Fine food, as always. Waiter was presented well, but was humorless. And he cleared the courses before everyone was finished, which rushes the persons not finished and is not a sign of class dining.

We regularly dine at the Blue Moon. This is our favorite restaurant in Rehoboth. Everything about this place is top notch so it’s hard to isolate one aspect of the dining experience. We really enjoy the Sunday Brunch entertainment. We have have enjoyed many dinner and brunch occasions at Blue Moon and have never been disappointed.

I have been going to Blue Moon for years and normally highly recommend it but not this past weekend. Food was disappointing - very salty. If you sit on the porch area (which is fully enclosed) by the window be prepared to wear your jacket in the winter, it was cold!

I'm from DC and a friend set me up on a blind date and suggested the Blue Moon. When I got there it was a nice surprise, the ambiance was nice, the servers were wonderful, the food was EXCELLENT! I understand the menu changes but if you can get the scallops, they were amazing!

We had another great meal at Blue Moon. We started with the fried green tomato which is large enough for 2 people to split. It was one of the best I've had. I had the scallops for my entrée and they were excellent. My husband enjoyed his entrée as well. Blue Moon is cozy and romantic. Tables are close together but the restaurant is still quiet enough to have a nice conversation, even on a busy Friday night.

The food was good but the tables are very close together. As often happens the hostess (chewing gum) took us to a table right next to and looking directly at another couple when there was other free tables. Having been seated we asked to be moved and were actually thanked by the other couple. It is getting to be off season but go when this restaurant is quite and not full

We went to celebrate our anniversary and every was totally wonderful. We started off with the beet salad and the butternut squash soup and then we both enjoyed the pork chop. We topped with the meal with the key lime dessert. From the first bite to the very last bit everything was delicious and we were sad that the meal was over. We enjoyed it so much that we have already made reservations for a birthday celebration in December. If you are visiting or live in the area and not have tried the Blue Moon you are missing the best that Rehoboth Beach has to offer. Thanks Blue Moon for another wonderful evening.

Fabulous!! This was the second time in a week that my husband and I had reservations at Blue Moon. Our only regret was that they were out of the tuna carpaccio (we shared that starter last time and we’re so looking forward to each of us having our own this time). We quickly got over it, though, with my fois gras and my husband’s beet salad starters. Our entrees (beef stroganoff and a pork chop) were delicious. Desserts were awesome too! This place is a ‘must do’ for visitors to the Rehoboth Beach area and locals alike!!

Blue Moon is probably me and my husband’s favorite restaurant in Rehoboth Beach as evidenced by the multiple reservations during our stay. We go back this evening! During our first visit, we shared the tuna carpaccio (which won’t happen again because I am demanding my own!). It was fabulous!! For entrees, I had the chicken pot pie...I will never eat Swanson’s again after tasting what a real pot pie should taste like. My husband had a lobster tail served over some lusciousness. The restaurant is consistently great, not just good. Can’t wait for this evening’s visit!

So this is without fail one of the best restaurants in Rehoboth Beach and is not to be missed. My friends and I were here for tasting Tuesday, which is a terrific value with very creative options. I had the pork belly to start which was perfectly prepared, followed by the beet salad which had a very light and delicious citrus dressing followed by the bolognese. This was dressed with a crusted egg which had a lucious, runny yoke. To die for!

We always enjoy the singing of Pamala Stanley. Food is always good, but would like to see different brunch options. Last year we asked about comfort foods in the winter like creamed chip beef, grilled cheese and tomato soup, omelets, fruit plate. We like to go there every week, but don’t really like fancy meals. Pamala Stanley is the big reason we go and have brunch.

it was a mixed evening. The butternut squash soup was terrific and so was the fried green tomato appetizer. The salads lacked creativity and the scallops entree was a very large portion but again there weren't many complex flavors. The dessert menu was limited so we did chocolate martinis for dessert and they were great.

Delicious food and lovely atmosphere as usual. Service was excellent. Would appreciate being able to substitute potatoes with a non potassium option due to medical condition but was told I could leave them off and they may put on extra greens. A true substitution would have been appreciated especially in an establishment of this caliber. It will not keep me from returning as it is still my #1 brunch choice.
