Dinner Menu

Print Friendly
The history of Bender’s Tavern can be seen in our marbled walls … our quarter-sawn oak … our wrought iron fixtures. One step inside and you’re surrounded by over a century of dining excellence steeped in Canton’s history.

Today’s Bender’s, though, can be seen in the menu. Fresh, modern takes on classic favorites.

Our seafood is flown in fresh every day from famed Foley Fish in Boston, Mass., and broiled, baked, grilled or sauteed to perfection. We also use many products raised locally by Ohio farmers and provisioners. Each evening, our chef prepares several additional specials for your enjoyment!

Executive chef Carl Falcone and his skilled team are honored to present contemporary presentations in a truly historic setting. Owner Jerry Jacob will be pleased to pair any menu offering from the best wine cellar in Canton. So while a step inside Bender’s is a step back in time, dinner at Bender’s is anything but. Reservations are recommended. Please call (330) 453-8424 or click on the tab at the top of this page to make dinner reservations for Bender’s Tavern reservations online.
