Every visit to NMB we have to have a dinner at Benny Rappa's. What I like best is they will make anything you want given they have the ingredients. My favorite is a seafood creation over whit wine garlic sauce and angel hair pasta!!! Service is great as well. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

This is my favorite lunch place. The food is always fresh and home made. The service is gracious and the atmosphere is just right. I love the antipasto salad with tuna and various meats and cheese. Delicious. I also recommend their ravioli, and piccata offerings. Actually I think it is impossible to get a bad meal here.

My husband and I go to Benny's as often as we can and we are never disappointed. We are greeted warmly and our service and meal was excellent. This is why we go back again and again!

We keep a running list of places we like in the North Myrtle Beach area and Benny Rapa's is on the list. The service is consistently good. The menu changes frequently and often has innovative offerings. That said, as one might expect, there is some risk involved in experimentation. Some of the new offerings are exquisite. Sometimes they sound better... More

No one in the party of five was pleased with his/her meal. The pasta was really mushy. We ate early in the evening because we could not get a reservation for later. We thought that might be a good sign. We were wrong. The salads were wilted, rusty and need I say more? I was the only one at the... More

Here you'll find incredible service with even better food. The menu is flexible to accommodate all tastes. The wine list is extensive and the whole staff was friendly even though we stayed an hour past close. Was very pleasantly surprised with the caliber of this restaurant. Highly recommend.

Took my family here with 2 other families from our area because the owner is a local and friend of one of the people in our group. Food was absolutely amazing and very reasonably priced for the food that was served. Under priced to be honest. Would not hesitate to pay more. Thank you Benny for making Myrtle Beach a... More
