“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

I like seafood they have great clam chowder and crab melt. One friend hates seafood she loved her hamburger. And the last one is a vegetarian she had several choices the most she had our whole trip. Service was great.

“Tasty breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed my first Hangtown Fry for breakfast here. Gotta do oysters when visiting the beach, after all. We had a window table overlooking the beautiful garden and water feature. Service was excellent. No complaints at all.

In the past they have always had great service and food. Today, was the WORST experience ever. We had to ask for our coffee to begin with. Ask for sweetener along with silverware to stir our coffee. After watching the 2 tables who were seated 10-15 minutes after us receive their food orders, (we had been there for over 30 min) we asked our waitress about our orders. She stated there was a problem with our order ticket. We ordered ham and eggs, and an cheddar veggie, the same as the couple behind us. We opted to leave. Will we return, perhaps, we will see......
The waitress was terrible...........

“Tried & True”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

Benson's is a classic with experienced wait staff who know all the locals. The place is always packed when we are there. It's open for breakfast & lunch and the pace is fast. It's probably not the type of place where you linger over cups of tea and espresso, or expect organic ingredients, but the portions are very large - the food is hot and tasty, and the quality is consistently good. I have never had the chicken fried steak, but it looks amazing. I swear next time we're going to try it!

“Great surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

We were looking around for a place to eat breakfast at during the off season and this was it! Loved the cozy atmosphere here. The food was excellent and the prices couldn't be beat! I wish we had found it before our last day in Long Beach, because we would totally have gone back! :)
