Every visit to Clear Lake, IA, I stop and eat a Guiness burger at Bennigans. The haystack onion rings and sauce on the burger is excellent. The fries are medium sized and crispy. Iced tea is fresh brewed and very good. We waited at an empty greeter station too long on our visit. Once we were greeted, service was fast and friendly. I will be back on my next trip.

We must have been there the same time as another review on this date. Waited well over an hour for a Bloody Mary and cup of soup. Server repeatedly forgot this very simple order. If in the area drive the extra few miles towards mason city and eat at a restaurant that values it's patrons.

We ate at this Bennigan's while staying at the Best Western. Ordered our lunch and then proceeded to wait a very, very long time for it. We had small children with us who generally are very good at waiting in a restaurant for a reasonable amount of time. We ran out of crackers while waiting, and drinks. The food was over-priced, mediocre at best and the service was horrible. Won't be back.

The server was very pleasant and efficient. The food was average and menu was also average. I used to love Bennigan's so I don;t know if my tastes changed or they changed.

We stopped in for dinner for my birthday. The hostess was extremely rude and clearly did not want to be there. She was chewing gum like a cow chewing cud and was filled with eye-rolling and condescending phrases for us. Oh, did I mention her uniform was visibly dirty? The server was friendly, but she did nothing for the birthday. I do not know if they changed their birthday policy, but we will go to a different restaurant next year. The food was good and very fast. The server very quickly presented us with out check, too, almost to the point that it felt like we were being given the bum's rush. The food was tasty, and the server has hope, but if I were a manager I would NOT have that hostess doing anything other than washing dishes.
