“Casual Dining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. One word of warning: The outdoor patio has a limited menu while the indoor restaurant has a much larger menu with more variety. I had to ask if they served different food indoors. We ended up eating indoors due to the limited patio menu. The fish tacos are made with Mahi Mahi as is the grilled fish sandwich. They were unable to accommodate my request for a fried fish sandwich (it was never explained why) however the grilled version was very good. This is a nice, clean, casual dining restaurant in Port A.

“Wholesome Place”

Brought the whole clan to this place. Very wholesome given the alcoholic drinks they serve. Quite ideal for kids. Good food. Great souvenir shop.

“biscuits and gravy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Moby dicks has very good biscuits and gravy. Large portions. Some times could be a little warmer but still good. Problem was that it was usually crowded and had to wait or come back another time.
