As we wrapped up a two week west coast road trip, we decided to stay in Ocean Shores. That left a dinner hole for us to fill. Enter Bennett's Fish Shack. Full of folks. Quiet. We said yes to the bar (and to the delightful...More

Had a fun atmosphere and the food was good! The outdoor seating is a great option with the kids. I had the cod and clam strips combo, and it was a nice large portion. We'll be back again!

Daughter and I went for dinner last night. Really quick service! Great food. She had the prawns and I did Halibut. We shared and there was still some left. Definitely busy in the summer so try and get there early.

Had dinner with wife and two teens. Everyone walked away full. A little pricey but much like other restaurants in Ocean Shores. Wife had chowder and salad, I had prawns and kids had burgers. All were very good. I had to go ask for silverware...More

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

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.

We have a vacation home in Ocean Shores and eat dinners in restaurants. Our two tries at Bennett were disappointing. Loud and chaotic. Lots of children running around and music blasting from the bar. Not a place to have a conversation. Service was minimal as...More

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.

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.
