Moby Dick’s is the best Cape Cod seafood restaurant for friends and families to meet, eat and just have a good time  located in Wellfleet MA . Taking the New England clam shack to a new level, they will offer you and your family a great experience. 460089_10151394135215807_337514026_o

The freshest seafood, the best lobsters, Wellfleet littlenecks, Wellfleet oysters, Atlantic Cod, fried clams and clam chowder are just a few of the local items we serve up daily. We aim to be the best.

We have a fantastic kid’s menu & Gluten Free menu.

We love large groups, small groups, any group. We would be delighted to host your special Cape Cod event.

We are a BYOB establishment so grab your favorite beer or wine and head right over. (Bring Your Own Beer & Wine…No Charge!) We will provide a free bucket of ice, cups, and openers.

Open at 11:30 am everyday for lunch and dinner from the first Friday in May to Columbus Day,  through Columbus Day.

After exploring since 7 am this morning taking a break for early dinner…. LOVED the Wellfleet oysters, so FRESH… enjoyed the steamers so much last night, I had some more, along with local mussels in their bucket with an ear of fresh steamed corn…. GREAT FOOD, WARM AND FRIENDLY SERVICE! Really enjoyed this quiet time between lunch and dinner… the parking lot is starting to fill up with families young and old…. let the summer  weekend begin!

I ate there for the first time last night and both the food and the staff were wonderful! I was really impressed by the greeter by the door, he gave us menus, recommendations and even a bucket of ice and cups for our wine. We’ll definitely be going back!

We ate here twice during our one week stay on Cape Cod. Loved it! The staff made eating gluten free a no-hassle experience and the GF changes did not affect the quality of the food. The scallop sandwich was awesome! We will be back! Thank you!

We stopped here on our way back from P-town. I have never had a lobster roll so this was my first and it was really good! I will definitely order one again based on my experience here. The best part about the restaurant is their service, such nice young men and women serving there! And the environment there is very laid back and relaxing. Great place!

First trip to this place. We love the layout and the atmosphere. Had boiled lobstah and lobstah roll platter. Both were quite delicious. I highly recommend this during your Vacation travels.

Our favorite place to dine at the Cape.  Once again had a fabulous meal. The line was long but well worth the wait. We always return to Moby Dicks every year (20+ years) because of the great food but more importantly , the great service. One of the employees came by with slices of watermelon while we waited. We enjoyed scallops, burgers, lobster, seared tuna, crab cakes and everything was delicious as always. The employees are always courteous and pleasant. Sarah (from Ireland) who took our orders was so lovely. We were a group of 7 adults and a baby and had a fabulous time. Thanks again to Moby Dicks for always making our yearly visit so wonderful. See you next year!
