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.

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.

Not the same Blue Moon since ownership and chef change. Loud music and singing from rear spilled over to main dining area.

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.

A wonderful Sunday Brunch with a great selection of healthy and tasteful options. Excellent setting made better by a jazz guitarist playing music for all to enjoy. The food was great.

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.

We love the Blue Moon and have eaten there many times. Last night was disappointing. My husband had a blackened rockfish that was too thin, and therefore too dry.

My friend had a swordfish that came out much later than the rest of the food and then arrived not good. She had to return it.

The waiter staff was great, drinks and wine really good, ordered Cucumber Gimlets.
My daughter ordered the filet it comes with mashed potatoes, she ask to switch to french fries, we were told this is not an option so we had to order them as an additional side the mashed potatoes were not touched. Seemed like a minor exchange at the same value. Also, we ordered the Baratta on the menu it comes with mango and pistachios. The order came out with sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts.
When getting a bill close to $500 for 5 people which is okay. Part of what you are paying for is a little accommodation and an explanation of any changes in the menu.
At a lower price point, I would have accepted the above.

My husband ordered the ribeye Medium and it came out Rare to medium rare, it was also very gristly. I ordered the Swordfish, it was ok. Definitely have had better seafood and steak for a lot cheaper. The best part was the dessert, we got the Blue Moon Bombe and it was huge and delicious ! The waitress was great!

The restaurant was lovely. The drag show was going on so it was kind of loud which is fine but weird to have one in a place where people are eating. The food was very good, as usual. Unfortunately, the employee shortage was apparent. Very slow to approach originally, slow to get first and second round of drinks. We were not offered dessert and it was my husband's birthday. We had to ask for dessert and coffee. Our plates were not removed after we had eaten, even though the server had been to the table. i find that really bad when going to a nice upscale restaurant. The owner/ manager walked by several times and could have removed the plates. i know it is hard times for small businesses and keeping employees but everyone should be pitching in. It is not a cheap evening and so service should go along with that.

This was our second time dining at the Blue Moon and it’s been 3 years since our first visit. I’m happy to say that nothing has changed in terms of their great service and delicious food. We love that they season their food. We had the wedge salad that was very fresh. We had 3 entrees and they were all delicious. My personal favorite was the pork chop. It was good to perfection (a perfect medium).

Eight friends and family enjoyed a birthday celebration on a recent Tasting Tuesday. The menu had something for everyone. The various menu items and matching wines were generous and enjoyed by our group. As always, the ambiance and service was wonderful, as well. Have been a loyal customer of the Blue Moon for 26 delicious years. Looking forward to many more visits!

Food was above average quality and show was outstanding! I asked waitress for cocktail sauce and was told they didn’t have any then I saw her deliver a shrimp cocktail loaded with cocktail sauce to the next table???

We apologize for the confusion. You observed one of our most popular appetizer items "Mexican Shrimp Cocktail" that consists of jumbo shrimp in addition to diced shrimp and vegetables in a spicy tomato broth.

Brunch is a magical time at Blue Moon, with its delightful seaside cottage setting. The French Press coffee is perfectly prepared and delicious, as are the complimentary scones offered before one's meal. Crab Benedict offers miniature lump crab cakes expertly topped with poached eggs and velvety Hollandaise sauce on a halved buttermilk biscuit, accompanied by hearty breakfast potatoes. Pancakes are huge, fluffy and wonderfully buttermilky, accompanied by fresh, ripe and juicy berries as well as two large slices of thick-cut bacon. Service is always welcoming and professional, with Doug being adept while juggling a number of tables on this busy Sunday morning. Dine here and have a wonderful experience.

Our birthday dinner for my sister was very enjoyable at the Blue Moon. I do have two criticisms however. One is they didn’t have the ability to make me an Appletini, and the second was the stuffed shrimp with lump crabmeat had perhaps one piece of lump crabmeat in them. The rest was breadcrumbs! I expect better when charged so much! We did have a nice time though and the ambiance is very nice.
