We just visited on 7-23-16 for dinner and had a larger party, 4 adults and 5 children (needing one highchair). The restaurant was very busy and had quite the wait (quoted 45mins to an hour). After over 90 mins, we were 'squeezed' into two 4-top tables pushed together...in which no highchair was at the table. I asked our seater that... More

This is a family tradition each summer we take a weekend and hit the beach and go to Moby Dicks.

We wanted to try someplace new. Walking into this place was pretty cool. Great atmosphere, cool decorations. Then we ordered food. Not impressed at all... Could have saved money and gone to Dairy Queen. Will not go back..

So this place is your quintessential tourist trap beach restaurant with gift store. We only tried this place out due to having a large group that they said they could accommodate. I don't mind waiting especially in seasons but a 100 min wait for table is a bit excessive. The drinks are pretty good at the bar but they are... More

We were in Port Aransas for the UT Marine Science Center summer camp for young scientists (3rd - 8th grade) during June. While there, we had the opportunity to eat at Moby Dick's. Great fun for the entire family. The fare was good and the decor amusing. Travel friendly prices also.

Thank Tammy B
