.The food was good and the shrimp is from the Texas Gulf, or so they say and I have no reason to doubt them. My shrimp and fish was good, nothing special but good, and my wife enjoyed her steam pot. She said the potatoes tasted a little old but the rest of the food in the steam pot was good. We enjoyed the experience but the dining area is noisy from other dinners but this was probably because of a large group and possibly poor acoustics in the large open room. The service was good.

We were looking for a close place to our hotel. We found luckily this place. Its a good decorated place, good for kids and families. We have enjoyed also being a young couple, and asking the chicken breast and the combo shrimps. Good food, good service, good place. Maybe a little touristic, but 7/10.

The atmosphere was a little cheesy but fun and tried to almost have a Disneyland pirates vibe. The server was training a newbie and they were both very nice. The trainer really knew the menu well...much better than servers in nearby restaurants. The food arrived in a timely manner and was hot. The avocado burger and their gumbo are both tasty. The teriyaki sauce in the teriyaki burger is more flavorfull than restaurants nearby. I felt good about the taste and the amount of food. I'll definitely go back again when we visit.

Interesting décor - beachy, fake fish coming out of the wall, crab pots hanging from the ceiling, and very typical fried menu. No one in our party of 7 had any complaints. It was just ok. Nothing to write home about. Service was fine but not stellar. Food was fine but not memorable.

Moby Dick's is relaxed, laid back and there is plenty of space and ambient noise that kids didn't seem to be intruding on the atmosphere and eating experience of others. Had the school of fired fish filets (a lot of fish) and the fried shrimp were large & tasty. The sides & garlic bread were good. I don't think what we ordered was anything special but next time it won't be a eat-n-go rushed stop for our schedule and we'll be trying some of the more specialized dishes. The meal, service, atmosphere and theme were all a great experience - so we'll be back again.
