Our mussels were ice cold (but the dipping bread that came with it was hot) and it took 15 mins to get our drinks both times we ordered which made us late to our next engagement that evening.

With the cooler weather upon us, need to look to have heaters for the outside dinning area. Food and Beer are always good.

Moby Dick Brewing Co. has a plate for everyone. From seafood to salad to vegan options. Their beer selection compliments the ambiance of the restaurant. They have adapted well with COVID-19 guidelines providing outdoor-sidewalk seating. You not only have one waiter/waitress...they all check on you equally. MDBC is family oriented with great staff and patrons. Not once have we've been dissatisfied.

This is my favorite restaurant. The food is always good and the service is on point. I love their blueberry beer and I don't even drink beer. My favorite dish is the Marinated Chicken Sandwich.

We both ordered the mussels. They were one of the best we’ve ever had. We dined outside and the cobblestone street made it noisy.

Pros: Good atmosphere, large selection of speciality made beers- if you drink and wonderful waitress
Cons: food overcooked and I get covid I am a nurse by trade but the hostess purposely sat our parties across the restaurant from each other when the table “near ours”-(6 feet distance to maintain covid protocol) remained open the majority of our time there.
Found out after our “other table” was never asked if they wanted dessert but being so far away we couldn’t ask if they wanted any but it didn’t matter because we had already gotten the bills. Also our bills weren’t together so we had to pay twice We won’t be back.

The staff at Moby Dick Brewery, did a great job - all the Covid regulations were followed; all the staff wore masks, even in the kitchen as I walked by, tables were well spaced, both inside and outside where we had lunch. We came for the beer, but the great food was a pleasant surprise. I had 2 1/2 large portions of fish&chips, someone had the Steak Tips, another had a tasty Blueberry Salad, and my husband had the Lobster roll, he gave it 4 out of 5. We all thought the French fries tasted fantastic, they were thinly sliced and done just right. I was told the clam chowder was very good, no need for additional seasoning. The Beer was great- Moby Dick has one of the best blueberry ales I’ve had. The Helf was nice, as was the Nitro Stout, it was quite smooth. Both the Irish Amber ale and the arms and legs IPA were highly rated. We would all be happy to go back anytime. One thing to consider with the outside seating, the traffic tends to be speedy, and I think people forget the transition from paved road to cobblestones when they jet by.

Really enjoyed the outside dining experience. I thought the food was great. I had the lobster grilled cheese, and it was absolutely delicious. One teeny complaint was that the chairs were a little short for the table, but that was minor.The waiter was attentive, polite, and friendly. Great atmosphere and great food. We will definitely go there again.

Fresh beer, great food, good service, and the option to sit outside and watch people walk by or inside in the a.c. Growlers, crowlers, and 4-pack cans to go! Take out options. Interesting menu. Make it a point to get downtown to Moby Dick!

The beers were quite tasty, as was the food. The service was very warm and attentive. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the cars navigate the cobblestone street. This is a nice spot that we go back to.
