Happy to see they have recovered from the devastation of the hurricane. Our server was very attentive and got us everything we asked for. However, we did wait 43 minutes for a hamburger and a fish basket. They were not on a wait and it...More

What can you say... It's Moby Dick's! Great to see them open again after Hurricane Harvey! New renovations and still the same GREAT Atmosphere! Limited Menu right now but hey, they are up and running and are survivors of the storm!

Meals were very good and service was acceptable. The rib eye steak was delicious. Table 59 is right under the HVAC duct-work and over time, the condensation built up on the duct work and dripped on my wife. A minor inconvenience, but it might be...More
