Since it first opened in 1938, the Half Moon Drive In has become a

famous Manitoba destination.  A family drive along the Red River for a deluxe dog has been a long standing family tradition.

The spring of 1983 saw the old Half Moon close its doors, and a larger, more modern restaurant open its doors closer to the historic St. Andrews Lock and Dam.  Since that time, the Half Moon has taken great care in maintaining the high standards that were developed from the original site.

In addition to our famous hot dogs, the Half Moon serves up mouth-watering burgers, ice cold Pepsi, tasty home made fries and the greatest ice cream treats and sweets. 

Our menu, along with a unique retro dining atmosphere are combined to create a perfect family destination.


With our growth and popularity among our customers throughout Canada, the Half Moon is proud to be serving up great food and good times and has been quoted as having CANADA'S BEST HOT DOGS.

Unveiled in the spring of 2017, The Half Moon Drive In completed a massive renovation, but the restaurant updates look like they were done in 1957, not 2017.

The buildings exterior pays homage to the now-demolished original Half Moon, opened just down the road in 1938 by brothers Peter and Louie Kosowich.  With vintage signage, original neon lighting and shiny metallic finishes, the diner's facade looks the part of a '50's hot spot.




Good Times
