Benjamin and Jackie McGehee of Benjamin’s Great Cows And Crabs have been serving the Forest area for 12 years. The casual yet rustic restaurant is not only comfortable and family friendly but a representation of the Benjamin’s steak and seafood concept. The McGehee’s and the staff at Benjamin’s have a passion for great food, the freshest local ingredients, fine wine, craft beer and great service like nowhere else. Benjamin strives to showcase his passion through chef raised Berkshire pork, poultry & heirloom vegetables; hand-cut Angus & local Wagyu beef, sustainable seafood, game, and southern gourmet classics.
