“Good food and service, a little dated decor”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

The food and service were good. The view is very nice but not great (looking over building to the ocean). The decor looks like it has not been updated much for about 20 years; not bad just a little dated.

We would eat here again.

“Quality service and ingredients”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

A happy mix of fresh ingredients, classic recipes, attentive and sincere staff as well as a comparatively low price. My wife and I had eggs benedict and salmon hash for breakfast, and were surprised to pay about a third less than we would in Portland or Seattle. For dinner, we had excellent fresh spot prawns, a giant piece of rare blackened ahi tuna and a nice lamb chop. The view was enjoyable, the furnishings were comfortable, and the staff was a pleasure.

“BEST PLACE TO DINE IN BANDON... BREATHTAKING VIEWS, DELISH FOOD”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

I have been visiting Lord Bennett's every time I am in Bandon. My sister and brother-in-law will not go anywhere else. The view is the best of the Pacific slapping up against volcanic rocks. The ocean view is enough to bring you here but the food is delicious. I love the healthy salad and the assortment of vegetable sides served with all the entrees. Try the wild salmon, or the prawns.

“Best Food and Scenery in Bandon!”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

I just returned from a week in Bandon and found Lord Bennett's the highlight of the trip. I dined on spot prawns for an appetizer, the peanut-crusted halibut for an entre, the pecan pie for desert, and a great glass of Oregon Pinot Noir (or two!). Rich, the owner / chef, was a fabulous host and made the evening most memorable with his knowledge of the history of Bandon and the rest of the area. I would highly recommend including Lord Bennett's in your Bandon travel plans!!!

“Great view, great food, maybe the best service on the Oregon coast.”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

We decided to eat here after driving around the coast all day. We were met at the door by an extremely nice girl who sat us immediately. The menu is rather small, but the portions are very generous, and the food was among the best I've ever had on the Southern Oregon Coast. The prices were very fair, especially for the drinks. Major restaurant chains charge much more per drink, with much lower quality liquor. The staff was incredibly polite and extremely attentive. They could see my wife and i were enjoying a romantic dinner, so they didn't bother us too much nor ignore us. My glass of water was never under about 2/3 full. Had a great view during a windy day. Do not leave Bandon without giving this place a try. It was very family friendly as well, so bring the kids!
