We had a group of 2 families with small kids (6 yrs and under) with a total of 8. We only had to wait for breakfast on a Sunday morning around 10am for about 20 min. The decor is very kid friendly and pirate themed. The kids loved looking around and checking out the koi fish pond. There is also... More

The service is super slow. And I mean s l o w .... Took 10-15 min for the waitress to first come over to our table to take our drink order. By that time, we were ready to order and put in our drink and entree orders at the same time. The wait between ordering and receiving our food was... More

Visiting port A we asked for some suggestions for dinner. Several people suggested Moby Dick's even though it did not have the best rating.... actually very underrated once you have been there. I am not a seafood person so I went for the burger, very good for those non seafood lovers. My son had the Dungeon crab broil, his grade?... More

Went with my family and was not impressed by the food at all. Definitely frozen and reheated and the drinks were overly sweet. Thought it would have such better atmosphere and why does everyone wear a '80s Hawaiian shirt that doesn't fit?

We stopped by here on a Saturday evening. They had several empty tables but still a 1 hour waiting list. The receptionist at the front desk was rude right off the bat. When I reached for a menu sitting on the counter she literally jerked it out of my hands and placed it back on the counter in front of... More

The place was interesting on the inside. We saw a lizard scuttle across the floor. The waitress was very friendly and I liked how quiet it was around the breakfast time. However the food wasn't the greatest it wasn't the worst either it was in the middle.

This was the best restaurant we tried on the island! We had over the top service! There is a good selection of food and adult beverages and everything tastes great! The fish tacos were yummy and the cucumber Margaritas were addictive! The atmosphere was really neat! Money Dick's is highly recommended!

My wife and I went here to eat after a long drive to Port Aranasas. The decor is great and the service was fine. The food was another story. It was all touted as fresh but it tasted like it was fresh from a freezer. The upscaled margarita was rediculously priced. I don't think we'll ever go back as there... More
