Ben Moore's (or less) still has the old school character I've seen there since the late 70s. Have a cold draft in the bar or fish and chips, or pork chops in the dining room. If you time it right you can catch local Catholic...More

Come here for work a couple of times a year and have just never stopped in. Wish I had sooner as there was nothing I didn't like about the place. The staff were more than polite and friendly, they conveyed that feeling of familiar welcome...More

I have eaten at Ben Moores three times, and twice got violently sick. The personnel was friendly, but that didn't make up for the bad food and bad memories.

This place is quiet, and in need of a few more diners to make it more fun. The food is very well done with both soup and salad to accompany dinner. The menu is varied, but not large. Give it a try! Much much cleaner...More

Not what it used to be. It used to be a favorite until it changed hands. Food is much different and more ordinary. Service is slow.
