We noticed Moby Dick's on our way to Provincetown. It was early lunchtime when we returned. Cars in front of us were all turning in, which reinforced our desire to have lunch there. On entering, you order and pay, sit down, and your food is brought to you. We knew we wanted lobster rolls so we really didn't read the... More

Very fun place. We were looking for a more casual spot for dinner and I had yet to eat a lobster roll. This is an "order at the counter" spot, which I thought worked well. They still have a full menu but with a casual feel. Also, it is BYOB. We stopped at a liquor store and picked up a... More

Great food and awesome staff here. The prices are a little high but you get really good food and enough food to fill you up. Would go back in a heart beat.

We have been going to Moby Dicks for years! We love it but we were there this past weekend and we ordered a lobster roll and the fried seafood platter, to our disappointment the portion sizes have gotten much smaller and the prices have gone up.

Delicious seafood can be found at this casual eatery. Seafood is rather pricy on the Cape, so this isn't a cheap family outing, but we always enjoy eating here. Just be prepared to wait, lines are very long during the summer all through the evening.

We have been going to Moby Dick's every summer for years and years. Get there before 6 pm if you don't want to wait in line. BYOB which is just fine with me. We've tried almost everything on the menu and most of the fried food is good. Generous portions and good service. I wish they used fewer disposable plates,... More

We hoped for a good meal and I ordered Fish n´chips. Turned out it was served on a paper plate and the tartar sause was in a sealed box. Like the one you get on Mc D :(

We have enjoyed Moby Dick's for years as it right down the street from our family home. Once summer gets into full swing, the line for seating gets very long, so plan on being there before 6. Seating is tables and picnic tables indoors, and there isn't usually a long wait if there is a medium-sized line. You are able... More

When we first opened Moby Dick’s in ‘83, we had no idea we’d become an establishment on Cape Cod. We simply wanted to start a BYOB restaurant that had fresh seafood, a relaxed environment, and a friendly staff that would make people feel at home. Well, three decades later, we’re still doing exactly that, opening every season in May to the delight of locals and visitors alike. Some people stop in for our lobster rolls while others come for an old-fashioned bucket of steamers. But everyone knows they can come to us for fresh family fun and a dining experience in Wellfleet they'll never forget.
