It was my first time at Benny the Bum. I am from NYC originally. Now residing in South Jersey. I am so happy to have found out about Benny the bum. I no longer need to travel to New York's City's, City Island for excellent seafood. I ordered the Dungeness crab with Old Bay seasoning. I have never in my life, so far, tasted such a well seasoned crab. Most places either apply too much, or not enough. The food was excellent, and worthy every penny.The only concern, I have is the faucet water served with the meals. The water tasted like the pipes they came out of. I'd rather pay for bottled water next time. I ordered the raspberry iced tea, it also tasted like faucet water. Perhaps this eatery could use a water purification system. Other than that, every thing else was gravy!!!! I have read the reviews regarding loud music playing in the establishment. Thank goodness, the Sunday evening I went, it was quiet! The owner needs to understand, everyone doesn't appreciate the noise. A quiet more relaxing atmosphere would be in order. Give your patrons a choice in the matter................Long live Benny the Bum!!!

Pretty good seafood, there really isn't much else to it. But at the end of the day it gets three stars due to the lack of options on the menu. I should be able to order a few crabs and some shrimp and not have to pay 30$ but were on the butt end of a failed economy anyway. Everything suffers from inflation.
This place has really good food, and a great atmosphere. Which is all I need for a good place to have lunch, or dinner with the fam or by myself.
It was ok I will say they have awesome chicken wings
