Love that they have a covered patio

As it was forecasting for rain, it was such a treat to see a covered patio in Stratford. Not all restaurants have them in this quaint little town and it is a definite plus. Really friendly staff and food was a good portion.

Whilst staying with Daughter, Son in Law and 2 Grandchildren in Waterloo Ontario our Daughter took us along with Granddaughter to visit Stratford, while we were there we decided to eat in Bentleys which is situated on the main street. Upon entering the restaurant looked very clean and tidy and we were shown to a table where our order for... More

We had drinks and appetizers. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The appetizers were good. We loved the cozy arrangement of the tables and chairs. Decent value.

Walking around Stratford on a pretty summer day is hard to beat, and lunch at Bentley's is a fine way to pause and refresh oneself in the process. There are no pretensions here, but the pub food proved quite satisfying. My homemade black-bean burger was a nice concoction, and served with a drizzle of balsamic dressing, it rose to memorability.... More

After reviewing the menu posted outside the restaurant we ventured in to the restaurant where we ushered very quickly to a very nice and private booth. It went downhill from there. We ordered beverages from the smiley waitress. When they were delivered, it was all wrong. My wife ordered water with ice and lemon. She didn't get the lemon and... More

Bentley's is a reliable spot in the middle of the main street. They have lots of tables and booths. It is a good clean restaurant, especially if you want some privacy in a high-walled booth. There are lots of booths and tables, as well as a few bright window seats in front. Bentleys also has excellent service, and food is... More

Bentleys is highly recommended and I don't know why. We stopped here for lunch before our drive home to the States. I got the 1/2 sandwich and soup and hubby got the corned beef sandwich. The soup was tomato, and was awful. It tasted like spaghetti sauce, yuk. The sandwiches were just OK and we paid way too much for... More

My family and I ate here a few weeks ago before watching a play. We had made a reservation and showed up in time, yet had to wait over 20 minutes to be seated by a rather unpleasant hostess. Our waitress however, was really charismatic and helpful. The place seemed to be just to busy and short-staffed to handle everyone,... More

Waited over 1 hour for our meal which was simple: chicken wings and spinach salad. The food was mediocre and the spinach salad is over priced. When the food finally arrived, said something to the waitress like "finally" and she got very defensive: Kitchen was backed up and other excuses. Should have offered to reduce the cost of our meal...

Four of us booked a table for after a performance at the Avon theatre. We were there at 5 p.m., and had ordered our entrees by 5:15. 6:15 rolled around and NO FOOD. The waitress told us there had been a mix up in the kitchen and that another table received our food (hard to believe that four other people... More
