    My husband I were in Beaufort visiting for the weekend and wanted to try this restaurant. We sat at a high top table in the bar and enjoyed a delicious meal. I had the pistachio crusted grouper and my husband had the mussels. Both were prepared perfectly. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    We've been here several times for dinner, and the food has been consistently excellent. Our only complaint is that there are very few vegetarian appetizers or salads, and no vegetarian entrees. I'm pescatarian, so I get by, but have few overall choices. Not recommended for vegetarians or vegans.

    Blue Moon BistroResponded on October 28, 2022Thank you for giving us your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve and greatly appreciate you helping us to do so. We do have entree’s that Chef Jayson is happy to prepare for any vegetarian/vegan upon request. We plan on adding an entree that is friendly to vegetarians in the future! Thank you again and we look forward to having you dine with us again soon! Ashley Amaral
