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.

We had breakfast here. It is a typical breakfast and the food was good but, for some reason when they know 180 boats with at least 5 crew each are descending on this little town, they didn't have enough waitstaff to cover what looked like an average crowd. It took 20 minutes to get a glass of juice.

There were three of us and each ordered something completely different so that we could sample. OMG!! Everything was great. We had grilled shrimp, fried oysters, stuffed crab, blackened MahiMahi. Everything was prepared perfectly. Service was exceptional and prices are very reasonable for the large portions that you get. They have a wide menu and are open for breakfast, lunch... More

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!

The bartennders were friendly and joked with us. Our oysters came out and were delicious! Plump, tasteful and a nice size. We had... More

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
