Very posh setting, friendly staff, and always love their Monte Cristo. Very difficult to find a Bennigans and travels 60 mins to this location. Eric is a great manager and you can see the staff enjoys his leadership. Sammie was my bartender and she was veryin friendly and accomodating, in addition to an Amy Smart look-alike -- HELLO!

I drove over 2 hours round trip to get to this Bennigans. The Monte Cristo is to die for. Really disappointed that most of their locations have closed over the years. The baked potato soup was also delicious. Will be back when I am remotely in the area.

Nice because it is attached to Holiday Inn. Good for us business travelers. Club sandwich was good. Lots of TV's throughout and there is a bar.

This place can get crowded, so go early. I usually order the Monte Cristo. Burgers are great. Everything I have had is great. Their portions are quite big. prices are decent, too.

The food plates were very large and delicious. They had a good variety of known dishes with their own twist. Beer on tap was good local options and traditional. Many televisions within view of all tables. The restaurant brought in a good crowd of local sports enthusiasts.

I was staying at the Holiday Inn and to my surprise Bennigan's can be entered without leaving the hotel. I was able to host a friend and her family without having them travel too far and I could crawl back to my room, if I needed to. ;) The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was just right to enjoy...

I enjoyed a traditional hamburger and diet coke with a side salad... and New York style cheesecake for dessert. Lucy A was an excellent server and made me feel very welcome to the restaurant.
