The location is perfect and the building is cute. Service was pretty good but I feel the meals are a little over priced. Also, let me mention that the clam chowder is some of the worse I have had. It was just potato soup with...More

The fish is always good and crisp and flaky. Wait times can be long in the summer. Their order taking system is so slow. There is no a la carte option for an extra piece of fish, you must buy another combo plate with a...More

A tight fit, the place was jam packed and for good reason. Very generous portions of cod and chips. Definitely coming back to try the oysters.

Overnight stay in Westport and I asked the motel for a recommendation for dinner. Bennett's was one he had. I checked the reviews and all looked good. Nice location downtown. You order at the counter. I ordered the cod and clam strip dinner with clam...More

We went here simply because the town closed at five and we didn't realize it and they were just about the only place open. I got the fish and chips but asked if I could get chowder instead of fries and the waitress said yes,...More

Fun local eatery (order at counter and server brings order to your table) with fresh seafood. Try “The Best of the Best”: a small cranberry coast salad with sesame chicken and cashews, a cup of clam chowder, and a half Dungeness Crab melt.

Not good! I had the fried clams and they were so tough I couldn’t chew them. My husband had the fried oysters and they were just OK. We had driven into Westport especially to have seafood and it was very disappointing.

Great eats especially in a sleepy little town (in October). Had the Beer Battered Cod & Chips. Tasted my mom's Tender Clam Strips (fabulous and tender). Great atmosphere and clean. Will go back next time in town.

Nice road trip to Westport WA so we hit Bennett’s for a late lunch. Although they were busy service was efficient and friendly. Food was great. Ate out on the front patio on a beautiful Oct day. Would eat there again for sure!!

The food was good but nothing to get crazy about. Very standard clam chowder but home made. I do not know which home but they had a lot of celery. Oysters boring and cod was so so. Down the road had better food. I hope...More
