After riding bikes in Provincetown, MA on the national seashore, we were starving. We were driving back to Boston and just randomly decided to eat here. The first good sign was how busy it was. We decided on lobster rolls and lobster bisque. Food was...More

Chrissy, August is peak season on Cape Cod. This time of year you will have to wait no matter where you go. And, to respond to your other comments: 1. 150 for 5 people = 30 per person. This is not unreasonable for top quality...More

Overpriced scallops with small portion size. Burger undercooked ( medium well should not be red throughout). Waited full 10 minutes for soda to be fixed—all seltzer. Wait in line (or get right in)somewhere else for better selection, better prices, and better portion size.More

It's a shame you left with this impression, Kara. We always encourage you to speak up when a drink or burger is made incorrectly so we can replace or remake it right away. Regarding portion sizes, we assure you the value of our dishes is...More

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.
