The menu and the place is outdated. Not a franchise as the brand bankrupted years ago. Many other options in Panama.

With 4 friends who had come through the Panama Canal with my husband & me, we celebrated our sailboat's arrival on the Pacific Ocean side with a nice, leisurely lunch at Bennigan's. The stunning ocean & marina view setting was worth it! The restaurant was attractive and our drinks and food (mostly, seafood) were good. The service was typical south of the USA border, slowish, but our group is well-travelled and were prepared for it. We all enjoyed ourselves and would go back next time we are in Panama City.

Service is horrible, This was a terrible experience, staff is so rude, drinks were thrown on the table, didn't wait for the food, stood up and left. Such a shame, Bennigan's is one of my favourite spots but I WILL NEVER COME BACK TO THIS ONE. Stay clear of this one.

About the same as the US. Second visit for me which just amplified the first time...Burgers are great, typical bar food. Located on Amador , so a short trip from downtown. Service always needs improvement, but this is Panama. If you are heading to Amador, great place to eat (along with about a dozen more).

Food quality was terrible, service was not attentive. We went to the Bennigans down by the Causeway, maybe it's different to the other Bennigans.. But this was not a great experience.
My husband ordered a Irish Coffee and being in a bar that promotes "Irish" you would assume they know how to make it. Well after 20 minutes he ended up with a cold coffee with Tia Maria and no cream. We send it back explaining how to make it and they didn't understand. They didn't even have a Irish whiskey behind the bar!!! That's when we thought it might not be on the menu, so after looking at the menu again we did see it... So please train your staff!! We will give them another try in the future to see if things have approved, but for now we stay away from Bennigans.
