We were traveling to Ocean Shores on a Sunday, and our condo was not going to be ready for us until 4 p.m. The problem was that the Seahawks were playing at 1 p.m. To prepare for this dilemma, I began calling around to several area restaurants to find a place where we could sit and watch the game until...

The variety of offerings was surprising - including the lower priced Senior Menu with slightly smaller portions of full menu items. Our large group all enjoyed different entrees and none were disappointed. I'd dined at the restaurant about 8 years back and was happy to see how well maintained the property is and current to food trends the menu was!... More

Had a late lunch/early dinner with family. Most of us had the halibut some with their homemade chips the rest fries. Food was great as was the service and at a price that was reasonable. They also have a senior menu. We will eat there again.

A clean environment that is family friendly. A small bar for watching the game also looked friendly and inviting. The menu was well rounded. I had the Salmon, red potatoes with steamed broccoli and absolutely enjoyed my meal. Great service.

We had a great seafood dinner at Alec's By the Sea recently. As we arrived on the earlier-side for dinner, we were seated immediately. The restaurant did fill up later in the evening and we noticed waiting customers as we left. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and offered suggestions. I had fried razor clams which were delicious. Others... More

My family has been coming to Ocean Shores for many years. We always dine at Alec's more than once during our visits. You must try the fried razor clams, delicious!

In the past when in Ocean Shores we have always dined at least once at Alec's By the Sea. I has been good and the price reasonable. This time, however, the food was not as good. It could have been that we were there at 4:45 in the afternoon. The pan fried oysters were chewy like bubble gum.

Great food at a good price. The servers were very friendly. Try their fish and chips. Don't forget the chowder. Great place to hang out especially if you are a Seahawks fan.

Easy to overlook this restaurant as its just off the main road and located in a big car park. But it is well worth a visit. The quality of the food was really good; the owner clearly aims to cook to a high standard and the restaurant provides an extensive menu with a variety of healthy options. Friendly staff too.

Thank howardcrabtree
