Popular and consistenly good food

This was my 3rd visit to Bennett's in the past three years. Even on a dreary, rainy late Saturday afternoon it was busy, a testament to the quality of the food and the good service provided. My wife had the Cod and Chips and I had the Clam Strips and Chips. The food was served quickly and it was... read more

This was my first trip to Ocean Shores. We were on a girl’s trip and needed a place to eat. The front desk clerk at the Best Western recommended Bennett’s Fish Shack. Nice place, relaxed. We decided to sit in the bar section and we're glad we did! Our bartender had a great personality and super entertaining. He provided amazing... More

We're fortunate to have a Bennett's in our home town of Ocean Shores, but had never had occasion to stop at their Westport location until last month. We took a group of friends there after spending a chilly morning on the beach and all were hungry and cold. We ordered everything from salads, fish and chips and chowder to big... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Monday and the free fry refills weren't needed at all. The portions of fish were large enough to satisfy and share without needing more fries. The fish was fried, but the batter on each piece was light and flavorful. My only wish was that they offered a sweet chili sauce alongside the staples... More

Deep frying is the way they do things here. The food is good, but the deep frying leaves a greasy feel to everything. My husband likes their clam chowder and their hamburgers are very good.

It was burger night at the Fish Shack and their burgers didn't disappoint! Served up with a Manny's Ale and bottom-less fries on a Monday night. Was quiet in there, not many other tables being served, but cheeful wait-staff none-the-less.

This is a popular stop for locals and tourists. The food is always filling and usually too much for one person. If you can eat your fill, you might try stopping on a Monday when they offer free refills on fries. A great stop for Fish, I hear as I am not a fish eater, but their burgers are honestly... More

Visited during Thanksgiving weekend with friends on a road trip. Clam chowder was best we had on this eight day trip of Seattle and Olympic Peninsula. Counter staff went out of his way to accommodate us and ensure our satisfaction. Atmosphere was delightful and made you want to come back. Good location for parking availability and easy walk to spectacular... More

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.
