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.

Touristy. Average food. Grilled shrimp on salad was over cooked. Fried calamari was small and tasteless. Friendly staff.

We always want to wow you with our food, that's for sure! It''s wonderful that the staff left that personal mark, but we hope to knock your socks off next season.

Best,
Todd B, Owner

We visit the Cape every October. We always find time to come to Moby Dick’s. This year was no exception. Great clam strips - my personal favorite. My husband had Pan seared scallops which he said was also fabulous.

We enjoy the casual atmosphere!

There were eight of us on a Saturday night, so we had to wait about a half hour for a table, which turned out to be upstairs at a large picnic table. Ordered at the counter before being seated, and food was brought to us. Pleasant and good service.

We went by on a recommendation to pick up dinner for a sunset beach picnic. It was a brisk evening so we ordered "chowdah" and bisque. it was delicious.

welcoming, casual place, affordable sushi. many regulars. staff was very accommodating to other guests, made suggestions and accommodated special requests. if sushi is new to you and you don't want to spend top dollar at a fancy place, then get your Pequod over to Moby Dick's, Ishmael.

Douglas, With all due respect I think you have the wrong restaurant. We are on Cape Cod and we do not serve sushi. best, Todd Barry (Owner)
