If you like to wait for FOREVER, then this is the place for you. We went at 8:00 on a week night and we waiting at least 45 minutes to be seated (with plenty of open tables) and once we were seated the service, again, took FOREVER. We waited over 1.5 hours before we actually got our food after ordering. We will not be back here EVER!

We decided to go to Moby Dick's after a local said it was the best place for seafood. When we got there it was around 4pm and they told us it would be a 45 minute wait which ended up being closer to an hour and a half. Be prepared for a wait, but they do have a nice shop in the front so most people just grab a drink from the bar and shop while they wait. Not a bad deal when you're on vacation. My husband got the fried fish which was delicious and a very large portion. I had the crab boil which was the best meal on our week long vacation. The decor was fun and all the kids enjoyed their meals. I will definitely be back on my next trip to Port A.

We went to Moby Dick's twice. Both times were great. The hostess' need a little training in customer service but both of our servers were great! Our first server was Krystal and she was excellent! She gave great advice on food choices. Our second server was Brittany and she was awesome. We had a party of 15 and it never phased her. She was on top of her game! The Texas Toothpicks and the Calamari was the best. It is a little pricey but so is every other joint on the island.

Waited an hour and a half to sit down and waited an other 40 minutes for our food. My brothers steak was so dry and over cooked. It was so loud you couldn't hear your self think. Would not recommend going here!
