There were 4 of us. My dad had the burger, actually looked pretty good. My mom had the garden salad with salad shrimp and a cup of chowder. John ordered the fish after we placed our order. I had the favorites, a cup of chowder, half a crab salad sandwich, and a chicken cranberry cashew salad. My mom loved her... More

Bennett's Fish Shack is always on our list when we visit Ocean Shores. This time I had the fish sandwich and it exceed my expectations. The fish was crunchy, the lettuce was fresh and the tarter sauce was creamy. My husband had a calm strip/fish and chips combo. The calms were tender and not chewy. My old wish is that... More

Food was good, definitely pricey! Not much to pick from but seafood so not a good place if you don't eat it.

Bennett's is our go-to place after a day of fishing on the Pacific Ocean. Fabulous fish & chips and generous shrimp cocktails. Fast service, even when crowded.

I live in Ocean Shores and this place came in and was fantastic. Sadly the quality has gone down dramatically. The owner appears to want people to be happy with their food and experience here but I'm not sure he is really paying close attention the last year or so. The seafood comes from the kitchen way too dark. I... More

We had the halibut fish sandwich with fries and crab melt. Both dishes were greasy. The sandwich was thrown together - lots and lots of mayo and the fish was greasy. Disappointing visit.

I visited with my husband. We both ordered the Halibut and Chips. Nice, thin crust and excellent fish! French fries prepared nicely without being greasy! Our waiter was a rock star! So informative and helpful!

The food was great. We ordered a fried fish & clam strip meal, a special that included half a crab melt sandwich, clam chowder and a cranberry chicken salad, and chicken strips & fries for our kids. The fried fish was delicious, nice light batter & well fried. The clam strips was huge and meaty and I loved the tartar... More

Food is pricey but the place is packed frequently. It's more of a tourist place. Food was ok. Atmosphere is nice. Bar area has a couple TV's for the sports folks. Can make just about any drink you can think of. IF YOU ARE IN A HURRY FOR FOOD THIS ISN'T THE PLACE FOR YOU? I think we waited about... More
