    Great service, delicious food - VERY loud environment on a Saturday night, felt very overstimulating. If you are sensitive to loud places, consider going at another time/day.

    The food was fine and so is the service. The portions were very small, and generally and comparatively not worth the price of the bill.

    You're paying for the view. The crab cake and pasta were pretty good but the shrimp and crab salad was poor. 2 of us ordered it and both felt the same- very bland. Doesnt help that there isnt s n p on the table. 3 also got the chowder which was also pretty good but portion size for the price borderline

    I don't usually write reviews, but I won't go to Moonshadow again. I have been there so many times but this time was the worst. we had a reservation and asked for a ocean view and made us wait with was fine but we still didn't have a good view, even though the other tables were empty. But the worst part was the service and our waitress who was very rude and condescending.
