Our first time at Moby Dick's - we were expecting a very long wait for a table after reading all the reviews. We arrived around 5pm on a Friday night, the parking lot was full, but we were seated right away. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We had rib-eye steak dinners, grilled shrimp meal & a king crab... More

Paid 11.99 for four pieces of fried shrimp, cheap fries and sloppy coleslaw. Atmosphere is cool but food isn't worth the price.

Make sure youu take the tie to venture through the whole restaurant. Ed the owner has done most of the work and it is masterful. The breakfast is delicious and we are going to try lunch next. Reasonable prices too.

Read other reviews. Waits are lon before and after seating. Food is just as good as many OTHER places in Port A. If their service was better it would change everything but it's NOT. Skip this place. Castaways is a recommendation.

If you like to wait for FOREVER, then this is the place for you. We went at 8:00 on a week night and we waiting at least 45 minutes to be seated (with plenty of open tables) and once we were seated the service, again, took FOREVER. We waited over 1.5 hours before we actually got our food after ordering.... More

We decided to go to Moby Dick's after a local said it was the best place for seafood. When we got there it was around 4pm and they told us it would be a 45 minute wait which ended up being closer to an hour and a half. Be prepared for a wait, but they do have a nice shop... More
