Waited an hour and a half to sit down and waited an other 40 minutes for our food. My brothers steak was so dry and over cooked. It was so loud you couldn't hear your self think. Would not recommend going here!

Decent seafood, nothing special. I hate that you have to fill out 100 characters when the ratings below explain enough.

I didn't understand why my daughter could sit at the bar and not outdoors! I had to ask for service, they were not busy at all. Food was good. Pretty much it's the atmosphere that is pretty cool.

My Best Friend took me to Port A for my Birthday and we had Dinner there at Moby Dicks, from all the Restaurants on the Island, Moby Dicks was my favorite one. The Steak and Seafood was EXCELLENT! I cant wait to go back just to have my Steak and Shrimp.

Tourist schmuck. No local atmosphere what so ever. Food may be great but we took one look at the place and left.

The Hawaiian style mahi mahi was amazing. Service could have been better. Very interesting decor. Big gift shop in the front. Atmosphere was more fun last year. The "house sauce" with the coconut shrimp smelled like arm pits.

The owner recently installed A/C in the enclosed interior patio - he puts so much thought, and creativity into creating a fun interior decor and atmosphere.

We were recommended this place by two different locals as the place they take their family when they are in town so we had to try it out. After missing out on them for dinner a couple of nights (They are closed Sunday Night and all day Monday), we finally were able to stop in and were very happy. Some... More
