Trust Bennett's for Fish

This may be my wife's favorite restaurant in Ocean Shores. We can't go there without at least one stop at Bennett's. Regardless of what you order from their menu (and the Fish Tacos are the BEST), you will not walk away dissatisfied - in any way. If you're dressed for the beach, hungry, and are... read more

The food here is great. Nice family setting, but also a cool small bar. Bar tender was awesome. Drinks were good and food was amazing, even the burger, which was unexpected at a fish shack. I've eaten at several places in Ocean Shores, this place is now my favorite.

We had the halibut and chips and an order of chicken tenders. Both were awesome and prepared very quickly. The wait staff were courteous, the establishment was very clean, and the atmosphere was fun. Nothing fancy but great food and lots of it.

I wanted to try everything! Chowder was the best yet that we found! Fish taco and fish & chips outrageously good! Fries are even different and excellent!

It was very noisy and we had never been here before so we thought we would try it. It was okay for a place where you ordered and they brought your food to you. Probably difficult, if they are busy, for older people to have to stand & wait in line to place their order. It was a fun experience... More

Best fish and chips ever, chowder was great too! Do the beer battered cod, way better then halibut! I ate both! A little pricey but worth it! Order kids size the fish piece is huge then order a chowder, makes more than enough!

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... 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
