As many times we have been here, this time was a little disappointing. As we walked in the door the odor was strong of bad fish. We have never smelled fish here before. The bartender said it was because they were cutting the fresh fish...More

The food is very good, but it's crowded and noisy. Service could be better. Had to order at a desk from menu on the wall and food brought to table.

Sensing a theme? Slow service seems to be contagious in Ocean Shores! Once again, the food was great, but the lack of good service earns them an average that could easily have been a very good rating. Our fish & chips, chicken tenders and clam...More

No, two different restaurants. Joe's Crab Shack is a chain with locations throughout the US, Bennett's has only three locations in Washington state.
