The service is a bit slow, but the food is above average compared to the rest of the island. Its moderately priced and they usually have lunch specials. The decor is cool and children can take pictures with the statues. Its a good place to eat lunch when you are re-cooperating from the day before!

My family and I enjoyed the seafood here (I had the coconut fried shrimp, which was beyond expectations...YUMMY!) and our waitress was outstanding. We will return there if we're ever in Port A again. lilela

My daughter and I recently ate here. We really enjoyed their grilled shrimp and chicken dinners however the noise level in the dining area was way too loud.The music was too loud along with the moving of tables and chairs to accommodate a larger party! How about lifting furniture instead of shoving it around.

Normally, I eat the small rib-eye, baked spud and a salad for my "last dinner" in Port A. I'm always more than satisfied. The service at the inside bar is excellent. The wine and water seems be there as often as ya need it.... The seafood is also a winner..... The place is usually packed early (that's why I sit... More

The food was excellent, the decor was fun especially for the kids. The attached gift shop had great prices. Several items purchased at other shops were several dollars cheaper here.

Friday night late arrival on the Island and needed a good meal without a reservation. Moby Dicks was just the right place. Waited only 15 minutes in the bar with cold draft beer. We shared the Seafood Platter with 3 choices to pick from out of six entrees. It was plenty of food! There are a number of fine 4-5... More

Always a Port A favorite, we stopped in to Moby Dicks and had some food. The hush puppies are jalapeno, but oh well. The fish I had was the alaskan halibut and very good. I do not recall having anything to drink so I can not speak to that.
