We ate here on a Wednesday night. $30 per person for all you can eat. The Calabash shrimp was the best part. The other dishes were good also. My first time eating Hush Puppies, and they were great. There was lots of variety, which was good as one person in our party doesn't eat fish. She had more than enough... More

All you can eat buffet, $30 per person and so not worth the money. Food was mass produced, cold, dry and tasteless. Service was horrible. Waiters acted like you were intruding on their time. I would definitely not recommend this place.

Seafood Buffet for 2 $56 with coupon from book..not bad. Crab legs were juicy and meaty. Other seafood selections were great. Shrimp, Fish and Scallops served fried broiled sautéed and stuffed. Crab cakes steak and chicken kabobs were good.

The food was cold and/or dried out. Service was non-existent. There is lots of parking (should have been a clue).The price is nice but the saying 'you get what you pay for' is alive and well at Bennett's. Go to one of the bigger buffets, pay the higher price and have a good meal.

Unpleasant odor and an unpacked parking lot on a Saturday night should have been my first clue! Food is subpar and heavily seasoned with salt. The steak was tough. Every thing was too salty or tastleless. Zero atmosphere and the service was below average. Waste of money. I felt physically sick when leaving. You've been warned!!!!!! Wait it out at... More

Bennetts has been around for 20+ years. It is a very casual atmosphere, and it seems most locals probably dine here often. The buffet had a nice selection of seafood, salad, meats, sides, and desserts. I wishes they had HOT steamed shrimp, but unfortunately, they only serve it chilled. Atmosphere is your typical older seafood restaurant, which I enjoy (fish,... More

We usually do not eat at buffets, so we decided to try this one. Atmosphere sucked, food was not great, then I went and got pineapple, when I picked it up to eat, there was a dead fly on it. Looked like it had been there for a while...When I approached the server about it, she said she would tell... More

Food was good for a buffet. The adult buffet was a bit pricey though. Not the best seafood, but ok for a buffet. I would probably return.

We were just within walking distance of this place and decided to try it for dinner instead of taking the baby to Sea Captains. It was fine, nothing to get excited about, certainly nothing worth driving to, but if you are just in the area and don't want to go anywhere else, it is fine.
