Super friendly staff and excellent food. Not fancy but good. Great selection of fried food. Really nice - a bit grubby, but excellent food.

Bennett's is always a great place to go to when you're at the ocean. Fish and chips are wonderful and salads and other interesting seafood combinations are available. Of course, the bar is always fun!

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.
