Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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.""

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "Another wondering experience at the Blue Moon. We took our neighbors for dinner and it was their first time and they both thought that The Blue Moon was the best in Rehoboth. We had the soft shell crabs and they were probably the best that I have had in a long time. The pork chops and the duck were both outstanding. If you have not tried The Blue Moon you need to because it is the the best in Rehoboth Beach."

  • "Blue Moon has the best food and service in Rehoboth. Our server Charles is always on point - he knows our wine, favorite food choices and always makes our experience wonderful. The food is always incredible from the menus regulars (that are anything but regular!!!) to the nightly specials. Wine menu is impeccable - from a simple Malbec to a high-end Shaffer Hillside Select. Five Stars for sure!!!!"

  • "Enjoyable evening with good food. Seated in the back area and it was a bit noisy. Would definitely go back. Still one of the best of the high end restaurants in Rehoboth ."

  • "We had dinner and the food was excellent!! The waiter and chef made accommodations for my gluten allergy. Our waiter Cole was very pleasant and offerd great advice for food choices.

  • "As always, great food, very attentive service; we got a great window table as I requested. Their Virginia raw oysters on the half-shell, with caviar, melon and jalapeno pepper are just extraordinary. This is a real gourmet place without the affectations and with great ambiance. We'll be back in October!"

  • "We were excited to try a new place. Being from DC, we appreciate good food and restaurants. The scene inside and outside was very strange, even for RB. They were playing Bette Midler and we both wanted to fall asleep. Food was mediocre at best. Service was good and friendly. When we go out, I like to enjoy new flavors that I cannot make at home. This place had none. Perhaps it was an off night? I wouldn't recommend."

  • "I have loved this neighborhood gem since I was a kid. I recently celebrated my birthday and engagement over brunch here and had a wonderful time. The tables are intimate and the staff are always courteous. The food is to die for (dinner and brunch). I love this place so much!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We've been to Blue Moon many times. This time they outdid themselves. We were hosting a newly married couple and asked the restaurant to give us a special table, and decorate it, using an item we left the day before. Everything was done extremely well and with a lot of care. Dinner was exceptional--food, service and ambiance. Our friends were delighted and so were we."

  • "We grabbed a reservation on opentable 15min before going. They seated us immediately and we had the most amazing dinner! Octopus for our app, duck and scallops for our entree. Delicious. Waiter was great, owner stopped by to introduce herself. Very nice experience!!!"

  • "We dine in Reho often, and we should have made it to Blue Moon sooner. I enjoy Salt Air and Henlopen Oyster, but they can be crowded. Back Porch is lovely (odd salads), Eden and Jam are nice, Hobo's is good, but Blue Moon is now my first choice. Service and food quality were excellent, place was busy but civilized, and conversation was easy. Our server (Matt?) really helped with recommendations and I enjoyed the (broad and practical) wine list. The albarino was excellent with dinner. We enjoyed the dining room and the paintings (which are hung in a unique way), and the just right lighting. The porch looked nice through the window/open wall panel. All in all, a wonderful dining experience for a fine birthday dinner. A new fav!"

  • "Our granddaughter is visiting from Virginia and she wanted to go to her favorite restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. Without a doubt you could not get better food, service in New York, San Francisco or London. The pork chop melts in your mouth and the duck breast is probably the best that my husband has ever had. The service like usual was outstanding and one could not ask for more. If you have not tried this restaurant you should really try it in the near future."

  • "from Joshua to Lisa to the Bartenders... 5 of us dined here, 3 first timer and us. Joshua-seated us promptly at a beautiful table. Lisa made a wonderful wine selection-something different than we usually get. the cheese & charcuterie board were perfect to share besides ordering the roasted oysters and octopus were amazing. My steak-done to PERFECTION again, as was the rockfish and chicken dishes moist and delightful. The roasted brussel sprouts perfect. After 3 bottles wine and wonderful company, service and atmosphere we decided to book for their next trip back to rehoboth. We ordered the Blue Moon Extravaganza dessert. Tim the owner stopped by and chatted with us for a minute, as even at 10 the place was packed. Wonderful experience!!!"

