Good food - great sports bar.

Had several meals here when spending a couple of weeks in Santa Clara. The bar is a setup with booths, some tables and bar seating. A good cross between a sports bar and an Irish style pub. The fare is a mixture of pub grub and Mexican. My highlights were their burger, their 'egg rolls' and... read more

I was here the entire week and visited this place only once. I wanted to go back to this place but could not due to other appointments in town. A very good place to gather for a drink.

It was a long time since I visit, and some friends invited me to go. It was not good. I was overcharged, dirty, and service not that good neither. I hope I'm not going back there.

Ate here twice -- back to back evenings. Excellent fish & chips, large selection of beers. Had salads, soups, sandwiches, and fish & chips. Interesting menu for all tastes. Obviously, would return. Right next door to Avatar Hotel.

This restaurant has been there for a long time (more than 20 years) so I guess it's pretty popular. Their signature dish is a monte cristo sandwich - good, but not special. Everything was ok, but not great - ok food, ok seats, ok service. No complaints, but just OK.

My friend and I went here once for dinner and once for lunch. Bennigan's does better with the greasy pub grub (fish and chips, chicken tenders, Monte Cristo sandwich) than any light fare (a Southwest chicken salad was off-putting). Prices are very reasonable, and the happy hour (after 9pm on weeknights) offers cheap finger foods like the awesome onion ring... More

Great food, cool atmosphere. Perfect for a night out or for a quick lunch. Place comes to life after 7pm on Friday's and Saturday's. Perfect place for a dinner before a movie at AMC near by.
