The food here is great! I had the chowder in a bread bowl one day & came back the next for the fish taco (almost enough for 2 people, it comes with fries)! Both meals were excellent! Fun atmosphere & always busy.

“Limited menu, good food, few options that aren't fried”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant during our stay in Ocean Shores for a family reunion. We wanted something reasonably inexpensive that served seafood. The atmosphere is welcoming and casual, but it was clear the girl at the register taking orders was new and was unfamiliar with the menu. My main complaint was the lack of non-fried food options - or healthy options all together. Offering some things grilled/blackened would have been more desirable. The food took quite a while to arrive to our table (20+ minutes) and it was evident it had been sitting as the fries weren't warm. All in all decent, but wouldn't go back.

“They know how to do fish and chowder.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We were not expecting much and had judged the place by its exterior. WRONG, really good food and lots of it. My wife and I shared the Halibut and Clams and ordered a cup of Chowder. Outstanding, really. The breading was light and the fish was not at all greasy. The chowder was very rich and full of clams and tasty. My son in law had a Cheeseburger, of all thing in a fish restaurant, and said it was one the best he had ever eaten. Everyone at the table loved their choices, chicken, salads, fish, and burgers.
Get there 5 minutes before traditional meal times and the lines are shorter. Either way, it's worth the wait.

ps, it was so good we drove 30 minutes to eat there the next day!

“Excellent fried fish”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This place easily competes with the fried fish options available in a major city. Great fish and chips, fish tacos, etc. There are also lots of tables, nice outdoor seating (with heaters), and lots of beers. It's a casual restaurant, but absolutely one of the best in the area.
