Delicious Seafood right on the dock!

Delicious seafood right on the dock! Judy was very friendly and showed us around the fish market. Then we ate in the restaurant. The oyster shooters were amazing!

Very basic place to eat on the harbor. We ordered at the counter and the food was served to us The food was very good, we would certainly go back if we were in Ilwaco again.

My siblings were here from out of town and we were looking for some lunch before heading to Cape Disappointment State Park. We stopped in nearby Ilwaco and happened into Ole Bob's. We were glad we did! My sister and I had the halibut sandwich and my brother chose the cod fish and chips. We all enjoyed our meals very... More

We had great fish and chips here. Large portions, lightly breaded fish, crispy hot fries, very tasty. We ate outside with a view of the harbor. You order at the counter, the server brings it to you.

Lunch today was a return for us. I wanted crab cakes, but crab season is over. The fish and chips was quite good with crispy fish and good fries, small Cole slaw. Take your lunch outside and enjoy the phenomenal view of boats.

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.

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 appetizers. We will be back, to be sure!
