Best fish and chips in the area, always fresh and great seasonal foods. When in season you can get crab and razon clams. Excellent clam chowder too. Grab a beer and you're good to go.

I had the battered shrimp ( comes only with fries) and my wife had Caesars salad with bay shrimp. Plus we each had a cup of clam chowder which was only lukewarm when served. It was tasty, though. The meals and beer were all overpriced....More

All of our group loved the dinner. When their food arrived it was hot and just perfectly prepared. The clam chowder was not satisfactory. It had an unusual taste and we felt they might have used powered milk.

My family and I stopped here for dinner over Labor Day weekend. We knew it would be busy obviously so waiting was expected. We just didn't know that we'd be waiting an unreasonable amount of time. People who were in line behind us got there...More

The service was cordial, warm, attentive and professional . When asked what the most popular dishes were, a sincere answer was given, and it was accurate. When we almost left without the cushion we take along for my elderly mother, our waiter found us with...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.
