We ate at Benjy's several times during our vacation. We loved the outdoor seating. The burger sliders were great. We also liked the prime rib sandwich. The platter of nachos was very large and good.

We came to this restaurant with the family because it was close to where we were staying. We should have kept on driving. We initially were told it would be a 20 minute wait even though there were several open tables in the dining area....More

Best family run restaurant on the Island! Great food, fantastic staff and fun music! I plan to visit again, anytime I am on the Bug Island. The prime rib is something you really must go in for on Fridays!

Location on golf course was great. The food was really good. The sizzling fajitas were a huge hit. It was reasonably priced, but service was VERY slow and it wasn't real busy.
