The ambiance is good. The service is very friendly. But when they couldn't get my meal right twice (no meat or onions on a salad), I was underwhelmed. My fellow diners enjoyed their food, however. Sir Ben's has been here for decades and often has live music.

As a college student almost 20 years ago, I loved the atmosphere and vibe at Sir Ben's. My group of friends met there at least once a week for a delicious sandwich, a beer and a welcoming pub environment. Over the years, the food has gotten better, the taps have gotten better and the warm, welcoming vibe has remained firmly... More

Such a wonderful diversion from chain places. I had the squash soup and it might be the best soup I have ever tasted! Also, the bacon guacamole sandwich is freaky good! The great part of the sandwiches is that you can build it the way you want it from bread to vegetables, etc. They also have a huge selection of... More

The owners are absolutely amazing and so accommodating. The food was great. We had a rather large crowd and they were able to seat us all together and away from the general crowd. The owners sat with us and told us all of the tales of the hauntings that go on in their restaurant, gave us a tour and answered... More

New owners make this spot even more fun — always friendly service, quick and delicious food, wide variety of local and other brews on tap, and interesting places to sit inside and out; frequent live music.

I ate here with my husband and my brother for lunch on a Saturday. The menu has typical and well prepared sandwich options (Reuben, Cuban, etc) usually with a unique twist, great local beer selection, and gluten-free bread available for substitute. No, you're not really overlooking Lake Superior, that should be obvious if you see the map, but it's still... More

I have eaten here a couple of times now. Each time has been fabulous! It has a nice cozy atmosphere with a hometown feel. I highly recommend the reuben sandwich, french onion soup, squash soup, and don't forget the chocolate bread pudding and french silk pie...yum! They really have a nice selection of local brews also.

This a very fun, friendly spot with good beer choices. They also serve good bar food. Open Mike night has local talent and is fun. Nice patio for outdoor seating.
