Small bar with good beer selection and friendly service.Brett was pulling pints and kept us in easy conversation. Nice long beer counter and not too big. Winter so we could not sit outside facing the Arkansaw river. Nothing fancy but definately not a Dive.

We were drawn in by a blues duo playing in the garden. It was a nice day to sit out enjoying a leisurely lunch. Music was just right. Food was gone. We had salad and sandwich, buy no beer.

We happened upon the restaurant while walking in downtown Salida. The inside dinning is more bar like but they have a great outside patio to dine on. It was private and shading and provided a great place to eat our great food. The portions were very big and the service was exceptional. There was no need to ask for anything... More

What happened to Bensons? We were drawn in by the outdoor seating, and our past experiences, but wow! Very poor service and mediocre food are not worth the nice outdoor seating. They were out of a few key items we were told after ordering. The waitress and bartender forgot to bring items we ordered, and when we did get most... More

The food was just okay, nothing spectacular. I ordered the burger and agree with another review I read, it was a bit over cooked and lacked flavor. The service was very friendly but a bit slow.

We picked this place based on a review from our river guide. She said these were the best burgers in town. We were sorely disappointed. The burgers were overcooked and dry. The service was slow, and they didn't get our bill correct. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I was in town with a group. Good bar w/ above average selections. The bartenders were friendly & knowledgeable. Though we only stopped by for drinks, we ended up going there twice because it was just a relaxing spot and the layout is great. Not too crowded, not too spreadout either. We will be back!

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Benson's. Has a little bit of a British flavor which reminded us of our time in Great Britain. I ordered the Fish and Chips which was a fabulous meal - both fish and fries - and chased it down with a Dark Porter beer. My wife had the reuben sandwich with sweet potato... More
