I felt a little strange going to an American based restaurant while visiting Panama, but it was hot outside and we needed a place to rest as we were walking along the Causeway. This Bennigans had a nice shaded patio overlooking the marina, so we gave it a shot. It has a mostly typical Bennigans menu, so nothing too surprising... More

I went to the one on The Causeway. Awesome menu, good Margaritas, good service. BUT, the menu looks awesome but the roast beef dip wasn't roast beef, it was more like cheap steak with little flavor (but tender), and both orders of fish and chips the fish was partially mushy (undercooked, wrong type of fish for frying?). The kids chicken... More

Bennigan's has been remodeled, the result not better than before, however the place is by the sea. I understand that the franchise collapsed or was purchased by some other company. As it has become usual in Panama, the waiters were Colombians and the service was courteous even though not fast. The food was good, the prices according to the area.... More

The food and value for the lunch menu were good. The service was horrible. It looks like a new place and people are still training. Needs some work on this. All in all I recommend the lunch menu which includes 3 courses for a good price.

I went to Bennigan's Marina last week, after a couple of months of my last visit. Bennigan's went through a refurb that lasted a couple of months, so we wanted to check it out. The place looks nicer, but I much preferred how it looked before. Ok, so 7 people went on lunch time to celebrate a coworker's birthday. We... More

I loved the lunch special and we watched the World Cup game it was a fun atmoshphere. The waitress was just okay. We had to ask for refills on our drinks, and the food took a long time to come out. But after being in Central America a few days I think they just are different than The United States... More

Ok so it's not fair to expect much from a Bennigan's, so it wasn't that bad. I had an early dinner with my mom and dad here. We had some margaritas (they were good, not the best, but good) and I had a sort of appetizer sampler with nachos and pepper jack cheese sticks (it sounded like a good idea... More

Great location, but food & service were very average. Not cool inside & still too warm on outside patio in shade under fans during the day. If you like watching soccer, however, there were large TV screens everywhere. Be sure to have them validate your municipal parking stub.
