Family Dining Fun

Children's Nautical Adventure

Ahoy Matey! The Original Benjamin's knows family dining and family fun! Climb into the dinghy and prepare for a realistic high-seas adventure. Captain the fishing vessel and steer her away from danger. Swab the deck or throw out a line to catch some grub. Cook your catch in the galley. Or sit and watch the fish as they swim around in their aquarium. Check out our shipbuilder's workshop while you're nearby. This is where our master shipwright works on his next masterpieces for our collection. Also enjoy our arcade and fun games!
