As always, Bender's knocked it out of the park. Delicious food, unique atmosphere, and great wine. If you have never been here, it's worth the trip. Make reservations!
Benders always provides a memorable dining experience with outstanding food and drinks and service. The seafood entrees are my favorite and never disappoint. Turtle soup is special. Love the beautiful, unpretentious old school/historic atmosphere.
I have grown up going to Bender's, so it only made sense to celebrate my 65th birthday there! All 7 in our party remarked what a great meal was enjoyed.
Hadn't been to Benders in a number of years. My friend suggested this to celebrate his recent retirement and it was a very good selection. The service was very good and the entres very good as well.
We’ve been meaning to try Bender’s Tavern for a while.... we’ve heard it’s an old gem in downtown Canton & that held up true. The food was excellent, unfortunately, small portions did seem to disappoint our group though - that’s why for food i would give a four star instead of five star rating. Everything was cooked to request & our service was fabulous. The waitress was knowledgeable of the wine options & menu - able to give her recommendations with examples upon being asked. We enjoyed our evening with friends celebrating our monthly “supper club”! My husband & I will more than likely be back to celebrate a special occasion in this beautiful old building!
Went for the escargot. Enjoyed the whole meal from beginning to end. Drinks were good too. Waitress was excellent!
Small portions. Over priced
Would not go back !
We always enjoy Bender's and really should go there more often!
My husband and I were at Bender’s for the first time in February and loved it so much we went back 2 weeks later. We enjoyed getting there an hour before our reservation to sit at the bar for the happy hour. The bartenders are very friendly and make great martinis. We also enjoyed the free mozzarella sticks and breaded zucchini they offer on Fridays in the bar. For dimmer, we couldn’t resist the king crab legs and of course their Bender fries are wonderful. They are unique to Bender’s and more like thinly sliced potatoes that are fried instead of French fries. The service was very good both times. I highly recommend going.
Great food and drinks
Our waiter was absolutely outstanding. The Cajun tuna was perfectly cooked. My wife was a little disappointed in her shrimp dish. (She should have stuck with her usual filet.) All in all, a very fine dining experience.
After hearing and reading all the reviews we had to give it a try. Not sure if we hit an off night but We did not experience what the reviews predicted. Placed in small table beside the bar which is very loud and servers constantly getting wine glasses. The food was good but not exceptional and the service left a lot to be desired. We each had spinach salad and bacon dressing which was nothing special and the prime rib which was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth but had very little flavor and the Bender’s fries were oily over cooked potatoes on a plate. The peanut butter sundae was awesome if you’re a peanut butter fan it is a must!!
Always a great meal at Benders. Great plce for special occasions and a relaxed night out.
Great service and hospitality!
Always a wonderful time at Bender’s. The food is amazing, staff is knowledgeable and courteous, atmosphere is great. We will return and recommend to anyone!!
One never expects excellent seafood in northeast Ohio, but Bender's has it. We go once or twice a year and the menu is always outstanding. The core menu is full of long time favorites, but the specials are where we found the most interesting and delicious choices. Our server this week was named Sharon and she was probably in the top 1% of servers I have ever had. Downtown Canton doesn't always ring a bell for destination location, but Bender's is a treasure in the core of that city.
FABULOUS, as ALWAYS ❤💗
Disappointed to have been relegated to the womens' room. Walked through main restaurant and it was what I heard from a former patron, and what we desired after having made reservations for 5.
It was our first time at Benders! Beyond impressed with our servers knowledge of the menu and every single item we ordered! Our food was incredible! We will DEFINITELY be back!
Wonderful experience as usual; food, service, staff and atmosphere all outstanding. As I live out of town, dining at Bender’s is the highlight of every visit.
The service was very good. Our waitress seemed to like her job, and was helpful in choosing good menu items. She had been working at this restaurant for over 20 years.
Benders tavern is great! First time there but it was romantic perfect for valentines day dinner. Delicous samon special and creme bru le was amazing . A bit pricy but well worth it.
It was quiet and very beautiful inside. Kind of reminds me of cheers. :)
Fabulous, as ALWAYS!!!
Great food and menu choices Great overall experience
Everything was excellent. Table was ready at the reservation time requested. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a real dining out experience. Not trendy, just tried and true tradition.
Great food and services
Bender's Tavern is one of Canton's oldest family owned restaurants
for fine dining. The atmosphere compliments the exquisite entrees and their
wine cellar is unbelievable for those that are vino enthusiasts. Bender's is
a great place to gather for a romantic date, catch up with friends or business
My first time here,I love historic buildings unique menus my server Steven was very kind answered questions...funny...decent value for the money is go back definately...we dressed up though u don't need to....the hot bacon dressing was awful but the duck was amazing ...😊 as was scallops
Out server was amazing at describing the different menu options. We each ordered something different and each meal was delicious!
We celebrated my mother's 94th birthday. Food was delicious, especially the turtle soup, Camp Kagel pickerel, and bay scallops. Every one commented on the pickerel. Our server was very attentive, although a bit overeager to remove plates! Fun complimentary birthday sundaes with candles!
Thanks for having us in the private dining room area! Great setting
Great dining experience. One of our favorite places
We had king salmon and lamb chops very good but overpriced! Bender's fries were way too greasy. Couldn't eat them. Excellent wine list but pricey. Server smelled like cigarette smoke.
Today was my husband’s birthday and he really enjoys Benders Scrod Foley so I surprised him by making a lunch reservation. Although we like this locally owned restaurant today was not our best visit and it was disappointing since it was a birthday celebration. Everything about the service was just a little bit off for such a fine dining restaurant. His soup was not warm when delivered so he asked to have it heated. The waitress did get it heated and it was much better. Meantime he asked for cloth napkins since they are so much more absorbent and they were putting them out for the dinner crowd anyways as they were resetting empty tables. She brought one and then asked, “ Did you just need one or did you want two?” Next came the fact that as he just started the newly heated soup, she brought our dinners . That meant his had to sit to the side and I either had to eat mine while it was warm or wait and eat with him. Not a good choice when we were celebrating his birthday. All in all although the food quality was fine, the dining experience was not the quality we have come to expect at Benders.
My husband and I love Benders. It is a historic building with charm and ambiance. The staff is always attentive and polite. The fish and steaks are our favorites, and done to perfection. My husband had the scrod and I had the salmon.
Incredible experience! Owner actually sat down and talked through the wine with us. We loved the entire experience and will return for sure! Food was amazing, by the way!
My 1st time dining there. Very good food… Neat, cool old building.. Our server was outstanding. Had sticker shock when appetizer arrived——-got 9 tiny, nickel-size scallops for $19. Very good & very expensive. Escargot were gritty w/sand.. Halibut was delicious. I’d definitely go back when in the area..
If I could rate service greater I would! Our server, Chase, was over -the- top wonderful! He was charming, personable and extremely informative. What an asset to your staff!?
If there was a down-side to the evening it was that I left my leftovers on the table when we left!
Looking forward to returning to Benders.
Food was very good, enjoyed an evening out with 3 other couples, good service.overall great exerience
