“A great candidate for Restaurant Impossible”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I can see how this place may have once been great. The decor looks like circa 1988 or so, some of the staff seems like they've been there that long as well. We had a really weird old lady as a waitress that mumbled to us, and talked to herself everytime she left the table.
The food was bland, if not bad. I suspect it was all frozen, heated up, and served with no seasoning.

With this location in a tourist town on the coast, this place could do really well, if they changed virtually everything.

“Seafood Extrordinaire”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Alec's is located next to the IGA store, has plenty of convenient parking and really good seafood.. This is a nice place to "dine" at your leisure and enjoy the bounty of the Northwest seafood selections, served fresh from the boat. One of the nicer "dining" establishments in Ocean Shores..

Reviewed November 9, 2012

Nice place. Good food. Not fancy or intimidating. The dinner specials are a very good value. We'll go again.
