Benny's on the Beach at Lake Worth Beach

Outstanding review of Benny's on the Beach along with some good quotes from their new chef. The article appeared in the Palm Beach Post today on page D2 of the print edition. Click title for link.

This is a picture taken last week of me and two friends from Michigan. It was my first time visiting John G's since they moved to their new location at Plaza del Mar in Manalapan. Food's the same, but the atmosphere is not the same. Notice that they still.are using the same sign and are clinging to the fact that they are on the beach. Not quite. The food and service were as I remembered it. It also appeared to have retained many of the same customers.

One more thing about the picture, the gentleman on the left's grandparents had a jewelry shop next to the Little Owl Bar on Dixie Hwy. This was back in the 60s and 70s. They lived above the store. Now, the area in front of their store location is a patio area for the bar. He spent a lot of time here growing up and it was interesting to hear his recollections on what Lake Worth was like back when.
