Bennigan's Grill & Tavern

About Bennigan's Grill & Tavern


Bennigan's was established in Atlanta, Georgia in 1976 by Norman
Brinker, a legend among restaurateurs.  Bennigan's is
still the iconic brand loved by all and is re-establishing itself as the leader
in casual dining. Committed to the welcoming, friendly and festive spirit of
Irish Hospitality, Bennigan's offers more generous pours and portions and
goes above and beyond the call of duty to deliver Legendary experiences
to every guest, every meal, every day.

In 2011, Bennigan's began a Legendary comeback by re-energizing the
beloved brand with a commitment to bring memorable dining experiences
to every guest, every day. This remarkable resurgence began with a brand
refresh at the company's two corporate locations and a plan to bring the
same menu optimization and service enhancements to current and future
franchise partners.

The mission at Bennigan's is to deliver exceptional service to every guest,
every meal, every day. In order to deliver this service, we must remember
to focus on those essential elements that will allow us to provide quality
service with a bit of Irish hospitality on the side.
