Good food, excellent service and dated decor!

The decor at this Bennigan's was absolutely dated and worn. There is no denying this basic fact but the service and food was very good. The waitress helped us right away and was very accommodating of my special requests in relation to my lunch. Everything came out just as requested and was hot... read more

A group of us went to Bennigan's on Sunday afternoon and it was very good. We were waited on right away. I had potatoe soup and salad and both were great. They were large portions. We had a group of 12 people and everyone was served on time and everyone liked what they got. For a large group you couldn't... More

New Year's Eve we just want a bite to eat before enjoying the night. Took us about 5 min to even be noticed at the door to be seated, waited 8 min and42 seconds to even get a waitress to stop and see if we wanted anything to drink. This whole time all the employees are in a booth in... More

A colleague and I went to Bennigan's for lunch while attending a conference. Service was beyond horrible! Our waitress was rude, short, curt, disrespectful, and obviously unhappy with her job. I would never in a million years recommend any other human being experience what we did!

We visited this Bennigans on 10/25/2014, as I had received an offer for a Free Burger, Salad or Sandwich for my birthday with the purchase of another. When we walked in the door we waited 2 minutes to be seated while 3 female employees chatted it up at the end of the bar. We ordered 2 chicken strip meals at... More

It was 8:30 pm in on a Thursday night in Des Moines, IA, and we had just checked into our hotel. Few places near the airport side of town were still open, but according to Trip Advisor this restaurant was open until 10 pm. We were seated very fast & asked if we wanted something from the bar and told... More

We stopped in to the bar to get a couple of drinks and order some food to take back to our room. When we arrived there was a group of four at the bar and only two people eating. One of the group was very drunk (not funny drunk, just loud and drunk). They had the Teevee's turned up way... More

We had a burger and the Monte Cristo sandwich. The food was flavorful, the restaurant clean and the wait staff was good. Not particularly memorable, but it was good.

Chose this establishment because it was close to our hotel. Loved the Irish flare but I've been to Ireland and this is not irish food. Our meals were average to good with the exception of one in our party (didn't like the deep fried sandwich they ordered). Our waiter was average at best. All in all, I would look around... More
