If you're near Wellfleet on Cape Cod and want a seafood dinner, a very casual atmosphere and fast service this is the place. Disclaimer: we always visit the Cape after Labor Day.

We have been visiting the Cape for nearly 30 years and Moby's has been a regular favorite of ours. The seafood is consistently delicious and fresh... the portions are generous and the atmosphere is casual with a byob option. The summer brings lines of fellow Cape visitors who also know this local favorite restaurant... they do move people quickly and... More

We've passed by this cute establishment several times and have always been tempted to stop by, well this time we actually stopped and dined. It is a lovely little place simple and inviting. It manages to retain that small town diner feel welcoming and cozy. The lay out reminds one of having a picnic indoors, picnic benches/tables lined with picnic... More

I have vacationed in the Cape since I was a kid and always stopped at Moby Dick's. This time, the food was a disappointment. It was over $50 for lunch - no drinks (just water) and no appetizers. My husband's scallop platter had about 8 bay scallops, dry cole slaw and mostly French fries for $21. Mine was no better.... More

First of all I would like to say thank you for your long time patronage. I really appreciate it. That said, I am disappointed that you did not mention anything while you were here. If you had let us know that there was a problem we would have fixed it immediately and made sure you left satisfied and happy. Best,... More

We've been visiting Wellfleet for many years, and we always eat at least one dinner at Moby Dick's. The menu is extensive and varied, so there is something for everyone. I have so many favorites, I can't list them all. The owners are very visible throughout the restaurant, and are eager to ensure that you are pleased in every aspect... More

Don’t let the line in front deter you. It moves quickly and we waited no more than 10 minutes. A different kind of set up as you order at a counter and then you are seated and the food is brought to you. If you like to be pampered with service go elsewhere. Even getting water was self service.

Chatting with a couple on the beach, they told us this was their go-to place to eat, so we stopped for lunch on our way to P-town. What a cool place! Looks like a sea shanty, very casual, but with food that rivals the best seafood places. The owner stopped by to check on our meals and gave us a... More

We've been going to Moby Dick's for 12 years now, on our annual trek to the "Outer" Cape. Moby's serves absolutely the BEST fish anywhere! Always moist, fresh and served just right. The prices are very reasonable, the atmosphere casual, the staff always attentive and making you feel like family. When we come out for a week, we usually eat... More

This is a busy restaurant but the service is very efficient. We called ahead for takeout and it only took 10 minutes. A large coach bus arrived as we did and they handled the crowd along with a full parking lot of customers. The whole clam bellies were excellent. This is a very good fry shack for fresh fish. We...

It's been a few years since we have been to Moby Dick's. We had noticed a few other places on The Cape haven't had the best quality over the last few years so we decided to give them a shot again since the first time we went we had good luck. Still good food & a very friendly staff. This... More
