I go here about once a month in the evening. There is a guest brewery of the week plus about 30 rotating beers, some from North Carolina. The light food is quite good including excellent home made soups, flat bread like pizza, salads, and sandwiches....More

The food here is good, seating is very hard to come by and on a busy night a table is hard to find. The service, well it's really, really slow. You could stand at the bar for 10 minutes and it's like you're invisible before...More

Great food, varying beer selection but barkeeps know their stuff. The sandwiches are awesome. Tried the Flatbread this trip and it was terrific. Paired well with dark beer suggested by the barkeep.

One of my favorite places to eat lunch. Great Ale selections with Gluten Free options too. Great menu with a variety of foods. A very creative chef that never disappoints. Lots of fresh food options not just from a frozen food truck.

We are locals and this is one of our favorite places to go eat at. A dinner special this week was delicious pot pie. We also had a piece of lemon pie for dessert. Yummy. Thanks again for another wonderful dinner. See you again soon.

Nice place for lunch. My companions had the special, fresh chicken salad made with olives and a side of potato salad. I enjoyed the best shredded pork quesadilla with cheese, roasted red peppers and onions served. A side of fresh salsa and blue tortilla chips...More

The Crescent Moon Cafe is a great place to go to try out beers. They have something like 40 taps of high quality brews. The food is very good as well.
