“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I live on the Cape, and I am not a huge fan of the big gimmicky lobster shack type places.
Thankfully a few great places do exist.. Moby Dick's is one of the best hands down. My wife and I love this place. It's casual yet professional. Service is fantastic. You have people checking on you all the time including the owner who is so pleasant and helpful, he is outstanding! I love the food as well. Great chowder, fish and chips, and calamari. I recommend this place to all my friends and family who come to visit, Keep up the great job.

“2 times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We ate at Moby Dick's 2 times in 24 hours. The steamers we my boyfriend's favorite. It was nice to sit upstairs. It felt as if we were eating outside (with all the windows open) without all the bugs. The staff was very nice and helpful.

“Hard to give a restaurant that serves on paper plates five stars, but it comes close.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you can overlook the paper plates, plastic utensils and ordering at a counter Moby Dick's deserves five stars. The food is OUTSTANDING! I had a dozen "Wellfleet" oysters that were perfect in every way. The lobster chowder was beyond reproach. The lobster roll was perfect as were the french fries. The iced tea was great. The table service was attentive (they serve the counter ordered meals). The Key Lime was as good as the best I've ever eaten in Florida and believe me I've eaten plenty.
