Don't let the long line out front dissuade you. It moves rapidly and the food is fantastic. Always our first choice for meals on the Cape. Casual and relaxed. Can accommodate a large party.

The food is outstanding, the staff extra helpful and very friend...we can't get enough of Moby's! I've probably had a dozen lobster from there this summer and each one was better than the next!

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.
