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.

Our 3rd time back and food is still amazing. My wife got the crab cake platter and I got the crab cake sandwich. The best crab cakes we have had. The latter bisque was pretty good but could have used some lobster chunks. We will be returning.

Glad you enjoy the carb cakes. We use jumbo lump meat and a special recipe!

Mob scene in summer but worth the wait. Informal, order at the counter and wait to be served. Great buys in week after Memorial Day. Our lobster and clams were excellent. Great Key
Lime pie. Loud friendly crowd. Servers mostly charming Brits.

This was restaurant week in Wellfleet. We had their special: six oysters, a whole lobster, and key lime pie for $25. What a deal! Everything was yummy! We wished we had come here every night we were in town. You cannot beat this place for a really excellent Cape Cod experience.

Moby Dick's is a fun and casual restaurant that is a great place for families. The seafood is always fresh and delicious. There is often a long waiting line that moves quickly but it is well worth the wait. There is a good variety of grilled and fried seafood along with non-seafood selections so there is something for everyone. Moby Dick's is a BYOB establishment.

My sisters and I spent 3 nights in Wellfleet. Two of those nights we ate at Moby Dicks. The first night I ordered the cod - it was one of the best meals I've had in a long while. Tender, flaky, and fresh. The next night I got a lobster roll - delicious. The waitstaff was friendly, and the owner stopped by to make sure everything was fine. It isn't fancy - but the food is first rate. If you are in the area stopping here needs to be a priority. I have already recommended it to a friend who is coming to the Cape next month.
