Was in Canton for a high school basketball tournament. Wanted to have dinner after the game and did I want to go to a chain restaurant. Found Bender's on trip advisor and I'm so glad we went. The exterior looks like an old man's bar from the 50s but don't be afraid, go in and enjoy some amazing food. We... More

Benders restaurant is Cantons finest, they have a large selection of fresh Seafood and one of the best steaks you will eat, ( I recomend the Hoover Strip steak ) you will absolutely love it, and you have to try the turtle soup that they are known for. I have made many believers with the Chocolate Peanutbutter sundae. I rate... More

The wine selection is the largest around. And very knowledgeable. You will see elegance in the evening from fur coats to denim jackets. Anything goes! The food... More

Steak so tender you can cut it with a butter knife. Stacked with flavor and cooked PERFECTLY! Scrod was very flaky, buttery, and tender! Decided to try the Bender Fries - the best description I can give is: If you love the crunchy well done part of shredded hash browns, this is your side! Important to go into it knowing... More

We have been going to Bender's for over 30 years. They have connections to some of the freshest seafood available inland. Their steaks are also good. Prices are high, but when you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, it is worth it. This place has been here for a hundred years or more and it will be around for a... More

Not much has changed in the past 40 years that I have been eating at Benders. It is old Canton's finest. It is pretty consistent. Most people love to go there for fish or seafood, but the steak is pretty decent too. Not on the menu, but the regulars to know to ask for the horseradish with crackers or the... More

My family holds gatherings at Benders Tavern a lot for many reasons. We love the staff. They are truly amazing, whether they have worked there forever or just started. They really know how to make you feel welcome. We also love that there is enough room to have large parties in a back room but still have that homey feel.... More

We had halibut and the swordfish and the crab cake appetizer. Crab cake was all crab and very fresh. The "benders fries" were recommended but were the only thing I was not that found of.... More

The fish was absolutely amazing. Prepared perfectly and the salad I ordered was delicious. The environment was just what I was looking for with a night with friends. We sat in the bar and loved the historical, rich feel. The wine was just amazing and the wine list was so extensive! Our server was knowledgeable and had wonderful suggestions. Can't... More
