This is a quirky place very welcoming for tourists. Coming home to New England, I was ready for lobster roll (lump meat in butter in a split-top hotdog bun with lemon) and some clam chowder. Neither disappointed. My partner's hamburger was big and cooked correctly and a mound of fries too go with it. They have great raw bar options and a great bar too! There's also this weird Grand Marnier club, where you have your own bottle. There are three floors and at lunch only the bottom floor was open. Restrooms were in the second floor so count this one out of anyone in your group can't do stairs. Second floor looked really nice and a little more formal than the ground floor.

The daily special was haddock. We were early so it was very reasonable. It was perfectly prepared with a light crumb topping. Some places drown the fish with bread; not so at Benjamin’s. Service was excellent. It was my last day in town or I would have planned on getting there for lunch since they have good specials then too.

A local bar (so we weren’t sure about getting breakfast at first) that has breakfast. We shared the delicious lobster omelette which was fresh, had spinach and havarti cheese. Service was good.

The Mac and cheese with seafood was out of this world! My boys and I came back the next day to get it again! The staff was friendly!

This place is always hopping, but it is also always consistently good! If you like raw shellfish sit at the bar and order from the raw bar... always fresh and tasty! Great food and drink menu!
