We went 5 times over 3 days. Breakfast, 2 lunches and 2 dinners. Tried something different each meal and they were all fantastic. Plus nice being on beach!

This is a very mediocre restaurant. The food wasn't good. I ordered a special (grilled salmon, potatoes, vegetable) and all three were entirely tasteless. Ive had better seafood at chain restaurants. The rest of my party was similarly disappointed in their fare. Our reservation was at 8:00 at night and the restaurant wasn't that crowded. Nonetheless, we waited an hour to be served, and the waitress was nowhere to be found most of the time. The restaurant is on the beach, but don't expect a water view after the sun goes down. There is no lighting to illumine the water or the beach after dark. I might as well have been inside any restaurant, except it was quasi-outdoor seating. Parking is metered only, so be prepared to need to feed the meter midway through the meal. I'd never go back.

Had a wonderful dinner and perfect weather on the outside deck. I had Scallops grilled to perfection served with Thai noodles, our guest chose grilled shrimp with coconut rice which she described as heavenly and my husband chose the crispy grouper with Parmesan fries and said very few words because he was far to busy enjoying his meal! All our dinners were exceptionally delicious! We all chose Key Lime Pie with homemade whipped cream and after the first bite, in unison we all said “OMG this is the best KLPwe have ever had”. The greetings and welcome we received from the MOD and Sam as our server our evening was better than excellent! See you again soon!

I had the crab cake and my husband had a burger. Both were very good. Our friends had the fried shrimp. I sampled two of them. The best I have ever had! I will be getting the shrimp on my next visit.

The food and drinks at Benny's on the Beach were excellent! Our group of four shared the nice legs clam bag which featured generous portion of king crab, snow crab and shrimp. We added scallops to our order and all of the seafood was prepared with a great spice pallet with plenty of potato, onion and corn. We added some fish tacos and fries to our order and everyone was quite full and pleased with the meal. The fresh mai tais were delicious and our meal was reasonably priced given both the quality and the beach front location. We'll be back soon!

Not the best night to be there; rainy, windy and dark. Service was slow and food was ok. The fried whole snapper was quite a presentation but taste was blah. Lacked seasoning not my favorite choice, glad I tried it but wouldn’t again. The key lime pie with lime meringue was to die for! A definite must, share it.

Disappointing, we heard that the dining at night would be good because the menu and chef that was going to be there we found it to be not up to par serve nine dollar glass of wine Served in a plastic glass we were told the dining upstairs would be great unfortunately it was just another restaurant on the beach . The coffee We ordered tasted like it was the bottom of the potl. Did Micheal seem to come faster than being in it and a fast food restaurant which made us feel like nothing was totally repaired at the point that it was just on the shelf waiting to be ordered. However we totally enjoy having breakfast there it’s awesome that’s where I would go I’ll probably never go back into the dining at night with them

While the menu was extensive there were too many separate menus necessary in order to make the good selection! The waiter did not explain the “ordering process” that clearly and with three different menus to look at it was more of an annoyance.

Fantastic restaurant on the pier in Lake Worth. Our server Angel was a gem - making food suggestions and staying on top of our needs. We had fried green tomatoes, conch fritters and shrimp and chicken paella. All was delicious, hot and great portions to share. Really fun outside ambience with great music, too.

The paella was great.
We started with a carafe of sangria which was awful--room temperature and very little fruit. Sangria should be served cold.

The food was great. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the bar while my family sat on the beach. The bartenders made great drinks and I enjoyed talking with them. Very helpful. The entertainment was great and I enjoyed singing along to the songs. Everyone there was very friendly. Dinner was on time and the food and service was great. Can't wait to go back there.

Benny’s on the Beach is an amazing contrast between perception and reality. The place looks like a dump. The food is an epicurean experience that will keep you coming back for more. Absolutely everything is delicious.

We have dined at some of the finest restaurants in the country and Benny’s food could be served in any of them.

Do yourself a favor and head to Bennys for an amazing experience. Here’s a sample of their Key Lime Pie.

Benny’s is the best place for ambience, food, drink and relaxation any time of day.
The menu is amazing, the service is outstanding, and the cocktails are great.
Benny’s is a staple whenever we have company from around the country.
It’s a slam dunk every time.

Wonderful location for a romantic evening overlooking the ocean and Lake Worth pier from a spot right on the pier itself. The decor is a little dated and has something of a greenhouse feel on the second floor inside, but the food was excellent, the view great, and the noise level perfect to have a dinner conversation and yet not overhear the neighboring table.

Loved the food. We had fish tacos which were the best in the Palm Beaches. Snapper dinner done perfectly although the rice accompanying it looked pretty, the crispy top was not to my liking. Just serve the rice as is, please. The calamari were tender and lightly breaded, and the fish and chips was a generous serving of nicely crispy batter and perfectly cook white fish. Price seemed a wee bit expensive, given that the dining area is informal and could use sprucing up for the dinner hour. The before dinner drinks were generous. The view of the ocean is incomparable - and I highly recommend this place.
