The food was good but I'm not so sure it's worth the one hour wait. During our vacation, we found other restaurants that were better that came with a lot less wait time. Definitely a tourist trap.

Unique place with perfect lobster rolls: Super fresh, lots of lobster on them and further nothing much. Great place for lunch or a bite in between. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Simply one of my best eating experiences on the Cape.

After a long drive, we arrived at Moby Dicks in Wellfleet! Although the line was long, it was well worth the wait! I have been there several times this year already and the wait staff greeted me and my family like long lost friends. Although they were busy, meal was served quickly and everything was cooked to perfection. As always,... More

Nice casual dining for lobster feast and fixings. Average food and preparation quality for northeast seafood. I don't quite understand the long lines, but I guess everyone wants to have a lobster between 6 and 7 pm.

The food was very good. The service was very good and we never ran dry on drinks. And you definitely want to save room for desert.

We have been eating here for years so this review is overdue. This is a consistently great restaurant where everyone we have been with can find something. The food is delicious, the owners are present and attentive, and staff is extremely well trained. Don't worry about a line outside - it moves quickly enough and they always make sure you... More

Go on line and see the menu. LOTS to choose from!!! If you encounter a line when you go, they will give u a menu to look at before entering. The line forms outside and each group goes in to order at the counter. Helped to a table and food brought to you. We were a party of 10 and... More
