This is definitely our go to place. It is about a 30 minute drive for us but we are never disappointed. The wife and I went for lunch. The salmon was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The Bender Burger is what I believe to be one of the best (3 meat blend) burgers in north east Ohio. It is just a plain lettuce, tomato, onion, toasted bun burger, but the combination of meats in the pattie are one of the best I have had. You can add anything else for topping that you want. We always highly recommend Bender’s.

We celebrated all our college kids home and went to Bender's at their request. Our fish, appetizers, turtle soup with Sherry, Hoover steak, and famous mini sundaes were delicious. This is such a special restaurant for special occasions, business, and a must for anyone you wish to take to dinner from out of town. Excellent!

Very good service and very good food. The halibut was terrific and the ribeye was very good. Had the mussels in wine sauce app which was really great as well. Only loser was the famous potato dish which gets cold very quickly. However, overall the meal and service were very worthwhile.

The absolute best in Stark County! Seafood, steak, etc, you cannot go wrong. Friday and Saturday prime rib is the best I’ve ever had. If you are lucky enough to be there when the Cape Scallops are in season, they are a MUST GET!

The service was first rate and we had a party of 11 for dinner. While the crab cakes were some of the best any of us have ever had, they lost a lot of Value and Food points because their very expensive “prime” ribeye was not nearly as tender and flavorful as a prime priced steak should be.
