The service at this restaurant is disgusting! The host was very rude. My overall experience was horrible.

This restaurant wants to be upscale based on the pricing. It fails to meet the mark. There were 3 in our party and it took 75-90 minutes to get soup, salad, and dessert. It was not terribly busy on a Tuesday evening. We asked our waitress for details on the dessert menu and she had no clue. The key lime... More

I was in town for a conference where a vendor was planning to take us for dinner at Benny's. I was looking for a place for lunch and thought it should be nice because the vendor dinner usually is good at choosing a nice restaurant. I asked the server for a recommendation, he suggested the crab melt. It was average.... More

This was our first visit to Benny's and we loved it. We walked in just before the dinner rush and were seated at a table next to the windows looking out on the river. Our waiter was gracious and recommended the specials, grouper and filet mignon. We shared each others surf & turf and enjoyed it immensely! Super fresh grouper... More

Not much to say about the place. At the Landing in Jacksonville. We had reservations at a table by the window but they had a door problem to outside so hot air was coming in. Moved to a table in the back which was okay. I had the jumbalaya which was extremely disappointing.. tasted and look like lots of tomato... More

They have great waterfront views. The food was ok and the prices are moderate. Steak portions are large. The crab cakes are average. Our waiter was great. He checked in often and was polite.

We went to Benny's for the farewell dinner with our tour group. The setting on the river walk seemed pleasant, and the table setting were attractive. However the food did not match the ambiance. Four of us, including our tour sirector, ordered NY strip steak, which turned out to be tough and full of gristle that the steak knife could... More

Our table had crumbs on it from the previous customers. We received our bread without plates. The mens restroom could have used some attention and a new faucet.. The view of the river was nice but the food was mediocre. They restaurant could use some attention from new management. It wasn't a terrible experience but it wasn't great, either.

What do Mahi-Mahi, Ribeye and NY Strip all have in common at this restaurant? They were all extremely bad. My comment to our waitress who was very nice and extremely apologetic was to find a different job because if this is the norm, they will not be around much longer. My NY Strip had gristle crossing through it (never had... More
