them here."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We have a very nice dining experience every time we go to Blue Moon. Despite being there at the height of a very busy evening, servers were friendly and efficient throughout the evening. Fig salad appetizer and rockfish entree were standouts at our table. They also do a very nice cheese course after dinner. We live far away but look forward to our visit every year - we never bother looking at any of the other restaurant choices!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Each time we have dined at the Blue Moon we always have been amazed and the consistent excellent quality of the food and the service. This time was by far no exception. We were a party of 5 and this was the first time for our friends. From the appetizers to the entrees and to dessert, each course was exceptional. I had the Filet while the rest of our group had either the salmon or the rock fish, all of which were prepared to perfection. Our server, Lisa, went out of her way to make our evening a great memory."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "It was a busy night at Blue Moon and they kept us waiting for 15 minutes despite our reservation. While this can happen anywhere, there seemed to be no impulse to apologize or speed things up a bit once we sat down. In fact, we sat there for another 10 minutes before anyone offered us a glass of water. Once things got going, the food and service were very good and the ambience dynamic. We'll be back, but we'll hope for a more timely experience."

  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants in Rehoboth Beach. Usually the food is delicious, but on this visit a couple of dishes were fair. Perhaps it was an off night. Service was great as usual. Fun, festive atmosphere."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Server had a bad attitude. The menu has gotten stale. And the quality of some of the dishes was not up to standard you would expect from the Blue Moon."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Sorry to say that Blue Moon has slipped off my "must go to" list when in Rehoboth. Had it not been for the wonderful conversation my spouse and I had with the couple dining next to us, the night would have been a total disaster. The service was luke warm, the noise level was horrendous due to a performance in the bar and the food was acceptable but not up to the usual standards at the Blue Moon. It makes me wonder if they are resting on their laurels??? After twenty plus years of frequenting the restaurant I think it is time to seek another "must go to.""
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We go here at least twice on our visits to Rehoboth. The food is consistently the best in Rehoboth, in our opinion. The service is always excellent. Sometimes the noise is excessive, as it was on this visit. However, it was on a weekend, summer evening."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The food and service here was amazing. I had the Capicola Eggs Benedict with a side of bacon and it was outstanding. There is so much complexity to this dish, you taste every element and they all sing together harmoniously in your mouth. You will be getting two meats already in the Benny, but it is so worth getting a side of their incredible bacon. My wife got the crab scramble and that too was incredible. It was filled with delicious fresh crab and it too was complex and bursting with flavor. The potatoes that came with both dishes were outstanding. I'm someone that almost always puts hot sauce and ketchup on my potatoes and these were so good, they needed nothing. All of the staff here was super friendly and attentive."

  • "The perfect place to spend our wedding anniversary! The oysters were delicious, The filet and the veal chop were incredible, and the Moon Pie was to die for! And let's not forget the champagne, house cosmos and wine! My favorite place for consistently excellent food and service!"
