It was our anniversary dinner, and the food, service, and beautiful ocean background made it perfect. We had a huge clambake with shrimp, snow crab, corn, potatoes and andouille sausage. Delicious! Will be back again.

Two big problems:

-The whole snapper was deep fried until it was uneatable.

-The server kept asking if everything was wonderful even though I could not eat my snapper.

I didn't know how to order. I didn't realize that what you called a Lobster Dip was a Lobster roll. I ordered a crab cake which was delicious. Our server suggested I get a side with it. I picked Asian Noodles when I would have rather had spinach. Asian Noodles didn't go at all.

My family of 6 went to Bennys to celebrate a birthday. We have been there numerous times fir many celebrations. Last night was a disaster! From the second we arrived until we left the customer service was horrible. We were seated at a high top table with a big umbrella in the middle that blocked the ability to have a conversation with the person across from you. The umbrella was permanently secured to the table and they would not allow us to open it since they said the wind was blowing.
Our food came out plate by plate and by the time we got the sides to go with our entre, the entrees were cold. The hostess in the front with her fake eyelashes and purple hair was worthless when my husband asked about our food. We all got our meals at a different time as well.
The restrooms were disgusting and you’d think with COVID that they would be mire attentive to the over flowing receptacles. The staffer that were folding napkins were not wearing masks and they were wrapping silverware.
There was no one overseeing the service and even though this is not a classy 5 star dining venue, you do expect good service, clean restrooms, serving etiquette. There was none if that last night!
We might need to find a new place to celebrate!

We love Benny's and have eaten there many times, but on Valentine's Day we had a LONG wait for our food.

Our entrees came out at least 1/2 hour and maybe more after our appetizer was finished. And that took a while.

We ordered the special Valentine's Day cake for dessert. Should have been out in a few minutes. That took more than 1/2 hour as well... for cake. We were thinking of canceling and just paying for our dinner and getting dessert somewhere else.

It was a holiday, but the restaurant didn't seem much more crowded than usual -- we were seated right away and there were plenty of tables at the time. Just really slow service. I don't think it was the server's fault. She was charming and helpful, and the food was great as usual.

My Valentines Dinner was disappointing to say the least. Booked it a few weeks in advance. Having a reservation didn’t seem to matter. Was told to go upstairs and pick any square table. No escort by the multiple people at the desk. Then we order and my partner wasn’t happy with her Lobster Salad as she searched for the 1/4 cup of Lobster hidden in the lettuce. She told the waiter that she was unhappy and he went to management to get it fixed and came back and said the manager basically said too bad. I’ve been in the service industry for years, what manager does this? Can’t even bring his or herself up to deal with it in person? I felt bad for both the waiter and my date. It was just silly. To top it off I get an email from Open Table that says we didn’t show up to our reservation. Horrible!! Next...

This place is better for lunch after a day at the beach. The food is so so. At dinner time it was pretty empty on a Sunday night and the food took 40 minutes. When the food did come the fried clam strips were hard as a rock and very over cooked. The fish fry was good. Pineapple drink was yummy. Nice beach view and staff was very nice. Coed Bathrooms not very clean and toilet paper sitting on a chair.

Food was good but we waited over 40 minutes for our main dishes. Server said kitchen was backed up.
It was very disconcerting to see the staff constantly taking their masks on and off, only putting them back on when approaching a table. Some were barely wearing what would be considered a face covering.
The bar in the front of the restaurant had music and people were dancing which was a nice thing to see after so many months but again unmasked and too close.

We came here on a babysitting night, and the kids loved it. The food came out quickly, which is always a plus when you're with kids. The menu has something for everyone and the beachfront location feels more celebratory/special. Expect higher prices when you're on prime real estate because folks need to pay higher rent. That said, we didn't think their prices were outrageous for a seafood restaurant. Veronica was our server and she's great and made sure the kids had everything they needed.

It was nice to be outdoors and enjoy good food.
But except that when it was time to pay, the server just add up or pick the tip amount for you another words it very rude to not let the customer pick how much tip to gave you instead of pick one himself.

The paella was superb as was the service. My only complaint was the way we got our check. We were splitting the bill 50/50 , handed a hand held device and told all we had to do was sign. No itemized bill was given nor were we told that a 20% tip had already been added. There was a place to add the tip suggesting a 15, 18 or 20% tip. Not until I asked for an itemized bill did I realize I had already been charged a 20% tip. Had I just gone ahead and signed I would have left ANOTHER 20% tip. The waiter did not complain about having to go back to get the itemized bill and in the end did get a 20% tip. My suggestion - forget the hand held device until after the check is left for examination.

As usual the food amazing. Server Veronica did a good job, especially in keeping her mask on and on properly. Masks seem to be an issue for many of the servers and bus people. One young man actually never put his on. We asked about the mask policy and was told well you know, “this is Florida”. Patrons were actually good with masks. It was too bad, changed the ambiance for us from an outstanding to wanting to get out in a hurry 😥

From the hostess to our AMAZING SERVER Nicole, the drinks and food. Really was an amazing and much needed date night. The manager Bruce was also amazing. I asked to speak to the chef who made out salmon dish because that dish....... BEST FLIPPING SLAMON IVE EVER HAD.... and that says a lot considering I worked in restaurant and the boyfriend works still in the service industry.

We can’t wait to come back and have another mind blown experience :)

no distancing between tables outside. Our family had to split up because they were too close to the next table. Food was so-so. Being on the ocean is nice but our tale was over the beach. A party of 4 will be over $100 before tips and extras for dinner

We sat outside on the pier overlooking the beach as the sun was setting. Our server was really friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was very good but I was a bit surprised at the cost. They were out of our first choice entree and the beer selection was underwhelming but overall the experience was very good.

I like Benny's but this time around something didn't work.
Mojitos were not fresh made, tasted like syrup or ready made mix, and the Pescado Frito was missing some salt.
Appetizers scored well, Calamari, although the corn starch makes it a bit too crunchy and the chips and Gauc mash were on point.
Josh, our server was top of the line and the atmosphere makes up a bit for any fumbles.
