We have a place in Port Aransas and visit this restaurant every time! I always order the coconut shrimp. It comes with a wonderful pineapple sauce and has great flavor. The margaritas here are also the best! I would definitely recommend Moby Dicks!

When we walked in, half of the restaurant was empty but we still ended up waiting approx 30 minutes for a table. We chalked it up to them being understaffed on a Friday night (we only saw 1-2 waiters and 1 cook in the back)....More

Had a good meal. Staff was so friendly and service was great. My drink was a little heavy on the rum but still good. I will be going back.

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.
