It’s vacation time on Cape Cod! You and your family want to have lots of fun and eat some fresh seafood.

Our first visit to Moby Dick's was aided by Trip Advisor rating. We were greeted by Todd, the owner who took out BYOB and carried same to our table. A polite and competent cashier took our order and we followed Todd to our table. Wine and beer in ice bucket, glasses and corkscrew provided. Soon, a dozen Wellfleet oysters arrived,... More

This not only had excellent service right off the highway and great variety of seafood. The owner stopped at our table several times to see if everything was good. He even gave us advice on various local attractions. This is a great place

Stopped here on the way back from Provincetown. Right on the main road. Lovely staff...friendly! They don't serve alcohol but allow you to bring your own beer or wine. Owner Todd makes the rounds throughout the various dining rooms to ensure guests are happy. My husband loved the lobster roll! Will be back! Thanks for a great experience!

Looked good and was quite busy so we stopped. No big deal for us,BUT NO LIQUOR IS SERVED HERE! We had clam chowder, crab cake, cod sandwich and the Moby Dick version of the bloomin' onion.

Finally made it to Moby Dick's. I have never had had better /friendlier service anywhere in the world. Steamers were fresh but a little sandy, that happens sometimes and not a problem. The lobster roll was stuffed with claw and tail meat but it had the taste and consistency of meat that had been frozen and not completely drained. It... More

The food was remarkable. So fresh and crazy good and the BYOB was dang good, too. The informative staff showed us how to actually eat our clambake and... More
