the cod was good but the rest wasn't my favorite (chewy clams, so-so fries and tartar sauce). the restaurant was on the cold side (admittedly the temperature outside was near freezing). i prefer the mo's (Astoria) style of chowder.

Friendly staff with the best Crab Cakes I have had in a long time. Huge chunks of crab and great taste.

Good food for this type of restaurant. Customer friendly. Owner walked the floor and offered free clams. Seating can be difficult to find as it is busy and you seat yourself. We needed enough space for 5.

This is definitely not a fine dining experience - more of a bar\café with excellent seafood. So if you're expecting a lobster bisque or finely sliced gravadlax, then this isn't the place to go. But if what you want is excellent fish and chips and...More

We had the halibut and clams and a large clam chowder to share- the crowded was delicious. The halibut was about a quarter inch thick, severely overcooked and hard as a rock an inch around the edges. The clams were rubbery and gross- I’ve been...More

Every time in Ocean Shores we stop in for fish, clams, and fries at Bennett’s. We stopped in Friday 2/9/18 for a late lunch/early dinner. Got the battered cod, clams, and fries (and a Bloody Mary). The food was excellent. The people are nice. The...More

I agree - I doubt they take reservations. It's a quaint place with good food; not fancy.

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.
