The drinks are solid, but not spectacular. They have great beer options during HH, but the margaritas and mojitos are made with rail liquor – no bueno. As far as the food goes, try the Mac n’ Cheese. It has a nice kick to it that balances the dish quite well. The Yucca Croquettes are a good try, too. It’s kinda like a potato cake with cheese and mayo.
Our Overall Rating: 3.4/5
Rooftop? Check. Outdoor seating? Check. What more do you need? Oh, yeah… food and drinks! The best part about Ben’s Upstairs is the rooftop (level 3) and the bar in the middle of the restaurant (level 2). Both serve as gathering spots to exchange a few laughs and pick-up lines. The food and drinks are solid, but what makes the HH worth visiting are the incredible views of the city.
