Low quality of ingredient for prices being charged, poor execution and equally lackluster presentation. Thank god for our accommodating server who tried to help.

My husband got the filet mignon, was very dry. I ordered the Cajun shrimp and grits, wasn’t bad. Seemed alittle pricey for 5 small shrimp though. We were seated downstairs in a very small space with 5 other tables and it was very loud. My husband made a comment saying it felt like he was sitting in a warehouse. We felt rushed and it wasn’t a relaxing date night at all.

This has gotten better of the last few months. Last two times our food was warm at best when served, but this time, smoking’! Salmon special was excellent and the Market Pork Chop amazing, tender and juicy!

They used to change the menu seasonally,give bread sticks, but this tired menu has been the same since before Covid with prices way too high, and no special touches like the past.

Our second time here in as many weeks. Our food was delicious but it was served warm at best. The second time we even mentioned to please have it served hot and it wasn’t. We told our server and asked for some gravy which was served only warm as well. Great service, great food… it just needs to be served hotter!

Not the usual quality of food we normally get at Half Moon. I know there’s a struggle right now for good staff so it’s a shame the food quality had to suffer because of it.

Steak was spectacular, so was my husbands pork chop. Loved the calamari appetizer. Ambiance was quiet and beautiful upstairs. Waitress Claire was a doll . So sweet and attentive. Yummy cheesecake desert and hot cappuccino . We will definitely be back. Just loved it here.

The calamari was awful . Poorly presented. The salad was disappointing. The air conditioning must have been off , the windows were open and it was humid and stuffy in the dining room.

I will not recommend this place because first impressions are key. We made a reservation and we were on time. The host sat us down outside. For 25 minutes no one came out to waite on us. I went inside to ask if someone was coming out to waite on us, the rude waiter told me "just one minute". They weren't busy, I told my wife we are leaving and a waiter then asked me what was wrong. I explained to him what happened and if I can speak with the manager. Waiting another 5 minutes I finally spoke with him. I explained what had happened and he was not caring or concerned and apologized. He didn't even try to make it right. So we left.

We have consistently been happy dining here both inside and outside. The service is typically good especially given the current staffing issues that are plaguing many restaurants. This has been one of our reliable, go-to places to eat during the last year or two.

Kind of disappointed with this place. We ordered the steamed clams as an appetizer. It wasn’t great. My daughter actually refused to eat it. It was served plain not even a lemon wedge. They over cooked her chicken tenders. My other daughter’s steak came cooked to temp, but was over peppered. My tomato bisque tasted like an open can of tomato paste and pepper. I couldn’t eat it. Hubby nearly choked on a bone in the short ribs. On a lighter note, everyone enjoyed dessert and service wasn’t bad.

Understandably, HMP was busy and understaffed on a Saturday night on a holiday weekend. So, our spotty service was not unexpected (empty water glasses w no refills, took awhile for greeting/ordering, etc.). Server was doing her best to keep up w everything.

We liked the atmosphere in general - a nicely designed environment, though somewhat loud. Cocktails sounded inventive, but tasted just ok. Each of our four >$30 meals were not at all worth the experience of the place or the price tag. Presentation and taste we're both sub-par. I've had MUCH better meals in the area for less, and I'm sorry to say that takes HMP off our list of places to dine going forward.

3 for dinner at 6:30. Had reservations and. sat outside on porch. Seats are too low and had to sit on cushions. Our waiter was great and deserved his 20% tip.
Food was tasty but under portioned and overpriced. I know its the Jersey shore but location on busy road and a neighborhood street nothing special. Shrimp and scallops were small in appetizers and meals. For the prices expected larger.
Cabernet Short ribs were substantial but did not come with much in the way of sauce. We like Harpoon Willies better.

Great food, prompt courteous service. Roasted brussels to start is our go-to. Shrimp and grits awesome signature meal. Fresh and well-sized filets of fish with balanced seasonings. Odd pairing of wasabi mashed potatoes with brandy cream sauce for seared tuna.

Busy with high traffic but tables spaced out and noise level acceptable. Bar downstairs is a good place to unwind.

This place is consistently great.

We eat out a lot and I rarely give a meal a 10. This meal was a 10!
I had the Pork Chop, mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. I will be back just to get this. Worth every penny. The server, "Gabby" was also a 10!

The service and ambience at Half Moon Point was very good. Our server was very attentive and made sure everything was as it should be. We had a reservation and we were brought to our table as soon as we walked in. The fried calamari appetizer was delicious. Our entrees of seafood were very fresh. I had the fillet of sole and my husband had the seafood bucket which he was very happy with as well.

Food was good and the service was good. Place is getting very pricey though. An app and an entree each for two with a couple of glasses of wine will hit you for $150 w/o tip. You can get away less expensively by ordering a sandwich. Even they are up there.

We sat at a table next to the door going to their enclosed porch. 1. The door slamming was loud and constant going in and out of the porch. 2. They need some kind of shades on porch. Sun streams inside and it was blinding. 3. Flies were buzzing around us the whole time.

Friendly service but very mediocre food. I first wanted to order the French dip sandwich but was told they could not substitute a different cheese for the Swiss on the menu. I ordered a burger and ordered the macaroni and cheese as a side (there was an up charge for this). The burger was okay but the roll was slightly stale and I didn’t get pickles. The mac and cheese was gross. It was watered down Alfredo sauce. The waitress credited the extra charge, but I left disappointed. I will not be returning to Half Moon Point.
