Bennets Fish Shack is located in the busiest part of town on the way to the beach access. It has a good selection on the menu of various fishy fare. The indoor and outdoor dining areas are roomy. The place is clean overall and they have a good selection of beer from the lounge. The fish is hand dipped and... More

When I travel to the Oregon Coast, I want clam chowder and fish. This place fit the bill with its fresh ingredients and fun low-key atmosphere. We loved it!

We arrived at the restaurant at around 3pm on a Saturday. This place came highly recommended according to Yelp. There is an order at the counter and we will bring it out to you kind of restaurant. There was one person in front of us so the line was very short. We placed an order and were able to find... More

The food here is great! I had the chowder in a bread bowl one day & came back the next for the fish taco (almost enough for 2 people, it comes with fries)! Both meals were excellent! Fun atmosphere & always busy.

We found this restaurant during our stay in Ocean Shores for a family reunion. We wanted something reasonably inexpensive that served seafood. The atmosphere is welcoming and casual, but it was clear the girl at the register taking orders was new and was unfamiliar with the menu. My main complaint was the lack of non-fried food options - or healthy... More

We were not expecting much and had judged the place by its exterior. WRONG, really good food and lots of it. My wife and I shared the Halibut and Clams and ordered a cup of Chowder. Outstanding, really. The breading was light and the fish was not at all greasy. The chowder was very rich and full of clams and... More

This place easily competes with the fried fish options available in a major city. Great fish and chips, fish tacos, etc. There are also lots of tables, nice outdoor seating (with heaters), and lots of beers. It's a casual restaurant, but absolutely one of the best in the area.

Very good food, price is a little high, but good food. The employees were friendly and the atmosphere was typical for a ocean side restaurant. Wife had the fish & chips (cod) she thought is was very good. I had the 1 1/2 Ib of clams, it was also good, could have used a little more butter, but for the... More

This was a highly recommended place, it was a little busy when we were there, but people were waiting over an hour for food. It was excellent fish and chips. The up side was it had the best lemon drop cocktails I have ever had! Pricey though! The staff was not exactly friendly.
