We've been to their restaurant in Westport a few times and the Ocean Shores location did not disappoint. My wife's Dungeness Crab salad was excellent as was my Clam Strips and Chips. The portion size was excellent. We liked the atmosphere, although it is a bit loud, even with people just talking normally. Well worth a stop when in Ocean... More

Just happened to find Bennett's and I'm so glad we did. Delicious food, great beer and fantastic atmosphere. We sat in the bar, shared lunch and watched Green Bay beat Dallas on the bar's big screen television. I'd drive the three hours from Seattle just to eat here again!

We go to this little restaurant frequently when we are in town. Our favorite is the crab cocktail and the fish tacos. Very friendly, helpful bartenders. Nice folks.

Ocean Shores is not known for its restaurants, so finding decent food can be hard. We love Bennett's, just plain ol' good fish and chip. Not the best ever, but good for Ocean Shores

Stopped by to try the best fish & chips in town. What I ended up with is semi greasy fish and cold fries. Maybe it was an off day but I am in no hurry to return.

Let's start with the room temp clam chowder , then go on to the 17.00 silver dollar size crab cakes (2 of them!) Took about 1/2 an hour in a basically empty restaurant - Then another weird thing , no tarter sauce , just ketchup (catsup?) for the store bought French fries , crab cakes were no Dungeness either ,...

A fun relaxed atmosphere with very good food. A little difficult for how you need to order with everything on a chalkboard behind the counter when things are busy, but we managed. The service was wonderful and the halibut and chips was great. We really like the coating that is used and how it is fried. Very good! The bar... More

I would not recommend this restaurant. Staff is unprofessional, slow and bad food! Restrooms didn't even have soap, so you know the cooks couldn't wash their hand in the bathroom.

We did not find this place on the Iphone app but by driving around. Stopped for lunch and a brew then later for a snack. The service was excellent the folks where polite and friendly and visited but still provided service to all. We highly recommend this place.

Want to be honest, and it is worth 2.5 stars. Went with friends that came to the shore. Had the cod and chips as I just couldn't get myself to pay the $25 for the halibut when it's order at counter service. This time the cod was thick but extremely greasy. As in my last review, for the price $18... More
