“more than "a biker bar"”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

this place is much bigger than you would think from the road. Ok, so lots of motorcycles and their riders, but it creates a fantastic atmosphere that must be seen at least once. The beer is cold and plentiful, the food is average or maybe a little better, the wait staff great although a little overrun on a Sunday with good weather. Plenty of seating inside and out. Bands playing and open air seating out to parking lot to watch the bikes come and go. It is a world of its own.

“Super place to people watch, look at great bikes, and share a beer”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stopped by Bentley's last weekend....had a blast checking out the bikes, then the people. Everyone was really friendly....quite a mixed crowd there! 2 good bands and a well stocked bar, and plenty of restrooms made the experience enjoyable for all. Plenty of seating both inside and out. Multiple serving locations.

“Basic Biker Bar”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Everything you need to know about this place you can tell from looking at the parking lot.

The atmosphere makes this place one click above average.Big crowd of happy bikers enjoying the outdoors. A Sunday afternoon visit found lots of cold beer available and a substantial line for the food. You can fin bar seats overlooking the parking lot to watch the bike roll in and out and the banks was kicking it as well.

The food was average - your basic burgers with sides begging for seasoning. If you want a nice lunch, look elsewhere. But for the basics and a show of humanity, this place rocks.

“It's not what you think!! Well worth the stop!!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I've been to a biker bar before so a little bit hesitant and nervous at first... but once through the door, not at all! What a fun place! Everyone who works there, from the parking-direction attendant to the wait staff and gift shop attendants were all a great bunch of people!! Couldn't be any more pleasant. Arrived around 1:00 on Sunday and it was hoppin! The band was great and the beer was cold! Didn't have anything to eat, but the 2-lobster specials ($20) were passing by almost non-stop. Burgers looked great as well. It was a real treat just watching the bikers hop on their Harley's and ride out and there were plenty ridin in to take up the vacant spots! Beautiful machines! There were all kinds of people there - young and old alike - everyone seemed to be having a good time! Ladies, the bathroom was one of the cleanest I've been in!! Looking forward to our next trip back on some lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon - only next time, I'm bringing my appetite with me as well!!! I'll be back to let you know what I thought about that! As they say at Bentley's "Who has more fund that us?.... We do!" Give it a try and don't be scared!!!
