We have been patronizing Bennett's for over 5 years, going out to eat there at least once a month. Very good seafood, good wine list and friendly service. Recommend it. They do start serving later in the morning, though.

Good food at happy hour. Drinks a bit pricey. They enforce 6 Pm end of happy hour with no flexibility Great mac and cheese. Good burger. Menu a bit boring after two or three visits

We enjoyed a happy hour at Bennett's. Reservations are suggested but we didn't realize that and they accommodated us anyway. The happy hour food and drink choices are a great sampling of what Bennett's has to offer. The food was delicious!

Welcome At Bennett's we are committed to serving authentic, original food. You won't find artificial preservatives, colors or sweeteners. No flavor enhancers, hydrogenated oils or processed foods. What you will find, are the freshest, most authentic ingredients we can offer. Most of our ingredients are deeply rooted in the Cascadia region - an area extending from northern California to southern Alaska, and the coast to the continental divide, taking in Washington, most of Oregon and Idaho and part of Montana. We buy from producers who share our commitment to whole foods and handmade fare. People dedicated to the simple pleasures of creating delicious food and drink the way it was intended to be made; fresh from the earth, the sea and the vine.
