3 couples of us enjoyed staying in Southern Illinois and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The food and restaurant environment was delightful. Our disappointment was that they charged us for using credit cards without notice! Not sure this is legal☹️

Tried it. It was expensive for what we received. My meal was OK, but not exceptional. My wife did not like her meal at all. We wouldn't go again.

This place is fantastic! Their food is locally sourced and their menu changes by what they have available. They always have delicious items and they are always busy (so call ahead of time for a reservation or you may be out of luck)!

I had the Rueben, one friend had a roast beef, and another had the ham and cheese. We all agreed that they were tasty sandwiches. The one who had the ham and cheese said it was the best he had ever had.

The Yellow Moon is a down-home southern Illinois gem in little old Cobden, Illinois. The owner and staff are super nice and pride themselves on serving great food, coffee and drinks. It's well worth the stop. Many times they have live music and it's a...More
