“Great Value”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

My wife is from the area. And so when we're up and visiting we seem to always make a trip to The Ben-Mar. My father in laws favorite place. They have their specials with great prices. And they have plenty of other items to order. I really like the prime rib. It is cooked just the way it should be RARE. The house dressing is very good, creamy garlic. Wine list is limited so don't look for a lot. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food at a good price in a small town.

“Salmon in Parchment paper”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Ordered this salmon and veggies in parchment paper and it was great. They also have delicious sausage and egg omletts . We have eaten here many times. They have good breakfast and the staff is very friendly Family owned and operated for many years. They treat you like family. I would certainly recommend.

Interesting restaurant. On entry it sort of takes one back a few years. Had the lentil soup, house salad and Veal Francaise with pasta. Not bad..... but the pasta tomato sauce needed a bit of flavor, as is, it tasted right out of the can.

“Always a good choice”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Recently enjoyed both breakfast and dinner and were very satisfied. Breakfast special was very reasonable and excellent. Our guest raved about her seafood dinner selection. Pleasant background music was also appreciated as was the friendly waitstaff. Large menu selection has something for everyone. We find the Ben Mar to serve consistently well-prepared food for a reasonable price. They even offer a special birthday month card for a reduced price dinner.
