Foursquare Tips

  • I am from the South...Holy crap, that was the best shrimp and grits I have ever eaten.
  • The shrimp and grits are the best. Easily holds up to dishes I had in Atlanta.
  • Everything is great! Some of my favorites are the Catfish, Shrimp n Grits, Collard Greens, and Bread Pudding!
  • Went to Bennie's tonight for dinner. The service was great and came with a smile, but even better, the Meatloaf was the best I EVER had. The side were good. Try the yams as a side order.
  • Unlike most places in Portland, the hushpuppies here are LEGIT.
  • Just had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes with gravy here and I was so impressed that I thought I would write a tip. Turns out I was just as impressed 6 years ago when I last visited!
  • Make a reservation if you go on the weekend it seems unless you want to sit at the bar or get there shortly after they open.
  • Friendly service. Well-done refreshing cocktails. Enjoyed the fried chicken. Was envious of my friend's pulled pork sandwich. Thankfully everything was big enough for sharing!
  • Best Macaroni and Cheese around. Fried Green Tomatoes were delish too. There back patio is lovely and peaceful. Must go!
  • Kellie is the best and I'd punch a clown for the meatloaf and mac and cheese.
  • Shrimp and grits
  • get the fried pickles, not the fried chicken
  • The brisket on the new winter 2014 menu is great!
  • Awesome back patio & delicious southern food and drinks. Fried chicken is the best I have had in town.
  • On a nice sunny day, you can have dinner out back behind the restaurant. :)
  • Fat boy salad rocks!!!
  • Best fancy fried chicken I've ever had, good texture and flavorful.
  • Get the chicken!!!! Mac and cheese rocks!! Cornbread is fab!!
  • Shrimp and grits, fried pickles, and hazelnut chocolate martinis. Wow!
  • Deep fried dill pickles and sweet potato Cajun fries with creamy tomato dip is ah-mazing.
