Benny the Bum's offers a selection of seafood and meat dishes. The atmosphere is very casual with some televisions around the restaurant as well as signs of Americana. The place also has a bar with a selection of various drinks. The best deals can be had from 5-7 PM when Benny's serves early bird specials including soup and salad for under $10. The portions are generous and the food is well-prepared. Their homemade soups are delicious and the seafood is fresh. Some dishes, like the shrimp scampi are actually a little too generous on garlic but generally the flavors are balanced well. The servers are friendly and there is usually enough separation between the non-smokers and those who smoke that this is not an issue. Recommended especially for an early dinner on a weeknight because on weekends and later than 7 it can get crowded.
