Waterfront Dining on the New Buffalo Harbor.
Bentwood Tavern features “artisan comfort cuisine” crafted by local icon, Chef Jenny Drilon. Bentwood’s sophisticated spin on pub fare features gourmet pizzas fired in a wood-burning oven, fresh seafood, Amish roasted chicken, steaks and chops. Everything is scratch made from only the highest quality, and whenever possible, locally grown ingredients. Eight craft brews on tap and a well-curated wine list are worthy complements to the fresh, savory menu.
Join us for dinner daily, lunch Friday-Sunday, and weekend brunch. Outdoor dining available whenever weather allows.
Watch Jenny get cheesy with Graham Kostic of Glossed & Found.
