Small little historical building. We had breakfast, with generous portions, quiet atmosphere reminiscent of a fifties type diner. Sure, the building was old, and perhaps the floors were a little uneven, but if you read the history of the building and how it was moved...More

Stopped here for a light dinner. Food was good and prices were right. Home made fries were good ! 50's diner atmosphere and decor, owned by a couple of sisters who make you feel at ease.

If you're a fan of old style diners, Bentley's is your place. It does have a local atmosphere, but our waitress was friendly and pleasant. Pork chops were excellent. Nice little place!

Friendly people, great food & good service. This is our favorite place to eat when in the UP. Simply wonderful every time! Not sure if there is Wi-Fi there, but who cares--put your phone down & enjoy!
