The Bentoh's salads are to die for! My favorite is the blackened salmon followed closely by crab cake and steak salad. Jimmy's homemade dressing is sooo delicious that I can't go more than a month without one! I hate that they have closed their downtown...More

The bean cakes were great. They are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. They came with a pink sour cream dip that was really good too. I will definitely go back for more!

We were looking for a quick place to get something healthy for lunch. A ranger at the Lincoln house recommended Bentoh's. It was not on my list of possible places to go for lunch since it appeared so low on TripAdvisor rankings. I'm glad we...More

Box lunch, LOTS of lettuce in giant pieces, very sloppy, tasty but dripping on the shirt. I'd eat again but not choose first.
