Description: Closed for the winter. See you May 2017 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.

From the moment we arrived at the restaurant we felt welcomed. We waited outside in a quickly moving line and were promptly handed menus so we could decide what we wanted. The place is BYOB, which was nice touch as it made the wait time fly and drastically cut down our bill.
The menu all around is extremely fresh and well thought out. My girlfriend and I split a bowl of the seafood gumbo and it was just the right amount of spice. Todd the owner stopped by our table and suggested we add a bit of Tabasco sauce and it complemented the gumbo perfectly.

We ordered the broiled scallops and a Caesar salad with salmon for our meals. The seafood was cooked perfectly, and we both cleaned our plates!
The side of corn on the cob was amazing! (So sweet, and didn't even need butter.)

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Overall, the whole ordering and serving process was flawless. I was wondering how the food would find our table, but it did within a short period of time and was great. However, they organize it..it works. Also, it was a nice change from the Cape Cod places that are simply order and take a tray to eat. This was way more relaxing, more of a restaurant experience, but with the casual Cape feel.

The decor was warm and inviting and the music was very relaxing.

We will surely be back and bring friends and family with us! Thanks Todd for a great meal & experience!

Moby Dick's in Wellfleet on Rt. 6 is wonderful. You order your food and it is brought to your table. You do quite often have to wait on line, but once inside you have some of the freshest seafood available. One time when I ate here, the clams had just been brought in from neighboring Chatham, that day.
If you hate lines, have someone in your party save your place, while you go to the goft shop. Also, DON'T FORGET to bring your own wine or beer. They don't sell it here.

Great seafood joint. Service is just fantastic. Food is very very good. Expensive but not abnormal for this part of the world.

Moby Dicks is my favorite seafood stop on the lower Cape! Conveniently located on Route 6, one has to time it right when going to Moby's as the line is often out the door. Nevertheless, service is quick and with a smile, staff, oftentimes European, is well trained and courteous and the fish is wonderfully fresh. I have been enjoying Moby Dicks for over 20 years and we enjoy introducing friends and new Cape visitors to Moby's every time we have the opportunity to do so.

We noticed the place that was full with a long line when we came to Cape the night before. On the way back, since it was late lunch time there was not a line. So we just took a chance and it was a pleasant surprise. Food was fresh and carefully made. BYOB is a plus and we dined with wine we had on hand. Friendly staff and nice breezy dining area. It is not cheap but well worth the money and we finished everything we ordered.
