One shouldn't expect a fish place where the food comes in a basket and you order at the counter to be gourmet, and certainly OleBob's isn't. (It's "Ole" Bob's not Ol' Bob's; I asked.)

On the other hand our order of cod and chips was very good. The fries were perfect, the fish was not the slightest bit greasy, the coleslaw was excellent, and a glass Mt Baker "Oyster Blanc" was terrific value at $5. That's a combination one doesn't find just anywhere. The coating of the fish had a bit too much corn meal or something, or I'd have rated this place excellent. My wife and I split an order for lunch and it was exactly what we wanted.

I noted they are open until 4 weekdays this time of year being the off season. Maybe in summer the hours are different.

This was something like I would have expected from a fast food restaurant. A real disappointment. When eating right next to the docks I thought the fresh halibut would have flavor...it was totally over battered and bland and the clam chowder was very thin, mostly potato and again no flavor. I would not recommend this location to anyone I know.

We had steamer clams and a dungeness crab and it was excellent! While on a mini-vacation to the Long Beach peninsula, we tried and tried to find a seafood restaurant and OleBob's seems to be the only place around that serves seafood - I'm glad we dropped in. Most of the menu appears to be fried fish, but the clams and the crab are steamed and perfect. The coleslaw is delicious, and the server was friendly and down-to-earth. Add a nice cold beer and it's a great meal. We'd definitely recommend this place.
