Our service was less than desirable this year compared to the prior year. The guy was having a terrible night. The food came out cold but the store removed the charge for the cold food and then sent out extra salad for the missing salads that were not ordered. It was busy but not overly busy. The prior year 2016... More

We were there on a busy Saturday, the restaurant was packed. The person that took the best care of us was Charlie! He was friendly and professional! He was attentive without being overbearing. He deserves a promotion! The dinner was wonderful!!!!! The whole experience was wonderful....

Visited Moby Dicks's for dinner and drinks after a day to the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better place! The menu was perfect - excellent seafood selection for me, plenty of non-seafood choices for hubby, and a good children's menu for our picky 8 year old. The drinks were generously made - not ice and fruit juice with a... More

The food was very good, but the atmosphere set the place apart from the rest. The decor and atmosphere are very nostalgic nautical/pirate oriented. My grandson had a great time exploring all the different treasures in the place. Great family oriented restaurant.

Everyone in my party enjoyed their food whether seafood or burger or potato, all around goodness. Probably the best cornbread I have ever had, almost a cake, but not--moist, sweet, delicious. Good sweet tea. Awesome drinks too, particularly the roasted colada! Dessert menu is a little scarce, but who has the room! Great food and fun atmosphere, kind of loud... More

Drove to Port A for spring break just to enjoy some fresh seafood. Chose Moby Dick's for the atmosphere - which is very "tropical - touristy!" We loved the decor. All of us had a shrimp platter with 8 fried shrimp. It was delicious. We substituted a baked potato for the fries and got a huge potato with all the... More

We wondered in here looking for crab legs. We were not let down! Their steam pots were amazing. The crab was meaty, and steamed perfectly. The oyster Rockafeller..... amazing. The service was great. We were the last to leave and never felt rushed by our server. We loved it so much, we did it again the next day for lunch!

The restaurant was overall pretty clean. The staff was extremely friendly. We had calamari and hush puppies for our appetizers. The calamari was okay, nothing special. The hush puppies were flavorful and among the best we have ever had. My husband had the coconut shrimp dish which was delicious! I had the grilled mahi-mahi dinner, it was good. We shared... More
