We have been serving British Colonial inspired food and drinks along with authentic pub atmosphere for over 20 years on historic Beach Drive. We offer a full bar with 17 draft beers, an extensive happy hour with food items discounted. We have a covered verandah and a large outdoor patio with scenic views of Straub Park and the downtown waterfront. We are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. We have won the best of the bay for our Indian curries including a spicy Vindaloo curry if you're feeling adventurous. We also offer valet parking in front of the Moon. We were one of the very first restaurants on Beach Drive and still going strong! Come see why.

Wonderful casual dinner. Service was friendly and efficient. Shepherd’s pie and fish & chips were quite tasty. We have been here twice. It is proving to be consistently good.

Overall very good. A bit pricey for our area but not for St Pete. Food was very good and server was on his game. Was a bit loud inside but it was raining so outside was out of the question (humid as can be).

A bonus we got to meet the author of the book we read that brought us to The Moon., A Year Inside the Moon by Nathaniel Sewell. He even gave us an autographed copy. My wife was happy to meet the author and get the copy and I was happy with the Curry Crab soup and strip steak.

We went on Monday, and the special is three dollars off burgers. Our burgers were delicious! Highly recommend.

Maybe the English menu is the way to go here... Not so with the Indian cuisine...the curry was just so so and bland. Service ok although we did get wrong order first...just dissapointed.

My son lost his new birthday Hot Wheels car behind a table and the staff went above and beyond to move the table and get his car. He was so happy and it was very kind of them to do this.

The food was amazing! We sat outside so it was loud from being on the street, but we could still have a conversation without any issues. I would absolutely dine there again and recommend it!

Fish sandwich was a bit dry and sparse on garnishes. Otherwise a good meal.

One of our favorite spots in downtown St Pete. We always get the curry and we’re never disappointed. 👍

After a long absence dining at the Moon I decided to return excited after reading about the new menu on OpenTable. However, as in my prior visits the online menu wasn’t even close to the actual menu. I was told once again the seasonal menu was not available. One doesn’t live on fish and chips alone! The Moon will also be a sentimental favorite but with all the choices of wonderful restaurants in the area I find myself (and friends) dining elsewhere on a regular basis.

My son recommended Moon Under Water to me with our shared appreciation of Indian food in mind. Our family standard is Chicken Tikka Masala (or as we call it CTM) and Moon Under Water's rendition of this staple was top notch. Hint: If you are offered the spice "enhancer" add it in small amounts. My friend had a fish sandwich from the English Pub side of the menu and he reported it favorably. We sat outside on the terrace which was very comfortable even on a warm day and the service was excellent. Will definitely go there again, and recommend it to others.

Sat outside which was lovely until the rain came. Moved inside and hung out until the rain stopped. Staff friendly and helpful, food was very good.

My wife and I planned to go the Moon Under Water on previous visits to St Pete, but never made it through the doors. This time we did make it to the restaurant, and after shuffling through a few tables to lessen the patio noise, we both ordered curries. I say unreservedly it was incredibly delicious; best we've had in all our visits to Indian restaurants! Service was amazing as well. We WILL be back!!!

Enjoyed our dinner, nice setting good crowd. If you want to improve, get much better napkins and get better wine glasses, they were cheesey! Lastly, screw city council, get straws! Do you really think by not allowing straws for customers that St. Petersburg is saving the planet? Get straws!

Trying to do Indian is a big mistake as was ours that evening. Chili tiki masala had uncooked onions, grainy texture to sauce as spices were not cooked into dish properly. Chicken was tender, so disappointing that the sauce was inferior. Grocery bought nan, not homemade. British pub pretending to cook Indian. Maybe stick with fish and chips.
