My husband and I ate here for the first time, and were very impressed. The food is delicious. We both had fish (I had the Rainbow Trout and he had the Chilean Sea Bass) and we were very happy with our choices. Both our meals were perfectly cooked. I asked to substitute the rice for the Yukon gold potatoes and they accommodated my request. The potatoes were yummy.

I ambience is warm and inviting. The service was very friendly and efficient. We are planning to return in the summer as they have outdoor tables overlooking the marina.

Had dinner here on cold February night. Nice crowd but service was still quick and attentive. Diverse menu selection including gourmet pizzas as well as pasta, meat and dish. Had Caesar salad with salmon - good flavored and well prepared but salmon serving was a little small. Companion had dish & chips. Huge portion of chips which were very flavorful but not very crisp. Fish was 2 large filets - hot and crisp. All dishes were very good but not 5 star outstanding. Maybe over menu choices would have been 5 stars - other aspects (service, bar, LaVallee, etc) would support 5.

We went here as a group of six. The food is freshly prepared, and you can tell they use quality ingredients. Everyone ordered something different, and I sampled a bit of everyone's. It was all so delicious. The service was not as great, but it wasn't awful. I just expect a bit more attention to drink refills and checking in after serving the meal to see if everything is okay. I would still recommend this restaurant for a nicer meal out.

We've visited thus restaurant often when in New Buffalo fir dinner. On our last trip we deceived to try brunch. It was a disappointing experience. We waited 15 minutes to be seated at a table that was empty when we arrived. We sat at the table for at least another 5 minutes before a server arrived. She seemed annoyed that she gig stuck with another table. She was nit peas the or very attentive. The restaurant dud seem to be understaffed the first 30 minutes of our visit. The food was ok, but nothing special. We ate brunch at the ate the Terrace Room(at the sister hotel property) the day before. No contest. Food & service at the Terrace room was far superior. I had two over easy eggs and they were not cooked the same , one wax very under cooked. The tasted bread was over-charred. Final sin, the server took way to long to check on coffee refills. We will definitely go back fir dinner, but for brunch we will go to the Terrace room.

Simple or Elegant, Bentwood Tavern is divine! Excellent atmosphere, excellent food, excellent service! Located inside the Marina Grand Resort, convenience and quality is everything! All entries on Menu are tasty and very reasonably priced, not overpriced as a few are in New Buffalo, it's thrilling to find ambiance and quality, especially as a guest of the Resort. Eat inside or outside, you just can't go wrong! Highly recommend. 5 Star. Enjoy
