We go here every time we visit Cape Cod and will continue to do so. It has great seafood, great atmosphere, and everyone is friendly.

Great seafood, great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. We saw this place on the way to Providence Town and decided to try it on the way back. Good choice.

The outside is nothing special. The inside very casual....but the food was great ! I was kind of worried when I had to order and pay at the counter like a fast food restaurant.....but when I tasted the food I was amazed ! The waitstaff were very friendly and made you feel like you were part of their family.

We stopped in here for lunch for whole belly fried clams. Baked potato and cole slaw served as great vegetarian options. Clams were excellent as was the service. The cole slaw was exceptionally good!

atmosphere great. 30' wait was worth it. My son and I both got lobsters and clams. Food arrived quickly and was perfect. Got a little special attention too after a small error on my bill handled very graciously!

We were on a day trip from Yarmouth to Provincetown with plans to have dinner as our last activity in Provincetown before returning to Yarmouth. We spotted this restaurant on the drive to P-town and after checking out the reviews decided to give it a try on our return. We couldn't have been more pleased, and also so glad we... More

We've been going here for 15 years and still really enjoy ourselves every time we go. We've progressed through the kids menu all the way to the grown-up stuff, and Moby's manages to satisfy our hungry male teens! This year was no exception. It can get pretty busy with long lines, but on a warm evening on vacation, we don't... More

You order from the resister, pay first, then find a seat. View is uninteresting swamp grass phragmites. Ordered swordfish blackened & grilled. Very small fish steak for the price with next to no blackened seasoning, old withered cob of corn & tiny potato. Went home hungry & disappointed. Wife did the grilled salmon on a Caesar salad.

We grew up eating lobster. We have pulled up traps and thrown the buggers in hot water. The two hard shell lobsters we had at Moby Dick's were the best we have ever eaten. They were super fresh, perfectly cooked and served correctly...with a lot of butter and napkins. We also had a dozen Wellfleet oysters which were superb. Where... More
