The food and service were spot on. I ordered a steak and it was cooked perfectly. The server we had was extremely attentive and was fantastic.

We looked forward to igloo dining again and Benstein Grille did not disappoint! The igloo was warm and cozy and the service was excellent. We dined with friends, and every meal was a hit!

Aside from the Ahi Tuna appetizer still being a bit frozen, everything else was fantastic. This was a rare occurrence & very not typical, etc. Our wonderful Waitress immediately replaced that appetizer w/ no questions asked. Great place, highly recommend

This is a GREAT PLACE! Highly recommended. File under locally owned Neighborhood Hidden Gem. We’re from VA, just visiting the area. Benstein Grille accommodated a last minute Res for 3, and WHOA!! what a cool spot. Excellent cocktails gave requisite BUZZ, and there was something for every taste and preference across appetizers, soups, entrees & desserts. JESSICA guided us through the menu and gave super-duper service. Particularly recommend the Fondue Appetizer with Pinconning Cheese and Soft Pretzels, and the 2 Onion Soup. Another shout-out for the Land and Sea entree. We’re in town for only 3 days, but DANG! We’re dangerously close to comin’ back. Big Yum.

This is our second time eating at Benstein Grill. Unimpressed by food both times. Steaks not cooked properly, green beans practically raw, general lack in flavor. Had filet both times. 1st time very fatty and undercooked. 2nd time pretty certain it was sirloin, not filet and way overcooked. We won't be back

We had a great time. Food was over solid with the exception of the fondue appetizer, wasn’t bad but just was okay. Our training server was a great sport, she even tried to accommodate my need for a left-handed steak knife that was exceptional!

Nice atmosphere and great service. One star off for my dinner (steak tips appetizer), a bit too salty. And the dinner rolls were not worth the calories. Dipping oil was very good though as was the calamari; cooked perfectly!

We used to really enjoy dining here. Over time the quality has been on a decline. Through reviews and speaking with management we were basically told to not order their food. Unfortunate, as we came for the gluten free items and had hoped we could get our family to come out and enjoy a meal with us on occasion? I don’t understand how others could not be telling them about the poor cuts of meat, uneven sizing of steak thickness that effects cook time, lack of seasoning. Pork chop sizing being way off on the two chop meal. No chorizo being present in the hash, flavorless. The Margarita made with a less than pleasant mix. I attempt to be constructive. After dining here for years and battling the freezing cold during the pandemic , not in an igloo-outside, with our own blankets. Attempting to give support to our fav local restaurants. We are told, to not order the food,or basically don’t cone back. The manager/owner never saying he tried the items himself. There are items we could for when we dine only as a couple that are good:burger,smoked wings, Rangoon’s, rolls and oil, but we seek a place for not just us two. And, after this I don’t think we want to return as a couple regardless as to the few items we used to enjoy. Perhaps others have not bothered to let anyone know how poorly their meals have been prepared or they accept spending $30+ on a meal , with drinks, that is not very appealing for a party of 4-5 or at times even more. For me, I enjoy a good meal I did not have to prepare.

This restaurant is one of our favorites however we had not been back to The Benstein Grill since just before Covid. I didn’t think it could get better than it was but it did!!! They added a gorgeous outdoor dining patio (its decorated beautifully), increased the size of the parking lot and now it’s large and easy to maneuver, the menu has gotten bigger and better with more delicious choices as well as seasonal options too and the staff is wonderful as always! We cannot wait to return! Excellent!
