Best place to buy seafood

The seafood sold in their market is the freshest you'll find and the crab cakes are the best I've ever had.A lot of restaurants give you a bunch of filler with a little crab but these have lots of crab in them.

While making a purchase at a nautical dealer in Long Beach the owner told us we needed to eat lunch at Olebobs in ilawako. Just a little marina front place but the best fish and chips on our trip. We placed our order for fish and chips and fish tacos. They were delivered to our small table by the street... More

Nothing fancy but Seafood at it's very freshest! We started with oyster shooters and then I had cod fish and chips which although not cooked in the batter I enjoy, the fish was very fresh.. My spouse really enjoyed the baked oysters on the half shell. The view of the harbor is interesting. Bottled beer as well as soft drinks... More

Just a few miles from the crowds of Long Beach the wharf of Ilwaco awaits with this perfect little seafood shop. Eat inside or out, a simple "order here" and wait for the food to be brought to your table makes service fast. The menu is small, based on the available fresh seafood. We started with oyster shooter....great oysters. Then... More

The cafe is clean and organized well. The prices a bit high for the portions. The meal of Halibut fish and chips was great. Good selection of soft drinks and beer. I definitely would go here again. Really fresh seafood right at the port.

The food took one hour to arrive after ordering. My captains platter was cold. The scallops were charred. Fries were cold for all three meals. The highlight was the steamer clams my daughter ordered. They were evidently well cooked. I will not eat there again.

We came on a Thursday afternoon luckily they were still open because I had the best (halibut) Fish Tacos with homemade salsa and chips, I've ever had! Soo good, yumm! My husband had steamer clams from local Willapa Bay! He enjoyed every single one and there were plenty of them at least 40 yummy morsels! A fresh seafood market and... More

A little no-nonsense seafood market & restaurant serves great food at reasonable prices. We stopped for shrimp cocktail, and were surprised at the generous size & low price. We purchased TWO cocktail's for $5.00 & change (total!). They were fresh and tasty. We're heading back to the beach & will make OleBob's a regular stop. They are closed Tuesday's &... More

The Halibut is really good and fresh. The fries are good too, but could have cooked a little longer. The Clam Chowder is really good. I'd place it only behind 42nd St cafe and Castaways. .

Locals sent us to OleBob's. It wasn't so great for us because we don't like deep fried foods. BUT, it was the only place we found that used fresh (not frozen) seafood. They sell the seafood there. The location at the harbor is fun. The people were nice. Be sure and check their hours if you go during the winter... More
