“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Everything was wonderful and had no dislikes. From the service (two different meals - Lunch and Dinner) to the food, everything was awesome!

“Yummy Pulled Pork Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries - Worth 2 Visits!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Stopped at Bentley's for lunch. The place was pretty empty and so there was no wait. I had the pulled pork sandwich, which was very yummy. The sweet potato fries were very good - not soggy like they often are. My lunch companion had the Reuben and liked it so much that he insisted that we return the next day so that he could have another one! Bentley's is located in the Grand Hotel, which in turn is located in downtown Salem. All in all, a very good experience.

“Atmosphere nice food dry”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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. We opted out of dessert. This place might be good for meeting folks for drinks or dessert, but main meal could use a new chef.

“Pleasant meal, but high priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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. However, our waitstaff was charming and delightful, which always makes the experience pleasant. She encouraged us to stay for dinner. We enjoyed the seared ahi - tender and nicely grilled - and a burger - following the current trend of ridiculously big, but flavorful. Again, our waitstaff was personable and attentive. We finished the meal sharing a chocolate flourless torte, at the waitstaff recommendation. It was rather pedestrian, not outstanding and not worth the added expense. The bill came and was expectedly large, reflecting prices common in high-end large cities - seemed a bit far-reaching for a convention center in Salem. A pleasant experience for everyone except the wallet!
