A very nice casual restaurant in Wellfleet that has wonderful seafood and a friendly wait staff, and a large menu selection that is sure to please everyone. Be sure to try the Cape Cod Salad with grilled salmon, it's the best. Judy

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.
