Used to eat here not anymore after today! Ordered veggie food, my meal had beef. They denied the meat and refused to make it again. Then the other meal had ham in it. All breakfast food ordered was vegetarian! We did not eat either of our meals. :(

Review №2

I'm not from around this location, but decided to give it a go. No regrets whatsoever. You can definitely come here on a budget and have good decent priced food.

Review №3

This place is great for breakfast. It's like a Mom and Pop's place. Waitresses are awesome and the food is great. Try it you'll love it.

Review №4

Great fresh breakfast, friendly service and hot coffee that keeps coming. Had French toast sampler with poached eggs, bacon and black cherries. My husband had a Denver omelet scrambler with cheddar cheese and wheat toast. So great to eat indoors again and feel normal, if only a little while, for now.

Review №5

Prices aren't bad for the size & quality. Lots of variety, would go back.

Review №6

I will no longer eat here! We ordered meals with no meat and We found pork in 2 of our meals! We requested that the meal be remade and was refused by the owners! They said their was no meat in our meals despite showing pieces meat. So we left our server a good tip and vowed never to eat there again!

Review №7

My husband and I were very pleased with the food taste, quality, portion size and price. Top notch service as well. Bentley's pancakes was a pleasant start to our Illinois visit.

Review №8

Great American Greek-Owned restaurant that has the beast homemade soup and a menu that has anything you have a taste for.

Review №16

Been there only once so far. Large selection menu. Prices seemed reasonable. Our orders came out fast. Generous portions. Food was good, nothing special. Waitress was attentive but she came across as if she wanted to be somewhere else, as such she got a couple things incorrect with our order albeit minor.

Review №17

Met up with friends to have breakfast for dinner here and was not disappointed! I ordered strawberry banana crepes and coffee, and I was very happy with my choice, although the french toast and cheese blintzes sounded really good too. Our waitress was very nice and attentive, even a short while before closing. I'll be back!

Review №18

Review №20

This restaurant is the one I like best. I go to plenty of restaurants but to this place I keep coming back again and again. The crew is very professional and the cooking they place on your table is so good. I am always happy to have a nice dinner in this place. Highly recommended.

Review №21

The owner was extremely rude. The restaurant had only a few customers dining, but she screamed at one woman for parking in the parking lot reserved “only for customers.” The woman pleaded that she only had to pick up her daughter at a birthday party nearby, but the owner was adamant and made her move.

Review №22

Outstanding breakfast. Friendly staff. Good value. Highly recommend

Review №23

I sent my friends to this place with my highest recommendations. I go their often. I get very good feedback from my friends. The the cooking is tasty and the stuff is attentive and cooperative. always when we eat in this place we pass a gorgeous evening. warmly recommended.

Review №24

I visit this spot a lot since I work right next to it. I love how the service is always fantastic and they keep the place well kept consistently. Rates are affordable and they serve generous portions.

Review №25

Typical breakfast and pancake house. Eggs were delicious and fluffy. Coffee is good. And they do offer flavored creamer, which is nice. Sausage patties were perfect. The homestyle potatoes are a little oniony for liking , but not bad. I had the player with a chopped steak, which is basically like a burger patty. Wasnt that great. But overall, nice solid spot.

Review №26

Fantastic spot to eat something when in a rush. Their customer service is efficient, rates are reasonable, good atmosphere. I highly recommend this spot.

Review №27

Review №28

Comfort food. Great breakfasts

Review №29

Good food and I was surprised to see the size of the stake amazing and the cook made it prefect I didn't even need to add salt and pepper. If you haven't already took a trip to dine here for breakfast you should stop going to McDonald's or Dunkin donuts and take the time to slow down and really eat a full meal to start your day off right .

Review №30

Friendly service, delicious French toast. The "double egg" was fluffy and delicious. My coffee could have used a bit more attention from the wait staff but overall delicious and worth the visit. I will definitely be back, maybe I'll check out the lunch menu next time!

