Fish market and restaurant combined. The halibut fish and chips are good but I recommend skipping the crab cakes. The back door of the restaurant opens up to the waterfront where the Saturday Farmers Market is held.

We had been told this would be a good place for fish and chips, but it smelled so bad we did not stay.

Usually a busy spot is a great indicator that the food will be good right? Not so with this place unfortunately. We placed our order at the counter and then had to clear the dirty dishes off a table to sit down, where's the staff to do this? The food took a while to arrive but I don't mind waiting... More

I'm not much for seafood but decided on the Fish N Chips. I fell in love with seafood at this little restaurant. Seriously amazing! Crab cakes weren't as amazing as they claim but do not pass up the fish here!

We were in seafood heaven at OleBob's and got to sit out on the deck overlooking the Ilwaco marina. My husband's cod & chips were outstanding. They were so flaky they were clearly fresh fish. I got fish tacos, real lemondade, and clam chowder, three of my favorite things and they were all great. The salsa was too spicy for... More

For fresh fish off the boat this place can not be beat. I have purchased fresh crab in the past and have been very satisfied with the product. I had halibut lightly breaded that was light and crunchy. It was not fancy but on the dock and very enjoyable.

My wife and I went here, because it was recommended by a few locals. Everyone said that the crab cakes were the best. That's what I ordered, and they were amazing! If you eat here, and like crab cakes, I would definitely recommend getting them. The view of the docks, with all of the fishing boats is cool too. It... More

We had been visiting Cape Disappointment state park, and drove into Ilwaco for lunch. We just happened to find Olebobs down by the fishing docks. Although it doesn't look like much from the street side, it was a great find! It was right on the water with a view of the boats and River. The food was very good, and... More

Depending which side your walking on it's either Ole Bob's Seafood Market or Ole Bob's Café, but they both mean fresh fish. I just had an order of Cod fish and chips and I'll be back. Fresh, flaky, tasty fish in a balanced crisp, if ordinary batter. Simple but right on. The place is right on the pier's board walk... More

We had lunch here on our coastal travels. I had the crab melt which must have had half a crab on it. It was delicious. Husband had a whole crab. He loved every bite!! We bought several cans of salmon, tuna and smoked fish to take home. The service was good and the people friendly.
