Known for fresh seafood, but.....
The steaks and pastas are delicious as well. Again, one of best surf and turf dishes served in the area (filet and lobster, around $50). The seafood is brought in from the Northeast Atlantic 4-5x/week. Like our experiences before this review, we had great service and timing of our meals(bread,salad,appetizer,entree,desert) but at the same time my wife and I were still able to have great conversation without being asked for more water every 5 minutes. If your in Downtown Canton, this is a must eat. Long established as a top restaurant in the area. Men dress from jeans and a t-shirt to full suits, but I would say a sport coat/blazer is most acceptable for the atmosphere.

Freshest seafood in the area!
Everything here was great! The sea bass I had was so fresh and cooked perfectly. It's not cheap to eat here, but it's well worth the price. And the server was super-friendly and made great suggestions. Love this place!

This is a classic fine dining restaurant - but with up to date menu options to satisfy foodies. The seafood was fresh and delicious and I can't say enough about the presentation and flavor. Service was attentive, and the server enthusiastically fulfilled my request for a "chef's choice" menu. I would visit any time I'm in Canton.

One of Canton's Finest!
We always enjoy going to Benders. We had some out of town guests in for the weekend, so we chose to dine here. The food was outstanding, as usual, and so was the service--very friendly wait staff. We would definitely go back any time, and our guests were certainly impressed!

Benders of Canton
We went here for our 15th wedding anniversary. The lobster/clambake was excellent and service was very good. Anyone who likes fresh seafood would enjoy it, I think.

Service was great
The bartender made us feel welcome, the waitress was on the top of her game and the host was definately running a smooth operation. The halibut was great and the lobster bisque was good as well. It was nice to see an old downtown building being used for a nice restaurant.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is so nice that a landmark restaurant continues its' excellent tradition of fine dining and rivals any new restaurant experience.

Still Great After All These Years
Where else can you have a great meal and amazing bottle of wine at the same place your Grandparents loved? What a wonderful place for lunch, dinner of simply a bottle of wine.

Great service, great ambiance, great food. Have never had a bad meal here. The Seafood is amazing. The Halibut melted in your mouth. Two of our dinner companions needed gluten free options and our server was very helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend for a special night out for dinner.

Charming location, amazing service
The restaurant has been here for over 100 years. It was charming and classy. There were tables for large groups and smaller tables also. The dining room was full. The menu is huge with fresh seafood flown in three times per week. I ordered the turtle soup and the scallop special. The scallops came with ratatouille and polenta. They were fantastic, as was the soup. Our waitress was fantastic. She was super personable but not intrusive. She clearly had pride in the restaurant and her job. She told us about the history of the restaurant and made it clear that she cared about her customers. I definitely recommend this gem.

Steeped in history
Annual stop for my wife and I while attending the Bridgestone World Golf Championship nearby. Terrific fresh seafood prepared with unique style. Terrific sides. Very attentive wait staff. Always a pleasure. A little pricey, but worth every penny. Be sure to try a key lime martini.

good food, marginal service
Our waitress seemed overwhelmed. Our food was very good once delivered, but they ran out of several items that we had ordered, after our order was placed. I have dined here before, and usually the service is very good, but not this time

My Birthday and the birthdays of my grown children are celebrated at Benders. I'm 87 and my children (2) are in their 50's.

Great Food, w/ Historic Atmosphere
I had not been to Benders for years and years. I loved the historic atmosphere, unique great food, great energetic server. Quiet table for 2. Got lost a few times getting there from Akron.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I had a small birthday party for another friend. It was the perfect place for it. We will go back often. It was the first time any of us had been there and we live within 30 miles of it. Need to go back.

Benders - Consistently Good!
Every time we go to Benders we know we can count on great service and food. Dennis is our favorite waiter and we request him anytime he's available. Lunch is reasonably prices, and they have lunch specials that change daily, along with the regular menu.
Benders is also great for dinner. Their seafood is excellent. It's a litle pricier, but portions are also larger.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always love going to Benders when in Canton. Not only is it a classic, but the food and service is great!!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite restaurant always does great job. Fresh fish is the hallmark.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place has a great and extensive offering (off menu) of fish features!! Service left me wanting several things, sides were not impressive at all but in the end the fish made me leave happy. Reservations we set for 7:30, they were in the weeds when we walked in and took them a 1/2 hour for the table. It looked as if the customers are trained that dinner is served between 7 and 9 then it is all over as there was only two tables still there as we left and the staff was gathered waiting to leave.

