You can't go wrong when eating at Sir Bens. The food has always been delicious. Usually order the daily special and am never disappointed. They are also very helpful in describing the different ty...pes of beers they have. The staff has always been kind, joyful, and helpful. Don't hesitate to get a meal here. It is always great.

Great tasting food, relaxed not rushed atmosphere. Good view of the lake. 1st timers need to know, no waitstaff to take your order and to go to bar to order, they will bring it out to you. We will be back!

I honestly can't like this place enough. This place felt like home. It was so cozy, the atmosphere is untouchable, and the food was the best I've had in a long time. They have a great drink selection very reasonable prices and their staff is very attentive. Will definitely be a regular spot when we come to town. Do not miss this place! See More

The War and Peace Stout (Fulton's) and 4th Anniversary sour are both great. Service was quick and easy. They have a blueberry ale that is pretty good too, but the overcast weather just puts me in of a stout mood. See More

Wow. This was the best place we visited on our vacation. The guy who greeted us was very friendly, explained the whole menu and the process, was blown away as this was the best service we had too. We ...thought people were nicer up north and it wasnt really true until we came here. The cuban pork sandwich was amazing and the nachos were definitely not just the best in town, but the best ive ever had. Well done Sir Ben! See More

A favorite for years, but kicked up several notches with Josh at the helm. Great service, great music, more greats for the draft beer selection, location, view, food. Lovely atmosphere, day or night.

I can't say enough good things about the ownership. Family friendly environment with a general love for musicians. Food is really quite good and I'm happy to say I haven't had a bad meal yet (good luc...k finishing even a small serving of nachos!) Sir Ben's has a fantastic selection of beer and is host to many special beer events providing a chance to taste very limited edition brews. See More
