Went there for breakfast, Sunday morning 9 am. Place was NOT busy, couldn't order because STAFF WAS IN A MEETING??? Was told if we wanted to order, go to the bar? Really? Staff is released and marching out to wait on tables. Our waiter was quick to take our order after we sat without service for 15 minutes. The food took FOREVER. As said earlier. Place was not busy. Food finally came out and hot. Nothing special, especially paying a premium for the view. Had to remind server to refill coffee and bring butter. Breakfast was almost finished waiting to find waiter the time refill coffee and butter finally came. Been there several times, prices have gone too high, service lackluster and food is average at best.

Sat in the upper, screened dining room. Place was small but super cool, considering it was nearing 95 degrees. Ordered the feature catch sandwich, it was okay. Friend ordered their Crab Cake Sammy - now that was good. Great views, great breeze and not super crowded.

The view is incredible as you are on the Ocean looking out into the sea. The food was fairly good but standard processed food from a giant food service company. Very pricy because your on the water and average food. I will go back for the view. Great fun bar downstairs.

Not much seating so even off season it is crowded. Same food as most every other beach house. Mulligans down the street has more room, same food, same beach.

We took our family visiting from Wisconsin to Benny's for brunch on a Saturday morning - sunny day, light breeze on the upper deck. Beautiful ... right? Not so thanks to AMY.
Our waitress AMY who instantly thought she was our friend and vice versa took our 4 orders. My wife had a Virgin Bloody Mary (very poor).

After over 30 minutes, I asked how our food was coming. I noted that 4 tables had been seated after us and they had ordered, eaten, paid and left and we still had no food. Her response "Friend, we make everything fresh here so it takes some time and we are very busy this morning Friend." I should have asked if the other tables had gotten old, stale food.
About 20 minutes later, we got our orders including toast with NO BUTTER and 2 cold entrees. We were approaching one hour! Amy then avoided us. Couldn't even get butter for the toast.
Bruce, the manager, came to our table and apologized and offered free Key Lime pie w/ meringue which was quite good. He was a good guy. Thanx Bruce.

Every time AMY visited our table during the wait, we were called FRIEND to the point of severe annoyance. I am not her FRIEND and don't want to be.

Our family asked not to go there ever again.

A totally ruined meal thanks to AMY at Benny's.