Review №31

Really nice wait staff , fast service, and I DID NOT have to wait all morning for my food. And good food it was , from a huge menu

Review №72

Bentley's is one of me and my s/o's favorite places. It's homey and has a great atmosphere. The service is great and the staff is super friendly, one of our regular spots to go eat. Really reasonably priced and good quality food. Bentley's is one of those places that you go to because you know it's going to be good, very casual.

Review №73

I love the food just as much as the name!

Review №74

Very good good and friendly staff

Review №75

Ordered a burger and it came out with American cheese. Said I wanted cheddar so the waitress took it back and brought it out a minute later with the American cheese scrapped off and a load of cold shredded cheddar on the cold burger. I was so confused and have never felt this disrespected at a restaurant before. Said I don't even want to eat you can take this back to the kitchen. Bill came and they charged $6 for the little side salad that came with the burger. Management and wait staff was terribly rude. Never come here. I feel bad for the bus and maintenance staff because they were very polite and friendly. Overall, there are much better places in terms of atmosphere, service, and quality of food in the area. Save your time and money!

Review №76

Excellent food and friendly efficient service

Review №77

The quality has been on a steady decline. We have gotten food with freezer burn, fruit that was obviously past its serve date, eggs not cooked to order. If you wouldn't eat it yourself, then you dont serve it to paying customers. Not sure if they're under new management or what is going on but they lost us as customers and we were going every weekend.

Review №78

Love the food love the people. Even when they are packed they are on point.

Review №80

Mom loved it but she moved near me in tn so no more bentleys she misses it

Review №81

Great place for breakfast service was good.

Review №82

Nice place. Wait staff friendly. Food awesome.

Review №83

Tried this place for the first time when our main place was closed. Kind of disappointed our waitress disregarded when we asked for an extra drink.. So there was 3 of us blankly sharing the only 2 cups of water that were brought and not refilled.

Review №84

Food was very good and very reasonable

Review №85

We weren't happy with the service or the quality of the food. We had to ask twice for water, in addition to my husband being skipped over while waiting to be seated.

Review №86

I have been going to Bentley's Pancake House since I was a toddler. I have loved it! The pancakes are buttered so deliciously thick. The omlettes (one of my favorite choices) have many toppings of your choice, all wrapped in an egg. The burgers are delectable, one juicy slob of meat with cheese and lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and more desired toppings. This restaurant is my favorite pancake house. Overall, Bentley's is highly recommended.

Review №87

Good chicken and rice soup on sundays

Review №88

They have great service and breakfast food but don't venture out past that.

Review №89

Food good but prices are going up

Review №90

Food was good and service was great.

Review №91

Didn't like them at first when they first opened because I was so used to the restaurant that was and its place previously many years ago. But I've been starting to change my mind the last couple times I've dined in, especially with the lightning fast order fulfillment during peek dining hours ( although that might just be because crepes are very easy to make)Four stars though because of the clientele. Lots of older people that like to stare at me when I'm eating like they've never seen a dude with long hair before.

Review №92

Very good, I will be back soon

Review №93

Haven't had a better pancake since

Review №94

Been a family favorite since it came to Bloomingdale! The extended hours just makes it even better! Great food and great service!

Review №95

Great food. Nice service. Great find in the area.

Review №96

Food was outstanding here. It's a nice, cozy little diner and the waitress was more than attentive in helping us. The food came out so quickly too, it was super hot. For two people it cost us less than 20 bucks for a full belly.

Review №97

Yes! Really good food. Skillets are filling and nicely seasoned. Sausage was not that tasty but the French toast had good flavors. Food comes out fast. I'm a buyer. Tell them light grease on the skillet.

Review №98

The waitress was so rude and kept rushing us all within the first 4 minutes of sitting down. My friend told her it was her 1st time here and that was on the 2nd time of her coming to the table asking what we wanted. Then proceeded to stand back a little and staring. You would think i woke up next to her the way she was acting.

Review №99

I love there Biscuits and gravy.

Review №100

Great food, decent prices, and excellent service.The low reviews seem to be sour grapes, self inflicted, never seen subpar food or poor service here.
