The food served in your dining room is amazing: served HOT and your very polite and pleasant service people really know the menu. Everything was amazing except we feel the portion sizes are HUGE. We don’t see how anyone, with the exception of a linebacker, can eat everything on their plate. Also the majority of the menu has shellfish in some way, shape, or form. That limits the menu for those with seafood allergies (me). Even your daily soup was contaminated with seafood. I would understand all the “seafood” if you were located on the ocean. . . We would definitely recommend the Benbow to others and plan on revisiting your lovely inn again! We have been coming to the inn for 36 years. 🙂

Amazing place, fantastic atmosphere. Some things were spot on, others were good. Tomato salad was tasty, mushroom soup was delish. Monk fish really good but a little over salted. The old fashioned was disappointing definitely not the classic drink you’d expect from an historic bar. We’ll be back but will order simpler drinks.
