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.

This is a family place. When we went there was just a short wait to be seated. You order, pay then get seated and wait for your meal. We ate there our first day in Wellfleet. There was something for everyone. The seafood was very good. We would go there again.

We drove from Harwich to this restaurant, (about a half hour) as the reviews were amazing. The food is no doubt, very good and they have a few more options than our Cape Cod favourites, (different types of burgers rather than just 1, crab cake sandwiches, etc.) Prices are a tad high, i.e.: $10 burgers with fries, but not outrageously...

Had to wait in line to place our order and get a table, but as long as you expect it, it is not that bad and was nice to chat with my party before being seated. The fish was excellent, and the service once we sat down was very attentive. Bench seats are not the most comfortable. Wish I had... More

We found Moby Dick's right here on trip advisor! We went on the whale watching tour and we were starved so we decided to stop here. The girl who checked us out was so sweet and answered all our questions. She dealt with us crazies:) The food, was fabulous! We got clam chowder and fried clam strips to start. The... More

Sabrina R, Thank you for your kind words and wishing that there was a Mobys in NYC. One restaurant and gift shop are enough for me! I am hoping you will continue heading up to Wellfleet and visiting us here. That said, when I am in the city (in the off season) and am craving a lobster roll I head... More

My family has had a house in N. Eastham for over 40 years. We have seen (and eaten at) many seafood places for the classic Cape Cod experience. The food here and overall experience is one of the best on the outer cape --at the moment. The seafood is awesome. Staff is friendly & helpful. If you go knowing you... More

What a wonderful place. We ate there three times during our six day stay. I try to eat vegetarian; however, the scallops couldn't be avoided. They were mouthwatering - not coated with bread - but a light crust and seasoning. I wish I were there now, sitting at a picnic table waiting for my meal to arrive. Just perfect and... More

I don't think I will ever be able to order crab cakes again from a menu. This experience completely spoiled me. Huge chunks of meat, great flavor, coleslaw, and french fries. Great value for the experience. My only regret: I didn't buy a hat to proclaim where I had eaten....and I NEVER advertise for anyone's product....not even with pretentious purses!

This is what family vacation dining on the Cape should be. We had dinner with friends last night. While there seemed to be a long line outside, it moved quickly. Once inside, you order at the front counter, then you are seated and your food is brought to you. Be sure to check out the menu while in line outside,... More
