After some of the write-ups, this place disappointed us. The interior was cute. You order from a chalkboard menu at the front, find a table and the bring your food to you. The signature cod fish and chips were good, not great. The batter was...More

The beer battered fish and chips and North Coast Salad were to die for. The staff were very attentive and the restraint was very clean. We go there often.

My husband and I were driving around looking for another restaurant and ended up here. We were really happy to have ended up here. Ordered the cod and chips and the crabcakes. The cod was meaty, fresh, and not too greasy. Probably some of the...More

I especially liked the bar area, which was separate. I sat at the bar and ordered hand breaded fish & chips with a bowl of clam chowder and a beer. I was surprise to see the huge pieces of fish and big portion of fries....More

The prices are high - and what you get is fast food - the crab cakes were dry and cold. And then the service - they seemed disinterested at best. I suspect there is little oversight or management. Won't go again -

Crab cakes were excellent, fish and chips great, staff young yet attentive and a full bar with cocktails and several beers on tap to choose from. Other than Viet Hoa not much to eat in this town so welcome addition.

Stayed in Ocean Shores for a week and a half. Ate at Bennett's all but two times. Tried the cod and chips, breaded prawns, cheese burger, clam chowder and seafood fettuccine. Each one was fabulous! The cod and chips are by far the best I've...More

Yum. We were in town & needed to grab a quick bite. Not knowing anything about the place we were skeptical from the outside but the interior is up to date and very fun and beachy. The food was made with care and fresh ingredients....More

This salad is everything and more! Lots of chicken, cashews, dried cranberries, on a bed of romaine lettuce with a sesame raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. Feta cheese crumbled on top. A perfect meal! This is the hands down best salad in town! If you don't like...More

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.
