“Avg menu and OK service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Our office team visited Bennigan's for one of the fare well lunches! Well it did not surprise us at all...Very simple menu and not many things that are much interesting. Compare it with Red Robin and you might feel them lacking.
Again food quality is OK, nothing bad about it... Burger menu is the most inviting :)
Fajitas were average, New Cajun Chicken O'Toole is pretty average as well as Tilapia.

Again an avg. american food joint!

“It's Bennigan's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

Unless you sit at the bar, you'll get better service at a McDonald's. At the bar they have to notice you - so by default you get "better" service.

A lot of younger people working here who, it seems, would rather be out doing something else.

Food is typical.

Beer is cold and sometimes you get a bartender with a personality.

“Take a pass, thanks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Food here tastes like its all fried in old grease. Portions are inconsistent and the reuben I had was made with MAYBE 1 tablespoon of sauerkraut to 3 slices of bread. When I explained to the manager why I did not each much on my plate, he did nothing. No free refills on drinks with meals, either. Bummer.

“I thought they had all closed down!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

It's right next to the Avatar Hotel. We were seated immediately by a friendly hostess. The waitress was fantastic. Food was standard Bennigans, but better than average. Drink prices were fair, and food prices were fair.
