Picked this place as a potential lunch stop based on Tripadvisor rating before leaving on vacation. It did not disappoint. A little difficult to spot even with address in the GPS. Casual bar atmosphere. Service was good, food was excellent. I had a burger which was well cook, large and very tasty. My mom's fish and chips were also very good. Not many places to choose from in Sharpsburg, but after eating at Bender's I would be looking for anywhere else.

My husband and I first went here after going to the Memorial Illumination at Antietam. The food was really great and the service was fantastic. Since then we have been back several times in 7 months and have always left there satisfied with everyone. Everyone that we have taken there has enjoyed the food and service as well. We will definitely continue to go here and bring our friends and family!

We found this place soon after leaving the Antietam Battlefield. Menu is very diverse and some of the things may not be what you are used to... Example - the chicken tenders are really chicken breasts covered in wing sauce and the mild BBQ is not mild. However, servers were quick and efficient and friendly. Portion sizes were large. The place got packed while we were there.

Ordered quesadillas and onion rings for a quick lunch. The food was fantastic and the service had a personal touch that really made the experience memorable.

Biking through Sharpsburg on the C&O you don't have a lot of options but i stopped in with my brother-in-law for dinner to Captain Benders. Good food. Staff is....well....bar staff. But if you want a good plate of food and a place to rest you are in luck with this pub. Wide selection of beers and a little beer garden out back. Nice downtown scene and lots of tv's and dart boards.
