Don't Waste your Money

what a disappointment! On a positive note......... the Coores beer was cold beyond that the Parking SUCKS......the restroom accommodates (1) at a time? The food was GREASE spoon and left me queezy. Don't know who they cater too. Walked in and you will see a statue of a fisherman..... must be a seafood place? The buffet served chicken-parm and wings....must have been chicken from the sea. After an hour inside it w... view more

What'd you say!?!? I can't hear ya!

Took the family to Benny The Bum's for dinner on a Sunday evening. Very nice looking place inside, with a nice looking restaurant and a nice sports-bar with large LCD TV's showing a few different games for the viewing pleasure of the patrons. Our waitress was very professional, and very attentive. The food was pretty good. We had Clams Casino as an appetizer, and although the clams were a bit smaller than I wou... view more

A great night out with friends and my wife turned out to be a terrible night after my wife and I retired for the evening. We shared our dinners of shrimp and crab cakes. The service was ok but the food was not. We spent the night in and out of the bathroom. The next morning was not any better. Not until the afternoon did we get some relief. I Emailed BTB to let them know what happened, and asked them to reply. Nev... view more

Best Brownie Sundae

I am not sure why people always tend to be picky...I love eating at Benny the Bums. They have great food, although the seafood tends to be on the pricier side. But what do you expect to pay? I'd rather pay a little more for great quality. \r \r Service is service...sometimes a waitress is rocking it and sometimes you get someone that's a little distracted by the hustle and bustle going on. Patience people!!! I've a... view more

Bad Food, Bad Service: Discriminate Wait Staff? You Decide

I visited BTB with my family a month ago after previously ordering a fabulous take out dinner-food was warm and delicious. Unfortunately out dine in experience was horrible-so bad that this is the first time I ever felt the need to write a review. I must preface this review by saying that we are Asian and all other 4 parties were not (Caucasian). We were the second party to sit down in our area on this very slow ... view more

The Place is beautifull, but I went about 1 month ago and ordered a Ceaser Salad. It tasted like raw Garlics crushed in lettuce with grilled chicken. I did not eat it, the waitress asked me how it tasted, I told her I hated it.. she smiled back. I guess its good if you like RAW GARLIC\r Today I ordered the Talapia. The tomatoe topping tasted a few days old. It looked asthetically good, but the taste was not sa... view more

truly awful

I am writing to describe the abysmal experience we had at this restaurant.\r \r We went BTB because we had experienced good food, good service and a pleasant atmosphere in the past.\r \r We walked in at about 7:30 pm on November 26, and right away noticed that the music (not live, recorded) was very loud. We asked if there was a part of the restaurant that wasn't so loud. The hostess said that the entire restaura... view more
