Busy!

The good reviews on Tripadvisor and other websites led us to this place. This is casual family dining - you place your order at the counter and pay, then find a seat and your meal is delivered to you. We visited on a Sunday night and it was very busy (summertime) but we found a table without a... read more

This place came highly recommended by a local, who must have gotten better treatment for being one. We stood in line 15 minutes to order. The total for 2 average-sized meals was $35 before drinks. We waited 40 minutes, got no food, then stood in line another 10 to see where our food was. I then spotted a waitress wandering... More

Slowest service I have ever had. You. Wait in line to order (which is fine) but then they take over an hour to bring it The starchy calm chowder didn't even have a bit of clam in it. Indignant service. Yuck

Went with my family & LOVED IT! We didn't have to wait too long, and the food was amazing. I had clams & cod. The clams were as big as my pinky finger and as tender as your mama's heart. Fish filets were huge & super tasty. Service was great and friendly. Rest of the family loved their meals as... More

It's a wonder that any other fish restaurant exists in Ocean Shores cause Bennett's has set a standard that is far beyond anything offered elsewhere. Their attention to quality is really exceptional, as well as the prices. Great family, or solo place to dine. Also, see Gary in the bar, he makes the best drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. The man... More

Our family of 5 enjoyed the food here. From burgers to chowder in a sourdough bowl...it was good food. A bit spendy ($74 for the 5 of us) but the food was worth it. The atmosphere was good too and this was one of the newer up-to-date restaurants in Ocean Shores. All too often these smaller towns depend on seasonal... More

Probably the best place in ocean shores to eat for the price and taste. Been going to this location for the past 2 years and have not been disappointed with several different selections . Great selection of beers, friendly staff and atmosphere. Well worth the stop on an empty stomach given the portion size.

Great lunch. We had halibut and chips and the halibut and chips combo (includes clam strips) and 2 drinks...it was $50. They have burgers and veggie options also! We sat outside on their deck and it was beautiful and peaceful.

Great crab sandwich and very competent bartendar. Busy place but the line to order goes fast. Sit in the bar and you can order from your table.

Very casual setting. Nothing fancy but very comfortable setting. The fish was great - not crazy about the clam strips. The service was fast and friendly. There also was a small bar if you are feeling thirsty. I don't eat French fries and you can sub out for cole slaw or salad at a minimal charge.
