  1. I had a 2 pounder July (early) for 32.00 at Pearl with veg and potato..amazing...worth every penny...

    1. We like Moby Dick's for basic lobster, always very good, sometimes amazing. We like it with a wedge salad, the only time we eat that particular retro dish, but it is a great app while waiting for the lobster.

      1. Moby Dick's doesn't get a lot of love on this board, but we generally visit at least twice on each of our 4-5 weeks in the Cape each year (we go during the shoulder seasons, so maybe that's why we love it- we haven't had to endure the zoo-like atmosphere of the summer crowds). I have never had anything at Moby's (including basic steamed lobster dinner) that I wouldn't order again. And, it's BYOB. Friendly Fisherman is great, as well. In fact, all of the places you've mentioned are good, as is Pearl (VERY good), suggested by phelana.

        2. There are several reasons i prefer Moby Dick's over the many other places with similar menus in town. The owners are always there asking about your meals. It's BYOB. It's super kid friendly. Most important though, fresh, delicious, consistent meals. We've eaten there like five times already this summer. Yes, Pearl has more ambiance, Bookstore a nicer view, but there's a reason for the enormous line at Moby's. BC
