Rated 5 out of 5 by from We enjoy our meals at Moby Dicks every time we go. The seafood options are numerous and always delicious in simple and good preparations. Not fancy or gourmet but delicious. Clams and crab steamed and served in a garlicky broth were delicious. Fried calamari was plentiful, crispy and cooked perfectly with cocktail sauce and a fantastic tartar sauce for dipping.Our waiter Ian was friendly and efficient and checked on our many requests for substations graciously. The kitchen allowed all our requests, making us very happy.The decor is a little dated....interior designed to make you feel as if you are on a wooden hulled ship. It’s clean, but could use a redesign for a cleaner feel. We can overlook it, however, for the wonderful view of Santa Barbara harbor, watching boats, kayakers and SUP boarders travel past the pier the restaurant is sitting on.I love that they graciously accept the certificate without any hint of complaint or snootiness! We will keep coming back, coupon or no.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food was good but we were disappointed that we were unable to order any of the specials on the menu. Specifically, the dungenous crab.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The restaurant was right around 80 degrees until right before we left when the manager finally turned the air on. Myself and my daughters all agreed that the fish was dry
