If you love fried clams, scallops, fish this is the place to go!! Everything is fresh and cooked just right, they have a huge selection of seafood cooked in many ways plus it's BYOB!! That's right, you can bring wine or beer, I've even seen folks in line with big coolers!!

Enjoyed our lunch stop here. Quite busy when we were there but friendly service and good food. Caters for families with children along with couples wanting a quieter meal. More like a roadside diner than an intimate restaurant. Good lobster and choice of seafood on menu. We would go back if in the area again.

Moby Dick's Restaurant on Route 6 is a welcome addition to the residents and seasonal guests, alike. We have known the owner, Todd Barry since it first opened. Todd's number one goal is 'customer satisfaction.' If some dish is not prepared to your liking, Todd will prepare another one with no charge at all. Let me tell you something, friends,... More

This is our go to place every summer. Fresh wonderful seafood. An amazing staff of sweet kids. The owner is attentive and very nice. It's BYOB. Go a lot and try everything. The best fried clams, lobster roll and seafood gumbo.

Moby Dick's is simply the best seafood restaurant we have found. It is not fancy, more of a "in the rough" place. But the seafood is fresh, fresh, fresh. It is prepared in a manner that highlights the seafood, not the preparation. Fried foods have a batter that is very light. All dishes are always cooked just enough, served hot... More

We hit Moby Dick's as a last resort. Driving up and down the highway we didnt see anything we wanted to try and we were getting hungry. So we pulled in not knowing what to expect and had a delightful delicious dinner. I wont go into great detail about the service, excellent, or meeting "Mignon" (read the menu!) which was... More

No matter what one orders, the food is outstanding, fresh as can be, and efficiently delivered by friendly servers. For at least ten years we have visited friends in Wellfleet and eat at Moby Dicks two or three times during a week. Lunch is great with less lines, but the lines at dinner do move. You order at the counter,... More

Went in after seeing it driving back from Provincetown. Just so happened that we had a cooler in the back to take with us for the day with a couple of apple cider bevvy's. How cool was it when the owner who by the way was so hard working and a great host said that we could bring them in!... More

We ate at Moby Dick's on the day before they closed for the season. Had a great meal, fresh and large portions, and very attentive service. We got there before a rush, and glad! The line was very long when we left, which is a testament to the quality of the restaurant. Visited with both the husband and wife owners,... More
