“Good Food, Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

We made a reservation for my birthday for a table of 4. We were able to get in right away which was nice. The restaurant is nice for Dunnellon, it's more of a finer dining place, for that area. The food was good, it didn't blow us away. The service was kinda slow, but we had our friends with us and drinks in front of us so we were ok with that. I'm glad we had the experience and may try it again. It's a nice place but a little overpriced for the quality of food and service.

“For a Special Occassion”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and a friend wanted to take us to a nice restaurant and she chose Bentlys. We are glad she did. We were seated right away in a nice booth. The settings and surroundings were very upscale for this area. Our waiter Alec was relatively new and when asking about items on the menu he was not sure and asked a more experienced waiter for the answer. This I really appreciated and respected as he just did not give us any old line. We ordered our cocktails and meal. One of the soup choices was one I never heard of Hungarian mushroom soup. I asked for a sample before ordering and was brought a small cup. It was good enough to order that as my choice of soup. The portions were large and my stuffed salmon , green beans and baked potato were very filling. A box to go was in order for our friend who had prime rib just as she ordered rare. The cost for our area is a high compared to other restaurants but definitely well worth it for that special occassion.

It took over two hours for our party to get in and out. Yes we did have a large party but, it wasn't even that busy.

“Bently's in Dunnellon”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

We just finished dinner at Bentlys and had a pretty good meal at a fairly high (for the area) price. The restaurant is clean and comfortable, but it is also dark with no windows. Service was excellent. Our two dinners (ribeye steak, and chicken piccata) were both good, but not anything special. The tab for two, with tip and no drinks or dessert was around $48.00.

Thank You for visiting us and am glad you enjoyed your meals. We, unlike other restaurants in our area, do offer some higher priced meals such as hand cut steaks and saute dishes as well as rack of lamb and duck. We do, at the same time offer inexpensive meals such as sandwiches, burgers and salads. You could easily enjoy our atmosphere with a burger or sandwich anytime starting around $6.
Hope to see you again soon and feel free to peruse the menu for these less expensive items.
