Almost lacking in character

It has no character of it's own... It's supposed to be Irish, but it literally felt more like a safeway or a very boring Denny's. NOT for special occasions.

We just had left the Greatful Dead show at Levi's stadium and had to walk a mile to try to find a cab to get back to our hotel. Low and behold there was a Bennigans! Open late! They weren't serving food any longer but we were able to get a drink and wait out the rush of people and... More

Was seated for 25 minutes and nobody offered me anything. manager walked by me several times and said nothing. Sitting at a table for almost 1/2 hour with a menu and utensils should have been a give away for the dozen staff members that also walked by. restaurant was not busy. No excuse. Here you go with a stunningly bad... More

Their burgers are great and they have a nice variety of beers. We can in to watch a sport game and have dinner and we had a great time and love that they didn't try to rush us out. The staff was great and the bartender was awesome. We will be back again and again.

Our recent trip to Santa Clara was for the Stadium game between the LA Kings and San Jose Sharks (Kings won 2-1, continuing their dominance over their Northern California rivals). We headed to Bennigans for lunch on our first day as it was rather close to the hotel. There was a group of 11 of us and they had us... More

Bennigan's is one of those places that you enjoy or you don't and this is one of the last standing. It has pub food, liquor, and tchotchkes. More fun to go to when you are a teen on up. The fact that most have gone under makes it a more unique experience now. you can head over after the movies... More
