We went with friends that have a place down here and love the place. I had fried oysters that had more breading than oyster. I finally pulled the breading off to get to the oysters. My husband had what was suppose to a shrimp boil but was lacking in flavor. Service was not that good either. We will never make... More

On Friday, 2/17/2017, my husband and I took a party of 12 to this restaurant for dinner. We had visited this establishment 3 months ago to get reservations for 2/17. We were told they did not make reservations, but, to call before we left our rental and they would prepare for us. We did call--were told no reservations, no setting... More

My family and I ate lunch here a few days ago on vacation. We were seated quickly. It wasn't too busy because it was later in the afternoon. Our server wasn't too friendly but we got our drinks and our food fast. I had a cheeseburger and it was tasty. I was kind of surprised that it tasted so good.... More

I get to Port A once or twice a year. For restaurants, Moby Dick's is my personal favorite. Five of us went to dinner the other night. The dinner special for the night was steaks-three different cuts to choose from. Total bill for the night, with a handful of beers amongst us, was $115. Great price, great food, great atmosphere...

... on at least Wednesday evenings. Limited to margaritas and draft beer (the do have Shiner Bock on draft), $1 for 9 oz, $2 for a pint. A full bar is there. We had the grilled shrimp, and they were excellent - NOT over-seasoned or rubbery. The green beans were "southern style" - cooked to mush, but somewhat tasty. Service... More

Shrimp poor boy has huge shrimp and a great bun. Fun atmosphere with lots going on. If you are looking for a sandwich just pull in under the trees and see the selections that are sure to satisfy. Good selection and large menu of platters and dinners.

We had a good lunch at the Moby Dick. My husband had the fish and it was very good and fresh. I had a sandwich which was good as well. The service was fine. The prices were moderate to expensive but this is a tourist town so that is not unusual. We spent a bit of time in the gift... More
