Went here about an hour before closing at about 3:30pm two Saturdays ago. I had a great plate of lovely crispy dish 'n' chips with hot chocolate and Deb had the burger and fries with a coffee. The fish was flaky and succulent. We had Indian pudding as dessert which we took away with us but when we opened it... More

We stopped in for a bite at the Blue Benn Diner. You'll step back into time when you eat there. We had Sandwiches, fries, chili, drinks. Prices are reasonable and food is good. You won't leave hungry!

Whenever I have time while passing through Bennington, I have lunch here. The absolute best wide vegetarian menu ever, anywhere. And it is fabulous food. I love the quesadilla with black beans. A little sprouts, chiles, salsa and cheese, is soooo great. Extensive and delicious menu. The waitstaff, bring back memories. Don't expect warm and cuddly. The homemade pastries, and... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way out of Bennington to our next destination on our trip to Vermont. I ordered the grilled Havarti cheese sandwich on sourdough bread and he ordered the burrito. When the waitress brought out our food my husband couldn't get over the size of the burrito. I have never seen one that big... More

We were hungry for a good breakfast after days of free motel waffles. We didn't know if it was going to be good or not but decided to wait in order to give it a try. So glad we didn't miss this place! Food was good! Coffee was good! Don't miss a chance to eat here.

A real diner, from the 1940s. Food is great, and lots of it, for minimal cost. Loved the hash browns. Eggs cooked perfectly. Coffee great.

My wife and I normally get to the Blue Benn Diner 2-3 times per year. Today, at a 8:30am breakfast, the food was terrible: eggs for eggs Benedict were incredibly undercooked and runny. The buckwheat pancake was tasteless and stale. Take another 30 minutes and drive to Up for Breakfast in Manchester or some other place in-between...anything will be better... More

I'm a barber in Rutland. Customers are always sharing information about good eats. The Blue Benn has always gotten great reviews. My wife and I decided to take a Sunday drive to check out the joint. Well worth it! The Greek omlet was excellent. Thanks!
