Great food and wonderful service. I recommend the shrimp and grits . The chicken sandwich and plaza salad are regular favorites of mine as well.

A Durham go-to that has something on the menu for everyone...and not an obnoxious way. I am one to order the same thing at restaurants, but not here. I've had numerous items - shrimp and grits, chicken salad, the specials, you name it - and nothing ever disappoints. I always look forward to any opportunity to go back!

The service was great but my meal was another story. I ordered a spinach salad with oysters. There was so much spinach, i could have feed a colony of rabbits for a month. All that spinach and only one small egg and a cup of diced tomatoes. The oysters were excellent as usual. Please revamp that salad.

This was my second time at Bennett Pointe Grill and I was not disappointed. I got the Shrimp and Grits but forgot to take a picture because it was so good.

On a Sunday afternoon this is the place to go for a good old fashion dinner that reminds one of the kind of food that your mother used to make. The pot roast is always a great choice ad its tender, flavorful and the portions are plentiful. The service is prompt whether you are eating in or taking out. The prices are budget friendly if that is a concern.

Thanks for the great service and even better meal. I find it hard to order something other than shrimp and grits, so that's what I went with tonight too. Be back soon.

Went here for our birthdays. Great food, good atmosphere. But the best thing was the service. Our waitress (name started with a "J"), college student, provided the best service we have had in years. Always smiled regardless of our requests. We had 2 small children with us & she handled everything very well on a very busy Tuesday night.

Their daily specials are always great. The servers are wonderful. I have not found anyone who serves better food. I've become a regular for over 15 years and eating here every week is a tradition.

This place is always crowded. I highly recommend making reservations if you can. The are known for their shrimp and grits. They were a little too saucy for me, but the flavors are there. The staff is friendly and the service was good.

One of my favorite places to go with my paralegal or to meet clients. The food has never disappointed and the staff goes way beyond the extra mile to ensure fantastic service. They have some of the best shrimp and grits around.

Stopped for quick lunch during the week. Food was wonderful. Waitstaff couldn't be bothered from conversation to wait their tables. Really brought down the experience.

This diner is a Durham Gem. Excellent food, friendly service and a large menu for different taste. Located in a shopping center there has lots of parking makes this restaurant easy to locate (using Goggle Maps, of course) and is located in a residential area of west Durham. Close to the historic Civil War location Bennett Place (note the name thing).

Great fried oysters, Blackened scollops , good crab cakes. Live 2.5 hours away from this hole in the wall place that my cousin , showed us about 2 months ago when we were in Durham , at Duke Hospital to see about surgery on my back. So on a post op checking I wanted to come back and enjoy another good fried oyster dinner. Check them out , it's a great hole in the wall place to eat. Great , Great Food and staff !!! Mick Dundee

Delicious meal, great wait staff, fun decor and oodles of free parking.The restaurant is large so long lines are not a problem to get seated. Will be going back. Oh dessert menu is out of this world!

Not as good as I was hoping for or that the reviews make it out to be. For lunch anyways. Service and pimento cheese Burger we’re good but nothing special. Obviously a gem to the locals though.

This is a decent place to attend. The food is slightly unique. They have their own twist on classical favorites. We will come again. Next time, I will take pics.

Very good service and servers. Had my daughters grad party there. They put tables together and did everything to make us comfortable.

Food was good and service was good. Only 2 small complaints. My table was not given or even offered rolls until we asked for them. Usually I wouldnt complain about it because sure once the server could forget okay that happens but I heard at least 2 other tables have to ask while I was there. The second complaint is that my side salad wasnt even a full handful of lettuce. It was kind of sad looking.

I have been a loyal patron to Bennett Pointe Grill now for several years. This is my "go to" locally owned and operated spot in Durham when you want a small town feel place with good food options and cold beer. Their boneless buffalo bites are to die for. This is also a good place to go if you are a smoker as they have outside picnic tables and ash trays adjacent to the bar. Love this place!

First time eating here. Heard how good it was for years and finally decided to try it out. They have the best fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken on top. It was a huge serving, so much that I took the leftovers home and ate two more meals! Very friendly waitress and fast on getting food to our table.

I usually love this place, but the waitress was really weird to my mother. This was the first time my mom had ever been to the place, and the woman took her silverware without asking, wouldn't give it back because "she has a thing about wasting silverware", and never brought us bread because she thought I was the only one dining- we shared a plate. Mind you, I'm 9 months pregnant, and came into the restaurant starving. I was really turned off by this experience. Still, I love the food and regular service. Just a little sad that my mom will never come back..

Excellent choice to stop and eat. The food was excellent. I had baby back ribs and they were awesome seasoned to perfection. No doubt I will be returning.

Greetings! As usual 4-me, Employees mostly make or break my dining exp. I truly treasure this place via it is one of the VERY FEW old-style sea-coast type Restaurants still in operation where old-fashioned good manners by Staff are yet intact. And yes it appears a bit beat-up, but, that same is resurgent to the ambiance and vibe of decades past enjoyment there. Food was fresh, DELICIOUS & came lightly cooked as I ordered... I SHALL RETURN!

Enjoyed the fettuccine Alfredo and the veggie wrap. The food was hot and fresh. The restaurant was a bit warm for our tastes, but overall we enjoyed it and will be returning.
