While the food was adequate...the service was terrible. While the waitress not only screwed up our order...we watched while she screwed up 3 others in the short time we were there....would never go back, and would never recommend!

Staff makes up for the so-so food, although it may be just what Ma and Pa wanted - the revenge of the Captain's Plate. Most everything is battered and fried. Nothing seems local, but there is a nice collection of on-tap beers, cider (1) and...More

Stopped in for a quick bite and stayed for the conversation. The fish and chips are really good, and you can add a few grilled oysters to the order for a few extra bucks. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.

There were four in our group. Three of us ordered the cod fish and chips which was delicious. My husband had "the best fish taco he's ever eaten". The staff was friendly. Service was prompt.

Came to this place with the family on a weekend getaway. It was highly rated so thought we’d give it a shot for dinner. Can’t believe this is the best place in town....unless it’s the only place in town. Honestly can’t believe it’s operable. Any...More

We ate at the bar in this charming spot. Boyfriend had a prime rib dip and I had the best crab melt of my life, crisp French fries and a delicious Bloody Mary. Best food we had on our weekend getaway.

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.
