Blue Moon Waterfront Grille
Hidden away in a marina on the Cumberland River, Blue Moon is an excellent choice to grab tasty seafood and a delicious al fresco brunch while overlooking the water. Try their famous grit cakes, tasty coconut shrimp, or a host of other options for brunch or any meal of the day.
Seafood always seems to taste better if you can see the water while you’re eating (even if you’re only looking at the Cumberland River). Tucked into Rock Harbor Marina, Blue Moon Waterfront Grille is a floating restaurant on a barge with both indoor and outdoor dining areas. The menu features tropical dishes like coconut shrimp and grilled mahi-mahi, as well as Southern favorites like po-boys and fried catfish. For a taste of the ocean in the middle of a river, it’s worth a visit.
This popular marina restaurant and bar can be a little tough to find, but once you’re there, it feels like home. You can even arrive by boat if you set your gps to Cumberland River Mile Marker 175. Tie up your dinghy and feast on delicious food with a Caribbean twist. Sunday brunch is also a decadent treat. Specialty cocktails trend tropical alongside plenty of beers and wines by the glass or the bottle. The outside deck is shaded by a sail-like awning so you won’t even need to apply sunscreen.
