My wife and I ate there in November just before Thanksgiving. We wanted to eat at Beaches but they were closed mid week (winter hours). We saw that MobyDdick was open and decided to give it a try. We have noticed that during the summer season it is usually very crowded (means it's good?). They had a nice lunch selection... More

On our first visit to port a, friends and family suggested we try moby dicks. The atmosphere was nice and beachy. The appetizer was great (hushpuppies), but the entrees weren't as good. Was really disappointed after paying 50+ for dinner for 2 and the food was sub-par. The service and our waitress was great though.

We were there on a Saturday night, so the wait was 20 minutes. We found seats at the bar and got our drinks and our table was ready, so the waiting time was less than quoted. The menu said a reef of oysters. It was 8 oysters, but I was unable to finish them all because they were so large.... More

Was recommended to us as a neat place to take the kids. Food was good and nice size portions too. Kids liked the décor.

Walking through the doors into an island like setting, awesome!! Service was rather blah and not very knowledgeable. Ordered seafood platter and it came out cold as ice, boo!! The server was kind enough to remove it from the bill, but I still walked away hungry as nothing else was offered.

Too much crust on fish. Seven people had lunch. Only positive review was the coconut shrimp and Mauhi Mauhi. Had to order hushpuppies separately, toast came on the fried fish plater???Will not be back.

What can I say...this meal did not start off well and seemed to continue to go downhill...POOR SERVICE. When we approached check in desk we were "GREETED" okay not even greeted by a less then happy young lady who really did not seem like she cared that she was there or we were there. She handed us a pager and... More

If you're tired of restaurants that taste like cousins of Long John Silver's, be prepared to belly up to the buoy of deliciousness! We got oysters on the half shell, calamari and crab stuff jalapeños, all we're excellent. The stuffed jalapeños were just amazing and very meaty. For dinner three of us got the Dungeness crab boils one adding mussels... More

Moby's decor and ambiance has a nautical/pirate/shipwreck feel to it. The Tiki Bar has great drinks and food. A gift shop is also on premises. CLOSED ON MONDAYS. They also serve breakfast. Moby's is a must for any visitor.
