Read reviews on trip advisor so gave it a try. 3 average size cups to go of chowder, one order of battered shrimp,maybe six or seven? Ordered to go, took about 20 minutes, only four customers in the place. Chowder was on the salty side, shrimp a little greasy. I was disappointed after reading... read more

I'm from the east coast, small town. I've come to accept that seafood is just different on each coast (for rather obvious reasons). But this place? This is close to my home comfort food. This is how you do small town seafood. It's not fancy. It's fresh and battered and fried. I had fish and chips when I first visited... More

Noisy and like a fast food place but with very expensive prices. Fish and chips small portions for the price. Not impressed with the quality of the food or the greasiness! Not impressed at all! Better Seafood in Seattle and prices not that high for a crummy self serve place! Out of product ....such as fried clams!

Only eat here! It rocks! No need to go ANYWHERE ELSE!!! I love the cod, strawberry shortcake, ceasar with large cup of baby shrimp, it's to die for! The strawberry shortcake is real buttermilk biscuits with ice cream, whipped crime, and fresh strawberry layers and all the food on the menu rocks!

Ponytail guy who works here: if you're reading this, you should be FIRED from that place for serving the food you served. I mentioned the unsatisfactory food to you, the self-proclaimed "head chef" in a nice way, even, and you straight-up accused me of LYING. Well, if you won't listen to your customers, then I'll warn them here. The caesar... More

Tried it based on TripAdvisor score; not disappointed. You order at the counter off a menu on a wall chalkboard so if you don't know the menu well, others who do might step to the front to speed things along. We each had a cup of chowder, cod & chips with clam strips, and an Iron Horse beer. (The beer... More

The combo meals my husband and I had at Bennett's were delicious and ample servings. The only down side was it's a little pricey.

We ordered right away without waiting but that was just the beginning. 30 minutes later we were still waiting. I was not happy. This is fast food ... you have a deep fryer why does it take 30 min to get our food?

The Best of the Best is the Best meal on the menu. It's a little pricey and a lot of food and it's worth it.

Big burgers and big portions of seafood baskets, the price is a little high but seems fair for their portions. The wait to get your food is pretty long. We placed a to-go order which my husband felt like it put us at the end of the line, we were there for probably half an hour from placing our order... More
