“Complete your visit by going to the Blue Benn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

When we arrived on a Satruday afternoon around 1 there was quite the line. Since we had been here before we had our hearts set on eating here again. We waited about twenty minutes, we must have come at the rush! But it was completely worth it. They have a big menu but my favorite is the baked mac and cheese. My husband loves the meatloaf. It is a true diner with great food and desserts. If there is a wait, it is worth it!

“Fun place, Fine Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

We were two couples, staying overnight in Bennington on our way to the Maine coast. We went to the diner for breakfast, found a very crowded Saturday morning spot, and found seats at the counter. They had an amazingly varied menu. We all had dishes we liked and we especially enjoyed the welcoming, gracious wait staff.

“Great liver and onions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

The place was packed, a real diner brought to the area in 1948, We spent 45 minutes waiting (no names on list--just the honor system as to who was next in line) with folks from all over the country who say they drive miles just to eat here. The visit was like dropping back in time to the 1940's. One interesting fact, they had authentic waitresses, not just servers. What, can I say that? If we lived here this would be a frequent go-to- place. My liver and onions were cooked to order with fresh cut fries. My wife had the fried scallops, a generous portion, w/fries

“A great little diner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stopped here based on the Tripadvisor review. It is a great little diner! The waitresses are typical diner waitresses. They try to act brusk but they are really very nice! The food was good. It is not gourmet but who would expect that anyway?

It was a fun experience and our waitress made it so! good comfort food!!

“Whatcha want, honey?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The food was heaping, inventive, and borderline inedible. But the waitresses were wonderful; just what you want in an unimproved diner.
