Stopped for a quick lunch on the way to P-town. Moby Dicks is just 11 miles outside of P-town. Cute place but a little pricy for lunch. Tasty food! Fixed our hunger feeling. Would only take a pass nxt time due to the price.

We thought that everything was acceptable, but not amazing. We'd steer clear of this crowded parking lot i a town that has amazing food (just not here). Our entrees were wholesome, bland, and unimaginative. We wished that we has gone to Macs or the Beachcomber.More

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.
