A meal at this good-natured, rough-hewn fish shack with a hyper-nautical theme is an absolute Cape Cod tradition for some people. There's a giant blackboard menu (order up front, and food is brought to you); a big, breezy screened-in porch in which to eat; and red-checked tablecloths. Go for the Nantucket Bucket—a pound of whole-belly Monomoy steamers, a pound of native mussels, and corn on the cob served in a bucket. Also consider the rich and creamy lobster bisque
or the complete lobster-in-the-rough dinner. Bring your own libations, and if you need to kill time (the lines are sometimes daunting), stop inside Moby's Cargo, the bustling gift shop next door.

In fact, we would never have stopped in a million years, but Moby Dick's reputation had reached us all the way in Pennsylvania. It's all about the clam chowder, really. Don't get me wrong, the lobster roll is fabulous and so are the oysters. But the clam chowder tastes like clams! And that is a rare and wonderful thing. Be forewarned that Moby Dick's can get very crowded. It's good to go at off hours or right as they open. But if you have to wait
in line, you'll find the crowd is affable and the servers are terrific.

Ordered my first whole lobster and got a personal lesson from the owner on the best way to crack it open and savor it. It took awhile to fine a place to park and we had to wait in line for a long time to eat here but it was totally worth it.
