A special place to eat in Salem in the Same building with a way above averag hotel and the Salem Convention center. The food is great, a little on the pricey side, and small portions but over all well worth the extra cost, for a special meal, has a bar with happy hour daily.

We decided to have a business dinner here due to the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews were accurate. I had the sturgeon. Excellently prepared. My wife had the butternut squash ravioli which she felt was maybe the best she has ever had. Very good service, great surroundings .... what more can be said?

Business lunch, service was great. The lunch menu is, overall, too heavy on deep fried and cream soups and heavy sauces. Soup options were only cheddar cheese and New England clam chowder. My companion's soup and salad lunch came with a Caesar salad that was drenched in dressing. I ordered the chicken lettuce wraps and was disappointed that the chicken... More

Bentley's offers many cuisine options that are well executed and presented. A well stocked bar offers many options. A happy hour daily is a nice offering here. Connected to the Grand Hotel this restaurant offers the traveler or local a great dining choice.

Popped down stairs from the hotel for some snacks and drinks. They have some good specials on food - the Korean tacos were the best of the three appetizers we tried! For drinks, they run specials on wine, beer, and rail/well. The house cocktails are worth the non-happy hour prices. Like many places in Oregon, they offer plenty of drinks... More

My son and I stopped at the Grand Hotel in Salem on our way to the Ore v UW football game. We were hungry when we arrived, and Bentley's looked good. The bar was excellent. The menu is varied, and our meal was delicious. The wine list was fairly extensive, and had a good selection of northwest wines.

Very nice atmosphere and great food and drinks. Seafood Chowder was super delicious and I almost wish I just had a bowl of that BUT am sooooo glad I stuck with Oregon Rockfish dinner. Holy WOW with the risotto it was outstanding. I don't have pics though.

We went here because we were staying in The Grand Hotel and the reviews on Trip Advisor were great. I totally agree. Excellent drinks and service and the food was delicious. One of my favorite meals of my vacation.

This is a busy, atmospheric restaurant and bar at the Grand Hotel. The chowder very good, not just clams but also shrimp and fish. The Oregon rockfish was perfectly cooked on a bed of risotto. Excellent filet mignon.
