When staying in benzett in the winter many things are closed. We were looking for dinner not too far away. Big trout was just 10 miles from our cabin and not a bad drive at all. They were just opening and due to pretty nasty...weather outside we mostly had the place to ourselves. Pleasant waitress and chef. Husband got the Marty burger with onion rings and I had the Marty jr burger with bottleneck fries. We were both thrilled with our delicious food and pleasant staff. Didn’t wait long at all either. Clean inside and looks like some improvements have been done but it’s a little dated. We are so glad we made the drive!! There is also a family dollar next to it if you need to stock up on anything.More

We went in for dinner about 4:30. They were just getting started. The place is quaint and clean and the food was excellent. The waitress was very friendly and told us where to hit the spots for the Elk viewing.

We sat at the bar and had wings, fries and drinks. Good service and the food was good too. In speaking with the other patrons who frequent the restaurant they said they also enjoy the food as well.

Looks like a recent remodel by new owners. Nice inside with friendly staff. Food was excellent but since it wasn't busy on a Wednesday night service should have been faster. Prices were similar to home (another small town in New York) and appropriate for the...food served. Would eat there again.More

2 steps above all the food within 50+ miles. If you want a good meal go here, seating might not be that attractive , but food is amazing. All the other local food is mostly fried, pub fare, and italian. A pleasurable experience dining close...to Benezette. So good, that this is the only place we bought food from the whole trip. Fresh Quality food! Wish I would have taken pics of the food because even the plating of it was beautiful. Crabcakes were awesome, soup awesome, salad great!More

Nice, clean, friendly . Good small town feel. Good service. Only several tables of guests were there, so we had good service.Fried fish was good , quesadillas and cole slaw, too, but the star of the show was the mushroom brie bisque. Great tap water...too if there are any water nerds like me out there.More

A good place to eat, but be prepared to wait a really, really long time for your food. The bottleneck fries are really good. The food is good, but we don't go their unless we have a lot of time.

We went in and there was no one in the restaurant side. When a lady came out I asked if she was open and she yelled you opened the door didn't you! She was very rude and I should have just left. The food was...ok but very pricey for what we ordered. (Steak salad was $14 and not very big or fresh) She eventually warmed up to is and at the end decided to treat us decently, I'm guessing to get a tip. Really upset to learn she is the owner. And the food is the 3 stars.More

The mushroom brie soup was absolutely delicious, wished I had ordered a second bowl of it! My husbands fries were outstanding, with some kind of yummy dipping sauce. The rest of the meal was average, decent food. There was one person waiting on tables in...both the bar & the restaurant, so service was really slow. We are guessing he might have been the manager, as he was complaining to other customers about not being able to get help. It was an okay place to eat, but if we are in the area again, we'll fight the crowds & try the places in Benezette.More

We stopped here while visiting Bennezette, it was recomended by the owner of the guest cabins we were staying in. Excellent food, warm, friendly service. Portions were large and the garlic mashed potatoes are awesome. Also the stuffed mushrooms are amazing. Will definetly stop here...on our next trip to Elk County.More
