A friend recommended Blue Moon to us, and it was a good recommendation! We each got an appetizer and a salad rather than a full meal. The calamari and the scallops were both excellent, as was the margarita. The place was busy and bustling, but...More

Yes it is in a strip mall and it doesn't look like a bustling strip mall, but we had a wonderful meal and had very good service. We went based on the reviews we had seen and we were not disappointed.

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
