    The food was a combination of fusion cooking and odd entree's. There were also steaks on the menu if you wanted to pay high 30's, low 40's. It is the first time I've had corn soup without corn. The soup was emulsified so that there were no solid kernels in the soup, with a lime flavored foam on top which I detested. A chicken dish was cook about four different way where dark meat was combined with white meat, then covered in skin and deep fried. It was laid out on a bed of unrecognizable vegetables and with teaspoon of mash potatoes. Prices were high with things like venison tar tar listed. Won't go back there again and spend almost $30 just for the chicken.

    We have eaten at the Blue Moon 15 times or more over the past few years and loved it. However this last visit Friday was a disaster. The crab cakes (special) were made with scallions which overpowered the crab meat. The soft shell crabs were drenched in cornmeal and were tasteless. There are too many other great restaurants in Rehoboth to waste you money on this one.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:(
