My wife picked this diner stop on the internet - and since we'd just been to the Baseball Hall of Fame - I can say she hit a homerun! We walked in and had a nice visit with some locals as we waited for a booth - less than 5 minutes. When the waitress called us through the door we... read more

The Blue Benn is terrific! Cute, authentic diner atmosphere. Great diner-style food. It's small, so expect to wait. But it's worth it. We try to have breakfast here whenever we're in the area.

Once we were finished at Bennington Pottery, one of my friends asked the lady behind the counter to recommend a good place to eat and she directed us to Blue Benn Diner. Honestly, I would have never stopped there on my own as it looks pretty rough on the outside and it's very cramped in the inside, but once seated... More

It's like stepping to a 50's diner, but with an extensive menu of delicious foods. Service is fast and friendly. I loved this place.

My fiancé and I stopped in for what we hoped was going to be a quick meal. We ended up waiting at least 20 minutes for a counter seat because the waitress told us to wait for another group, which had all given up and left. She didn't even bother to let us know the counter was open after they... More

It remains a mystery to me why people are raving about this place. It sure has charm of an old diner (which it is), but that's probably the only reason I give it two stars instead of one (or zero, if that were possible). The service was adequate. The food was some of the worst we ever bought anywhere, and... More

Took visiting relatives to the Blue Benn and it did not disappoint. Food was hot, quick and delicious, exactly what you want from a diner. I saw comments about the service but the only time I have seen trouble arise at the restaurant is when people are impatient in the entranceway while waiting for their booths (sticking their heads in,...

My Mom and I were driving through the area and wanted a good suggestion to grab a bite. I stopped at the VT Visitors Center and asked what they thought of getting a good meal close to Bennington and right away they told me to go to this Blue Benn Diner. It looks like an old 50's diner outside and... More

I stopped in with my family after a weekend in Killington. It's one of those old school aluminum diners which are always hit or miss. We were hoping for some small town New England charm. We were disappointed. As soon as we walked in the door, (2 adults, 2 small boys), a passing waitress barked at us to wait outside... More

You won't be disappointed! The food is always good and the atmosphere is definitely vintage diner. I don't think they've changed a thing since the 50's. They have a menu, but you can also check out a huge selection from the off menu items listed on the wall. They server breakfast all day. Try the breakfast burrito if you have... More
