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

Crab cake’s were excellent. The host greeted me with a smile, the bartender was personable and professional. The manager even checked in with a quality check. Very impressed. Excellent menu and even the ambiance was great. I will definitely be back.

Best Fish and Chips on the Harbor, Large portions of fish and excellent clam chowder. If you share a two piece Cod and chips and a bowl of Chowder you won't need to order two. They also have a Fish and Chip bar in Westport.

Our group enjoyed the fish taco, chicken taco, southwest burger and kids fish and chips. The tacos were huge! My mom loved their spin on a southwest burger. And the fish and chips were a huge hit with our girls. Well definitely eat there again!

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.
