Service was wonderful. Ambiance was wonderful. Went for steak special on Sunday night. One steak was the butt end cut, not the best. Should have asked to hold the salt since it was heavy on course ground salt. Nice pepper. Cocktails at $14+. Should have went with wine special. Overall a nice evening. Sometimes ordering the special is not the best. Still one of best in Rehoboth.

Our server Douglas was great. All of us very much enjoyed our dinners. I had the swordfish steak and it was wonderful. The Mexican shrimp cocktail was loaded with shrimp and it had a nice kick to it.

One of the best dinner experiences I have had in a long time. The three course dinner was delicious and with seasonal offerings. I had the sweet potato soup, sword fish, and rum-chata cheese cake. The wine pairings were also very tasty. All staff was very friendly. The ambiance was lovely on a rainy fall day, with a nice window view. Felt well taken care of.

Charming restaurant. Wonderful cocktail variety. Outstanding service!! We shared the short rib nachos, which were wonderful. Our entrees were stuffed shrimp (perfect) and seafood pasta. The seafood pasta was just ok. Pasta was over cooked & the sauce bland. It was not by any means bad, just uneventful. That said, I would absolutely try Blue Moon again because everything else was perfection.

Blue Moon for dinners is fantastic. For brunch, it is meh. Had the steak and eggs. For the price, steak was nothing special and for some reason the waitress wouldn’t let me have egg whites instead of eggs (even offering to pay the difference). How hard is that? We booked outdoors, thinking it would be in their spacious bar area. Instead it was in the cramped front, with sun in eyes. I love Blue Moon, but go for dinner

Brunch on Sunday. Sat on the front porch: lovely and server was wonderful and attentive. I would wish for a few more choices (i.e. quiche and/or some sandwich options?). All in all a very nice meal.

Mask policy was ridiculous and not expected at a high-end restaurant where the restaurant was far less than half occupied.

Food was good… Definitely above average but not amazing.

Service was one of the biggest downfalls… Glasses were empty for at least 10 minutes in between servings and for the amount of money we were spending felt that the server should’ve been more outgoing and friendly. We would have liked the server to be more passionate about the restaurant and the food.

Food was good but not good enough to justify the exalted price. For example, ratatouille accompanying rock of lamb was delicious but lamb barely seasoned. Decor and ambience quite elegant except for loathsome Halloween decorations which were completely inappropriate. A sommelier would be useful, if waitress by her own admission doesn't drink wine and can' t make recommendations. I informed restaurant in advance it was our anniversary but they did nothing to mark it.

Thank you for providing feedback on your recent visit with us and hope we will do better on your next visit. However we do take exception with the term “inappropriate” used to describe our Halloween décor. The items are vintage collectables and have been on display for Halloween here at the Blue Moon for 20 years with many positive comments from our guests. A history of the items can be found online by searching "telco-motion-ettes-of-halloween-history-and-collectors-guide-2/"

We dined twice at Blue Moon and both times were delighted by the quality of all the dishes. In particular the shrimps are excellent and the desserts to die for.

The Blue Moon is a "must try" restaurant! Although small, the food, service and ambiance is beyond compare. It is truly one of the best venues for a special dinner in Rehoboth Beach!

We’ve been celebrating our anniversary for many years, driving down from NYC to spend a few nights in Rehoboth Beach every October. We dine at Blue Moon the first night of our visit.
This year our dinner was most disappointing. Our pork chops were tough, too salty, and inedible. Our waiter, Douglas, offered us other choices, which we declined. He did bring out their special dessert for both our 20th anniversary, as well as our experience.

Food was high quality, but our food was delivered more than hour after we placed our order. We had the earliest brunch seating so we weren’t expecting a delay. The servers all apologized for the wait time. Same thing happened to all the tables near us.

We went for Sunday brunch for our anniversary. The host staff was very sweet and sat us by the front window. The fried green tomato starter was amazing. Beautiful ambience, would definitely go back and try dinner next time we are in town.
