Still run by family and the staff just makes you feel right at home. Thanks Michaela for the great service. The fish (& chips) were thick, meaty and still so flavorful. The dungeness crab caesar salad was fantastic

Excellent Seafood, spirits, wine and beer. Super friendly atmosphere with hometown hospitality. My favorite is the fish taco and a Manny's beer. If your over 21 recommend eating in the bar, which is full service.

We had lots of edible sand in our extremely high priced clams strips. The service was also slow. What a rip off.

This is the place for the best fish and chips at Ocean Shores! Fast service. Be prepared to wait for a table during peak times.

Great fish and chips. We always eat here when we go to the beach. The fries are home made and the fish is delicious.

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.
