“Happened on a very nice family restaurant on the fishing docks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had been visiting Cape Disappointment state park, and drove into Ilwaco for lunch. We just happened to find Olebobs down by the fishing docks. Although it doesn't look like much from the street side, it was a great find! It was right on the water with a view of the boats and River. The food was very good, and it was family oriented. The service was also great, in spite of a lot of people coming in at the same time. We would highly recommend it to area visitors!

“You know the Seafood's fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Depending which side your walking on it's either Ole Bob's Seafood Market or Ole Bob's Café, but they both mean fresh fish. I just had an order of Cod fish and chips and I'll be back. Fresh, flaky, tasty fish in a balanced crisp, if ordinary batter. Simple but right on. The place is right on the pier's board walk and is plain and simple as IIlwaco, no more, no less; what do you want?
PS check about their Fall/ Winter hours - pretty much the same for all of IIwaco.

“Great Crab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We had lunch here on our coastal travels. I had the crab melt which must have had half a crab on it. It was delicious. Husband had a whole crab. He loved every bite!! We bought several cans of salmon, tuna and smoked fish to take home. The service was good and the people friendly.

“tasty crab cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

The crab cakes have a very yummy sauce, and the restaurant has a great view of the Port of Ilwaco. I also really like the little take out calamari salad available in the seafood market.

“Fresh Local Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Seafood Market (streetside) and Cafe on the Waterfront/ Portside. Great fish tacos and halibut fish and chips. Also love the crab cakes and special sauce. My son loves the grilled tuna sandwhich. Fresh cooked crab too!
