The folks who work here are nice and the lunch menu has plenty of offerings, but the last time I dined here it was the Sandcastle and it was better. So good, in fact, that we always made a point of stopping for lunch and sometimes went out of our way to do so. This time around Wife & I... More

Great value here. If you're looking for fine dining by candle light, you've come to the wrong place. We got the "all you can eat fish-n-chips" and the first round was so big, we had to take some of the home for later and couldn't even ask for more ... The clam chowder that came with it was yummy too... More

Really good fish and chips and clam chowder here. Came back later for a milk shake, it had real strawberries in it.

Be sure that the person who takes your order doesn't turn it over to some one else without your instructions (food requirements).

I didn't realize the fish would be fried. Good value, tasty, but I prefer to not eat fried fish. Outdoor or indoor eating. Very casual.

Waitstaff too busy to talk let alone wait on us,short with us. Our food came way over cooked and blech . Chewy and dark dark brown. No flavor and for a fish town I could make my own frozen fish nuggets. Will not suggest to hotel guests when asked.

My wait time for ordering food and finally getting the food was nearly 30 minutes. This was a Tuesday around 1:00 pm. and the restaurant was busy. But 30 minutes for a burger & fries? The burger was good; the fries were lousy. They were the crinkled frozen kind, not fresh, and they were limp and just warm. I didn't... More

Great chowder and fish and chips! We ate here on our last night in town and we're sorry we hadn't tried it earlier. Lots of items on the menu we will try next time. We met and visited with the owner, what a nice guy!

I've been to Moby Dick's several times. They have seafood, burgers, wonderful fried bread and many more menu items. Oh yeah... also sweet potato fries, malts, shakes. A busy place but delicious fresh food. In the summer you can sit at picnic tables outside if you want. Employees very personable too. I will go here again and again.
