This one’s for all the seafood lovers out there! Bentley’s Grill’s often changing menu has given us the opportunity to cook up many exciting and mouth-watering seafood dishes, always made with the freshest local ingredients. In our time preparing these different appetizers, salads, and entrees, there are certain dishes that have become fan favorites.
Since we have some exciting changes coming up on our menu in the not-so-distant future, we’d thought it be fun to take a look back at some of the “All-Time Best” Bentley’s Grill Seafood Dishes as determined by you!
Northwest Seafood Chowder
This New England style chowder is made with bacon, clams, Oregon bay shrimp and assorted fresh fish. Really, it’s no surprise that this is one of our signature dishes and an absolute fan favorite. Get this bowl to start your meal on the right foot!
“The seafood chowder(w/bacon!) was actually my favorite part.”
“The second night appetizer we shared a bowl of the Northwest Seafood Chowder – this is definitely a must try – our daughter says this is now her favorite “soup”. ”
“I had the seafood chowder which was excellent. Lots of seafood and not to heavy on the potatoes.”
“Chowder was fantastic.”
“Bentley’s attentive staff, fresh foods and delicious seafood chowder make this a great place to have a good visit with friends while enjoying a meal in a lovely atmosphere.”
Seared Pacific Ahi Tuna Salad
Our Seared Pacific Ahi Tuna Salad, a mouth-watering mix of spinach, yaki soba, wasabi, and of course seared pacific ahi tuna. Whether you’re a fan of salad, seafood, or Japanese cuisine, this is the dish to try.
“Ahi yakisoba salad? Fire pit? Stocked bar? Friendly service? In Salem? Yup.”
“We enjoyed the seared ahi – tender and nicely grilled”
“Had the ahi salad..wow..great unexpected meal”
Grilled Prawn Salad
We could speak all day about this delicious salad, but we’ll just let the ingredients do the talking: arugula and romaine mixed with mama’s lil goat horn pepper vinaigrette, topped with marinated grilled gulf prawns, pancetta, grilled onions, tomatoes, avocado and shaved parmesan. Hard to stay away from this one when it’s on the menu.
Rock Fish Seafood Pasta
Rockfish over a bed of pasta, undoubtedly one of our most popular seafood dishes.
“The first day I had the Oregon Rockfish entree which was excellent.”
“The rock fish was excellent”
Grilled Peach and Apricot Shrimp Salad
This farm fresh salad is a perfect mix of peach, apricot, candied walnut, and of course shrimp. The unbeatable blend of flavors make this salad a favorite to order whenever it’s on the menu, and it’s beautiful to look at to boot!
Dungeness & Red Crab Cakes
No All-Time Best Seafood Dish list would be complete without our signature Dungeness and Red Crab Cakes, served over sesame slaw with pickled ginger and tobiko aioli. We’d like to say you should share these with friends, but that may be too much to ask once you take a bite.
“Great happy hour menu – gotta try the crab cake!!”
“I ended up ordering their crab cakes and they were amazing! They were mostly crab and didn’t have a lot of filler.”
“I really like the crab cakes and the ahi.”
“The Crab Cakes and Coconut Shrimp were one of my favorites.”
There you have it, our All-Time Best Seafood Dishes. Of course, a changing menu means these may not be currently available; don’t fret, they may be back sooner than you’d expect!
