We were driving back roads, exploring Washington, and although we hadn't planned on having lunch, we decided to stop and have some fish and chips when we drove by OleBob's Seafood Market. The service was friendly and the food was fantastic! It really was the best fish and chips we have had. The fish was tender and tasty with just... More

My cousin and I ate here twice, as the first experience was very good clam chowder and most excellent fish tacos. The fish portion in the tacos(soft corn tortillas) were very generious and the pico de gallo was fresh. The second time I had the fish and chips, and again the portion of fish was very generous. Really like the... More

I'm a snob about chowders. My mom made a true New England Clam Chowder and this is the closest thing to her chowder yet. Lovely flavors, you can taste the clam but it's not overpowering and the creaminess was spot on. It's a casual spot but a glass of white wine and their chowder and you're all set. The harbor... More

Hoping to get a good local meal outside of Clatsop County we ventured across the Astoria Megler bridge today. Our destination, the Ilwaco mooring basin and their quaint little outdoor craft bizarre. When it was time for lunch we choose Ole Bobs. What found was high prices and long lines. Typically a sign of good thing, high prices for great... More

The town of Ilwaco seems to have taken an opposite direction from nearby Long Beach in terms of development. As the gateway to the stellar nearby Cape Disappointment State Park, it was indeed disappointing to see how rundown the town has become. That being said, OleBob's was a decent restaurant option, with a location on the waterfront marina. We stopped... More

Drove down from Portland, about 2.5 hours. arrived around 2PM. Steamer clams and chowder were delicious. This is a very ordinary looking place and the people who work there work hard and are very nice. The service can be spotty. You order at the register and they bring out the food. It can take a while. If the weather is... More

I had fish and chips and my wife had fish tacos. The fries were gross; limp, greasy, transparent, and sitting in a pool of oil at the bottom of the paper-lined basket. The fish was very oily and bland and a thicker piece was not completely cooked. My wife had fish tacos and said they were very good. Sat outside... More

On a recent trip to Long Beach, Ole Bob's was recommended to us by the manager of the inn where we were staying. And we are so glad because we would never have found it just passing through town. The decor is not fancy, but the restaurant is clean, the waitstaff extremely friendly and the food was amazing. We had... More
