“OUTDOOR PATIO”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

We are locals who have visited the outdoor patio twice this year.
The service by Olivia is always outstanding and the food is some of the best of the lake.

Ignore the negative reviews!!!!

“A little disappointing for our 2nd visit.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We ate here before and really like the food, particularly the salad with the Mayfair dressing. This time something was amiss with the dressing. It was almost bitter. But still, we have to give the place a very good rating for overall food and service. Would go back.

“How is this rated so high??!!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

We are from St Louis and dine frequently at good restaurants there. If this was all there was to choose from at the Lake, we would understand, but seriously folks, there is sooooooo much better food to be had, what is the deal with the exceptionally high rating???!!! Eat at Savannah Grille if you want good fresh food prepared by a CHEF vs. just a cook. We have no affiliation with them by the way, we just like our food.

Bentleys was seriously like eating at slightly better food than Ponderosa. The food was completley basic and uninspiring. The apricot shrimp appetizer tasted like a Swanson TV Dinner reheated. My husband ordered their prime rib, which is what the waiter told us they "were known for", and it was just adequate and certainly not worth the $30+ price. My filet mignon was really basic, not good at all. My understanding was they were known for their steaks, so we weren't impressed at all.

On the pro side, the main host who seated us, who seemed like maybe the manager, was very friendly and welcoming. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We never waited long for water refills, etc. He knew his restaurant dishes well and could quickly answer questions.

The ambiance was lacking in our opinion inside. It was very banquet hall feeling and most of the clientele was 60-70's. However the outside patio was wonderful and "hip", and had a COMPLETELY different vibe from the inside.

Based on food quality and price, we would definitely not be back.

“Needs updating”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Water pitcher broken. Not kid friendly (no booster seat). Everyone was friendly. Food was good, except for stuffed mushrooms. If you are going to charge 20 something a plate the atmosphere needs updating, including old style brown plastic water pitchers. Will not go back.

“Always consistently excellent.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

I have dined at Bentley's many times over the years and have never had an experience less than top notch. The menu is traditional English fare with the addition of some new and more modern dishes. The outdoor patio has added a new facet to a great restaurant. I am excited to go there with some friends soon and have a cocktail.

The service is both professional and courteous which is a hard combination to master without being stuffy and I think they have found a balance. If you are not eating here already you are missing out.