  • "This place is truly a hidden gem. A friend told us about the Blue Moon and recommended it highly. Other than the AAA book it wasn't listed in any of the tour books we received from the Rehoboth Chamber of Commerce or advertised in any of the other literature we had about Rehoboth. Fabulous food, outstanding service and a great atmosphere! The dinning room we were in was small and it got a bit loud as it filled up but not to the point of distraction. All the restaurants we dined in during our stay were good but this was hands down the best!"

  • "Companion and I left the adult children to fend for themselves while on vacation and squeezed in a last minute reservation here. We were not disappointed on any level. Great attention to all details, from the homey decor to the delicious strawberry rhubarb dessert, we were very impressed. Our entrees were delicious and we enjoyed the peace and quiet of a night to ourselves!"

  • "This is the fifth time i have visited and the food remains consistently excellent. There is a small bite of a unique tasting treat before appetizers and it is soooo terrific that you are tremendously disappointed when you find out you cannot order it. One and done.... But it is always tasty. Servers know their food and one should heed recommendations for the optimum doneness of each dish. Reservations always a good idea if you want to dine after 6 pm."

  • "The Blue Moon is always consistent. If you are a "regular" their reservation system knows your favorite waiter. The waiters know the food "inside and out" and always make recommendations about food specials, best wines or desserts. The dining room is pristine, the vases with roses always fresh, and the dining experience always perfect. My favorite "special occasion" restaurant."

  • "We were seated by the entrance door and every time the door opened a huge blast of steamy, hot air hit us. It was not pleasant. Great menu. One item described on the menu was not what was presented. There were six of us dinning. Most of my parties' food was very good. Scallops were undercooked. Server was not attentive and seemed put out at times."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Did Blue Moon knock my socks off? No. Was it a good/nice meal? Yes. Will I go again? Maybe. To be fair, we'll try it for dinner as we went this, our first time, for Sunday brunch. Our server was professional and pretty-much stayed on top of our needs. They did seat a VERY LOUD large party right next to us and it was sort-of awkward. I mean, I understand what Sunday brunch is all about - mimosas and recounting the night out before but....it got pretty loud/raucous to the point that we could no longer hear one another across the table. Not much the restaurant can do about that and, again, overall it was a pleasant experience. My watermelon salad was superb. French toast was a bit - meh."

All you could here from our table was mmmmmm and aaahhhhh! We looked at the dinner menu and have all decided we will definitely be back for dinner the next time we are in Rehobeth. We are all big foodies!!!! Enjoy."

Not the most favorable location, between two doors, one to the bar and the other to the kitchen……lots of traffic all night. However, still had a great experience and terrific food. Crabcake special was incredible! The famous blue moon dessert was the highlight of the evening, devoured. Yummy! Thanks so much for making everything terrific!"

  • "Blue Moon is known for its vibrant bar with nightly entertainment. So, after years of dining in Rehoboth Beach, I never seriously considered eating at the adjoining restaurant. After many recommendations from friends, we finally tried it. The food was truly gourmet and the service outstanding. Recommend it."

  • "The server totally refused to answer questions! My husband & I wanted the vegetarian dish. Although we appreciated the restaurant's willingness to accommodate dietary preferences, we were appalled at the expectation that we spend $28 for a meal with no description or ability to decide if we might like it. I cannot imagine anyone spending this amount for a meal described only as "meat" with no idea of what type of meat or sides would arrive. Our two guests also were interested in the $69 Chatearbriand and the waiter was similarly unhappy at being asked about its presentation (which, by the way, was rather nontraditional although it was delicious). The veggie entree was ok but lacked seasoning & a protein source -- frozen peas & carrots."

  • "Absolutely love dining here! We came back the following week and had the same meals! Everything from drinks...Roasted Oysters and the Charred Octopus were AMAZING! My Charred steak was done perfectly as was my husbands filet with foie gras... We tried the roasted brussel sprouts which were perfectly done! Bottle of wine-perfect date night.... Only wished we had room for the Moon Pie-but we were filled with such a wonderful meal-ONCE AGAIN!!!"
