    We chose Blue Moon to celebrate our 40th anniversary with friends. The combination of ambiance, corner table, low to moderate noise, great service, and delicious food made for a memorable evening. Many thanks to server Kimberly for making our evening a delight!

    We were so happy to see that Blue Moon Bistro was back opened! We were slightly apprehensive about it being under new ownership with a new chef, however, it did not disappoint! We were completely satisfied with our meal as well as the service and will be visiting there frequently. Cannot wait to go there again! Hands down one of the best places to eat in Beaufort, NC.

    Great open porch seating with music in background at appropriate level to allow for conversation. Waitress did a nice job and did not press us to leave even at a late hour. Scallop entree threw me for a loss thus the low rating. A red sauce on partially cooked scallops served on a bed of greens was unusual for my taste. Would try again but with different selection

    We went to Blue Moon on the last night of a weeklong roadtrip. We dined on the porch in perfect weather. Our server was so friendly and knowledgeable, providing excellent recommendations. We had the lobster bisque and French onion soup, pork osso buco and scallops, chocks orange crème brûlée and beignets. And who can forget the table bread with specially made orange marmalade butter. Divine all around - a wonderful, satisfying, and very memorable meal.

    Wonderful find in Beaufort. The tomato pie and shrimp and grits starters were unique and delicious. The catch of the day dinner entree was out of this world. So was the dry Alsace Riesling. Lovely, cozy and clean restaurant in a downtown historic house steps from the water. Will go back.

    had the choice of eating outside which we did. Food was excellent, however service left something to be desired. After we received our salad, we felt as though the waitress neglected us. She never refilled our water or even asked how the food was after it was delivered by someone else. She spent most of her time inside serving other customers. She did apologize once for her lengthy absence.

    Blue Moon BistroResponded on September 6, 2022Thank you for taking the time to chat with me earlier today.

    Shrimp and grits / and Lobster Bisque --MEXICAN? Both dishes used chili powder, and probably turmeric. Shrimp and grits makes one think of Louisiana, so perhaps blackened seasoning might be appropriate. Lobster Bisque is a delicate flavor and was trampled by the heavy-handed Mexican treatment.

    We chose to sit at the bar which is usual for us. Lara was our server and she was fantastic. Everything was delicious, starting with fresh croissants with an incredible orange marmalade butter. Beyond yummy! My husband had the fish special, pan seared mahi-mahi on Israeli couscous. I had seared scallops on Gouda grits. Chocolate tini for dessert. A very delicious meal and a pleasant evening.
