I've had a really fun time at the happy hour all 3 times I've been. I guess it's my new favorite spot in the village. The drinks are great and the food is even better. It does get a little over crowded, but that's just to be expected at

It's been years since I have been here. I was surprised to see the lounge packed at 6:30 PM with the usual suspects--young doctors in scrubs, glammed out 30-somethings, and the conservative West U types.\r

The perfect place to start or end an evening in Rice Village. All the food is good but my personal favorite is the White Pizza. Good food, good ambiance.

Pros: Next door to Kelvin Arms!

Cons: None I can think of at the moment

Binjy's over in Rice Village is nice and good. First of all they don't serve Heniken, wat the hell going on. Heniken is a upscale beer, my flavorite beer, ANTHONY BOUDAIN flavorite beer. But wat got to me the most was that they serve a

Pros: girls

I LOVE Benjy's for the food, music and the fact that it's next door to the Kelvin Arm's! I always take out of town visitors to the Village for this little Oasis which is one of the few places you can actually walk in Houston without

Pros: great atmosphere, food and drinks, great location

Cons: closes early

I went during happy hour. It wasn't that crowded and the service was great. Ordered the pizza on the appetizers menu. I don't think I will ever order it again. Think crispy cardboard box with a lot of pizza sauce. I think the drinks helped

it's probably one of the few quaint spots in the rice village area where you can just lounge and chill without the loud music or loud crowds. the location is not bad: sitting on top of kelvin arms (if you want a beer run) and next to

Pros: small and cozy, romantic

Cons: crowded

I went for the first time on Friday and don't have the desire to go back. There was a good mix of people if you like snobs. We shared our table with a few others and they weren't grateful at all, more like they expected it. I didn't

Cons: highway robbery for drinks and bad service

Cute place, nice atmosphere and tasty food, but they take their "no seating incomplete parties" to an unreasonable extreme. The last time I was here meeting friends for an early dinner on a Tuesday night (read the restaurant was empty

We left cash for our bar bill (which was a few dollars over the tip, which they had already included in the bill) on our table before leaving and when our friends got ready to pay their bill, the waitress told them that we didn't leave any

Benjy's is the perfect place to meet someone you haven't seen in a while. It's decorated well enough inside so that if the weather on the patio isn't good, you can chill with a martini in a hip atmosphere.

I've gone here a handful of times and had a different experience every time. One time it was completely dead. Another, it was packed with beautiful people. The next was a mix. The food is really good, and they serve a limited menu until

Pros: Classy, Great late night food, Atmosphere

Cons: Hit or miss

It's a nice and cozy layout...when the crowd is not too large. On busy nights it's much too 'shoulder to shoulder'.

Was there Sat 6-Dec-2003 right around midnight. The place is surprisingly small. Most of the tables were taken but overall the scene was subdued and seemed dead. This place is touted as a singles scene but I noticed only two women who
