Nice local place

We hadn't been here in over ten years. Back then, just burgers and the like. Went in today and had a nice surprise. An expanded menu with many kinds of food offered. The wife had a Haddock sandwich and got a nice piece of fish, done just right. I had a hot roast beef (my first in a long time)... read more

We took a dinner take out from here and expected something good. The restaurant has a large sign outside that says they do take outs, so we figured they must know how to pack a good take out. We asked for sour cream and butter for our baked potatoes and when we opened our dinners all we had were plain... More

You can be at Jensens for any meal of the day and get good food at reasonable prices. The Chefs Salad is the best on menu. Too much to eat but great.

The food was awful. Toast & hash browns were burnt. Overeasy eggs were barely done, slid across the plate. Service was OK but you could tell they don't carry out much business. I felt as if I was watching an episode of Restaurant Impossible where Chef Irvine is spitting out the food. If any true chef ever walked in there... More

My trek back home just got better....stopped in for a hearty breakfast and saw pumpkin waffles on the blackboard. Light, fluffy delight! Mild pumpkin taste,crisp bacon and Vermont maple syrup. Thank you Juanita for the great service🌞

Jensen's is a must stop anytime we go to Bennington Vt. The place is homey with a wood burning stove right in the middle of the restaurant. Toasty warm on a raw early November Sunday afternoon. It is a no frills family operation. The service is fast and friendly.......and the food is great. I recommend the hot turkey sandwich with... More

Nothing really to recommend. Service was just ok but the food was pretty blah. Home fries were burned and tasted like bacon. Yoast was overdone. Rally nothing to say positive.

Ordered a chicken Caesar salad. Very little chicken, way too much croutons. Although the dressing was quite good. Can't comment on anything else.

We had a late lunch her on a rainy fall afternoon. The menu was good with lots of choice. We decided on the turkey dinner and the hot beef sandwiches. The mashed potatoes with gravy were awesome. Friendly cheerful service. I'd love to go back again. Lots of parking, single women's washroom (how do the bus tours manage with that?)... More

We eat breakfast here every time we're visiting family in Bennington. It's a charming, back-in-time kind of place where you seat yourself & most of the people know each other. Our breakfast & the service are always great! It was a little pricey when we took our 3 little kids with us. Just for breakfast, our bill was over $30... More
