A great place to stop in for a quick and reasonably priced meal. A simple, but varied menu........from hamburgers and hot dogs to BBQ ribs. Even has salad offerings for those who want a lighter meal.

I had the swordfish which is so difficult to cook and retain moisture - the chef at Moonstone achieved perfection! The accompaniments were good too. Also the Moonstone Margherita is fabulous - downside is it is a secret recipe!!!!More

Oceanview dining from the patio! Good food - fresh and tasty. The clam chowder was very good on a chilly night. Server was friendly. Menu offers something for everyone. Within walking distance to many hotels.

Great oysters. They are raw or cooked. The prices are much better than other restaurants on the beach. Great outdoor seating looking out at the ocean. The best views.
