The food is excellent. Order from the "Specials" menu, which means these are their chef creations. BEST GRILLED SALMON ANYWHERE! This is like a chef owned place, and interesting & in quality like a top locally owned rest, or like something in the City. Big menu, interesting items, nice atmosphere & decor, new & modern, service is good, well managed.... More

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.

Description
A high-energy neighborhood restaurant and tavern, Bennigan's is relentlessly focused on the people, food and experience that define it. Every member of the team "bleeds green" to go above and beyond the casual dining expectations of today. Our new restaurant design is warm and inviting, putting the focus on the food, the drinks and, as always, the Irish Hospitality. Bennigan's has always been a neighborhood favorite - not just for food and drinks, but as a place to meet friends and kick back for a while. That spirit lives on in everything we do, every single day. It's the way Bennigan's was created, and it's the way our Legendary story continues.