This classic restaurant maintains its reputation for delicious food and top notch service. The pork chops and steaks were perfe t as was the perfectly prepared calamari. They also offered many seafood options. Delicious.

Steaks were given to wrong
Steaks were given to wrong people. The rare steak was given to the person the ordered a medium preparation and the medium was given to the person requesting a rare steak. This caused a less enjoyable meal.
The atmosphere was terrific and otherwise, the food was great!
Our server, Stormy, was wonderful and truly enjoys her job, adding to our experience.

Birthday Night Out
Great atmosphere, old building, loved the marble and wood. Celebrating a 90th birthday so we requested a table in a corner/side of the room and were very happy with the table we were given. Server was excellent, good recommendations for drinks/food. Quick with drinks and bread, even though restaurant was very busy. Everyone enjoyed their meal, I ordered pasta primavera and it was the only thing we ordered that was just so so-a little too much olive oil. The other three in our party loved their food. Waitress provided a little ice cream sundae with candle for the birthday girl-so nice! I will definitely return and recommend this classic place to friends!

Benders - the preferred choice for any special event and whenever an incredible meal is desired! The food is always outstanding - no matter what you order especially the seafood. Keeps us coming back!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I cannot express enough how impressed I was with Benders Tavern!!! This was our first dining experience. From the food, to the service, to the environment as a whole, it was amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant! What a great place, hidden in Canton!! We are thrilled to have another option now instead of having to drive an hour to receive high quality food!

Awesome old downtown gem
Took a friend for dinner before Canton First Friday and was pleasantly surprised at how awesome the place is. Normally, I find the worst restaurants to take her to! She had a glass of wine, and I had several excellent craft beers. Our server, Aimee, was friendly, knowledgeable, and very professional. She offered her honest opinions on several menu items. We took much of her advice, and were delighted with our choices. We shared 4 appetizers (which is what we normally do) and left full and happy.

Memorable meal & night
We had the best meal/drinks here at this charming restaurant in Canton Ohio. Our server Donald was a hoot and so well versed on the menu. We have dined all around the country and found this restaurant to be one of the best we have been to. Also, the building itself is very beautiful and historical. If you are ever in Canton Ohio (maybe to visit Football Hall of Fame). Check this restaurant out and also it is a bit on the pricey side but for fresh seafood, fresh homemade rolls & desserts, plus my beef filet was melts in your mouth perfectly done. We will be back.

Enjoyable meal. Very attentive
Enjoyable meal. Very attentive service. I had not dined at Benders in some time and was pleasantly surprised with the great food. We will definitely be back..
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great atmosphere and excellent food if you like seafood. Our waiter, Joe, was top notch. He was very knowlegeable about where food came from, how it was prepared. Same for cocktails. He was attentive but not hovering. Dinner is a bit pricey for most people in Canton. Lunches are more reasonable.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The wife and I were very satisfied with our whole experience from start to finish, this was our first time we had been here but we will definitely be returning :)

Excellent.2 sizes, so if you just want to graze on other choices, you can savor these little gems !!

A must experience type restaurant
Being from Chicago, I am in the Canton area a couple times a month on Business. And I recently have learned that Bender's Tavern is great for entertaining with business customers. The seafood is some of the best served in the country. I have driven by this restaurant many times which I thought to be just a neighborhood tavern. Thanks to OpenTable I have found a true gem that I will be spending a lot more time at.

Great for Lunch!
Benders continues to deliver the best seafood in Canton. Our party of five enjoyed a wonderful variety of entrees for lunch and everything was delicious. Service was attentive and friendly; not stuffy at all. The surroundings, with the marble walls and quarter-sawn oak woodwork, are a real throwback in time but the menu is modern and large.
3/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
NOWHERE else compares- it's our fav
Bender's will always be our favorite!!! Particularly the seafood- it tops seafood even from areas close to the water like Florida. The menu is always exciting- the daily specials always contain unique items that are fun and delicious, as well as fantastic "stand-by's". We go to Bender's not only on special occasions, but when we just need a break from "everyday normal" meals- Bender's is a very special place. Our hosts and hostesses are always super, especially Julian- they're really "into" whats offered on the menu, and excited to recommend dishes based on your inquiries!
