Blue Moon Ratings and Reviews
It was New Years Day and we decided to go to the Blue Moon (ok we made reservations a few weeks before) and it was very delicious, relaxing and we had a fabulous brunch. We started off with the warm beignets with caramel sauce followed by the steak and the French toast. My husband said that the steak was one of the best that he had in very long time and the French Toast was also very delicious. Jackie our server was totally outstanding and she thinks of things to do for you before you can even ask. The Blue Moon is now closed until early February and we are really going to miss them. We are already counting the days until they open again.
The meal was delicious and our server, Ana, was fantastic. The rest of our experience left much to be desired – particularly for our first New Year’s Eve since moving to Sussex County.
We arrived for our 10:00 pm reservation on time and were informed that there was a 15-20 minute wait. We went to the bar area and had a drink while we waited by a drafty door. After 20 minutes we were ushered to our table. I’m sure this is a perfect location during warmer months, but it’s a bad idea to seat customers on an enclosed porch in December. We froze! Once the main dining room cleared out, we asked to move and were promptly accommodated. Rather than make excuses that it’s an old house and the city doesn’t allow modifications, it would be smart not to seat customers on the porch when it’s below freezing. At a minimum, don’t seat customers by the windows (that were visibly frosted).
I’m surprised that the restaurant was struggling to keep their reservations on time. If they were a start up establishment, it might make sense. But this wasn’t their first New Year’s Eve. The couple next to us had a 9:00 pm reservation and weren’t seated until 10:00 pm! They ended up leaving after the second course because it was already after 11:00 pm. We didn’t get our main course until 11:30 and opted to have our dessert “to go.” That should have been a great idea (and a perfect breakfast dessert) except they packaged the hot apple crisp in the same container as the ice cream. Needless to say, we had a melted mess when we got home. On a positive note, the fried green tomatoes were the best I ever had. Light and perfectly seasoned. I could have had two of those and called it a meal!
We visited the Blue Moon because of its reputation and the minimal “fine dining” options in the area. Next year, however, we may go for a casual New Year’s celebration. This wasn’t the standard we were used to or expected.
The BLUE MOON provides consistent excellence- lovely menu prepared superbly, with attention to special dietary needs, presentations are gorgeous and delicious! The service is professional yet friendly.
We love the ambiance and local vibe!
The restaurant is enjoyable for a date night or special occasion.
For New Years Eve they offered prix fix menu and we received a gift of 2 lovely champagne flutes 🥂
This is my second time going to Blue Moon and it's ever so delightful. From the time you arrived the staff is personable and friendly. My date and I went there for Christmas Eve dinner. I enjoyed my dinner which consist of Fried Green Tomatoes for starters, which were great and I chose Smoke Duck for the main course, which, too, was great. My friend started out with Squash Soup, which she loved and finished with Poach Lobster, which she didn't care too much for. Still the side dishes were wonderful. We will be back, next year.
Stopping by Rehoboth on the way back to NYC for two days that included Christmas Eve so was looking for a nice Christmas Eve dining experience. Unfortunately the two of us had developed colds on the way so we decided to forego Christmas Eve cocktails. We each ordered a starter and a main course all of which combined with the cold left us deciding to skip dessert. Everything we ordered was delicious. We both had a scallop dish for the entree that was creative and so tasty that we found ourselves eating slowly so as to prolong the enjoyment. The service was exemplary and friendly. And while the restaurant was very busy with it being Christmas Eve, my friend and I could easily have a low level conversation and still hear each other. More and more a rarity these days. The setting was lovely and we sat near a window that looked out on a misty night. If I lived in Rehoboth Beach this would be one of my regular restaurants. For the traveler looking for top notch food, service and ambience, I can't recommend Blue Moon highly enough.
Very nice local restaurant with excellent food choices. Beet salad with goat cheese appetizer was very nice, although I prefer blue cheese..next time. Roast lamb chops were awesome and the beef brisket, spatzle bolognaise was to die for. Generous portions.. Very nice..white table cloth restaurant. Super service.
Blue Moon continues to amaze us! Our entire meal from appetizers to drinks to dessert was absolutely delicious. They are so good as using fresh, simple ingredients and turning them into something extraordinary. The wine list is also exceptional. They definitely pay attention to detail! We will be back again and again!
It was Tuesday afternoon and three of us decided to go to Tasting Tuesday at the Blue Moon. Lucky for us that we were able to get in and what a wonderful evening we had. We started out in the bar for cocktails which Zack made and they were all very delicious. After that we went into the dining room and enjoy a the most delicious soup, fried green tomatoes and then we topped that off with the rockfish and the pork chop which was an added special to the Tasting Tuesday menu. The wait staff sees to you even before you have to ask for anything Jackie is totally outstanding and she really enjoys serving. If you have not tried the Blue Moon or their Tasting Tuesday you missing the best that Rehoboth Beach has to offer. If you want to try the Tasting Tuesday menu you had better hurry since they will be closing on New Year's Day until just before Valentine's Day.
We had the pear and apple salad and fried green tomatoes to start...for our main course we shared the special which was a 2lb Berkshire pork chop with a whole grain mustard sauce, roasted veggies and mashed potatoes. We managed to save room for dessert....the key lime meringue pie...each dish had the right balance of flavors and sauces...everything was cooked and prepared to perfection and our waiter was great!! We have eaten at a lot of restaurants in Rehoboth and have loved many but this was the best meal by far :)
We have lived in Rehoboth for almost 15 years and this is the first time we have been to Blue Moon. I’m not sure why we haven’t tried it before but Blue Moon will now be a regular dining spot for date nights, family occasions, and weekend dining. The food was amazing, service was great, good vibe, good drinks AND they treated us to dessert on the House! We have been to many great restaurants in RB and across the US and Blue Moon is a top pick! Don’t miss this place-we waited too long.
We went for brunch one of my favorite things to do. We started off with the home made donuts and they brought back so many memories since my mother use to make them for me. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, oyster soup and the eggs Benedict. All of which were good from the first bite to the last bite. It is always such a pleasure to go to the Blue Moon since they make the dining experience outstanding. We don't believe that there is anything that they could improve on. We also had Jackie has our server and she made the experience even more fun. She knows what you want and when you want it even before you need to ask. Thanks again Blue Moon for another wonderful dining experience. If you are visiting or live here and have not tried the Blue Moon you are missing the best that Rehoboth has to offer. Thanks again for another wonderful dining experience Blue Moon.
We went to the Blue Moon to celebrate a birthday and it was a great celebration. We started off with the beet salad and then enjoyed the duck and the lobster. Everything was totally outstanding from the first bite to the very last. We always enjoy going to the Blue Moon since we know that the food will be totally outstanding and they never disappoint us. Thanks again Blue Moon for another wonderful evening. Our server was Jackie and like the Blue Moon she is totally outstanding. She know what you want or need even before she asks you. Thanks Jackie for another wonderful evening.
Three of us decided to have dinner at the Blue Moon following their drive from Florida. Yes evening in Florida they were excited about dining at the Blue Moon. Two of us had the rock fish which was so good that it was disappointing when we finished and the third at the chicken pot pie which was also very delicious. We started with fried green tomatoes, butternut squash soup and the apple pear salad. Blue Moon is our favorite place in Rehoboth Beach and we don't think any places compare with it. If you are visiting or live here and have not tried the Blue Moon you are missing the best restaurant on the Eastern Shore. Thanks again Blue Moon for another great evening.
