Moby Dick's is my destination of choice for fresh local lobster when we visit Wellfleet. Last night I ordered the "optimum" size (per the restaurant's menu) - 1 and 1/2 pounds. It was served with a piece of corn on the cob, which I passed off to another member of the family; my focus was the lobster. As is always the case, I finished my meal a good 1/2 hour after everyone else in my party (and they were all very patient); I like to enjoy my lobster slowly and luxuriously, systematically section by section. And as always, it was an outstanding dining experience. Moby's owner, as on previous visits, makes the rounds and talks with all his guests. His enthusiasm for happy customers and a quality dining experience is genuine, and appreciated.
NOTE: Generally, it's a good idea to get here before 6 if you don't like waiting in line. The wait can be 45 minutes to an hour before getting to the front desk to place your order. Having said that, even waiting in line at Moby's is a pleasant experience. Restaurant staff often bring slices of watermelon to those who are waiting, and if you've brought a bottle of wine (there's no wine, liquor, or beer served here) they will bring you a bucket with ice and plastic cups. It's fun just perusing the menu; if lobster isn't your first choice, there are MANY other options, both broiled and fried, and all excellent.
If the above summary doesn't make it apparent: Moby Dick's is one of my favorites!
