The owners and management of Bentley’s Steak & Chop House are dedicated to providing a high quality dining and entertainment experience in a classic steak house ambience while serving you with a highly trained staff of professionals. We serve only the highest quality meats, seafood, produce, and other ingredients while making everything except our bakery products, which are delivered daily, fresh from scratch. We also feature one of North County’s most extensive wine lists that is very progressively priced. We are confident in our ability to provide this type of product and service because of our wealth of experience in the restaurant business.
