Slightly unusual set-up. Very basic and casual dining experience, a bit like being a student again. However, the food was amazing, the crab cakes particularly were, without doubt, the best I have ever tasted (absolutely crammed with succulent crab meat). I found the whole experience very much to my liking. Don't be put off by the appearance of this place, this is the Jewel of Westport

The menu here is MOSTLY fried food - not really healthy! The clam chowder was adequate but short on actual clams. Shared a Caesar salad with small shrimp which was OK at the time but it later made me really sick. With the menu being SO limited, I am hard-pressed to recommend this eatery for anyone EXCEPT someone with a strong gall-bladder!!

Had the halibut and clam strips for$22, the burgers looked huge and the salads looked good too. Pretty busy place, bring a jacket because you may have to sit outside.

HOWEVER...
Best clam strips that me and my wife have EVER had,They were about as fat as my thumb. Gigantic servings, Cod seafood combo was a great deal.

Very Recommended

My husband I went to Bennett's for fish and chips after checking into our room.
The food was really good! At first I was concerned when I saw the fish because the breading looked a little darker than I expected, but it was cooked to
perfection! There was an abundant amount of fries and the tartar sauce complimented the fish just right.
I would go back there without a doubt on our next trip to Westport.
Service was great, and we had the option to eat outdoors if we wanted.
