Had a lovely anniversary dinner. Food, service and ambiance was the same as it has always been--they want you to have a good time, relax and enjoy. We are never disappointed, and that is what keeps us going back.

Very nice experience. Great service, food, and drinks. Attentive and friendly staff. Shrimp de jonghe was great starter. Chef prepared our filets perfectly. Bartender knows how to mix a drink. We were seated in area near bar, so noise level moderate... but able to carry on a quiet conversation. We were celebrating our anniversary and served brought us out a nice surprise. Will be back.

I'd recommend it if you are okay with mainly an older crowd. The food was very good but a little dated without much surprise. It was a full house so the conversation level was very high and I needed to shout a bit to hear my companion. If you like Frank Sinatra in the background for music, this is the place for you!

When I made the reservation I clearly stated that this was my wife’s birthday celebration and that we would like a nice table. Upon arrival the hostess was not pleasant and attempted to seat us in the bar. When we asked for a table in the main dining room we were moved to a table right next to the waitress station. Obviously no one paid attention or cared about the special request I made.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, but we normally go mid-week so we were not prepared for the noise level of a Friday night. The steaks here are juicy and perfectly cooked. The wine list is varied, with selections for every price range. We did not stay for dessert because of the almost deafening noise. It's nice to see the restaurant is so very popular, and deservedly so, but we'll go back to dining on quieter evenings at an earlier time.

Service here was outstanding. We dined with friends and were looking forward to catching up on news. The server took drink orders and left menus as soon as we sat down and then left us time to sit and talk before telling us the specials. The bartender stopped by to see if we were happy with the cocktails. When our appetizer arrived she took our dinner order but did not submit it until we were nearly finished with the appetizer. She checked up on us without being overbearing, allowing us to enjoy the evening. Our meal was excellent. My walleye was fresh and cooked perfectly. My wife had the pork chop special and ended up bringing some home. She said it was the best chop she had ever gotten in a restaurant. The dinners came with choice of soup and salad. We both had salad and the lettuce was cold and crisp. The tiramasu was large enough to split. Overall a great experience.

I had come into town from Louisiana to visit my boyfriend and requested something extra sweet when making reservations. They contacted me with a couple of ideas and made the night very special. They were super courteous and went beyond to make it a pleasurable experience. The atmosphere was romantic and relaxing.

The best filet mignon I've eaten in a long time...superb taste and texture as well as perfectly cooked rare. It was like butter melting in my mouth, and you can't beat the price for such great quality Angus either.

My husband had the lake perch with the double baked potato, which he loved both. My son had the New York strip, and thoroughly enjoyed it as well.

Seems to be a very popular place for regulars and the older crowd. The owner came over to talk with us not once, but three times. He was as sweet as can be! We'll be dining there more often and become a regular in no time flat!

Benny's is our "go to" restaurant for fine dining. The food is always delicious, the owners are personable yet professional, providing excellent service. While it is not necessarily a family restaurant for children and large family groups, it IS a wonderful escape for adults who simply want a quality dinner in
a nice setting.

Price was far too high for food. Steak was undercooked and upcharge for two twice baked potatoes was $10.00. We will probably not go again.

Our server was excellent. Between my wife and I, we had the steak filet and the shrimp marinara/bed of noodles. Unfortunately, we found both items to be bland in flavor. We had an appetizer of fried mushrooms, and they too were without much seasoning. We've eaten here before and had enjoyed the food. We looked forward to our return visit but this time around, our expectations were let down. We'll try again in the future in the event the lack of seasoning may have been a fluke. Thanks for listening.

Excellent service by Connie and the rest of the wait staff. Food was excellent. We had the Oysters Nicholas, stuffed mushrooms (on special) and the bone-in filets (also on special). We ordered them rare and they came out perfectly. The steaks melted in our mouth. Finished the dinner with a perfectly brewed cappuccino and a tiramisu. First time diners and we will definitely be back again.
