The fish was absolutely amazing. Prepared perfectly and the salad I ordered was delicious. The environment was just what I was looking for with a night with friends. We sat in the bar and loved the historical, rich feel. The wine was just amazing and the wine list was so extensive! Our server was knowledgeable and had wonderful suggestions. Can't... More

The ambiance begins with the door step which has had thousands of people trod upon it as evidenced by the concave nature of the stone. Once inside, you are swept away by the beautiful wood bar and the ceilings which are 20 feet high and covered with tin squares. The servers are all highly professional and the food is outstanding....

I have made many believers with the Chocolate Peanutbutter sundae. I rate... More

We do not live in Canton Ohio but have relatives nearby. When the opportunity presents itself and we always enjoy benders tavern for a fine meal. This time passing through at dinner time on Saturday there was no discussion on where to stop for dinner. My wife and I would not be together for Valentine's Day so this was perfect.... More

We get to Bender's about 3 - 4 times per year. It is always an excellent meal - especially the fresh seafood which is flown in fresh from Boston. Last Saturday night, I had the Ora Salmon and their turtle soup specialty and both were awesome. Others in my family got the halibut - another great choice. Service was also... More

Hadn't been here for awhile and decided to have dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. Great idea. The food was superb and the service was excellent. Best seafood selection we've seen in northeast Ohio. Excellent wine selection. Great ambiance. And--saw several couple we hadn't seen in awhile. A bit pricey but worth it. Overall, a grand evening. We'll be back... More

Bender's is the oldest and still one of the best restaurants in Canton. We enjoyed a wedge salad and as our main entree Halibut with the famous Bender Fries. Service was excellent and the food was too. Great place for that special occasion to enjoy good food and celebrate.

I chose Bender's because I had heard that they're seafood was the best in the area. I love seafood. They were right the scallops at $35 a plate all 12 of them(I counted) the size of a nickel, were the freshest I have ever had in my life. The Bender's fries are deep fried potatoes sliced in thin rounds and... More
