We enjoyed Moby Dick's. The food was good. Very large establishment. Apparently, the bar was great; people seemed to be having a great time. A bit on the expensive side.

I have no idea. Suggest you call Moby Dicks (361-749-9447) and leave a message for him. He's in the restaurant almost every day.
