We visit Moby’s as it is affectionately known once nearly every time we visit the Cape. They make good versions of all the usual Cape favorites such as fried clams, calamari (squid) and fish ‘n chips plus soups such as clam chowder and lobster bisque as well as sandwiches such as lobster rolls and grilled tuna.
A personal favorite is the onion “flower” (deep fried whole onion) appetizer; it’s pretty and big and good for a group to share while they wait for the rest of the food to arrive.
The service is friendly and personal and you can often see the wife of the owner walking through the dining room greeting the regular guests by name. The dining area itself is a large, breezy, screened porch with mix of picnic tables suitable for large groups and some smaller tables.
Moby’s doesn’t take reservations. Since it has a bit of a cult following on the Cape, the line to get in can be quite long during peak summer lunch and dinner hours. To avoid long waits, go during the “off” hours between lunch and dinner which is roughly 2:30-4:30 PM.
An additional attraction is that you can bring your favorite wine to consume along with your meal.
