Diner and ice cream shop. Old and musty; outdated look but not much in area to choose from. We stopped for lunch while visiting the Antique center nearby which was really a great find. I had cinnamon French toast but no way I could tell what the thin bread was. Wife had chowder and sandwich. Acceptable diner fare; breakfast all... More

Going into Benson's is sort of like stepping back in time. You get the feeling of being in your grandmother's living room with all the country decorations and friendly environment. The food was tasty, and served quickly. A great place to go when you need a quick bite!

If you see a line of people you will know it's worth the wait. The Dairy Bar is great! All their ice cream is good, but try the low fat frozen black raspberry & coffee yogurt. It may sound weird, but it's amazing! There is a fun wooden playground shaped like a pirate ship for kids to play on too.

Benson's is a good-at-the-basics diner. The service is almost always good, and the food is the same. If you're looking for simple stuff like a hamburger and fries, or breakfast food, you'll be happy.

When visiting my parents in the area when they were alive, we would go to Benson's regularly. The food was always good and at a very good price.
