This is now my new favorite seafood restaurant in all of New England. I'm so glad a friend suggested it to my fiance and me. The food was so amazing that we went twice in 2 weeks and I've been dreaming of going back since the last time we were there. The setup was a little different than your typical... More

My family has been eating at this restaurant for over 18 years. We have a cottage almost into Provincetown, and we will drive to this place for the best seafood. The owners and waitstaff are very friendly and the service is great. You can bring in your own beer or wine and they will put it in a bucket of... More

We made our annual ride to Provincetown today on our vacation, and stopped by Moby Dick's for lunch. What a great meal! The service was second to none, most of the girls working there were from other countries, they could not have been any more polite or friendly, and also very efficient. The food was fantastic, my Cod was cooked... More

Terrific seafood, great staff. Casual. Almost everything is a la cart, which can be a little pricy for when you're eating with paper and plastic. Fun gift shop too...I got turtle lights for my patio!

This is an interesting place. We stopped mid-day for lunch on our way out of the Cape and back home. They have an extensive menu including some non-seafood fare. You begin by placing your order at the main counter as you enter and then are seated at a table where they bring your dinners once ready. The atmosphere is beach... More

We have gone to Moby Dick's for a number of years now. The food is good. The atmosphere is ok. Get there before 4:30 pm for dinner or you will wait in a long line outside. Sit in the downstairs room in the back viewing the marsh. The fish sandwich and salad are good. The food is more expensive than... More

Went for dinner w my husband and one and half year old daughter. This place was great for kids, they brought crayons and we had a roomy table in the back so we didn't bother other diners. Food selection for kids was great, especially compared to other restaurants. Service was great, helpful servers w a smile. Food was just ok.... More

Yalanomata, I am not sure how to respond as on the one hand so many things were good but on the other you were not impressed. I guess I would ask that you give us another try. Fair enough? More

I don't know where to start this place was amazing from the hostess to the owner I can't say enough. The food is fresh as can be and prepared perfectly. The owner even came by to show my son how to eat and get every last morsel of his lobster. He also told us all about the history of the... More

Really looked forward to the lobster roll this year, but the lobster, though fresh, was a little tasteless--hardly up to what I was expecting. Good corn on the cob.

Lloyd1129, We use tail and claw meat in our lobster rolls. We do not add in any fillers (i.e. celery or onion) and we do not season. We just add a touch of mayo and place the lobster salad in a bit of lettuce in a toasted New England style roll. It is very simple. That said, fresh lobster meat... More
