Bennie's Red Barn
5514 Frederica Road, St. Simons, GA 31522, USA
No visit to the Golden Isles is complete without a visit to Bennie's. At the Red Barn you can enjoy steaks grilled to perfection over an old-fashioned open oak flame, seafood, chicken or spaghetti in a classic setting. We have a private dining room available and would love to host your rehearsal dinner, family reunion, conference, or golf group for a dining experience you will never forget. In the winter, there will be a roaring fire in the giant fireplace. Many couples have become engaged in front of the fireplace and return each year for anniversaries. At Christmas, there is a huge tree in the middle of the dining room and Santa Clause visits with guests on Christmas Eve. For more than 60 years, locals and visitors have celebrated special family gatherings at Bennie’s Red Barn. The private Loft upstairs & “The Club” area in the lean-to are unique settings for weddings, rehearsal dinners and other special events.
Back in the day, Bennie required coat & tie attire. Today, things are a bit more casual but the family & staff try to keep many of the old time traditions alive. For instance, the house salad is still marinated in a garlic, vinegar & olive oil dressing and is intended to be served somewhat wilted. The servers will still greet you in their coat and tie and recite the evening’s menu tableside. Many of the team members have been dedicated to giving fine southern hospitality for more than 25 years! To top off your visit to Bennie’s, you may want to try the world famous, historical “Raccoon”. This after dinner treat was created especially for a group of local businessmen who have met at the same table, (also named after them) at the same time every week for many generations.
