Sentry grill is a good eat spot, but lately the service hasn't been as good. The wait staff is fine, the problem more comes from the kitchen. It took them an hour to bring me my burger and fries. The food was good, just wasn't worth the wait. I'd recommend this place to people who don't have a time crunch... More

This is a no frills little grill in a drug store located a block from the Hotel Bentley. The food was plentiful and very good. Most of the customers were locals.

love the burgers, the BLT and chicken fried steaks. Everything about this place screams good. The dated furniture, the dated menu, the dated cook. Dated only means experienced, skilled and honed to perfection.

For good food in the old drug store era then this is the place to be, the meals are always seasoned well and everyone is friendly. After you eat you can look around or just enjoy a walk through the down town area.

Stopped in for a quick bite- had amazing chicken tenders and fries and hamburgers. Great atmosphere, quick service, my kids loved it. Plus, it's right in the heart of downtown so you can park and walk downtown and see the sights.
