Used to be a favorite.

Great place to go later for drinks with friends! It used to be one of our favorite places to eat in town. The staff is still great, but the food quality has really degraded.

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

We have visited here many times in the past 25 years and prior to this visit have enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. While in town for a Canada Day theatre performance, stopped by for lunch, big mistake! There was no-one to greet us, I asked a server if she had a table for 2 and she replied "we are... More

Bentley's is a great place for lunch or dinner. Has a huge menu with just about anything you could want, including Putine, which is a decadent Canadian dish made of french fries with gravy and cheese over it. It is to die for and just might kill you. I recommend this place.

We arrived in Stratford the day before their holiday Canada Day. This was one of the only places open. Confusing "seat yourself" situation since there was no staff directing the line-up at the door. A sign to say "seat yourself" would be helpful. Food was good but we felt overpriced. We got a burger and fish-n-chips. Staff was friendly. Would... More

Was very busy, so we weren't expecting amazing service. However, we were expecting a little better than we received. our appetizer that we ordered never came, and the waitress didn't know because she never checked in on us. The food was mediocre - grilled chicken in the Cobb salad had weird flavouring, and the sandwich I ordered was supposed to... More

We stopped here for lunch not knowing what to expect. They have a very nice terrace, which was extremely busy and we had to wait a few minutes for a table. Good selection of beer on tap. Soup, hamburger and fries very good and prices are reasonable. Quick and friendly service and we would definitely go back when in Stratford.

One of the few places in Stratford that stays open late, after theatre, which is a plus. But be careful what you order, since it really is a pub / bar and not a restaurant. For some reason I ordered falafel when everyone else was ordering burgers and fries. Stick with the burgers and fries! I originally gave it one... More

First, if you're going in the summer right before a show, keep in mind SO IS EVERYONE ELSE. Adjust your expectations accordingly, your food will take longer and *gasp* you might have to wait for a table. That being said, it was a bit chaotic when we got there since it was an hour and a half before a show,... More

I had dinner here twice within the past week. The first time, I had chicken wings for my appetizer, followed by the chicken alfredo. The pasta was tasty, but I found the sauce to be a bit runny. The second time (last night), I had chicken wings for my appetizer, followed by the coconut-lime thai noodles. Again, like the pasta,... More
