Had a burger, shrimp dinner and the shrimp PO boy. Dinner wasn't as much of a value as the sandwiches, food was very good though. Lots to look at when eating!

This was our first time to eat at Moby Dick's. The atmosphere was better than the food. If your looking for a fun place to take the kids while in Port A then this is a great place to do that. Compared to other places we've eaten in and around Port A I thought the food wasn't as good as... More

The food and service is excellent at Moby Dicks. We have been visiting Port "A" for the past 22 years, and it is our favorite place!

If you love seafood this is NOT the place for you. We both had the fried seafood platter. Everything was heavily breaded and fried to death. You could not taste what you were eating. Shrimp. Oyster. Fish. My mouth is cut from trying to eat this food. The fries and garlic toast were easier to eat than the seafood. The... More

Went to have brunch with my daughter because we missed breakfast. To my surprise my daughter ate all her meal. Staff was very polite and helpful with choices and knew the menu well enough for suggesrions. I wish I had ordered a dish to go for later.

This place was really slow to get started as far as service is concerned. We were seated immediately, but then it was at least 10 minutes before anyone took our drink order. They seemed to be a little confused about who was responsible for this table and someone finally noticed us looking bored, sad, and hungry and came to wait... More

The drinks were really good but the food had no taste. It was really greasy and it all tasted the same. Service was ok but not great. Won't be back here.

Finally decided to try Mobys after passing it several times. We were there for breakfast and aside from the surroundings it was nothing special, I had the pancakes w a side of sausage and my wife had the Huevos Rancheros. Both meals were average at best. The surroundings are the attraction here, funk to the max. Would be a great... More
