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.

The food is very good, but, I feel its over priced. We have eaten here several times over the years, usually per friends request.

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.
