We started with a dozen raw oysters which were served ice cold. They were great. My husband had the fried fish basket. When asked what kind of fish it was, we were told it was Alaskan so def not local. I had the fried shrimp basket. The shrimp were huge but with a heavy breading. We'd go back for the... More

Every time we go to Port A we HAVE to go to Moby Dick's. We love the ambiance and the food. This time our waiter was awesome and helped us select great new food items from the menu. And the bar is fabulous! And so is the gift shop. A MUST when you're in Port A!

Our waiter was sarcastic an argumentative. We ordered mojitos, but was served mai tais. When I pointed this out to the waiter, he told us we did not order mojitos. I told him we did, he told us no we did not. Then he told us they were out of mint anyway. He seem to have a challenging attitude towards... More

Headed to Port A in hopes of enjoying some time on the beach, now that the peak season has passed. Was hoping to grab a bite and a drink at a local establishment, before heading back to Corpus... We made our way to Moby Dick's at 2pm, long after any crowd had been there for the lunch crowd. The hostess... More

I have been eating at this restaurant for many years and the décor keeps changing but the quality of the food is consistently good. When you leave you feel like the money you spent was well worth the visit.

The portions are huge and the prices are a bit high compared to our hometown but seemed about on par with the other restaurants when it came to their seafood dishes. Loved the ambiance and how they painted the ceiling ducts for the air conditioning.

I don't do seafood and that is hard to deal with when on coastal town, but this place had a great chicken dish. The atmosphere was fun and ocean themed of course. Lots of room, great for families. The drinks were reasonable priced and so was the food.

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.
