My husband and I ate there on 12-02-16 for lunch. The Crab Bisque was very nice, lots of crab. The Shrimp and grits were creamy and spiced perfectly. The New York Strip Au Poive was done exactly as my husband requested. Our server, Akm H was very attentive and friendly. I have eaten there before and will eat there again.... More

Food was overpriced and not that great. You can get better food at Red Lobster or Outback. The restaurant is starting to show its age. There is outdoor seating with a view, but nothing else special about this place. Just lower your expectations and you won't be disappointed.

I went to Benny's for dinner by myself and sat at the bar. After a few minutes, I ordered a salad with rare tuna. About 15 minutes later, I asked about the status of my order. The waitress told me it was not even in process because of a big party. Essentially, she was telling me I wasn't important. But,... More

Dennis was amazing and the food was pretty darn good as well even my very Picky 15 yr old ate almost everything on her plate. Service was very quick we went on a Sunday night. Very clean as well and we had a wonderful view.

In all fairness, we came as a group of 15 but we were willing to split up. They placed us at two separate tables. It took 15 minutes to get water. We ordered about 20+ minutes later. Staff was decent. Nothing special. The food was very good. I enjoy my steaks well done and it rare I get my steak... More

My wife and I looked at the posted menu and decided this was the place. Once inside we noticed the ambience absolutely did not reelect the prices. We decided to have a drink and take our time in deciding, giving the place a real good look over. The waiters were dressed slovenly which added to our disappointment in looking for... More

My biggest complaint with this place is that it's extremely expensive, but below-average food. My husband ordered a steak medium ($28), but his steak didn't have any pink on the inside. He didn't feel comfortable sending it back, and our waiter didn't ask if it was cooked correctly. I ordered the shrimp and grits, which was decent ($20). The rolls... More

My friend's steak was a bit fatty too. Vegetables and mashed potatoes and bread was great. Hubby had fish and it was very good. Not low priced. A little pricey, like Hotel pricing.
