Jacksonville Beach FL 365 things to do Half Moon Raw Bar
It's refreshing to see the "good old days" of the family friendly neighborhood bar and grill revived in Jacksonville Beach, Fl. It's difficult to find an atmosphere that is kid friendly yet also provides entertainment venues you can attend on your date nights. This one is a 10+ in all categories.
The owners are no strangers to the restaurant business they've provided us over the years very iconic places like Sun Dog Diner, The Moon Raw Bar and most recently Sun Dog Brewing Co. in Ponte Vedra. It's nice to have a return to Jacksonville Beach, Fl as they've not had a presence here since The Moon. It speaks volumes about an owner when many of your staff have been with you for years and provides an extended family for patrons who've also been supporting this family of eateries for years as it's always nice to see a familiar face.
When I say they have it all I'm not exaggerating. It's very hard to find a place where everything on the menu is amazing. I've finally found a place that I have a difficult time ordering as so many of my tried and true favorites from there other past restaurants appear on the menu. Let me give you some examples, shrimp and grits that I'm certain hands down I would put up against the Jekyll Island shrimp and grits festival winners in a heartbeat, a blues burger that I would happily pay $20 for and beats even the boathouse burger in central park, absolutely the best chicken wings I've ever had (my previous favorite was from Hogs Breath in Key West) and my kid amazingly eats everything on the kids menu and even she has a hard time deciding! They even have the best meatloaf in the world (hope my Mom still is speaking to me after she reads this)! I've now found myself not being the least bit concerned that I've forgotten to take something out for dinner perhaps subconsciously that could be my stomach overruling my brain?
Last night was kids eat free night it was packed that made me so happy as I certainly know it's not just my family that has fallen in love with this place. They also have 50 cent wing nights, trivia and sometimes just randomly open on their day off just to keep us entertained. If you want to be an insider then like their fb page or drive by and look at the marquee. Again, if you're looking for a casual place to enjoy great food, good company and amazing service in Jacksonville Beach, FL then look no further than Half Moon Raw Bar 1289 Penman Rd. Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250.
