“Great Place for Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We have driven past Moby Dick's for many years because we always thought it was a tourist trap. Finally, a friend of ours told us to stop there because it was so good. My husband and I did when we were on a fishing trip this July and it was wonderful. Great food, I had the best hamburger there I have had in a long time. My husband had a bucket of mussels that were outstanding. Both times we were there the owner(she) was working the whole time. That is usually what makes a business succeed.

“Cape Perfect!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

There are too many awesome things to say about this place. First, it's right on route 6 in Wellfleet. If you go anywhere on the outer cape you will pass it. The food is fantastic, simple and delicious. The best part is you can bring your own beer or wine. They provide buckets of ice, wine glasses and bottle openers. It is very beach friendly. You still feel like your on vacation when you are sitting in the open air dinning room on the red checkered table clothes. Grab a six pack and come in your flip flops. This place is cape perfect.

“Excellent food, cool atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Knew it would be good when I had to wait about 10 minutes just to park. BYOB, you wait in a long line, but you get your menu and order before you sit, so overall wait time isn't bad. You also pay up front, which is nice because you don't have to deal with waiting for the check.

Food came quickly and was excellent. I had broiled scallops with asparagus and corn on the cob, so good. Desserts looked awesome, but didn't have one. Friends had crab cakes which I tried, and they were excellent. Would definitely come back,

Christopher, Thank you for your review. Next time you are here save room for dessert. Try the key lime pie. I guarantee it will be the best you ever had!

“Good food, amazing service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We stopped by on our way back from P-town which was so crowded you couldn't even park!
Moby Dick's was a busy place but we didn't have to wait. We chose to sit in the screened pavilion which was delightful and captured the beautiful ocean breezes. I had the fried oyster dinner which was so much food I couldn't finish it! Very tasty. Hubby had the fried cod dinner. He said it was OK, but he is a man of few words and I noticed he finished every bite!
