My husband and I recently stayed on Tybee and visited Benny's several times during our stay. We found it to be a very friendly little bar. Tess, Bo and everyone else that worked while we were there were FANTASTIC, as well as all the locals that we met. We had a great time and will go back again in the spring.

my husband and I walked into this great little bar, and got an real friendly welcome from the locals in there. The bartender was real sweet, and my beer was cold and prompt. I felt right at home, and we were introduced to every person who came in after us. It was like going to a family reunion! I'd recommend this bar, and we will definitely be going back our next trip there from north Ga!

I went there with several friends mostly to sing karaoke, The place was packed but the karaoke was the worst I had ever experienced. I noticed that only the young skinny girls sang and my crowd had 12 people all of which wanted to sing but after 3 hours and watching others sing 3 or4 times we just left. we have no intentions of ever going back, oh yeah and the sound was HORRIBLE. I found later that CWL entertainment was the karaoke DJ, because we tried the Rock House on the following Sunday it was truly the same situation, horrible sound and a Horny old man chasing young chicks.Bennys is a great place but the karaoke sucks

NEVER again!
Bitchiest bartender EVER!!!!
On Friday night, my 3 oldest, dearest friends and I went to Benny's to have some drinks and socialize. One redeeming quality about this place is that it is a mixed crowd. (We're 39/40.) Another could be that the place has karaoke (which I LOVE.) HOWEVER, there is one bartender in there (old woman, shortish grey bobbed hair, lots of makeup) who was literally ASKING for tips! Over the course of 2 hours, my friends ordered maybe 5 beers total ($15). I watched them tip her $3 in that time period. 20% for service that was slow from a bartender who was a beee-yotch! When I finally did go to the bar myself, (first time of the night,) I waited 10 minutes with the woman literally shooting me dirty looks. After getting her attention I ordered two beers for $6 total; I then handed her the $6, and proceeded to dig another dollar out of my pocket for a tip! While I was doing this, she looked at me with a snide, nasty tone and expression, said, "We DO take tips!" When I told my friend the woman said this, my friend snatched the dollar back off the bar and gave it back to me!
The other bartender, an older woman with short hair and glasses, was nice and professional.
Now, I'm not sure whether they just couldn't handle the tremendous volume of people-- it was Memorial Day weekend-- or if the main bartender was just a nasty individual... but either way, I will not go back.

Furthermore, the next day, my friends and I ran into some people that had been at Benny's that night, and they also commented about how the bartender was "begging for tips." They, too, said they will not go back.
I don't know who the owner is, but that bartender is surely running away potential regulars!

Pros: Mixed Crowd, karaoke

Cons: Unprofessional, nasty bartender!

I haven't done a survey to see if this statement is 100% true, but I can say that if not the coldest, it comes pretty close. And there is plenty of it at Benny's.
There are pool tables and games here as well as entertainment on the weekends. The service is always fast and friendly. Tess is a bartender who deserves a medal.
Whenever there is a parade on Tybee, Benny's provides a good vantagepoint from which to watch. the action. During the Beach Bum Parade in May where there is a profusion of water being squirted and dumped, one can stay inside Benny's, watch through the front window, drink, and stay dry.
