Super seafood, relaxed environment

Really nice seafood hotspot! I had fish tacos and Anita had a scrumptious shrimp salad. The food was fresh and healthy. The wait staff were friendly and attentive, and the view of the Marina is a real plus. Everyone at this small Ilwaco restaurant seemed happy and content with their entrees and... read more

In a seaport town like Ilwaco, you'd expect every seafood restaurant to have great fish. It is next to a fish processing plant, right on the water. The harbor is jammed with boats. How could you go wrong? Go to Bob's. Things that should be cold like coleslaw were cool, things meant to be hot like the fries were also... More

We decided to try OleBob's just because of the name. We both had the fish and chips. The fish was a local catch called "dover" that was actually thinner than the breading that was on the fish. I would not order it again nor would I rush back to Bob's for anything else.

Great food. Haddock fish & chips were excellent. Willapa Bay oyster shooters were very good. Nothing like eating where they sell fresh fish. Local fisherman, workmen & business people were eating here.

Fried seafood in a crunch. They were swamped but they did their best to seat and feed everyone. Nothing particular stood out but the choices were limited that day - few restaurants open.

We have eaten at Ole Bob's a couple of times. The food is wonderful and the service is friendly. There is outside seating which is greatly appreciated when you have a dog with you.

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

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.

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
