Never got to taste the food. I presented a coupon from restaurants.com to this burger place. The owner said " I haven't taken these from others and I won't take this one from you". I live in O.S. and had family with me - this would have been a 75.00 bill had we stayed. The owner wasn't welcoming. But, the... More

How do you screw up a Drive-In style hamburger and fries? In the case of The Moby Dick start with what tasted like a previously frozen patty, don't add any seasonings while cooking and then goop on too much mayo (or some other flavorless "secret" sauce), wilted shredded lettuce and a tomato that could've used another month in the sun....

We stopped in on a Memorial weekend Saturday night. The mushroom swiss burgers were very good. The woman behind the counter messed up our order, though we may have contributed to her confusion by ordering separately while the other stayed outside with the dogs.

While the looks of the sandcastle may not be the best, the customer service is unbelievable. They were kind, modified our order to make it cheaper, and brought out ice cream treats for the kid. Along with customer service the food was great! The fry bread is unbelievable!

We went here due to the reviews. I had the Cod burger....yummy! The place is really small. So there was no seating inside. They do have out door seating. My boyfriend stood inside and ordered the food. The line was very long and from what he said It was very unorganized there. They were giving people wrong orders left and... More

We love the fish and chips here as well as the burgers and milkshakes. This is a classic beach restaurant that even offers vegetarian choices.

Stopped in for lunch, I had the fish 'n chips special which came with 2 pieces of cod, fries, and a cup of chowder for ten bucks. The fish was pretty good, but the fries were frozen crinkle cuts overcooked to nearly the toothpick stage. The chowder made up for the bad fries however. Next time I will skip the... More

This place was absolutely slammed when we stopped in for lunch following a recommendation from a local shop employee. The gal working the counter was polite, friendly and efficient and did a great job of staying cool in spite of the long line. Kudos to her! They had something for everyone on their menu, burgers, hot dogs, fish, corn dogs,... More

Had a fish and chips attack so I went to the Castle. Friendly staff reasonable price. Halibut fish special yielded frozen French fries and slightly over fried fish. It was a fried gut bomb with fried bread too. Food smelled like the fryer needed an oil change. Sorry wont be back.

I love my clam chowder. When at the ocean, I always try to find a different restaurant and try their presentation. Obviously, the locals know this is the place to go for a great meal that is reasonably priced. Yes, I will return on my next trip!
