We were able to sit at the bar which was really nice. The bartender was very friendly and engaged us in conversation. He recommended a beer for us to have with our mussels. The brew and lunch was delicious.

We were impressed with each beer we tried - they were all great and we tried a few different styles. Also, the quality of the food was much better than most brew pubs we’ve gone to. Would definitely recommend checking them out!

The Brewery, was the lure. But, the Food reeled us in. This was my Forth visit of the year, but first time inside. The inside dining was well spaced, I saw the staff do a wipe down of table and seats, between diners. The menu has several dishes with a spicy Portuguese flair, and continues thru steak tips to burgers.

The food was average and the ambiance was great. They have a great variety of beer! I do wish the server had more of a personality and was more eager to be serving us. Great restaurant but sometimes the service isn't the best.

Our server was incredible as was the food, beer and attention to covid-19 precautions. The ONLY downfall is the noise level due to the set up of the building.

We had Mozambique Mussells which were amazing. I had the crab rangoon pizza. I loved it and it even reheated the next day like I was eating it for the 1st time. We will absolutely be going back.

We had the Nachos with pulled pork as an appetizer, which was good and loaded with pulled pork and drizzled with BBQ sauce. we had the Butternut Flatbread and the Shrimp Mozambique. Both were very good with the exception of the rice in the Mozambique. Would have preferred a tenderer rice. Not dissatisfied as overall we enjoyed the meals and our waitress Amber was soo nice and attentative. We've been to the MDBC before and will certainly return. Enjoy!

We sat at the bar and were protected by plexiglas, but still felt like we could easily talk to the bartender. The food was good as always. Don’t know what was up with the bartender as she wasn’t as friendly or talkative as the male bartender we had the previous week.

My 3 rd time at Moby Dick, the food was excellent, the service spot on. The street noise while outside dining can be distracting, but it soon fades away. I brought 2 friends who were impressed enough they play to go back with significant others.
