Walked in the door and the bad fish smell should have made us turn away. After sitting at a booth for almost 10 minutes we were told that we have to order at the counter. Placed out order "fish & chips with a house salad" and a Halibut combo with clam strips and a cup of clam chowder." $50+ for... More

The Fish Shack was recommended to us by two different locals on two different occasions. Being native Washingtonians, we are no strangers to GOOD seafood. I had the two Crab Cakes at $15 so the price was about right. What was not right was the cakes were nearly 90% Crab! And I don't mean just flaky Crab but huge lump... More

Meh... Fish was super greasy, clam chowder was barely warm, and the clam strips were chewy. Save your money and go somewhere else.

It was delicious, my cod and chips had a great batter and their cranberry apple cider they make in house is phenomenal. The gal that took our order was very helpful and even talked with us about clam digging. It is worth a visit!

The bartender was also the server and he was excellent The clams had a great buttery wine broth with carrots and onions and garlic with slices of sourdough to dip in. The clam chowder and coleslaw was so good we bought some the... More

no joke! Go on a Friday night and sit in the Bar and order the Prime Rib it is superb! If Aaron is the Bartender he is one of the best, most attentive bartenders around and when I say around I mean the entire state of Washington!

We did dinner at Bennett's and it is definitely a good choice if what you want is fried seafood. Chowder was excellent, halibut and chips was very good. Most choices are deep fried, so be prepared for that. Pricing is reasonable and the food is better than most fried food places.

We went here on recommendation of a friend. The food was very good, we both had fish and chips. Nice pieces of fish, good fries. The major problems were that it took 45 minutes for us to get our food and its a "find your own seat" kinda place, so it was bedlam trying to get a table. We might... More

Having tried a half dozen places here in Ocean Shores, I vote this the best fish & chips in town. Full, fat pieces of quality halibut or cod in perfect batter coating. It is a casual atmosphere where you order at the counter (unless you sit in the bar where it is full service) and seat yourself. The decor is... More
