Stopped in for a late breakfast and i was the only diner in the place which made me nervous but the food was good. Shrimp omelet was stuffed with shrimp and sautéed veggies, the potatoes were crispy and the biscuit was light and delicious. Coffee had probably been sitting for a while but it was a late lunch and I'll... More

Our waiter, william,was top notch! Food was wonderful,too. Steaks come just the way you order them. If you order medium rare, you get medium rare. Giant loaded baked potato. Key lime pie made from scratch nov-jan. Very tasty! Pics look pink due to their red lights

Yeah, the look and decor is semi-tacky pirate theme, but the food was very good, the rum drinks well-made and the service prompt and friendly. There is a fun gift shop attached. Would go back.

A group of us stop after Church. We have to order fast because they stop breakfast at 10:30 on Sundays. The food is good and the service is always good. Nice group of workers. Very friendly and the owner if there will walk around and talk with everyone. Nice to know he cares about everyone that comes to his place.

At first I was taken back by the amount of decor in the place, but the wait staff was very nice. I had the shrimp po boy aka fried shrimp sammich. Granted it was not an authentic po boy, but it was simple and delicious! I would come back again!

Shrimp by the pound & great fun atmosphere. We went 3 times during our week there. Gift shop is fun & dinner was nice. Lots of touristy photo opportunities. Sit at the bar if you want to watch a game.

Moby,s is a fantastic restaurant with great food great service and great atmosphere. I would highly recommend the prime rib to anyone. Try that coconut drink that you get to have a whole coconut. It was refreshing and... More

We went here for dinner during our first visit to Port A, fun decor that kept the kids entertained and great food at reasonable prices. Good beer and wine selection. Several "boils" on the menu, we ordered the snow crab boil, generous portion and quite good. We also had king crab legs and grilled shrimp, all very good. Service was... More

If you want a good classic meal for a great value, this is the place. Highly recommend their breakfast. Great atmosphere and decor. Plus they have a very nice gift/souvenir shop.
