We came here to eat before the theater and were not disappointed. Our server, Terry, made us feel at home and took great care of us. When we go back (which we plan to do) we are going to ask for her by name. Now on to the food. The Conch fritters were PERFECT (and I've been eating them for... More

We ate here prior to the Kentucky pep rally during the Bowl game. The food was ok but way over priced. The place was packed therefore the service was slow.

This restaurant is located in the Landing and has a beautiful view of the bridges and river. The service and staff were very friendly and brought the kids' food out early which was helpful. Our waiter even saw us taking pictures by the river and came outside and offered to take them for us. The reason for the two star... More

The food was mediocre for the price. We thought we were getting a local seafood place but we were there NYE and the menu was limited. We sat outside which was fun but the service was horrible. Definitely overpriced for what you get.

Our team had its pep rally @ Jacksonville Landing, so we also stopped for dinner. Though the menu was pretty basic, the food presented was good. The service was fine. A good part of a great night.

My husband and I ate there on 12-02-16 for lunch. The Crab Bisque was very nice, lots of crab. The Shrimp and grits were creamy and spiced perfectly. The New York Strip Au Poive was done exactly as my husband requested. Our server, Akm H was very attentive and friendly. I have eaten there before and will eat there again.... More

Food was overpriced and not that great. You can get better food at Red Lobster or Outback. The restaurant is starting to show its age. There is outdoor seating with a view, but nothing else special about this place. Just lower your expectations and you won't be disappointed.

I went to Benny's for dinner by myself and sat at the bar. After a few minutes, I ordered a salad with rare tuna. About 15 minutes later, I asked about the status of my order. The waitress told me it was not even in process because of a big party. Essentially, she was telling me I wasn't important. But,... More

Dennis was amazing and the food was pretty darn good as well even my very Picky 15 yr old ate almost everything on her plate. Service was very quick we went on a Sunday night. Very clean as well and we had a wonderful view.
