kind of a hybrid fast food experience. you order and pay as you enter. the menu is a nice blend of the expected seafood venue with enough basic burgers etc to please everyone then you proceed to seating where a server takes care of the rest. the food is very good and service attentive and friendly attractive building and grounds.

We ended up getting "to go" and the meals came in perfect little boxes in perfect little brown bags with handles. Food was amazing ( lobster bisque, crab cake sandwich). Would go back in a heartbeat

The staff here is amazing. The food was fantastic and the prices were good for the area. The strawberry shortcake was simple and delicious. Fresh strawberries, a biscuit and whipped cream. So good. Free refills on soft drinks and iced tea. Burgers come with a basket of fries. Everything was excellent.

It was really tough to decide what to order at this seafood place! Despite sitting on Rt 6, the atmosphere was really enjoyable. My husband and I had the tuna sandwich and the scallop roll - both were excellent. The portion size was great for lunch. Wish we stayed longer to go back and try more on the menu -... More

Our family has been visiting Moby Dick's for 20+ years. In our many visits, we have ever only had one bad meal and the owners replaced within minutes. I have never seen owners go so out of their way to make sure their customers are happy. They are always visible. My boys will not eat fish and chips anywhere else.... More

Perfect for families, service is fast, the food is always fresh and there's ton to pick from off the lengthy menu. The servers are from Europe every summer and many are studying restaurant service as a career, so feel free to ask whee they come from.

Our meal was fresh, hot and flavorful. The chowder was excellent, well seasoned and filled with chunks of clam. The cod fillet was thick and meaty and the tuna serving was perfectly rare and plentiful. The staff were attentive and friendly. The restaurant is family owned and operated with great care to details. Say hi Meg when you visit.

Simple and simply wonderful. Casual and comfortable. You wait In line ( for good reason) and order at desk but then everything is brought to your table by delightful international young wait staff BYO wine or beer so that keeps the price great. It doesn't get any better than this!

My sister, a friend, and I stopped here on the way back from Provincetown on our recent visit. Sis and I have been here many times before: it's a 'regular stop' on our list of 'go to' places. We were here this time on the early side of lunch and it was not very crowded, so were got served right... More
