Girls Just Want to Have Fun at Bentley's Grill

Our 3-some of ladies, out for an early dinner, enjoyed a cool, beautiful venue with a nice selection for Ladies' Night. When we arrived, very few of the after-work bunch had arrived, so we were well attended by our smiley server. The special menu offered a good selection, and we especially... read more

Nice atmosphere. Food was mediocre at best and certainly not as depicted by their advertising. Steak was sub choice at best and very tough with grizzle. Wife's pasta dish tasted out of a box. Crabcakes were mostly breading and shrimp cocktail tasted frozen. Service was good. Overall, very disappointing experience.

Since its opening I have hoped that bentleys food and service would match the decor but it just never has. The Place is incredibly noisy and the food is just average. Salem has so few places to dine yet bentleys has never been able to match DaVinci as to quality of preparation or taste and texture. If you are used... More

We have eaten here in that past and thought they had a great selection. They have drastically reduced their menu and selections. Prices have gone up alot.... my wife had two appetizers and I had the pork chop, 1 glass of wine and and bill totaling $45.00 Food was good, but no one left full. It can be a bit... More

We were there recently as part of a trip further south. We stopped in Salem on our way back to the Vancouver area of British Columbia. We found both the hotel and the attached restaurant (Bentley's) to be far above average. The food, ambiance and the service were first rate. If we were back in the Salem region we would... More

We arrived at the hotel quite late on a weeknight and were happy to find that they were serving until 10. Our waitstaff (Julie) was very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu items. We had a great meal that was served in a timely manner.

I was in Salem for business for several months and I ate at Bentleys quite often. I was never disappointed in their food, service or atmosphere. There is a lovely firepit in the center of the restaurant to warm you up during cold rainy days, I tried a lot of different dishes, and loved them all. I don't think you... More
