We've been waiting 7 years to finally get to eat in this restaurant with the best thing about it being the name (a great British car) and the second best thing the outside appearance. Sadly it does not live up the good reputation, even though it was pretty packed (which also made it incredibly noisy). It was my birthday, but we were seated in a dark place not far from the entrance. They say you can see the lake, ha, if you can look through people. Half way through my salad I ate something very, incredibly hot (and I am not to have hot or spicy) - in a salad, seriously?!?!? The meat was chewy and gristle, the potatoes under-cooked and hard, but the mushrooms and onions were great as were the warm rolls. I took most of my meal home to cook it again. It was altogether a huge let down and we will not be going back anytime soon. It sadly does not live up to either its name or reputation. J. Brunners or Baxters are much better options.

Food and wait staff get 5 stars or 4 yesses, if we were on America's Got Talent. Management gets a zero or maybe a 1 since he/they might have had something to do with the staff showing up for work. Not a fan of the dark dank interior, per se, but a fabulous patio for appetizers and drinks. So back to management, get off your lazy butt, promote the patio, and provide a full menu and services to those of us who want to spend money and time on the patio.

We are never disappointed when we go to Bentley's for a special occasion dinner. The prime rib is always delicious and you can't beat a baked potato smothered in sour cream. Two of us had a new tomato based salad dressing that we really liked. Since it was our 53rd anniversary we had "The Thing" for dessert, which is ice cream with a hard shell of chocolate and pecans and strawberries.

This is a fabulous place for dinner. The food is great. We had the steak and lobster and the shrimp scampi. Both were absolutely delicious.
Our server Steve, was very good. He took excellent care of us.
We will be back again.

Had an amazing meal that included apps, main entree and dessert. Not only was the food one of the best meals we have had the service was impeccable. Our dishes were delivered timely and whisked away as we were finished so we were not staring at "dirty places." Very impressed and will be returning.
