We eat out very frequently at high end restaurants in St. Louis, so we would probably consider ourselves "foodies". Having said that, we were so pleasantly surprised by the level of quality of food at this restaurant. It's wonderful to find a restaurant at the lake that is prepared by a CHEF, not a cook!
The food was really wonderful, innovative and FRESH! Many items are purchased from local growers and you could completely tell! The salad was so fresh, it tasted like they plucked the lettuce leaves right before they served it. The homemade dressings were wonderful. I am so picky about salads and the freshness of theirs was wonderful.
We ate at Bentleys another night based on high Trip Advisor reviews, and there is absolutely no comparison. If you are a picky conoseur of food this is the place for you.
Con- the service is just basic and not that great. Waitress was nice, but not attentive. We sat for a long time waiting for check and she only had 2 tables. Also the ambiance was just adequate. Decor felt outdated, but the food was so good, it outshone any issues we had. We would definitely be back.
