I've been downtown and had the best they had to offefed (Houston's, Ruth Crisp's) and south suburds Bogarts which was my favorite but Mr. Benny's has them all beat hands down.Pricey but worth it.(market value.)

At the end of a six-day road-trip from Arizona through sight-seeing in Colorado, this was a perfect last supper. Rebecca was instantly welcoming and friendly as we walked through the door, and the service she provided through the evening was impeccably warm. The bread was without question the best fresh-baked loaf that my grandmother didn't bake. The steak filet was... More

Haven't been here in a long time. . rather surprised to see men in t shirts and baseball caps during dinner. I thought this place was more upscale than that.

this was our second time here. Your first stop is at the bar where Larry ? makes the best martini's south of Madison street.The steaks are as good as any downtown. Service was attentive and prompt. Not cheap but well worth it.

Went to Mr. Benny's to listen to our friend Jim Bulanda sing - it was his debut performance. The staff is very friendly. We were in the main dining room, but there is additional booth seating inside the bar area, and also a separate room for private events. Top-shelf liquor available. The only downside is the high prices, and the... More

First time I ate here was when they were in a little building off Western Ave. You had to know where you were going to find it. I was awe-struck with the friendly staff and the exceptional quality of the food. Decades later this remains my Italian Restaurant of choice in Chicagoland for dinner. They have been in the Cicero...

Poor quality and overpriced! Had the rack of lamb, fatty, hardly any meat and it had to be grilled on a dirty grill. Also had shrimp de jonghe got 4 shrimp and all kinds of bread crumbs. The thousand island salad dressing seemed like a doctored-up French. The best thing about this experience was the ambiance.

After traveling all day my husband and I were looking for a good meal and a quiet place to relax. Just around the corner from the Hampton Inn (not too far off I 57) we found Mr. Benny's in Matteson. Wait staff were friendly, cold cocktails and warm fresh rolls helped us unwind. We ordered the special Halibut and Lamb... More
