GOOD FOOD

This place used to pretty high class for the area, requiring ties and a dress code. Now it is however you want to dress. The food used to be pretty fancy, but now just wholesome food. I love the home made blue cheese dressing.

The name of this place is now "My Friends Place". Different kind of menu. The prices seem to be lower than before. We've tried it twice since the name change. The first time it was packed and the food took far too long to come out considering we ordered sandwiches. The second visit there were only 3 other parties there... More

Bentlys just recently expanded its seafood menu, adding some more delicious dishes: Basil Cream Grilled Salmon, Haddock auGratin, Garlic Mussels and several others. A friend and I shared the Garlic butter escargot which was heavenly but you had better be a garlic lover--it was strong, we loved it. Even staring at all these seafood specials, I weakened and order Veal... More

Took friends out for a seafood dinner last night, and stopped in to the Bently's. We had a wonderful experience, drinks were brought promptly, staff was very solicitous to our needs. Dinner order, with time for us to chat while enjoying our libations. Escargots delicious, were sauteed in a garlic cream sauce and gently nestled in mushroom caps. Served with... More

Had dinner here last night at an energy seminar attended by 48 people. There were only 2 servers for 48 people and they did a poor job. They offered 3 entrees; Chicken parmesan, steak and, a fish selection. It took 45 minutes after serving started to deliver all people and the customers who ordered fish were served cold or frozen...

My wife and I arrived early and were told to wait for about ten minutes. The restaurant had several tables empty that could accomadate us and our friends. It appeared that the restaurant owner had poor judgement and had under staffed the help to wait on tables. It appeared that the staff was running around trying to appease their customers.... More

Great service, terrific food, lovely atmosphere. Visited here with a group of friends for lunch last week, to celebrate a birthday. Loved it. Everything you could ask for for value, comfort and great food.

I have eaten here twice and I have not been impressed - but my wallet was! The service both times was very slow and they forgot some of the things on the order. I think that they think if they charge a high price, it makes it a good place. I do not plan to go back.

I have tried this restaurant over 15 times by my count (forced by clients and family mostly), and not ONCE have I enjoyed my meal. I'm not a picky eater by any means, but I do like a little flavor; and no matter what I order, the result is always the same---flavorless food. The service is always slow. Even during... More

We had reservations at 6:30 pm and we arrived at around 6:15pm. The restaurant was not that full our waitress informed us that there was a party of seven ahead of us. It took an hour and twenty five minutes to get our meals. One of the meals with the baked potato was cold. After speaking with some waiter, never... More
