We traveled to Benezette to observe the elk & we decided to eat at the Benezette Hotel for lunch & dinner. Great menu selection, wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food came out quickly & was hot & delicious. Will stop again!!

Even though they were very busy, we got our food quickly. The waitress forgot to bring our vegetables but we had plenty to eat without them. Very generous portions for the money. We would definitely return.

This small restaurant is the only place in the area to grab a bite to eat. We ordered the brisket from the smokehouse menu. Three large slices of wonderfully smoked brisket with a side of french fries for a VERY reasonable price. Their bbq sauce...is delightful and not overly swee with a bit of heat. They are short staffed but fully staffed with people who care about their job. I'd recommend if you're in the area. Be patient, it's worth it.More

We stopped here quite frankly because there weren't any other options. The staff was very nice and friendly. The food and drinks were average, at best.

We had lunch here on a Friday. I had the lunch special of a brisket sandwich and chips. My husband got the elk burger. Both were really good. Hope to make it back again.

Visited on a Tuesday. Short staffed. Waited 15 minutes to be seated with over half the tables empty. Cheeseburger, golden garlic fries & Turkey on Texas toast with mashed potatoes all smothered in gravy. Took 45 minutes to get our food. Did not bring any...silverware and only one napkin for both of us. Cheeseburger was burnt on the outside and completely raw in the inside. Turkey was on regular bread, not texas toast and mashed potatoes were instant. Meal was horrible & over priced. Service was astoundingly bad. On top of that, the men's room has no door on it's stalls. Talk about lack of privacy We'll never go back there.More

Had the elk burger while in the area looking for elk. The food was good; taste is similar to venison. Friendly and attentive staff.

Our waitress greeted us with warm smiles. She took our drink orders, and brought them to us quickly. Then, she disappeared. Another waitress took our food order. I don’t remember who brought us the food. A different person brought us the bill. After a long...wait, I accosted another waitress so we could pay the bill. Aside from the service, food was also disappointing. The smoked wings were dry. The sandwich reminded me of a Wendy’s commercial, where’s the beef …More

Thank you for having the food truck at the visitor center. It allowed the kids to get something to east while we waited for the elk to show up at dusk. The food was great and the guys running the truck were nice and friendly....Reasonable prices too!More

I ate here before and it was good place was clean and the service was great. This time it was another story. It was hotter inside than outside and it was 90 plus humidity, flies were buzzing around everywhere, prime rib was bland and needed...more seasoning and the floor needed swept.More

We stayed at cabins in Benezette and this was one of two places on the main drag to eat. We wound up eating here both nights as the other place is only opens Fri-Sun. The Benezette hotels offers more than just bar food. We had...burgers the first night and prime rib the second night. A great place to grab a bite that's close to everything.More

The Benezette hotel and restaurant are almost a required stop when you come to see the elk. There was a steady line of customers waiting outside each time we drove by so on our last day here we went in. The prices are very reasonable...and the smoked brisket was very tasty. The meatloaf was not good however, being way over spiced with what tasted like rosemary or thyme. The service was very good with waitresses that appear to truly enjoy their jobs.More

We found this little restaurant on S Michael St on right hand side of street before you get to Brusselles St across from the Sheetz station on the corner of Depot St and S. Michael St. called Corner Restaurant. I did not find any listing...on Trip Advisor. I did find a listing on Yelp (I think) for a restaurant that looked like this place but had the address as 202 Chestnut St. This is definitely not Chestnut St. on Yelp listing it is called St. Marys Corner Restaurant. So use the first directions I gave but could possibly be called St Marys Corner Restaurant. Hope you find it.We were there for breakfast. Little crowded . We had to stand and wait for a table. But was worth it. My husband ordered 2 eggs with toast and homefries and sausage patties. I had two eggs and homefries and bacon. We both enjoyed our meals. Generous portions of delicious food, My husband enjoyed his sausage which I think was made there. I am diabetic so I shared my meal with my husband, I think I got 4 pieces of bacon but I could only have one, I gave him my toast as I wanted the home fries. They were delicious. But I could only have a little less than half of what they gave me.which was about 1/2 cup. So they probably gave me about 1 1/4 cup of home fries. But he helped me with that also. Food was wonderful and service was great. We went back the next morning but they were closed. We were disappointed. Waitress said they had been there about 19 yrs. I couldn't understand why there were no reviews for this place on Trip Advisor but I believe the confusion about the location and the address had something to do with this. Also there is another Corner Restaurant called Keystone Corner Restaurant located closeby which can also add to the confusion.More

We stopped in to have an early dinner. There was a 45 minute wait to eat inside. No outside dining which was disappointing during Covid! We tried our first Elk burger and it was very good and reasonably priced. There are not too many other...choices for dinner in this area. Mostly bar food but good, cheap bar food!More

Limited menu and we were there at 3 and was told no brisket until 4 (which is what we wanted) and no baked potatoes even though they were on the limited menu. The ribs were fall-off-the bone good. Mashed potatoes instead of baked potato were...ok. Restaurant was clean and took extra maybe unnecessary precautions because of Covid-19. I would eat here again.More
