Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I have been dining here for years. Everything was as expected, fantastic."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "We live in Lewes and have been coming to Rehoboth for dinner for many years. The Blue Moon has been around for a long time and at first it was good, then not so good. Apparently it changed hands 5 or 6 years ago and the new owners have really upped the level. Our server told us the chef was one of the owners. We didn't see him but did meet 2 of the other owners during the night. They are obviously passionate about the place and that shows in the staff. We have tried all the new restaurants that come and go, but it is really hard to beat the Blue Moon now that's it better than ever. Hope it stays that way."

  • "Been a while since we dined at the Blue Moon. The minute we walked in the door the staff was like we were there just yesterday. The place was lively and the tables are close, but the table next to us was delightful and fun. Not really known for steaks but I have to say it was the best I have had in a very long time."

  • "The Blue Moon is the best restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. Chief Lion always does a great job with the menu and the food is always delicious and you will not be disappointed. The chicken and pork chop are both outstanding!!"

  • "Wonderful food! Beet appetizer outstanding- could have been my meal. Delicious rockfish. Ordered a bottle of wine, before I saw the cocktail list. Next time... Terrific service to boot. Will return"

  • "This was a special occasion celebration (two birthdays). The five of us arrived at 11 am and were promptly seated at a very comfortable table/booth. The server was terrific-- the $5 Bloody Marys arrived quickly and she was great about pacing the appetizers and main courses. Two in our party started with the Yogurt dish-- it was delicious. Two had eggs Benedict, also wonderful and served inexplicably with two homemade sausages that were a pleasant surprise. One had steak and eggs-- eggs scramble and probably flank steak, but so tender it could have been filet. Everyone had a good time and we left very satisfied and ready for a walk on the beach."

  • "Another wonderful meal at the blue moon. The sweet breads app. was very good. The rib eye steaks were wonderful as usual, one was a bit over overcooked for MED. Rare, but was just fine, Scallops were very large and a plentiful serve with 5 huge ones on the plate! The porch was a little cold, they just have had the heat turned on before we sat down, but it warmed up after a while."

  • "Went for Sunday Brunch and will definitely go back. The food and the service was great. The only downside was the very close quarters. It was worth it for the meal, but it was a bit tight."

  • "We love Blue Moon. The food is always fit for a foodie but we were disappointed this time around. First, we were seated in the small back dining room. It is like sitting in the middle of a very busy intersection - not nice at all. Our appetizers were to die for and my husband's meal was fantastic. Mine - not so much. I know scallops are meant to be medium rare (we come from the land of New England scallops, we KNOW scallops) but mine were charred (read burned) on one side and way too rare in the middle. We had waited a long time for our entrees so we let the server know and made the best of it. I will say that Blue Moon was very understanding and took my entrée off the bill. Server was fantastic."

  • "This was our second visit here. The Tuesday tasting menu changes each visit. The selections were fabulous the first visit. This visit while not as tasty was interesting. The restaurant is rather cramped for seating but interesting decor and the inside seating is lovely. Service was uneven."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Food here is always well prepared. You can tell there is a real chief preparing your entree. Only problem I have is the tables are really close."

  • "That's the conclusion I've arrived to as to every time I've been to the Blue Moon Restaurant. The food has always been good, and consistent. You know what that means. That means it's always been good."

  • "Blue Moon once again does a marvelous job. Hands down, the best place in RB for brunch. We enjoyed the beignets with fresh strawberry sauce as a warm up with fresh coffee and then had delicious Eggs Benedict and the Duck burger, which was splendidly different for a brunch item. It was torally yum! The service, which can be spotty at times, was excellent this morning. We will be back once the weather warms up (and the crowds return)"

  • "Lisa C was our server and she did an amazing job. Our table enjoyed every course and we have raved about the dinner with friends. It has been over 5 years since we had dinner at The Blue Moon (maybe longer) and had heard that things were not to par. Well, that is not true! We so look forward to going back to The Blue Moon and hopefully In Season dining will be just as wonderful."

  • "Every time I come to the Blue Moon, I look forward to my meal and never am I disappointed. This trip was no exception, from the hurricane cocktail offered to celebrate mardi gras, to the yummy foie gras never over-seasoned as it sometimes is, to the crazy blue moon bombe I finally had for dessert, a delicious meal."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Rehoboth Beach for Valentine's Day. We had dined at The Blue Moon when we were married in October. We had such a great experience, we wanted to go back. From the unique menu selections, to the wine list, we were impressed again. We will certainly return on our subsequent visits to Rehoboth Beach."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We come to Rehoboth a little more than annually. Blue Moon has been one of our top choices. Hubby had a great meal - Chicken and Pecan Pie. I had fried green tomatoes (great) and scallops (sandy). Server noticed that I ate (maybe) 1.5 of the 4 scallops but didn't ask. I know it's hard to control sand but it really did affect my experience. However, she did notice that I didn't eat my yuzu dessert and took it off the bill. Wasn't necessary but it was nice. She was spotty in her service. Sometimes "johnny on the spot" and other times, we were looking for her."

  • "It just doesn't get any better than the Blue Moon! The lamb is the best you will find anywhere and the filet was just perfect. The wine selection is top notch but my favorite dish was the new lobster pot pie appetizer. In a word, yummy!!"

  • "Every bite of the food is nirvana for your mouth! It is, quite simply, delicious perfection! The presentation is beautiful as well, and when coupled with the excellent service, makes for a wonderful evening!! Who could want for more?0-"

  • "Our group of 4 had tickets for a Clear Space Theater production at 7pm and decided to make 5pm dinner reservations across the street at the Blue Moon restaurant, for the first time. The menu had something for everyone, and they had a great wine and drink selection, too. Our 4 different entrees were all delicious, and we had room for an incredible dessert called something like "The Bomba" that can easily be shared by two or more. Our server was great, too, and we made our show with 10 minutes to spare. We plan to return to the Blue Moon next time we dine in Rehoboth Beach, DE."

  • "Kitchen definitely has not lost a beat after the winter hiatus. Scallops were outstanding. My only complaint with Blue Moon is the proximity of the tables in the back room. Makes it hard to have any intimacy. But other than that, a great atmosphere."

  • "Dined here at one of our local favorites Saturday Night. Early reservation. This was a picture perfect dinner. We sat along the back wall overlooking the entire restaurant and we were able to see the fire going on. The servers were fantastic. Suggested another wine-other than what we have had in the past! Wonderful... They paced us as-we were relaxing and enjoying the meal. My steak-Pittsburg-rare was RIGHT ON! My husband's filet was perfect also... The sides cauliflower mash and brussel sprouts- delicious! The salad and charred octopus were done just right! Even the dessert was perfect Creme Brulee. Another amazing meal at the Moon! Even the cocktails in the bar-were right on! GREAT NIGHT!"

  • "The best brunch in Rehoboth Beach!! Without a doubt Blue Moon is the best and only place in Rehoboth Beach to have brunch. The lobster was excellent and we both really enjoyed our meal."

  • "We went here for New Year's Eve, as a group of six. The food was fantastic, if a bit pricey. The restaurant was pretty overwhelmed and they had packed tables into every single inch of space - to the point that a diner at another table had to get up to let us out of our seats. The service was a bit slow and pretty informal, kind of diner style ("Who had the steak? Pass this down"), which for a $100 prix fixe menu is not really appropriate. In the end, the food made up for the service. We will go back but probably on a less busy night."
