Food was very good. Would have gladly given them 5 stars, but they just couldn't seem to get our order right. They eventually did, and it was great. The waitress showed me what she wrote down and it was correct. Gotta blame the kitchen staff for this. Took quite a while to eat. Had to ask for one our salads,... More

Outstanding food and service. The beef was generous portions, aged angus. The desserts, made by Momma Sue, are a delicious finish to the experience!

Hoof and Claw is the best. Outside covered or open seating is hard to find anywhere else. Vegetables are limited in selection but main dish and desert selections are good.

I was with a VERY large group of people. The restaurant has, within the past year, enclosed what was formerly an outdoor patio, so that was very comfortable. One thing I especially liked -- given how large the group was -- was that our waiter brought the check right after serving our food; this was not to rush us by... More

So often, I had over to Benjamins, for that's where I know that my pallet will be more than satisfied with another of what I call my dream lunches. They conjure up the most incredible homemade soups that one could wish for, and one can chase it with a mouthwatering salad of choice or a smashing good sandwich. Whatever, one... More

My wife and I had dinner here. We ordered the special which was a pork combo. The ribs were burnt. The chop and pulled pork was salty and dry. Wouldn't recommend that selection for sure. Service was good, but the food wasn't good at all!!

Benjamin's casual and comfortable atmosphere was just what I needed after a long day at work. The service was outstanding and we had one of the best meals ever in this area! I highly recommend!
