My family has had a good experience dining out at Bennett Pointe Grill and Bar. This small independent restaurant has been titled "the best kept secret". Located in West Durham in the Bennett Pointe Shopping Center, it offers a casual family atmosphere. The website advertises "Low-carb and other diet dishes made to order". You may view their website, including menus and directions here.
Their large menu offers many salads, steaks, fish and burgers. Both times I have visited the server was very helpful in talking with the chef and also knew not to put croutons on my salad. My daughter enjoyed a bunless burger, with a side salad.( Word of caution: their fries are not cooked in a dedicated fryer.) I also like their salmon dishes and they have great vegetables.
If you go on a weekend, I would recommend a reservation as there was a 45 minute wait when we tried to dine there one Friday evening.
I have tried to feature less well known restaurants thus far on the Durham Blog, if you know of others please let me know.
