Food is good, drinks are good, local feel. They have both an upstairs and downstairs. The downstairs was only open in the winter though when we were there. Only negative is that bathrooms are upstairs and in torrential rain it means you have to go outside and up the outside slippery stairs to get to it and the bathrooms are COLD in the winter. Otherwise would return.

Our group of five had a very positive experience. Since we had no reservations we were seated on a covered, heated deck which was very comfortable despite the cold weather. Our group ordered filet, seafood platter, swordfish, and a vegan salad. Every entree was quite good. Overall, a great dining experience.

Although prices are always reasonable, Benjamin's runs frequent half price specials during the week on their raw bar oysters, clams and shrimp. There is indoor seating upstairs and down and several outside tables during warm weather. We prefer sitting at the downstairs bar where we can watch the food preparation..
