Great location right on the ocean. Seating indoors up or down, outside, and a large bar.

Not a huge menu but OK. Service was very good. Food was variable: crab cakes great; tuna taco so so, salmon below par.

Annoying music made conversation harder. The seating upstairs felt very tight.

$140 plus tip for 4 is too expensive. Overall experience a 3, and there are better choices in the area.

If you decide to go then it is advised to get a reservation to avoid a 60-90 minute wait.

This was fifth or six time eating here. The food usually takes along time (45 minutes- or longer) to come out of the kitchen. However it is usually delicious. And the view makes up for the wait Tip: If you should try Benny’s, do NOT order the breakfast items on the brunch menu. Two of four of us ordered breakfast/brunch items and they came out completely incorrect, even on a second attempt. They did give us credit for the one meal and one round of drinks. But I was sorely disappointed after bragging to my out of town friends that this was a good place to eat. The other lunch items ordered were satisfactory.

I guess you can’t beat them in the area when it comes to a beach restaurant! The atmosphere and service are unique! We came for a late breakfast and stayed out for lunch, so we saw them set up the outdoor grill and bar to prepare drinks by the sidewalk, it was an attraction itself!
Drinks and food are great (make sure you’re hungry or have someone to share ‘cause everything is sized to FILL!); service is super fast and they have a large team tending tables so you’re never left on your own. This is a place to come back!!!

Benny’s offered many food choices from Burgers to seafood at a reasonable price. We had the crab cakes, lobster salad, jerk chicken and brisket roll dinner. The food was great, service was good. Would recommend and return.

Benny's might not be the nicest of restaurants and its decor is certainly lacking but what its missing in looks it more than makes up in food. I've eaten here many and have had most items on the menu and they are great. Try the chicken and waffles and it just might be the best you've ever had. The tuna tostada is amazing as is the misnomered jerk chicken.
The cons:
The chairs are uncomfortable, parking is obnoxious and tables are close to one another.
However, when food is this good you take the negatives in stride.
I've think I've gone through most of the menu and like everything I've had.
This is a great and inexpensive place for a relaxing lunch.
