Benny’s Pizza Update¬†

Pizza Fans,

Bands on the patio start THIS WEEK! Fear not, our Summer 2024 band lineup has not been impacted by the fire. Check it out below!

Our rebuilding plans are still in the preparation phase, and we expect to be serving carryout from our temporary Pickup on the Patio spot into 2025. Updates will be on our website as soon as we have a timeframe.

We’ve made many improvements since the first couple of weekends sharing one kitchen. They have been helping to keep food wait times down for folks dining inside and on our patio – especially on busy Friday and Saturday nights! To tackle the resulting long wait times for carryout, we’re adding two new pizza ovens arriving by late May or early June. This means faster carryout service is coming soon to Fridays & Saturdays! Carryout Only Sunday plans are on hold for now while we set up our kitchen for more pizza ovens and plan for the future.

Thank you for sticking with us as we rebuild. More updates coming your way soon.

Benny’s Pizza

Thank you to everyone who came out to Benny’s on Monday to celebrate the total eclipse of the sun with us!!

With our raffle and the eclipse glasses we managed to raise $475.00 for Indian Lake. A big thank you to everyone who participated. The money collected will go to The Indian Lake Community Church Disaster Relief Fund at the following address:

121 North Orchard Island Road
Russells Point, Ohio 43348

We have it on good authority that 100% of donations received are going directly to help the victims with housing, cleanup, etc. and medical costs for those injured in the tornado.

Eclipse Monday was a wonderful day and a reminder of what’s to come this spring and summer with our patio once again in full swing! Check our website for the band schedule and activities.

We are doing our absolute best to accommodate our customers as we work out the many glitches brought about by the carryout building fire. We continue to wait and work with the insurance company and contractors to help us in the coming months. In the meantime, a mobile food trailer is being built for us in Texas and is expected to be in our parking lot and in use by the end of May to help us to serve you better. We ask that if you have any issues with us in any service capacity that you please give us another try. We are doing our best to continue operations as well as we can.

*** Also we are hoping for CARRYOUT PIZZA SUNDAYS starting Sunday, April 28. Times TBD. The dining room will continue to be closed on Sundays.

Sunday Closed

We hope to open for carryout on Sundays in April.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience, but from approximately 5pm-8pm on Fridays and Saturdays, when we only have the kitchen capacity to service our full dining room restaurant as we recover from the fire in our carryout building. We are working on a solution ASAP. Online ordering gets turned back on first, so the best way to check if we’re taking carryout orders again before 8pm is to download our app!

Carryout-Sunday Delayed

Our dining room is open Monday-Saturday and ready to serve your favorite Benny’s Pizza! We will need to use this Sunday, March 17, to install temporary carryout computers in the dining room building.

Although it doesn’t look too bad on the outside, the damage to the inside of our carryout building and its entire contents was devastating. We’re guessing it could be 6 months or a year for that building to be functional again. Since there is a need to add carryout capabilities in the dine-in building for an extended period of time, we need this Sunday to set up equipment.

The hope is to add some carryout hours back within a week. Be on the lookout for an announcement about when Carryout Sundays officially begins. Please keep checking our website for more updates!!

Our PIZZA is back in the dining room!

Our first big hurdle after the fire in the carryout building has been to get pizza back on the menu for our dining room, and it is officially here for dine-in!

We’re not yet ready for every day carryout, and any updates to that will be here on our website. Although we’re not set up to take your pre-orders yet, we plan to be open for Carryout-Only Sundays beginning March 17. We’re still waiting on more equipment to arrive, finding room for it, and deciding how we can operate a busy carryout business and dining room simultaneously out of our one tiny kitchen while the carryout building is down.

We want to give a special THANK YOU to the local businesses and members of the community who have lent a hand, lent equipment, or lent expertise to help us get pizza back on our menu as quickly as possible after the fire. Especially:
