Restaurant Reviews

Here's what guests are saying about our restaurant!

Loved our stay at Benbow Inn and we will be back. The atmosphere & overall ambience, along with the professional,friendly staff made the stay a one-of-a-kind experience! The dining room along with it’s staff, and the delicious selections (portion size = Large) made dining on site a great choice. From the room to the upper lobby, the antique decor carried us back to a more luxurious, somehow simpler, time – creating a slower, very relaxing mini-vacation. Thank you, Benbow Inn!!

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. 🙂

I’m a local but like to treat myself and visitors to a stay or at least dinner at the Benbow. It’s a beautiful historic inn and the food is divine! Christmas decorations were beautiful!
