This is a great local restaurant with amazing food and friendly service. The stromboli was served on a platter, enough to feed a hungry family of 4! The staff is fantastic, they remember you and engage in lively conversation. The owner came by the table...More

I’m highly disappointed by the Italian food in this town. Benito’s is pretty run of the mill for Jax. Over cooked pasta, yucky sauce, and pretty bad over all. The beer was very cold and the service was excellent.

My dish is alright, but since I am not picky when it comes to food, this may not be accurate presenting of the good/bad part about the food. After all, how can you screw up Spaghetti with meatballs and Sausage??? However, my friend was not...More

My family eats here at least once a month after church. They have excellent food in the buffet, good service and very affordable.

I eat dinner here quite a lot and always find the food to be tasty and fresh - they have quite an extensive menu too. It's fun to sit at the bar and have a glass of wine, an appetizer and just relax.
