Enjoy home cooked meals by Captain Ralph and Mate Monika Oswald, plus all of their deckhands, at this friendly, family-run eatery. For a classic experience, try Moby’s premium fresh Alaskan cod fried in the signature tasty, light batter. Dip your fish and hand-cut fries in Moby’s creamy tartar sauce. It’s all made from secret family recipes that have been around well before the restaurant opened in 1975! There are plenty of other delicious choices, too: seafood platters, big burgers, chicken breast entrees, salads and more. You’re sure to have a whale of a meal!
Step into Moby Dick and you’ll feel as though you’ve gone under the sea. Whale memorabilia and suspended fishnets give the joint a nautical feel. A heated outdoor patio allows you to breath in the salty ocean air, adding to the experience. The patio is licensed and an ice-cold beer is a refreshing accompaniment to fish and chips. If you choose to eat by the ocean, your food will be packed up so you can cross Marine Drive and enjoy the view.
You Know It’s Good When…
A local favourite, the restaurant is a multiple People’s Choice Award winner for the best fish and chips. Moby Dick Restaurant was also recognized as one of the top local favorites in Canada in Travelocity’s “Local Secrets, Big Finds” 2005 poll. No small feat, Moby was chosen from more than 30,000 entries and won the top spot in B.C.! Being on top also includes the role of being a socially conscious seaman. A true community member, Moby Dick gives back to White Rockers in big ways. So when you’re enjoying your fish, you are also helping the community. From the hospital to the baseball diamond, a wide range of community members benefit from the generosity of the restaurateurs.
