We were hoping for a good restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Unfortunately, my chicken parm. had sauce that was totally tasteless. I simply couldn't eat it. My husband's meal was OK, nothing special. The owner apologized and offered dessert. Now we have to decide if we want to give Bentlys a second chance. Lunch, perhaps.

We made a reservation for my birthday for a table of 4. We were able to get in right away which was nice. The restaurant is nice for Dunnellon, it's more of a finer dining place, for that area. The food was good, it didn't blow us away. The service was kinda slow, but we had our friends with us... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and a friend wanted to take us to a nice restaurant and she chose Bentlys. We are glad she did. We were seated right away in a nice booth. The settings and surroundings were very upscale for this area. Our waiter Alec was relatively new and when asking about items... More

It took over two hours for our party to get in and out. Yes we did have a large party but, it wasn't even that busy.

We just finished dinner at Bentlys and had a pretty good meal at a fairly high (for the area) price. The restaurant is clean and comfortable, but it is also dark with no windows. Service was excellent. Our two dinners (ribeye steak, and chicken piccata) were both good, but not anything special. The tab for two, with tip and no... More

Thank You for visiting us and am glad you enjoyed your meals. We, unlike other restaurants in our area, do offer some higher priced meals such as hand cut steaks and saute dishes as well as rack of lamb and duck. We do, at the same time offer inexpensive meals such as sandwiches, burgers and salads. You could easily enjoy... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is upscale but not stuffy. It is what I would call a "lady's place" to enjoy a fine meal. Their Beef Burgundy soup is so good and unmatched in any other local eating place. The bread is served warm, with REAL butter! The price is a little high but not overly so, especially at lunch,...

Service was very good and we were not rushed. It was a a very pleasant evening and we plan on returning in the near... More

Been there a few times and didn't like the food at all. The prices were very high also. When I drive by, there are always cars in the parking lot and I always think that I was there on an"off" day, but when I try it again, it' s the same thing. I am from Long Island NY and my... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local couple who joined us for a lunch. We were looking for good food with a quiet atmosphere so we could visit and not feel rushed. The restaurant had a group of 100 women's club members for lunch that day. In spite of the staff attending to serving that large group we... More
