Very good atmosphere that has a nautical/beach theme. Food is above average and service is good. This is a good place for the family with average priced meals for the island.

Moby Dick's is a fun family restaurant. You get very large portions at a good price. The casual setting is ideal for beach goers and vacationers. A good place to get a seafood meal or a tasty burger.

The red snapper is an excellent dish to eat. The ambience is awesome! It is a must to check out while you are in Port Aransas.

We had a 30 min wait but plenty of shopping and looking so it went FAST. Service was pretty good for a holiday weekend too. The food is average taste and price but fun beach atmosphere especially for kids. Lots of average food on island but this one has a fun atmosphere too.

Moby Dick's reminds me of the Bubba Gump restaurants. It's decorated with tons of fun, sea life novelties and has the matching food and drink menu. We were sat in the small inside dining area, per our request, and enjoyed the quiet and slightly dark room. It reminded me of being in a wooden ship. The staff, all around, were... More

Very touristy - but fun for the kids. Nice gift shop. Food was good - my husband got the crab boil and the portion was huge! Fun tropical drink menu too. Staff was very friendly! Looked like a nice outdoor bar area too. Also a bonus - next door to the big candy shop!

Very popular, excellent food. The coconut shrimp was a hit. There was a long wait, but what else could be expected in a resort town during the tourist season. We amused ourselves roaming through the gift shop until we were seated. Our waiter was efficient and pleasant, even though he was probably exhausted. The décor was a hoot - every... More

The service is just ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. The bar people suck and the waitstaff is horrible. The past 3 times we went, we waited an hour and... More

They close after lunch on Sunday and are closed on Mondays. The kids and I had the Dungeness Crab and it was delicious! My husband had the fried oysters and shrimp and enjoyed his food. I was initially disappointed, after we were seated, the waiter said they were out of all crab and peel and eat shrimp. Our 9 year... More
