Will go back

We've ate here many times and always good. If you have family members that does not like fish they have very good chicken strips.

This place is right across the street where local fish are being landed but the choices were mostly standard breaded fried fish dishes of some sort. I was hoping for fresh local fish but it wasn't to be.

Great location but the fish taco was bland. The restaurant has a diner-style setup by ordering and paying at the counter and getting your own utensils and condiments. The hostess seemed less than thrilled to be there but maybe she was just tired.

After hearing how good the fish and chips were, my husband ordered it and was not disappointed. The halibut was crispy and not greasy at all. The French fries were also good; seasoned perfectly and not greasy. I had a ceasar salad with salmon on top. The salad was very good, and the large piece of salmon was tender and... More

We had to be very patient on the wait at this place as it is obviously very popular! BUT, the wait was worth it! Our group of 4 had different orders of fish and clam chowder and every single thing we had was great. You can't go wrong here.

My wife and I took a drive from Ocean Shores to see the small fishing village of Westport. While in Westport, we stopped at Bennett's Fish Shack for a late lunch. The ambience is casual. The table seating is very close. The menu selection is broad enough to fill most anyone's preferences. You must place your order at the counter.... More

This restaurant is convenient to the floats/wharves for day tripping. The clam chowder was excellent but most of the offerings on the menu are fried. The portions are HUGE!

We ordered fried halibut and chips. The fish was NOT a HALIBUT and looked and tasted like a substitute, non-halibut bottom fish. We recommend proper government authority to inspect seafood restaurants properly and more often.

This place is excellent, everything looked good going to the other tables. We will drive 1 1/2 hours each way for the yummy seafood. It is definitely a place worth visiting!

We had hoped to eat at the Bennett's down the road in Grayland, but when we discovered that restaurant had closed, we headed to their other store in Westport. No table service, and nothing fancy, but a very large menu of seafood choices. We all enjoyed pretty average fish-n-chips. The clam chowder was WAY above average though--very creamy, lots of...
