I had a dinner meeting here during a week night. The service was quick & pleasant. We were served bread & butter with our drinks. The food was nothing special for the price. The free range chicken was very dry & tasteless. The vegetables were bland. It was very difficult to eat because there was no moisture to the meal.... More

As with many of the patrons at the restaurant, we were staying at the Grand Hotel. The grill has a traditional look - dark woods, highly polished, large bar, etc. We initially went in for drinks, not intending to stay for dinner. A martini for me, a bourbon for him - big city prices for small pours and modest skills.... More

See separate review of the Grand hotel, which is where the restaurant is located. It has a very nice atmosphere, with fire pit and dark wood. The food was okay not great. The shrimp contrail has too much horseradish, could not eat it. The cheese quesadilla was very good though. For the price I think I will try some other... More

Service was professional and friendly. We were meeting friends there and their late arrival was treated with understanding by the staff. Tables are comfortable spaced in a high-ceilinged room with lots of stone an dark wood. I had the Korean chicken lettuce wraps that were bursting with flavor and the crab cakes which were delicate and devoid of fillers. Bentley's... More

When we arrived in Salem, we were too tired to go searching for food, so we took a chance on Bentley's Grill, which was really good. I had a flight of local wines, an appetizer and a large salad, while my partner had one of the drink specials and his second choice entrée (the first was sold out). Although there... More

We chose Bentley's for a family dinner after our daughter's graduation because of location. We will return for the food and service! Our waitress (Sherry) was wonderful -- very friendly, efficient, and attentive. All food and drinks were well-presented and delicious. Our group of 9 enjoyed a variety of items: pasta, crab cakes, soup, seafood chowder, salads, a burger, ...,... More

In Salem on business and used Trip Advisor to find a place to eat after a long day of planes, trains and automobiles. I didn't know it was a hotel restaurant until I arrived. Nothing against hotel restaurants but I know how value can be when attached to hotels. I decided to give it a try regardless. The staff were... More

Parking: You will need to go past the hotel and after the light, pull into a parking garage on the right side of the street, unless you are staying at the hotel, there is rarely and parking under the hotel itself. Service: Went for lunch on... More

The staff and deserts at bentleys are as sweet as can be! Came in just for desert (since we missed dinner) and we're delighted with the desert options.
