Like being transported to New Jersey in the 40s only better food (and much more variety) and better scenery. The diner itself is like a caricature of itself -- down to the tiles on the walls. But the service was fantastic. Our server was totally honest about what the restaurant was good at and what was just standard diner fare. My husband opted for the standard once he learned that they had run out of his first choice of liver -- the fried seafood platter. It was still ad good as or better than any diner platter he'd ever tasted. I took the recommendation of the eggplant Parmesan stuffed with spinach and feta. There must have been a good 8 ounces of spinach stuffed in there. The eggplant was delicately breaded and the sauce was tasty. We went for a very early dinner so seating wasn't a problem and we're looking forward to going back tomorrow morning for buckwheat pancakes and fresh blueberries! The price was extremely reasonable (we're from New York where diners are outrageously expensive). It was a pleasure to have so many different and unusual choices though it made deciding what to eat a real challenge. I especially liked the fact that there were lots of healthful options(not that I chose one!). Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in Bennington.

I expected and got diner fare, no less and no more. If you want to experience a real American diner, go here. The menu options are seemingly endless and the staff is very friendly. We arrived at about 3 PM, so it was a really late lunch or a very early dinner. There was no wait at all. The food came out tasty, fresh and hot. There are many vegetarian options, if that is important to you. I don't know how they can offer such a huge variety of food options within the constraints of such a small space, but they do.

Huge selection of food that comes out of a tiny kitchen. Waitresses who've been there forever. Typical diner food plus healthy choices like tofu scramble, brown rice & organic eggs to remind you that you're in VT. Cash only, no reservations. You wait until it's your turn. Definitely worth the wait.

We had looked for Diners and found the Blue Benn the staff were really nice, nothing was too much trouble they even let me take a video.
We asked if we could have breakfast at 11am they said we could gave anything we wanted.
Lovely people great venue. Thank you for being so nice to us and taking the time to answer all the questions we threw at them about Diners.
