Hot spot | Chill vibe

 

Established in 2008, Ben's Next Door is a warm and inviting locally owned restaurant and bar for everyone.

We pride ourselves on delicious food at a fair price, unique specialty cocktails, and a great beer and wine list.  We are known for our upscale Southern Cuisine, including our signature Chicken & Waffle, Shrimp and White Cheese Grits, Crispy Skin Salmon, and Jumbo Lump Crab Cake. With a 53-foot bar, 9 flat-screens, and great service, it's hard not to fall in love with Next Door.
