Very fun place. We were looking for a more casual spot for dinner and I had yet to eat a lobster roll. This is an "order at the counter" spot, which I thought worked well. They still have a full menu but with a casual...More

Delicious seafood can be found at this casual eatery. Seafood is rather pricy on the Cape, so this isn't a cheap family outing, but we always enjoy eating here. Just be prepared to wait, lines are very long during the summer all through the evening.More

We hoped for a good meal and I ordered Fish n´chips. Turned out it was served on a paper plate and the tartar sause was in a sealed box. Like the one you get on Mc D :(

I have only been there June - August. They are probably seasonal. Sorry you missed a great lobster.
Do they take credit cards?

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.
