Wonderful food and atmosphere!!
Ben’s offers a great dining experience. Live music on the deck from March to October, daily lunch and dinner specials, friendly staff and delicious eats!!
Benjamin’s never disappoints! A great menu that boasts creative cuisine mixed with traditional favorites and seafood. BEST crab cakes in town!! Whether you’re out for date night or a family dinner, the atmosphere is just right. A friendly and attentive staff will keep you coming back for sure. More...
it's a cute place, with some really good options. we really enjoyed the fried oysters brunch.
Had our employees Christmas party last night!! Ben and staff out did themselves. Everything was perfect. Thank you all for a great evening. Laura Rosser Rosser Landscaping

Service of the crew here exceeds expectations. The cooks and servers go above and beyond to create a welcoming atmosphere with high quality food and drink. Not to mention Mama Sue's Ooey Gooey Butter Cake and other devine homemade goodies! Love it! More...

I can’t say enough good about this place!! Let’s start backwards as it deserves to be noted. Mama Sue’s desserts. Everything!!!Everything is good, but if you had to whittle it down to 1 (or 2) then try the Dulce de leche cake or the Eclair cake. So you should start with an appetizer and in my book there’s only one: Redneck Nachos Y’all. Yeeehaw! Pulled pork on house made chips with fresh jalapeños and cheese and BBQ sauce. Nuff said. Always always always get the Wagyu Ribeye when it’s on the specials menu. But the pork platter has become one of my favorites and I drool as I write this. So good. And salads? They even make lettuce something you crave during the day. How? Smoked meat and pimento cheese. That’s how. And portions are ample. Like, feast like a king and enjoy for lunch tomorrow. Which leads us back to desserts. The cheesecakes and vanilla bean creme brûlée are a great (close) second if you don’t love desserts that angels themselves crafted in heaven. If you haven’t eaten here, you are missing out on fabulous food in a super chill environment like you’re at your family’s house. Go. Now. More...
great food and staffing yes
great food and the service was good to
Elissa Grace Regan
This food is SO amazing l have never had food like this in my entire life. HIGHLY recommend eating here!
I went to Benjamin's Restaurant Friday night after receiving some potentially good news about my benefits and went a little cray cray. The Maine Pemaquid oysters ($14), broiled w/ Champagne, Parmesan & Arugula, were huge and amazing. The Tito's Handmade Vodka martini ($10.31) with Gorgonzola-stuffed olives ($1) was also on point, although a bit pricey compared to other restaurants. Service was impeccable as usual. The Ruckus performed. No cover charge. More...
Absolutely fabulous food!!! Oysters, calamari, and filet mignon were extremely good!!!
Excellent service and food!
If you are looking for a nice evening out with a twist of adventure, friendly staff, live music and delicious food Benjamin's is the place to go! I highly recomend Benjamin's! ☆☆☆☆☆ More...
Redneck nachos are a must! Every time we come here we have a great time and enjoy everything we eat/drink. Never had a bad experience :)
We have been meaning to try this place for a long time and finally got there for lunch today, shrimp tacos were wonderful, lots of shrimp and tons of favor, also bacon wrapped shrimp were delicious as well. Cold craft beer at a decent price, can’t wait to go back to try something else. Was with a group of 4 and everyone’s meal look equally as delicious as mine. Fun atmosphere. More...
Benjamin’s brunch is my favorite in Lynchburg/Forest. The hangover hash is my favorite. Dinner is also really good, and overall have never had a bad meal here. The service is always great and love the atmosphere. More...
Went there for the first time with my wife since they first opened. I was very impressed. I ordered the Hoof & Claw. It's a 10oz filet, crabcake, side salad and 2 sides. I got the sauteed garlicky spinach and baked potato. I also ordered the calamari appetizer. It was handbreaded and amazing. Everything was outstanding and so was the service. We will definitely be back. More...

Band Outlaw Revival was great but took hour for my friends to get food.They need more than one Bathroom for a large crowd.I would recommend them great people and we did enjoy More...
Been here for brunch, lunch & dinner several times, never a bad meal. Great food and menu variety.
Benjamins was the meet-up spot for our JF Class of 2007 10 Yr Reunion Weekend Kickoff. It was a perfect place to start off the weekend - great food, awesome drinks, fun live music. The atmosphere couldn't be beat. When planning the event, I constantly felt like they had my back and took good care of me and my classmates. Highly recommend them for any group gathering! More...

Julie Richardson Allen
Enjoyed brunch on the deck. There's a nice family atmosphere, and children can play out on the back lawn. We ate the mixed BBQ grille and the Hoof-n-Claw eggs Benedict. The BBQ is tender and smokey. The Benedict is a gorgeous combo of steak, crab cake, poached eggs on an English muffin, topped with Hollandaise sauce. The Coconut Shrimp appetizer with red pepper jelly is special. More...
Kristina H Becraft
Always good � people and the food!! Brunch is the best in town.
There is not a better restaurant in the area for my money. Great food, atmosphere, and people.
Best fish tacos I've ever had. Crab and Gouda soup was mighty fine, as well. I'll be back.
Brianne Ostrout Riley
My favorite brunch spot in Lynchburg. Shrimp and grits are out of this world, as is the Benjamin's Benedict. They always have interesting specials and bonus - kid friendly.

Truly a fine restaurant that has it all; from wraps to salads to steaks to fresh seafood....something for everyone here. You want something prepared a special way; all you need to do is ask...if they can do it..they will. The service is just as good as the food; add in Mama Sue's homemade deserts....Benjamin's has it all. More...
The Red neck nachos were Killer!! A great opener to a cold beer and a super cheeseburger. Great service and a welcome experience.

I had brunch today and the Bananas Foster French toast was sooooo good! I got a crab cake to take home for dinner and I took a bite and it was delicious! I will be coming back very soon!
Seeing as I have worked here for 11 years you could take this as a biased review but for real... We are hands down the best restaurant in the greater Lynchburg area. Local, organic meats and produce, untouchable drink menu, stellar servers, local, rustic atmosphere... I have been in the F&B industry for over 20 years. WE KICK ASS. More...

We have been here several times now and have never left disappointed or hungry! Service is always wonderful. Everything we have had has been delicious and the filet is amazing! The homemade flourless chocolate cake and German chocolate cheesecake are to die for!! More...
The filet crab cake stack was unreal, fish and chips, salted caramel bread pudding stuff at dessert unbelievable. Great service, great atmosphere, great food.
We went because my husband wanted to try the Wagyu and it was the only place we could find that served it. But we definitely made the right choice. Everything we tried was delicious and the service was excellent. We absolutely loved it and will definitely be back! :) More...
This is the only place to get steak in Lynchburg. Ribeye & filet were cooked perfectly - medium rare tip to tip. Service was impeccable. All I can say is WOW!
Absolutely the best beef what I have tasted in Virginia state of US. Not forgetting the delicious desserts that I recommend to taste. Also a big thank you for the service! More...
Congratulations to Benjamin's!!! Best dish at the 2014 Top Chef event at The Jubilee Family Development Center event last night. The pork belly was AMAZING.

My girlfriends and I just had a rare girls night out and failed to read the closing time on the door. The guys that work there didnt rush us out the door or even say a word... Just let us keep them over...by AN HOUR :) First, we are so sorry for keeping you and not paying attention to closing time. Second, you are amazing for letting us moms enjoy our grown up moment. Customer service is amazing! Just another reason why I love Benjamin's. More...
