Good waitstaff, nice wine and food selections, food was all good (6 people and 6 different plates). There was nothing amazing, but it was a good experience in a nice restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Prices are not inexpensive, but not crazy high. I found it a good business dinner spot and I'd go again with a business group.

Our group of 7 was quickly seated and the service was perfect for the rest of our dinner. Rockfish, pork chop, salads - all perfect. The featured dark beer was Black Butte Porter and the 22oz are served in wonderful chilled mugs. Very relaxing and well done dinner.

Great waitress. Food served timely and most people were happy with their selection. Pizza was a little over done. Cesar salad tasted like their was dirt on lettuce. Not sure if it was salad or the dressing. Chowder was fantastic. Bacon Burger was good. Delicious bread served ahead of time.

My bestie and I decided to treat ourselves out for dinner. Service was amazingly slow. Food, NY steaks were so, so. It's a bit spendy.

One of the best happy hours in Salem. The happy hour menu is varied, high quality, and as you might expect wonderful in taste and presentation. I highly recommend the happy hour Prawns - some of the best I have ever tasted. Service staff is wonderful, atmosphere is darkish, but just right, you can have a private conversation without everyone... More

We went here on recommendations from locals and love a great dining experience. Food seemed like it had been cooked for a while. Nothing tasted fresh. I felt like I could get a better meal at a buffet! Flavorless and items cooked to death! Service was okay but could have used a little more knowledge and training.

Apps were great and dinner was very good. The filet I ordered had some tough spots in it which I did not expect from this kitchen. The servers all went out of their way which enhanced my experience.

We always enjoy the Bentley. It's rather pricey but not at happy hour, when there is a nice selection of appetizers on the menu. The service really makes it special, always top notch!

This is a great place for Happy Hour, but get there close to 4:00 pm if you want a high top. It has a great selection of wines both by the bottle and by the glass. The specialty martinis are nice but not very strong. We ordered a variety of apps and they were all good and a great value... More

My wife and I stopped in for a quick lunch and agreed to split the reuben sandwich with fries. It was excellent, not too greasy and just the right amount of sauerkraut and dressing. The fries were the best I have had in a while....they may have been double-friend but were crispy and flavorful.
