Menu seemed short at first but then realized I wanted to sample everything. And our fantastic waiter, Jason, obliged by bringing sample when we couldn't decide between two sides. Phillip was Jason's shadow and knew the menu inside and out. Very helpful. Won't stay gone from this one for very long.

I went for happy hour to Benjy's and really enjoyed myself. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant and the happy hour menu is very good. Great craft cocktails to choose from and the bar menu is great too. We tried the goat cheese appetizer which was delicious and one of their flatbread pizzas...also very good!

They offer a great selection of wonder appetizers at "happy hour" prices from 4-7 pm. The lamb meatballs are wonderful and the grilled octopus is tender and tasty. The serving of chicken filets was huge and enough for two and the pancetta pizza had a great sauce. The roasted Brussels Sprouts were some of the best I've ever had. Top... More

The food is absolutely phenomenal. Everything I had was cooked perfectly and bursting with flavor. SO accommodating for my gluten allergies as well! I chose two items that weren't marked gluten free on the menu and they made it happen! I would absolutely come back here! The ambiance/aesthetic I'd say is industrial chic. Very cool! The staff is SO lovely... More

We had lunch at Benjy's last month and it was fantastic! We had the Braised Beef Carnitas and the Grilled Half Pound Burger. Both were excellent! The service was exceptional and very friendly. Loads of flavor to be found here! I'll be back!

This is my first TripAdvisor review and I chose to write it on this restaurant. What a fantastic experience. Just when I thought some restaurants make you feel like they are doing you a favor serving you food, we ate at Benjys. My two children even enjoyed it, they have a kids menu and cater for well behaved kids but... More

This cool, hip joint has been around a while but is still one of the villages best kept secrets. The staff is great, the food eclectic but comforting and the wine line reasonably affordable. The quiet space allows for actual conversations and some of the dishes are epic. Get the fried brussel spouts that have this shaved salmon flakes on... More

I must say this is over-rated and over-blown, I get much better food elsewhere. I took my family which consists of me, wife and 2 children. It was not worth the 2 hour wait on Sunday to try this place for the first time. The prices were high for the portion you received. And why on earth is a kids... More

I was looking for a place for dinner near Rice University and found this place among nearby. I was very surprised. Its a lovely if small room of tables (it appears they have an upstairs loft as well??). I was there on a Wednesday night and the place was packed. Its in a little eclectic strip mall of other interesting... More
