Moby Dick’s Seafood Restaurant: Family-Friendly Coastal Dining Adventure in Port Aransas, Texas

In the salty sea air of Port Aransas, Texas, where the Gulf of Mexico whispers in the ears of the content, there exists the most amusing, family-friendly, all-inclusive, and genuine seafood restaurant on the Texas coast: Moby Dick’s Seafood Restaurant. At the center of the hustle and bustle of the often tourist-laden streets, Moby Dick’s is a sanctuary for anyone seeking a taste of the sea served with a side of southern charm. Stepping under the raised, massive great white shark and into the tiki style maritime restaurant, you’ll find a maze of coastal décor, a gift shop, rooms and rooms of games, nets, boats, poles, and sea life. The ambience is alive, and lively yet relaxed, with the sound of seagulls mingling with the laughter of diners.

            At the helm of this nautical adventure is Ed. Marooned on the local beaches at the age of 15, Ed was forced to camp on the beach, struggling simply to survive, sometimes resorting to roasting rattlesnakes on an open campfire for supper when the fish weren't biting, grew up to be locally renowned artist, and the creator and founding father of Moby Dick’s. With a menu that reads like a love letter to Ed’s earlier companion, the sea. Ed and his family invite diners to embark on this culinary voyage of epic proportions. A quest of flavor that spans the seven seas and beyond.

Begin your culinary odyssey with the Crab Stuffed Poppers, hand battered jalapenos with fresh crab meat. Each succulent bite is a testament to the purity of the ocean and the robustness of Texas fervor. For those craving a taste of the deep, Moby Dick’s offers an array of seafood pleasures, from A School of Fried Fish Fillets, Snow Crab Boil, and Hawaiian Style Chicken Breast. Indulge in a bowl of hearty Clam Chowder or sample one of the restaurants Buccaneer Burgers, towering creations that combine the best of land and sea in a single, glorious bite.

            No visit to Moby Dick’s is complete with trying one (or three) of their Island Specialty Cocktails, a Tipsy Dolphin maybe, w/ coconut rum, Tito’s vodka, lemonade, raspberry, sweet & sour, and cranberry. You’ll understand why Moby Dick’s Seafood Restaurant is more than just a restaurant, it’s truly an adventure, a quest for culinary greatness on the high seas of flavor.
