Food delivery slow, but yummy

Order at the counter and they bring it to you. We wish would could have sat in the bar since the bartender was great and attentive, but there was no room so we had to go to the bar to get our own drinks. Nice local beer selection on draft. that was the quickest part of our visit. The food... read more

We were here during the Clam Festival so the place was pretty crowded. The atmosphere was great and we all loved our food. I had the Cod Fish and Chips and they were cooked very well. The breading was cooked nice and crunchy and the fish was tender and flaky without ending up being to mushy. The wait staff is... More

Extremely good fish and shellfish. Thought it was a bit expensive, but it was all part of the holiday.

Went here for dinner and sat in the bar, the waiter Brad makes you feel like an inconvenience and constantly seems upset about something. The food was pretty good, would not recommend the chowder or caesar salad but the clam strips and crab cakes were good. The wine was overpriced for being Trader Joes "Two Buck Chuck". Probably would not... More

This place relies a little too much on its location rather than service, pricing and quality. I attend annual event at convention center across the street, so I hit Bennett's sometimes because its convenient. Food is way overpriced, almost everything is fried, and staff are definitely not attentive. You are definitely on your own at this place.

We love to eat and we love to try new restaurants. We ordered the beer battered cod, clam chowder, crab cakes, a crab melt and the applewood bacon cheeseburger. Every piece of the dinner was outstanding. The crab melt was delectable, perfectly melted cheese and a generous serving of crab meat to par YUM! The cheeseburger was extremely juicy and... More

WOW. Never saw this coming but WHAT a hamburger. Fresh Piled High. The hamburger was seasoned to perfection. I'm still shocked how good it is from a fish house. Everything made fresh and fish hand breaded. It's not fast food now. It's great food served as fast as they can make it. The service is great too

Very good burgers and Fish and Chips, They have outdoor seating if you bring your dog. Arrive early because this place can get packed.

We tried to come here twice while we were at the beach last month. We've been here before and loved the food, but both times we considered going here they were overwhelmed by the amount of business they had. Someone did not adequately prepare for the busy weekend and thus customers (like the ones below) were stuck waiting an unreasonable... More

The food was good, however the place seems to be built around the premise of "rich tourists from the city deposit your money here..." But, I asked the hotel for a good seafood restaurant, not where the locals eat seafood. If you are coming from Seattle and want your always available booster seat, clean countertop, TV-in-the-bar type safe & standard... More
