On Aug. 1, 2014, I dined at the restaurant for a 60th High School Reunion. Great atmosphere, food and service. Would highly recommend it. It is a Bed and Breakfast. I didn't stay there, but the classmates who did said really nice things about their stay. Dick Metzgar Clayton, GA The selections on first time visit do not go back... More

We had a wonderful dining experience. The service was superb, the food excellent. And joining Peter for an after dinner drink in the cozy bar was a treat. We don't get to the Benn Conger as often as we would like, but every time we go, we wonder why we waited so long to return. You won't be disappointed!

This is probably the 4th or 5th time I have enjoyed a great meal at the BGI. The environment, the host (either Peter or Doug), the quality of the food and the wait staff always give you a outstanding time and for true value. If you are looking for delicious food, intimate and detailed dining experience this is definitely the... More

Visiting with family took us to this restaurant where we were treated like family and there was no need to ask for seconds! The prime rib, duck and veal oscar were out of this world and the accompaniments surprising! There were veggie towers that you couldn't stop eating, delicious sweet potato and zucchini fries and the coolest salad presentation I... More

We spent our wedding night here 30 years ago. We are delighted it's still open. It's in the home of the man who founded Smith-Corona (typewriters) in the mid 1800s. The dining room is intimate, quiet and for just a few couples and larger groups. The mural on the wall was stunning - a castle overlooking the sea, set among... More

We were delighted to find such a complete menu at the restaurant at the Inn. Our guests had plenty of options and some chose to return for dinner the next evening b/c they liked the food and setting so much. Super convenient for guests at the Inn. Lovely setting, excellent service, delicious food well presented.

My Husband and I had a delicious meal with Doug and Peter. Not only was it tasty but the presentation was visually appealing. Dining at the Ben Conger Inn with its beautiful surroundings and attention to detail makes an ordinary evening special. Great service, great atmosphere, great food!
