Delicious!!!

I ordered the fried seafood platter and clam chowder. My husband ordered the lobster roll. Everything was delicious and very reasonably priced. Very casual atmosphere. Great stop while driving down cape cod.

I had lunch with the family at Moby Dick's before driving to Logan Airport to catch a flight. It was a quick but nice lunch. Everybody enjoyed the meal. It is one of the traditional cape cod restaurants that you have to visit when you are there.

"The Mrs." does a lot of researching on 'where to eat' before we go on a trip and Moby Dick's fared very well. We stopped by and yes, there was a line to get in. But we wanted to try it and had been talking about lobster rolls all day. We started off with a dozen oysters. Very good and... More

Went here for lunch - craving lobster rolls. Very tasty, yet a bit on the dry side - no hot butter, or even cold mayo, but it let the flavor of the lobster shine through. Location is good right on Route 6.

We stopped here on the way back from Provincetown. Another couple on the whale watching cruise gave this place a good rating and referral and we now say we agree. You stand on line and look at the menu, order when you get inside and they bring the food to your table. We ordered the Lobster Rolls and thought they... More

Had a terrific lunch here yesterday. Good and service from the multi-national waitresses with food to match. Good sized portions - not ridiculously large as can be the case - that were just right for us and the crab cakes where especially good and highly recommended. Seafood kebabs and grilled salmon excellent as well. This place more than justifies its... More

This was our first trip to Moby Dicks, it will definitely not be our last. There was a wait to order and be seated however it wasn't too long and the end result was well worth the wait!! This place is BYOB, which we did. The staff offered us a bucket of ice to keep the beer cold while we... More

Went twice on a recent visit to Wellfleet, we had take away once as we didn't feel like waiting in line for 45 minutes, food came in about 25 and a quick drive home or you can eat outside. The lobster perfectly cooked as was the Tuna, in fact the food was faultless. Next day for lunch. No queue so... More

I found Moby Dicks to be very average every time I've gone there. The food comes out fast, and it's fine, but it's not spectacular. It's no Arnolds!

We enjoyed a nice lobster roll at Moby Dick's. Lots of lobster and not too much mayo. Very locally popular. You may have to wait a bit, but it's fairly big and the line moves fast.
