Prices are a little high, but you are paying for atmosphere. Food was good, but I would stay away from the "seafood" gumbo. almost $7 for a small bowl and was mostly all okra, very little seafood

We've eaten at Moby Dick's twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times we had very good service and the food was excellent. We happened in on a Wednesday evening, which is steak night. It's good that we went early because the place was packed as we left. We split the prime rib and still the portions... More

Went on a Saturday night off season so no wait. The hostess was very nice but our waitress was not. Very slow and not packed. Food was horrible , we tried 6 different plates and all of it was like eating a microwave dinner. The decor was nice. Not a place to eat seafood for sure,

Had never been in any of our previous visits. Normally the parking lot is packed with motorcycles and trucks so we tried to avoid. With that said I a glad we stopped in today. Personally, I am not a huge fan of a souvenir shop smacking you in the face when you walk in a restaurant, but with that aside... More

Good food. Good little trinket store. Jumping service. But the atmosphere is the big seller here. Love it, love it, love it!

Went there but was not impressed by the food or the prices. Guess it's great if you have a large family to feed.

Just had lunch at Moby Dick's. It was just fine. The red pepper with shrimp and cream cheese appetizers were delish! Hubby hadn't fried shrimp Po' Boy and I had fried shrimp salad. Both were huge portions and the prices what you would expect in Port A. The server was terrific, attentive and full of great info. We will definitely... More

I suppose every beach tourist town needs a restaurant like this so if fried seafood, French fries and tropical frozen drinks are what you are looking for, this will satisfy. You have to walk through the gift shop to get to the hostess station. Lots of pirate skeleton decor and the ilk. The kids will probably enjoy it.

We were in Port Aransas for a week celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. On the night of our anniversary we drove around looking for a spot for dinner. There wasn't much open because the peak season was over. Moby Dick's was open so we took a chance, not expecting much. The server was great; attentive and friendly. She set us... More
