Our second time for Lord Bennett's Restaurant and Lounge did NOT disappoint!!! Halibut choice for both of us seems to melt in you mouth!! Service is on the spot and not in your face! Views of beach and giant rocks from every angle! Horse Riding Club groups were fun to watch!.

Didn't want to venture far after a long drive, so chose Lord Bennettt's because it was close to our hotel. It was an excellent choice. Our server was particularly good, and as a local, was able to share much knowledge with me husband and me, diehard East Coasters.
Had a lovely salad with homemade cranberry vinaigrette, and at our waiter's suggestion,ordered the locally caught spot shrimp, which had a buttery lobster taste and consistency. It was served with a steamy baked potato and a trio of vegetables. There was a full dessert cart, but we opted out. But they serve a wonderful pecan diamond confection along with your check. There's also a full bar, and it's a good place for a Dark & Stormy, while watching the fog roll in and the waves crash.

We visited Lord Bennet's because of the convenience to our hotel. Had some excellent raw oysters and a good piece of halibut. Wife had a nice seafood combo. Waiter was very good, only complaint is the restaurant itself is little dated. Old tabled and chairs and wrinkled napkins.

We had a delicious dinner here, recommended by the front desk of the hotel we stayed at. The decor and atmosphere is more of a fine dining experience and the food was just that. My husband ordered the combination platter which had prawns, red snapper, calamari, steamer clams, mussels and maybe more, lol. I ordered the nut enrusted halibut. OMG. Nothing was over or under cooked, the fish was fresh tasting, and the side dishes and bread were yummy. Then dessert....I ordered the chocolate mousse, he ordered the Italian wedding cake. Both were excellent. We had a table at the window and were able to watch the ocean as we dined.
