Moby Dick's is on the way to and from Provincetown, MA, on the main highway. It is a combination of family restaurant and gift shop. You order and pay for your food first, then sit down. The food was surprisingly good and plentiful. The fresh corn was tasty. The wait staff had some people from the United Kingdom that work... More

If you like your seafood straight and sumptuous, this is your next rendezvous. This has become our "go to" for lunch and/or dinner every summer when we visit. The food is perfectly prepared and presented by a lovely attentive staff and Todd is a great conversationalist and host . We enjoy every minute of our visits and will definitely be... More

This was flat out the worst lobster roll I have ever eaten and I am no lobster roll virgin. I love lobster rolls, I have eaten lobster rolls from just about everywhere on the outer cape you can buy one, as you just never know where you just might find that hidden gem. I have traveled up the coasts of... More

Dear poloxamer, Our staff, my wife & I go to great lengths to circulate to make sure that our guests have everything they need and that they have a fabulous experience. With all due respect, if things were as bad as you describe (and you go to great lengths to do so), why didn't you say anything? If we had... More

It's a toss up between which I like more - the food or the staff! Both are exceptional. A must for anyone on the cape this summer!

Be prepared to wait, but it's well worth it. You get your menu while on line, you then order at the cashier's, and served at your table. Always bustling so plan an early arrival. Lots of nautical eye candy. The food is pretty darn good and is served informally on paper plates, plastic forks, etc. BYOB! There's a good, reasonably... More

First the good points. The seafood was hard to fault. The crab cakes were packed with meat and the fries were real potatoes cut thin. (Not frozen as best I could tell) The food order was taken and in no time our appetizers arrived. The Lobster bisque was a little too creamy for my liking but not bad. I'd pass... More

Went Tues. night at 7:30 and had 45 minute wait. Still a good size wait at 8:45 when we left. Raw oysters were some of the best any of us has ever had. Nothing fancy (get your own water) but excellent coastal food. Fried clams, lobster roll, blackened swordfish, fried oysters all great. Very reasonable prices.
