    Four of us went to brunch at Benne on Eagle. We had a reservation and we were seated right away. Our server was Bo, and he did a great job. Two of us had the mushroom toast with softly scrambled eggs, one had the avocado toast with eggs over easy and one had the chicken and waffles. Everybody was very pleased with the food. The coffee was good. If I had to make any negative comments, it would be that I thought there was too much salt in the food, but we never use any salt when cooking at home, so the salt content in the food was probably quite normal for most people. We all very much enjoyed the brunch and will definitely return.

    We showed up and restaurant was closed. Gentlemen/chef was super nice and confirmed they were closed. Our previous dining experiences at BOE were excellent!

    Unfortunately, Benne did not live up to our hopes. Overall I would say the food was average with a standout item being the sweet potato waffles (amazing!) The most disappointing part however was our waitresses. It turns out the restaurant also supports the hotel in back. I am not sure if this mean the waitresses also deliver the room service food but our waitress disappeared at least twice for 10 mins or so. We had to ask another waitress for help right after our food was delivered.

    Had a delicious breakfast. The Monte Cristo and fruit were nicely presented and I recommend them both! Well done!

    Benne is not to be missed. Although I did miss Fried Green Tomatoes on the menu - otherwise - excellent

    We were very disappointed this morning. Service was very slow to respond. We have had great meals here before, but definitely noticed a decrease in quality. The brunch menu was lackluster and our server seemed overwhelmed and unable to properly attend to his tables. We noticed that the tables around us also seemed frustrated.

    Sorry to report that we were disappointed, despite several recommendations to try this restaurant. I got the shrimp and grits, which was supposed to be one of their specialities, and I thought it was average at best. My husband's dish was also mediocre. Had really been looking forward to going here during our visit, so it was a real disappointment.
