a sterile business traveller's eatery and drinkery ( did I just invent a word? ). Decent service, good food. Well stocked bar. I imagine the place can be a zoo in the middle of a convention or big event. Maybe that is why when you are there during off days, it feels a bit big and empty.

In a survey by the local newspaper, Bentley's was rated the best happy hour in Salem. The happy hour appetizers are delicious and could easily become a meal. Food is delicious and well prepared and the restaurant/bar has a pleasant ambiance.

Our reservations put us right by the fire pit with a view of the bar and its rich wood shelves and bottles giving a glow to the room. So comfortable. Our waiter was so easy to work with...we felt like any requests were reasonable. Food choices arrived including a classic ceasar salad with chicken (the small size being perfect with... More

Last visit was awful. When I asked if the fish & seafood on the menu was fresh (had to ask item, by item) the wait person had to keep retuning to the kitchen to get an answer.Turns out that EVERY fish/seafood item on the had been frozen. This place is one hour from the ocean. There is just no excuse... More

I haven't been to Bentley's since it opened. I didn't like it the first time I went and didn't really want to come back because the food was poor in flavor and the rice tasted like it was out of a box . My girlfriend's wanted to come here after work and I am glad I gave it another chance.... More

Was a special date with my wife...thought of Bentleys for its well made web site. At the end, my new york steak was undercooked, too much fat, nerves etc. Flavor less. My wife's fish was ok. Will I come back? No. I could of have a better dinner at Red lobster or Olive Garden for way less money. Alex, Salem... More

Older style room with an open fire pit, lots of wood and high ceilings. Not stuffy at all. Service staff was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Had the duck special - it was perfectly cooked and delicately seasoned. A very enjoyable meal.
