Nestled in historic Nags Head, Blue Moon Beach Grill is a beloved, family-owned restaurant where southern hospitality will always be king. We’re known for our exciting and creative cuisine and pride ourselves on offering you a 'Once in a Blue Moon' experience.
In 1970, newlyweds Will and Karen Shields visited the Outer Banks. Will, son of a Pennsylvania farmer and butcher, had never seen the ocean. The rest is considered family destiny. In 2009, with their son, Scott, and his wife, Melissa, they opened a little restaurant in Nags Head called Blue Moon Beach Grill. Popular with locals, the restaurant grew and in 2023 we moved to our new, custom built location.
