    The Blue Moon has the best brunch in Rehoboth Beach. The crab cakes and the turkey burger where both outstanding and the four of us enjoyed ourselves. It is always a pleasure to go to the Blue Moon for any meal and we that live in Rehoboth Beach full time are very lucky to have the Blue Moon here. If you have not tried the Blue Moon you need to give it a try.

    Blue Moon is as special and as rare as its' name. My husband and I always have dinner here when in the area and have never been disappointed! The host, the service (Charles is our fav), the food and the entire vibe of the place is fantastic! We tavel a lot in the U.S and Europe, etc., and the Blue Moon is in the best company of the very best restaurants there are, especially for the price and quality.

    Blue Moon continues its winning ways with creative preparations and terrific executions. The service was very good and the server even returned to provide a more in-depth answer regarding a preparation. The oyster appetizers were both wonderful, although the addition of the hot pepper to the raw oysters did overwhelm the sweet flavor of the oyster. The Asian salmon was multi-layered in complexity and delicious. The tuna entree featured very fresh tuna. After dinner coffees were fun and before dinner cocktails were crisp and excellent. Only service draw back, the server did not know to allow the red wine to breathe.

    Blue Moon is without a doubt the best in Rehoboth. Not only is the food and service outstanding but they make you feel like you are home from the time you walk into the door until you leave. The pork chop, the duck breast are two of our favorites. Everything on the menu is worth trying. If you have not gone to the Blue Moon you are missing a great treat.

    We have been dining at the Blue Moon for years for all our special occasions and are never disappointed. Although the service was good, our waiter was not as attentive as we are used to. We will miss Leah. We are looking forward to the "Tasting Tuesdays" over the winter. The best food with wine paring for the price anywhere.

    This was our first time at Blue Moon. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. From the warm welcome to the last course, everything was perfect. He started with the roasted oysters, and I had the burrata. Both were delicious. From there we went for the rack of lamb and rib eye filet - both were cooked perfectly, succulent and more than ample. We finished with a cheese plate and the chocolate bread pudding, and sent both plates back empty. The service was wonderful - our waiter was attentive, personable and funny. And did I mention the sides? The pureed cauliflower and blackened brussel sprouts were very good. We will definitely be back!

If you have not tried Blue Moon for Brunch I would give it a try. The soft shell crabs were so delicious and they are probably the last for the season. Thanks for another wonderful dining experience.

    We went to Blue Moon for our anniversary. They honored the reservation time with no wait. The room while a little small and thus tight was still very pleasant. The wait staff was prompt and helpful (e.g., menu choices and wine selection). The food was great. The only drawback is that the restaurant is in downtown Rehoboth Beach and it was Saturday night. Parking is impossible, but I found a space after some searching. and it was worth it.

    Very quaint and romantic while being casual not stuffy. We dined in September so not sure how it is in summer. My Blue Moon martini was a great start and not too sweet! My husband's grapefruit martini was very strong and very good! We Shared the fried green tomatoes app & loved it. Prior to it coming out we were given a complimentary mini appetizer of something delicious wrapped in bacon and a soft, tasty roll each with sweetened butter! My duck dinner was cooked perfectly and was superb! My husband loved his halibut but was a little jealous after tasting my duck. Service was perfect! Almost went back the next night but were only there for 2 nights. Bar area is primarily gay.

    The Tuesday tasting menu is even better than ever this year--you can choose 3 or 4 courses and the wines were very good. No restaurant does a better job with lamb than the Blue Moon. It truly is a neighborhood gem restaurant and has been one since my first visit in 1982!

    I would highly recommend this restaurant weather you are vacationing here or, like me, are a local. There is something on the menu for everyone to enjoy, weather they prefer meat or are a vegetarian. If you are a "foodie" this is the place to dine. I would highly recommend the rack of lamb and pureed potatoes. The desserts are fabulous, as well.

    We were received very graciously and our table was thoughtfully sprinkled with small, glistening hearts (wedding anniversary). The restaurant is tastefully appointed; customers are somewhat shoe-horned in, as tables are close together. Because of one noisy group close-by, we were a bit disturbed. Perhaps an earlier than 7PM reservation may mitigate the noise quotient. Overall. we had an enjoyable evening...including sharing the Bombe dessert.

The apts were delightful and tasty-Octopus done perfectly. Dad loved the fresh baked breads. The 2 steaks perfectly done, as was the Rockfish-done PERFECTLY and with out the items as requested. The Lamb was also perfect. The BOMB for dessert was heavenly. Mom and Dad are still talking about how wonderful the Blue Moon was and totally enjoyed themselves.

    Went on a Wednesday night as we took a few days during the week to go to Rehoboth. We always enjoy the Blue Moon, and again this time, the food and service were really good. The problem was the group of eight who were seated behind us. And by eight, I mean four adults and four kids under four years. BAD AMBIANCE. Our reservation was for 7PM, and fortunately the group left at about 7.45 with only a moderate amount of kid noise during the 45 minutes. I know parents like to take their kids out with them, but still when we go out as a couple and drop a couple hundred on a meal and wine, we'd like to do it without the kids.
