Bennett's was very busy on a summer Tuesday at the lunch hour. Virtually all the tables were taken. Orders taken and payments made at the counter. I had the Southwest burger which was good sized and very tasty. The waitress had to be reminded to...More

For those of you who travel with your pup, you'll appreciate Bennett's Fish Shack in Ocean Shores. Dogs are welcome on the patio. And they have a couple of heater towers out there for chilly weather. Nice. The food is good, too! We ordered fish...More

We've been here before and remember it being better than this visit. Really spendy for what you get, although the fish is good quality. They seemed short-staffed or else the staff was just lazy. Cashier not very helpful. Atmosphere would've been OK except there were...More

Stopped for lunch on trip to ocean shores. Service was great. We sat at the bar and tried a couple of the local beers/cider on tap. Had fish tacos- more like burrito. Very big with fresh ingredients and good fish. Good prices for portions.

Bennett's Fish Shack has really great food, but really slow service. When busy be sure to order at least 20 mins before you want to eat. Dogs are aloud in the outdoor seating area and great spot to people watch.

This place has great food but the prices are high. This is the type of place where you order first and then sit down. Drinks were good. I would rec this place

Service was good and order came quickly. This is a popular spot. Clams and Fish and Chips were just right. Probably some of the best fish & Chips we have had. Recommend as prices and quality are good value

On a summer Sunday evening, we got lucky and managed to get seating for our party of seven adults and four kids. It took a while to order food and a while too get it to our table, but it was definitely worth the wait....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.
