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.

Curry dish was good, but the Shepard's pie was very bland. Service was slow.

Main courses arrived when we were half way through eating our appetizer so our server just left the main meals on the side of the table saying 'i'll leave these here for when you're ready'. We are definitely not slow eaters but the server didn't seem bothered that main meals would be cold by the time we got to them. Shame
...used to be our favourite restaurant in St. Pete.

I made a reservation for an Inside table at 7:00 for 4 people by the window for a Special Event. We arrived 5 min before 7:00 but they didn't have a table ready for us. It was either take an open table outside or wait 30 min. I remarked, "So why did we make a reservation"? The young hostess did not know how to respond. We decided to take the outside table then NO ONE came over for 35 min to take our initial drink order. The manager came over and said, "Oh, I thought you were waiting for an inside table". That was never established and it doesn't mean someone could not have come over to get our drinks started. Summers are brutal in Florida...FYI.
The manager said a table opened up inside and by this time it was almost 8:00 pm. The manager never offered any kind of compensation or misunderstanding for not having a table ready and the fact that no server came to our table for 35 min.
In the past we've always highly recommended Moon Under Water but now we must think twice before suggesting it.

Went here for a birthday my dinner. Just three of us. Sat outside under cover because of the weather.
It wasn't anything to write home about. Just an average meal. For the location and the reviews I read I expected more.

Good ambiance outside. Fans were a nice touch in the warm florida weather. Nice location, great spot for people watching or relaxing. Damn good food! The NAAN (not “naan bread” = “BREAD BREAD”), left something to be desired, BUT the chili tikka masala was delish! Would come back :). Great service overall! Cost = $$

Something was off this time. The burger took to long to come out and when it did it was the wrong one. The curry was not as good as it was 4 moths ago. Hopefully it was an off night and not the new norm.

Have been dining at Moon Under Water for more than 20 years, and it never disappoints. Good variety of Brit Ales on tap, and the Brit Pub version of "Curry" which is delicious--and the Naan is always fresh.

I had not been in possibly a year. The Cuban my friend ordered was on stale breD looked like it had been pressed several times trying to hide. Meat was burnt around the edges. I had fish and chips which were barely warm . Other friend had grilled Haddon K, which was not warm but over cooked and dry. I would not recommend or advise anyone to try. Very disappointed.

Been there many times before and always have been satisfied with the food and service. This visit was not one of those times. Food was mediocre. “Baked beans” tasted like they came straight from a can of Van Camps. No flavor. Nothing baked about it. Otherwise meal was okay.
Slow service in restaurant and even a longer wait for valet (nearly 30 minutes). And the restaurant wasn’t even that busy!

The Moon Under Water is always a welcoming, comfortable dining destination. I chose to go there for the USA Women's Soccor Finals because I knew it would be filled with friendly, like-minded enthusiasts. I wasn't disappointed! The service was, as always, terrific. I ordered the hummus and feta tabouli, and - as always - it was delicious. Highly recommend!

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.
