    Mother’s Day’s menu food was good but they were out of several items. It appeared that the chefs were not prepared for the number of patrons. Our reservation was at 1:15 and they were out of the crab Benedict and no shrimp for the salad Cocktails were out as well

    If you’re searching for great dining in Beaufort, you have to experience Blue Moon. We’re local, and we never tire of the delicious food and outstanding staff. The menu is always interesting, with several staples that we crave - tomato tart, lobster bisque, and we always love the fresh catch. Finish your meal with beignets! One more thing - Blue Moon is a team, from Ashley at the front of the house, Lara overseeing the bar, and of course the kitchen magicians Jayson and Josh. Beaufort dining at its best!

    This was my third visit to Blue Moon and it is still my favorite place to eat. The atmosphere is happy. The food is so unbelievably good with beautiful presentation. I had scallops with grits and pork belly. It was cooked perfectly and so delicious! You need to save room for the desserts. They are excellent! I always go with the beignets. Excellent food, drinks staff and atmosphere!!

    Our group of 6 were all pleased with the restaurant! We ordered brussels sprouts, shrimp and grits starters as well as a Caesar salad. Entrées ordered, included the maple, seared scallops, the filet, the elk and the shrimp pasta. Each and everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our waitress was very patient with us because we were unsure of what we wanted at first. She guided us And made suggestions helpful! The noise level was energetic, but it was just what we were looking for because we can be loud group when we all get together. It was our first time there and we would definitely come back when we’re in Beaufort next.

    Ashley, We had a fabulous dinner last night. It was such a treat to be back at our favorite restaurant. Perfect timing with the new menu too! Shari had the filet and I had the elk. The presentation and flavors on both were outstanding. We especially enjoyed Lara’s new twist on our favorite cocktail- the Manhattan. New favorite drink for sure! Steve

    This restaurant has great food but it also has a cheery wait staff that is very knowledgeable about the specials and the cocktail list. The atmosphere is quiet, especially compared to other restaurants close by, the seats and table heights are perfect! The place is very clean.

    The best meal I have had in this area - and I have been here since 2003. Everything was delicious. Main course portion sizes are a bit small. If you are hungry get an appetizer and plan to have desert too. The baked brie was a very good appetizer for a table of four. The fish was fantastic (really!), but a small portion. I left full after sharing a slice of cheesecake with my wife.

    Amazing as always! Awesome food and drinks. Our plates are always empty at the end of the meal. Much prefer the outdoor space as when the restaurant becomes full, it can be a bit noisy and you can’t enjoy the jazz music playing in the background.

    Lobster bisque was full of delicious flavor and pieces of lobster. Salads were very tasty! The filet with truffle potatoes and grilled asparagus was excellent, tender with flavors that made it all awesome. The scallops with pork belly and grits and a glaze over the top was absolutely delicious. We wish that we had shared one creme brulee after all of the other food but both vanilla and carmel were wonderful.
